Our trip to Maine

Last week Lucas and I make the trek to Maine to see Holly, Theo, and Eli (and Nate for a bit). It was awesome to see the family, but it was exhausting. With a 2 month old, 7 month old and a 2 1/2 year old on different schedule at times was insane. But, we all enjoyed ourselves and we even went out to eat twice!

Lucas loved hanging out with Theo. Anytime Theo came into the room Lucas was mesmerized by him and would crack up. Just look at the video and you'll see what I mean.

We came back to rainy Massachusetts only to find out backyard flooded. Steve was at work so I thought I would go out the back door to take pictures of the water to show the town. As I walked out the door, it slammed shut. You're probably what? Well, the door locked and Lucas was inside! I only panicked for a minute and then thought "What would MacGiver do?" I pulled one of the patio tables under a window where we have the kitty door, pushed the kitty door in, and somehow dragged my butt into the window and landed on the kitchen floor. Note to self- make a copy of the house key.

20 pounds of love!

Last week Lucas went for his 6 month appointment. The doc said he looked great and wasn't concerned about anything...even Lucas's weight. He now weighs a whopping 20 pounds 7 ounces! We have to go back at 9 months. Wonder what he'll weigh then?

Lucas was also very excited to hang out with "Auntie" Donna. Donna comes over about once a week to watch the boy. It is amazing how much more I can get done without the little one in tow. It's a win-win situation..Donna gets her baby fix, I get a bit of freedom and Lucas gets fun playtime.

Our little monkey has also been much more active. He is rolling over a lot and cooing all the time. Unfortunately, he tends to get stuck when rolling over. He usually sleeps through the night but a few times we heard shrills at 3 a.m. only to find him on his stomach with his hand stuck. Glad he's learning, not so glad he is learning at 3 a.m.

We're off to Maine for a week to visit Auntie Holly, Theo and Eli. The two mamas and 3 little boys on Peaks Island. More details upon our return!

Christine, Maya, Lucas and I enjoyed the day at the Ecotarium. This place is really cool and I know Lucas will love it once he gets a little older. It is a combination zoo, playground and museum. They even had a train that travels around the park. I know I shouldn't rush him to get older but I am just excited to think of all the cool things we can show him! I'm even excited to show his cousins, Theo and Eli, this place when they come to visit during summer vacations.

Steve made us some yummy dinner (salmon and spinach) to celebrate our three year anniversary. Can you believe it has been 3 years already? Three years and one little man later...we'll still having fun!

What a mess!

Not much has been going on during our summer vacation...thank you rain. But, Lucas has been enjoying watching daddy demolish the deck and build a new fence. Steve is teaching him the names of tools in hopes of his first word to be "sledgehammer."

In other exciting news, Lucas has decided that he would like to hold the spoon during meals. He has to learn somehow! Check out the video:
