Here we go!

Lucas went from crawling one step and then collapsing on his stomach to full on crawling this weekend. On Sunday morning, we put him in his play area and he took off like a bullet. He broke through his gate, crawled into the bathroom (right for the litter box), and then back to the living room. As you may have guessed, Steve and I spent the next few hours running around like mad men trying to baby proof the house. We came to a conclusion...we need more gates!

Sunday was a fun but exhausting day for the little one. Other than using his newly acquired skill, he also had swim lessons and dinner at Donna's house. Swimming class was a success again. But, this time he was more interested in the other kids and the ceiling fans rather than swimming. I am hoping to go next week to take some photos. You see they won't let you just come in and take photos. You actually have to complete a camera consent form and the director has to approve it. I filled the form and hopefully it will get approved next week! Then at Donna's house Lucas had fun chasing two kittens around. Luckily the kittens were playful and well behaved. I know he liked the kittens but I think he preferred playing with the kitty toys instead.

We've also been moving full steam ahead with the food. This weekend he tried broccoli and grapes and on deck for new foods are: whole wheat pasta, kiwi, and peach yogurt. For those of you who don't have kids you are suppose to introduce new foods one at a time for three days before starting the next food (I had no idea about this until I had Lucas). Since I started broccoli this weekend, I need to feed him a little for 3 days to see if he has an allergic reaction. If he doesn't than we are good to go and I can introduce another food.

He has also learned the skill of clapping. He gets so excited and bangs his hands together. Unfortunately, every time I get the camera out to take a picture of this - he stops and smiles. He's a sneaky little monkey.

Lucas is "a marvel in motion." Nice to learn, also, about the introduction of baby foods! Thanks.
