Story Time

Becky and the boys came over Monday to help me finish a puzzle for Luke's room. Luke and Levi were having so much fun together! But when it got really quiet we went to check on them...and this is what we found. Just reading their little books with their sippy cups sitting up on the windowsill. Good little boys!


He did it again! Fell into the hamper after he threw his nonny in it. Goofy kiddo.

Zoo Membership

We're trying to get the most out of our zoo membership already. Rachel had a Friday off a couple weeks ago so the two of us took Luke. It was a nice cool day and there was barely anyone there. Wonderful!

We were able to see them feed the hippos up close. First time I've seen that. Pretty neat!


Luke has not slept in our bed with us since about the first day or two he was born (except vacations and things)...until last night. How funny(?)/ironic that it's about a week before the baby is due. We're just praying we didn't start something we're going to regret later. The little guy has just been off the last few days...naps, listening and now nighttime sleep. Hopefully this all passes soon.

Although don't tell him, but Matt and I both enjoyed having him with us last night!

11 More Days...

No baby yet. I am getting quite ready to know when she is coming. I worked my tail off Saturday vacuuming, sweeping, mopping, cleaning window panes, doing dishes...and still no baby. I was hoping I was "nesting". Guess just hoping. I did enjoy Luke's 3 1/2 hour nap yesterday though! I sat out on our swing and read for a long time. I doubt that will be happening too much once the baby comes, so that was nice.

Marley and Me

We watched Marley and Me last night with our free Redbox rental from Meijer (9MEJR24 if you are still interested...ends today).
Cute movie!!!!! I really enjoyed it. Luke sat on my lap the first half hour and watched it before he went to bed. He was cute. Every time the dog wasn't on the screen he would look at me with a concerned look on his face and start jabbering. Sometimes he would sign "more" while he was saying it too. Too funny! I kept telling him the dog would come back.
I was just so impressed how there wasn't trash in it. A nice break from normal Hollywood. If you haven't seen it yet, I hope you get to!

Luke's Newest Treat

This is Luke's newest excitement. His own HUGE sandbox! Big enough to hold him and all his cousins! Made with love by Grandpa Amstutz. While grandpa and daddy were putting it together, Luke helped unload the little shovelful at a time.

My Newest Treat

This is my wonderful early birthday present from my hubby! We got it in Amish Country when we went away a couple weekends ago. I am really enjoying it! It looks so pretty hanging from our big tree.

36 week picture

Well 36 weeks have went by and this is the first "pregnant belly" picture I've taken! I'm also including my 36 week picture from Luke for the fun of it.

Posting these is the first I have compared the two pictures. I guess I am carrying a little differently with this baby. Hhhmmm...interesting.

Trip to the Fair

Grandma and Grandpa Habegger took Luke to the fair last weekend. Cows, goats, sheep, cows, horses, ponies, cows, hotdogs, slushies, cows, ribbon fries, cotton candy and cows. I think he had a good time! Did I mention he LOVES cows?

All By Myself

I went on a walk early this morning.
It was quiet.
The sun was coming up.
The moon was still shining bright.
I walked out of town.
The earth smelled good.
I swung my arms because I wasn't pushing a stroller.
I just thought...
and thought...
and thought.

And I decided I love peace and quiet. I love mellowness. I love my handsome husband and my cutie, Lukey. I love our little family. I love my new swing. I love our little home.
I love my life.

Trip to the Zoo

Some pictures of our trip to the zoo last week. Luke had a lot of fun and we did too!

Our Little Cookie Monster

This is our little cookie monster after he was caught. He had a cookie earlier in the afternoon and then later I walked in the kitchen and this is what I found. Matt said he must have grabbed it off of the cooling rack by himself. He then started eating it and pulled a chair up by daddy at the kitchen table. Matt didn't have the heart to take it away from him because he looked so cute so needless to say this is what I found when I came in the kitchen.
