These are just random shots I took of Lucas the other day. Hat is from Treasured By Holly.
What a chub! he has been starting to pack on the fat, every baby does the round phase and then stretch phase over and over, he is going through a round phase! The hat doesn't help flatter his very chubby little face! haha!

I snapped a few of Lucas after we were done. He turned 7 months old three days ago. I really can't believe it. I know I say this every month but time just flies by, I can't believe how big he has gotten, and how fast the second baby grows up. It's happening even faster then the first. It freaks me out a little!
In month 6...
Lucas has started talking and being a lot more vocal. He says ba ba ba, da da da, and some times I think he is saying pa pa pa or some form of it? I have yet to here a ma ma ma. Only when he is crying do I sometimes here a faint ma ma... but I can't really count it cause he is just whining.
He also has started this spontaneous scream that he does for fun, he thinks he is hilarious.
He has been working on a tooth the last couple days, it's got a massive bump protruding, and I think it's going to grace us with it's presence soon, but nothing yet.
He loves when he gets sung to especially when his cousin Beckham does it. I was dancing around singing Christmas songs while I was making dinner the other night while Lucas was in his high chair watching me. I'm sure he thought it was the best performance ever given!
He is such a joy! He cuddles and buries his face in your chest like he gets embarrassed.
He has started reaching out for me to take him.
He has learned how to actually jump in the jumperoo instead of just standing there playing with the toys.
He has had RSV and a double ear infection this past month. You wouldn't have even guessed it unless you listened to him breath... hes been such a good baby through it all.

where has the time gone?! How did this happen? my baby, my baby! He turned two years old yesterday! I LOVE this kid SO incredibly much! he brings so much joy into my life! despite the fact that he is crazy sometimes and going through some terrible two's. He is still SO sweet so loving and still loves to cuddle!
He asks me to cuddle him all the time. "cuddle mommy, cuddle" and he puts his arm out to wrap around my neck. He also does the whole hand on my neck thing. My little sister Mallory used to do it to my mom. it looks like hes strangling me but it's just placed there gently for comfort. He's been doing it for about 6 months or more?
He now spontaneously says "I love you mommy". LOVE it. melts your heart and you want to just say ok you can have whatever you want!
He is a little athlete. I am sure mother that has ever had a boy says this but he is naturally really good at sports! haha, I'm aloud to brag a little. It still surprises me when he can catch a ball from really far away or knock his baseball of his tee. He can throw, catch, kick a soccer ball and hit a baseball like a pro. and could do it all day.
He also loves to watch sports! he will sit with Brandon on the couch and watch a game on TV, but he especially likes to watch his daddy play softball!
He also has a quiet side where he sits and reads book after book after book. I love that he likes to read. He always has, even when he was super tiny he loved it.
He now asks for cartoons ALL the time and gets sucked into the TV when it's on. I have to admit it was nice these last couple weeks while we have been moving and trying to get stuff accomplished to have something to occupy his time. But I hate it when he sits in front of the TV like a zombie child! nothing makes me feel like a bad mom as much as letting my child sit in front of the TV forever. at least a lot of the stuff on these days is educational and interactive. but it's kind of embarrassing when he goes to his cousins house and can name ALL the shows and their characters!
He has started getting a little better with going to nursery at church. He still struggles depending on who is there that week. But I think we are making progress.
he has gotten better with his brother, more sweet, softer, and more careful, I think he is learning. He is also more protective of his brother. He will say, "NO, MY baby brother" haha... I LOVE how he says "baby Brother" it's the cutest thing ever
He is a little smarty pants, we will be driving down the road and he says look mama, horsies, 1... 2.... 3..... horsies. I say yep, their ARE three horses! good job.
He has been getting really good at going potty in the toilet. At least once a day he goes on the toilet. sometimes more then once. He is sometimes dry in his diaper when he wakes up in the morning so I'll put him on the toilet and he goes pee. and then through out the day he will tell me he needs to go and we run to the toilet. He has been doing this for probably over a month. it's really nice. It's still not every time he pees but it's pretty much every time he poops that he goes in the toilet.
Since his Birthday yesterday every time he gets asked how old he is he answers "eight" every time. haha! where did that come from?
He loves his Trucks motorcycles, and Cars. He points out every ones car and who it belongs to all the time.
He loves his cousins, and all his aunties and uncles. He loves his Grandma and papa, and he is loved by all of them as well. He really loves his cousin Brydee. Every time she comes home from school William gives her a huge hug for a good couple minutes.
He does not like to share his toys some times. He knows what toys are his and doesn't like when everyone helps them selves to all of his toys. We are working on it.
We got him a bike for his birthday. with training wheels. from di. for 6 bucks. love di!
He was an adorable dragon for Halloween.
right after he got his bike for his birthday.
at our ward trunk or treat. (maybe I'll get around to doing a Halloween post?)

He turned 6 months old a few days ago. where does the time go!? I swear the second baby goes by even faster then the first!! Things are so busy and he just keeps getting bigger! can I just please slow down the days please!!!
He had his 6 month appt yesterday his stats were....
Height 26 and 3/4 inch. 65%
Weight 17 lbs. & 0.5 oz. 48%
Head 44.5 cm. 70%
Lucas in his true form... With spit up coming out of his mouth! These next three pictures are actually like 2 months old!!, (taken with my old camera) but since I haven't done a post on my son in that long I thought I better add them! I have been HORRIBLE at blogging! I have taken a million pictures of everyone else and their dogs (literally! haha!) but haven't taken very many of my OWN children! :( I'm kinda sad about it! I want to make a goal to do better!
oh what a joy this baby is, he is getting cuter, fatter, smarter, and more fun every day!
He still spits up more then the William ever did but I think (or maybe I'm just hoping,) it's getting better.
He sequels with delight, and is a ticklish little boy! makes me laugh when he gets going!
He was the cutest Caterpillar Ive ever seen for Halloween.
He loves little kids you can tell he adors his brother, he smiles and stares at him all the time. He also really loves his cousins! Brydee, and Beckham especially.
He has sensitive skin, SO not a fan of that! William never did, and if you know me you know I definitely don't take care of my skin! haha! But Lucas breaks out with eczema on his tummy and back often. I just need to break down and buy the stinkin dreft! I'm sure it will clear it all up! :) poor kid! mean mama.
He is now getting to the age where him and William have a lot of matching clothes! :) haha! I have them matching a lot! I love it! haha even if Brandon doesn't agree always. :)
Still Never took a pacifier, (Ive been his pacifier!)
Still never took a bottle. He was chewing on Williams sippy the other day, I think we will go straight to a sippy cup. It's that time anyway.
Since we moved into my parents house he now has his crib. (he had been in his bassinet up until now) It's been an easy transition for him. He still sleeps really well. I really can't complain.
The poor kid totally has man boobs. haha.
He IS such a good baby still, he is happy and smiling and starting to babble and blow raspberry's!
Brandon and I can't get enough of him sometimes we just cant help but squeeze him! this guy is definitely loved by his parents!

(kind of a weird picture of them but I still thought it was cute I love how my mom is looking at my dad to see if he is smiling or doing a serious face? so she can match him. haha, you can tell they just love each other! love these two people so much! They are such good people, wonderful parents, and awesome grandparents!)
Ya it's been a week... our stuff is still very much EVERY where! We finally hooked our computer up too so that's better. but life is definitely not back to normal. hopefully we will get in the swing of things soon, and we will be able to clear a pathway of boxes and clothes so we can walk though our room!
