Luke's Life Lately...

My EIGHTH MONTH of Life has been pretty exciting, 
so here's what I've been up to lately...
I am getting really good at this teething thing! I got my two top teeth this month like a pro, so now I'm up to six teeth in my gummy mouth! 
In other big news, I am trying really hard to become mobile. This month I mastered scooting backwards and I have gotten as far as half crawl forward. I'm going to be following my brother around before we know it and I can't wait to keep up!
I am enjoying this thing called spring. Once we were back in Boston and so was Dad, we all went for a picnic on the Esplanade. It was so nice to sit on the blanket together watching the sailboats on the Charles River. 
I've started doing this fun head nod that Mom says looks like a move out of the show I Dream of Jeannie. If you nod at me, I'll nod right back at you and keep doing it. It's turned into a really fun game!
I also took a trip with Mommy and Levi to visit Aunt Thais and her boys this month. Dad was doing his military time, so we got to have a fun trip while he was away. While I was at the Carter's, we went to a few playgrounds and I got to try out my first SWING! It was so much fun and Levi swung right beside me. He yelled "wee" the whole time and he was really excited to be showing me how this whole swinging thing is done! I got lots of attention while I was visiting. Isaiah, Sammy and James all wanted to hold me and play with me. They are really cool just like my big brother Levi and we all have a lot of fun together.
Dad gave me a funny nickname this month, Sticky Fingers Luke, because nothing is safe if it's within my arms reach. I want whatever you have or whatever is in front of me on a table or on the floor. I've grabbed a few tasty treats off Mom's plate this month even though I haven't gotten quite that far with eating solids. I am beginning to try different fruits and vegetables, but finger foods still get my gag reflex pretty good, so Mom is taking their introduction slowly.

There have been many firsts lately...
        Swing at the playground!

It's been a great seventh month of life out of the womb and I know I have LOTS of cool first life experiences to look forward to. Lately, it's been a GRABBY EIGHTH MONTH of life.
