As I was searching online for DIY ideas for L's room, I found this bird mobile pattern from Spool and totally fell in love with it. It took me maybe a total of two hours to make, not including the walk I took with Thor to find the sticks. The mobile hangs right over L's crib and he loves looking at it. I am so happy with how it turned out!
So... it has been about four months since I last wrote a post on this blog. SO much has happened since then! Over the months I have sat down to write and haven't really known where to start so I haven't written anything. Hopefully the posts will be on a more regular basis from now on.
Here's a quick photo recap of the past four months... enjoy!
Lukas was born at 5:03pm on Sunday October 2, 2011. My labor was pretty easy and the actual delivery went fast. It was about 12 hours from when my water broke at home till I was holding him in my arms. I keep thinking back to that day and am so thankful that everything went so well and we have a happy and healthy baby boy. We couldn't be happier.
So tired! Getting dressed and ready to come home from the hospital. It was so wonderful to have all Luk's grandparents there to celebrate his birth. He is so loved.
So we have this tradition with our friends every year. We get together, have some spiced cider and carve jack-o-lanterns each Halloween. We have a contest to see who's is the best but there is never a prize... just pride. You can see Luk's first little pumpkin on the top step. A classic design for his first Halloween.
One month old!
My parents always took photos of us on the first day of school and I've decided to keep that tradition alive. Here is Luk ready for his first day of school. I would of course rather stay home with him, but that isn't in the cards right now. I know he is in good hands while I'm at school each day. The best part of my day is when I pick him up and he's all smiles when I walk in the door :-)
2 months old! Totally posing for the camera.
Picking out Luk's first Christmas Tree. All the holiday traditions were much more meaningful this year.
First hockey game at PSU. He's already a little athlete. His legs never stop moving!
He's so happy all the time. Wakes up smiling and laughs all day. He is absolutely the best and makes us so very thankful.
3 months old!
Best friends :-) Thor is never too far away from Luk and is always bringing him bones and balls to play with. Thor will be SO excited when Luk can actually play with him someday!
It's true what everyone says. They do grow so fast!
