We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are." ~Marjorie Pay Hinckley~

Puddles and Sand...Bring it on.

By the way:

Dear Makers of Butt-Paste diaper cream,
Not only does your amazing potion heal the wounded Popo, but the little tubes you make sooth his little soul. Thank you Butt Paste.

Stand and Be Counted- Citizens and Aliens!

Puzzling indeed my dear Watson...

While you were out...

Dear Dad,
While you were out, I soiled myself in Strawberry bliss, as you can see. I also played with puzzles and basically worked really hard everyday! All that playing is tiring! Thanks for the Bio-Reis!! Mir war den Rest egal! HAHA!

Where am I now?

Oh this little one cracks me up! We've had a lot of fun this week.

"And ...[Lukas] dwellt in a tent"

Let's just say we had a lot of fun the other morning when it was a bit cold to go out!!

And look! Dad can get Lukas to stand with no help for just a second to two at a time!

Daddy & Lukas

Most Sundays Jared gets Lukas ready for church so that I can get ready, and he comes and brings Lukas to me in some adorable outfit, all smiley and ready to go! So echt suess!

Here's us discovering my fun present from mom!
Lukas goes ga-ga over the balloons tied to his high chair!!

Lukas und die Erdbeere

Heute kann es regnen...

I had a wonderful birthday! Mom sent me this amAzing edible arrangement!!! I especially love how they make the flowers with pineapple and cantalope. SO cute! Lukas ate fresh strawberries for the first time, making the most peculiar faces as he tried to bite into the fresh plump red fruit!

Jared was amazing, as usual, taking Lukas for the morning so I could sleep an extra hour, then made me an appointment for a massage, which was so heavenly!! That afternoon we ordered in lunch from Kathmandu Kitchen (think curry and rice- so good) and hunkered down for a movie with ordered out pizza. We usually don't go out to eat due to health and budget- but it sure was fun to splurge a little for my birthday :)
I especially loved hanging out all with my best friend all day since Jared took the day off of work for me. :) He's amazing and I sure love him!

Check out the pictures of Lukas with the balloons! 3 came with my fruit bouquet and Ixchelle stopped by in the evening with a sweet birthday surprise :) LOVE balloons. So fun!

11 months already???

Whoa. One day I woke up (today) and realized my little boy is almost a year old. Whoa.

He will go (crawl) into his room, even shut his door, and play (pull everything out onto the floor) by himself for 10 minutes+ at a time! I don't like it when the door's shut, but I do like that he can play independently for longer periods of time. He dumps out a bucket here or there (or both) and as long as the bathroom door and our door are shut, he's safe to cruise around. We hear his big hands slapping on the floor as he goes, and it's hilarious to watch the excitement gleam from his eyes and he moves so quickly across the floor. Especially if it's to crawl up the piano bench to reach those white keys! He still giggles hysterically over it!
