Lucas Weekly : Week 9 {4/18/11-4/24/11}

I am constantly amazed at how fast kids grow.  Having a child of my own and seeing that firsthand makes me appreciate the value of photographs so much more.  If I didn't see the importance of my job before Luc was born, I certainly do now.  Being able to go through pictures of Lucas and see those changes is something I cherish with all of my heart.  And even though it's a relief to not take a picture of Lucas every day (what the heck was I thinking???), there's a small part of me that feels as though I'm missing out.  That I might be robbing the future me of remembering how Lucas was at every point of his life.  Obviously, this is just me being crazy, and I think it's now apparent to everyone that I suffer from "the grass is always greener" syndrome.  This is where Seth would call me Eeyore and encourage me to suck it up.  Well, fine.  I will cheer myself up by posting some INSANELY cute pictures of Lucas beginning to embark upon a new milestone! :)

Check out who can stand up all by himself!!  Don't you just love that tongue??

Won't be long until my little Snoopy is walking!  Guess it might be time to actually baby-proof things, huh?

Luc also had a taste of Daddy's fruit smoothie and LOVED it!  It was so funny to watch him drink it through a straw!

He was very excited.

 Then, we spent Easter out in Iowa with his cousins, Ellie and Linkan.  Today (4/29) is Ellie's 3rd Birthday!!

I love this one. :)
