The Cutest Luca EVER!!!

Nick and I got Luca a jumparoo a few months ago and he is finally starting to be able to use it.  He is still super short but Nick put a pillow under his feet so he can jump and move around, now he really loves playing in his jumparooo.  We place him in front of the fish tank and he is even more entertained.  He just loves the simple things in life.

This was taken at Shawn & Linda's a few days ago.  Addison dressed him up in the hat and but the bracelet on him.  Addison sure loves her little cousin.

4 months and counting

     We have been a super busy family as of late.  Luca hit the big 4 months on Saturday and I think he gained a pound over night.  He is really chunking up and we love it.  He is getting fat and happy.  One sad thing is that Luca is starting to get his teeth already and this is making him grumpy but he is still a really good baby overall.
     Nick started building a room in the basement almost 2 years ago when my sister moved in with us; the room is framed and wired with electricity but it doesn't have any walls.  Nick finally realized that I am capable of helping him hang drywall even though I am an out of shape weakling.  We hang about half of the ceiling and one complete wall.  We are going to try to finish the dry walling this Saturday so that I can work on taping and mudding after I get home from work during the week while Luca is sleeping. We were going to put Luca's playroom down there but Nick doesn't like the idea of him maneuvering our steep stairs so we are probably going to be moving his study down there.  The room is a lot bigger than what we have upstairs so we are going to be able to get the extra bookcases we need so I can finally get that room organized.
     We took a drive a couple of weeks ago up skyline drive in Bountiful trying to reach the ponds so we could have a picnic and go exploring but the road is still closed from the slides that happened earlier this year.  I did manage to get a couple of pretty pictures but none of Luca (he was asleep for most of the drive).  Well I guess that is enough for now.

10 pounds of cuteness

Well, Luca has finally hit the big one-oh in weight.  I know he still looks small but he has gotten huge from where he first started.  He is "talking" a lot more now and he is starting to smile a lot of the time.  We are just so happy and he is such a cute little guy.

Walking the Weber river trail

We decided to get out and go somewhere different and I remembered Alica talking about this great trail that they walked along the Weber river.  Nick knew where the trail was at because this is the same place he and Jake went tubing and had a great adventure loosing most of what they had with them.  But I digress.  We weren't able to walk too far because Luca got upset with everything.  We had him in the stroller, Nick carried him, I carried him, but nothing could sooth the crying baby so we headed back to the car.  We did get a 2.25 mile walk and some alright pictures. (I didn't bring our good camera, so the pictures didn't turn out too great)
There is a quail in the trees

Nick & Luca in front of the Weber river, the water was originally a lot higher this year but it has really subsided

This is where Luca decided that he had enough of the great outdoors and wanted to go home

A neat picture of the trail and some of the trees & grasses
