I thought it was important for me to tell everyone who views this blog that I am only posting this blog to brag about my son, wife and dog. I don't want any comments about how one sided I am. Furthermore, I will not be following anyone, so you don't have to follow me. This blog is basically for my mom. Thank you. Oh yah, 90 percent of what I say on this blog is probably not true. Use your common sense. Do you really think my kid can walk at one day old?

Happy Easter

This is the easter photo my mom took of Lucas. She claims that the photos aren't good, its the subjects she is shooting. In this case that is true, but really she takes some incredible photos. Thanks mom. Happy Easter to everyone.

Red Rover Red Rover, Lucas Roll Over

So Mr. Lucas rolled over Saturday night while his mom was at work. I was taken by surprise as I layed on the floor with him. He wasn't doing much and I wasn't trying to get him to roll over, but he did. It took me a moment to realize what he had done and then I was excited and tried to get him to do it again, but he didn't.
He and I talked about whether we should tell his mom or if she would be sad that she missed it. We didn't tell her and we were wrong. I told her on Monday after I saw how proud of him she was after he was able to reach and grab a dangling tow in his car seat. She wasn't too happy that I waited. I feel that I stole a memory from her when I was trying to create one by having her be the first to see him roll over. Sorry Daunee'.

Today Lucas was introduced to cereal. I have some good photos of this, but not on the computer yet. He didn't hate the cereal but it took him a while to swallow any. His mom loves to feed him. She adores his messy face and his expressions with each bite. I don't like to feed him, cuz I can never get any into his mouth.

No place like HOME!

Lucas, Daunee and I just got back from visiting the wonderful town of Crawford. We went home for the kids's spring break. We had a good time. We got to watch Austin wrestle on Saturday. He does a good job and he is definitely a defensive wrestler. He won all his matches, taking home the gold.
We had a birthday dinner for grammy D and I just now realized that we didn't give her the card that Lucas picked out. I will eventually get it in the mail. We ate at Brandi's and she did a good job making enchilladas and beans and rice. It was really good. We got to spend a couple of days with Jaxon and Cash. They are two wonderful kids and Brandi does a good job. You are a good mom Brandi.
Saturday night we went bowling and Jeremy won a game and Daunee' won a game. I must have had a bad ball or something. We had a lot of fun and I think the kids did too.
Lucas enjoyed seeing his grammy D. It took him a minute to remember who she was, but he soon warmed up to her. He turned 4 months old so she took some photos of him as always. I don't have those to post, so maybe later.
Thanks for all the fun everyone. See you later.

Not one, but two

So my mom doesn't get to be around Lucas as much as she wants and it is always good when she can have memorable moments with him. While we were in Crawford, Lucas discovered his hands.
It was Saturday morning and he was sitting with gammy D when she pointed out that he found his hands and asked me if had done that before...which he hadn't.
It was pretty obvious that he discovered them because he would move one slowly and watch it, and then move the other slowly and watch it. He would hold them out and stare at his hand as he moved it to his mouth.
He likes to watch his dads hands as I am trying to teach hime to open and close his fists. He just smiles at me.

Bla, Bla, Bla

I found my voice today. Lucas finally started to recognize his voice and he decided to share it with his mom and dad...a lot. He coos all day, sitting in his bouncy, riding in his car seat, getting changed or taking a bath. He even coos the second he wakes up. It eventually changed to a grunt and then a uh uh uh uh and so on. He is quite funny.

Cough, sneeze, poop

Poor little Lucas had his first sickness, sometime a couple of weeks ago, wait I remember, it was around March 3rd. I was always concerned about outsiders getting my son sick and low and behold, I was the one to get him sick. I eventually wore a mask, but it was too late. He already had a cough and stuffy nose and watery eyes. He even had a temp one night, but nothing too serious. Daunee' was at work, but her mom was visitng and she helped me out a lot with him, basically taking him while I worked and Daunee slept and while I slept and Daunee worked.
I felt really bad for getting my little boy sick. He would just moan in pain and he didn't eat a ton, but enough to poop and stay hydrated.
I am pretty lucky to have a wife as a nurse. She monitored him and checked his lungs and what not. He eventually got better.....ten days later.
