Feliz Navidad!

We took a wonderful holiday trip with Grandma and Grandpa Haines and Uncle Patrick, Aunt Rebecca and cousins Timo and Sebastian to the Mayan Riveria in Mexico. As the pictures below show, Lucas had so much fun to escaping the New York cold and enjoy the Mexican sun and getting (and giving) lots of love to his family!!!

Lucas the Lion Says: Happy Halloween!

Lucas hit the Halloween party at the GOOG and was roaming the halls roaring loudly. Well, actually it sounded more like ba ba ba ba than a roar.

Here's our little lion on the prowl.

Grandma and Grandpa Haines joined for the fun!

Lucas in the bath...with pink bunnies

Granny Lucky gave us this crazy bath mitt a while back. Tonight we put it into action for the first time and, boy, was it a hit!

Lucas at the Beach

Lucas survived Hurricane Earl and enjoyed a great Labor Day weekend as the mascot of "Team B" at 44 Miankoma. He loved walking in the sand, watching the waves, and somehow beat everyone at "Aw Heck" (in addition to eating half the cards.)

Lucas Hits Ledyard

Lucas had a great trip to Ledyard Farms, the home of his great-great grandfather in Ledyard,NY in the Finger Lakes. Lucas enjoyed a great family reunion with his cousins, Timo and Sebastian, Uncle Patrick and Aunt Rebecca and Grandma and Grandpa Haines. He really took well to farm life enjoying the chickens, horse and highland cattle and the Wheat Harvest Festival. Cant wait to visit again next year!

Did you ever wonder what your child would like if he/she was born in a different era? We did and decide to put together some "yearbook" pictures of Lucas from 1960 - 1996. Wonder what his high school year book will look like in 2027?

Lucas (age 6 months) Weighs In

Our little man is 6 months old! And we celebrated with rice cereal (see below) and a trip to the pediatrician for a weigh in among other things. Lucas loved the scale and thought it was a new bouncy seat. (Little did he know that after the weighing came shots!) Oh, and in case your curious, Lucas is tipping the scales at almost 19 pounds.

Welcome to Solid Food Lucas

I am all geared up with my new bib from Uncle Gert and ready to try some solid food after 6 months of milk...

....Ok here comes the spoon...

....Rice cereal doesn't look great but I am going to just try and slurp it down....

....This is horrendous. Mommy, Daddy, Grandma, Chani - why are you doing this to me???

Serious to Smiling

We are constantly amazed by Lucas's rapid mood changes. It just takes one jangle of a toy or tickle of the belly to transform him from a deeply contemplative mood to a giggling goofball.

First Swim

Swimming?!? Huh? I haven't done that since the good old days in the womb.

Okay--I'm ready. Bring it on.

Ummm...this ain't my normal "tummy time" routine.

Okay, I could get used to this.
