Wow, the first couple weeks back at school have kept us all real busy.  It's hard to adjust to being back aftern nearly a month off.  Luke has been busy too.  He is like a little tornado, all over the place.  He is ten months old today.  Between him and my A&P reading and Mark's architecture studio work, we have had little time to do anything.  Hopefully I can post more frequently after we get back into the swing of things. 

Here is my little snuggle bug, doing his favorite thing.

It's been a little while since I last posted, mostly because we have been out of town on vacation for a few weeks.  Its funny how vacations wear you out more than just everyday life.  After getting home, unpacking, buying groceries, and just getting settled in I am exhausted.  I think Mark is too.  Luke just seems to be a bit confused.  He was never really on much of a schedule, but what little bit of a routine he had has been completely upended.  I know he loved visiting his grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins.  He wishes he could have seen all of his family members, but it didn't work out this time.  Hopefully he can see them all soon.  As much fun as we had in Missoula, it is really nice to be home.  We actually miss Bozeman quite a bit when we leave for a while.  Now we are gearing up to start the new semester next week.  It's going to be a tough one for me (16 credits, and I am taking anatomy and physiology), and a slightly easier one for Mark (he only has 14 credits).

 I am including this particular picture because it is a rare sight.  Ryan is not the biggest fan of babies, and Luke kind of prefers his mom and dad most of the time.  They are so cute together!

Well, looks like I picked something up at school.  I should have expected it since I haven't been sick all semester long, but the timing could be better (finals are next week).  Just hoping now I don't pass this on to little Luke.  Sore throats are no fun!  He has been very happy and getting into all sorts of trouble.  Paper towels are fun!

Happy boy

Luke's been kind of grumpy today- I don't think he feels very good.  I got a good smile out of him though, which is usually hard to do for pictures.  He is using the furniture to walk all over the living room now.

Luke's new favorite thing

It started last weekend.  Yep, Luke loves to pull himself up on the furniture.  The table in the living room is the best.  He's kinda grumpy in these pictures (he thinks its bedtime or something crazy like that!).

Just getting started

Well, I decided that since we are a few hours away from everyone, it might be nice to start a blog to let everyone see pictures of Luke and get updates on what's going on with him and us.  I will try to keep up with posts, but school and Luke keep me pretty busy.  Here is a picture of him doing one of his favorite things.
