Houston is finally cool enough to be in sweaters and we are pretty happy about it.
Don't get me started on my obsession of a newborn in a sweater.
Luke, you are killin me!

Ry got his very first REAL set of golf clubs!
They are so tiny!!
He is in heaven trying them out and still getting used to the weight of them!
( He is used to his plastic clubs that we have made him hit since he could walk HA )
Watching him carry his little golf bag around is the cutest thing!

Although the fact that he can hit the golf ball with better form than I do at 3 years old is a little depressing! HA
My husband is in heaven with his little golf buddy.

And to throw in a photo of Luke in the bath this morning.
Because I could squeeze those little toes and cheeks of his all day!
Also, he got his 2 month shots on Monday ( insert mommy tears! ) even though he's not 2 months until the end of November. We are headed out on a plane this weekend ( AHHH! ) and I wanted to make sure he was vaccinated before flying! Anyways, point being, he was 10 pounds 13 oz at his appointment! Packin on the milk child!

In the words of Ryan… "Oh no! Baby Luke you stink AGAIN!"

"Mommy I love my baby Luke so much"

"Mommy, baby Luke sleeps all day, why is he still yawning?"

We went with our good friends to a pottery place and Ryan chose a car to paint.
Not sure if painting is our strong suit over here HA but he made one cool looking tie-dye car.

Daddy comes home and saves the day. #always

Tummy time. He hates it so much and we can't help but just laugh at how frustrated he gets HA
Also, side note that Luke slept 5 hours and 45 minutes straight the other night and it was glorious!

"It's the circle of LIFE" ( Please sing the song in your head when you look at this picture )
( one of my favorite movies of all time )

We took Ry to feed the ducks over the weekend and he was lovin life.
On the way to the lake we stopped at the grocery store and bought him a whole loaf of bread to make for a long time of entertainment.
Aaron and I are pretty sure by the end of it Ry ate more bread than the ducks did HA 

ANNNDD My little sidekick lately.
Ryan goes to preschool twice a week and although I miss my 3 year old buddy, I love having one on one time with my little Luke.

We were walking the mall this weekend as a family and while trying to squeeze our double BOB stroller through doors and around crowds of people ( That thing is a beast I tell you! So massive! )
Aaron and I just looked at each other and laughed… This is totally our new normal and we are pretty happy about it.
