Superhero obsession has officially overtaken our house...

Dancing By The Fountains

We took a long morning walk around the Plaza recently and the kids were thrilled to walk by the waterfall at the Intercontinental.

Luke's First Month

ISome pics of Luke finishing his first month in the world.


First bath. Not super thrilled.

Big eyes.

Teeny in his car seat.

Hands perfectly under his head napping.

Big brother holding him.

As he got older, a frequent pose. Luke crying, being bounced on the ball.

Teeny Feet and First Smile on Camera

Snapped these the other day. The first to make sure I remember how tiny Luke's feet are. The second was the first smile I got on camera of Luke, who is by far the flirtiest one of my children. He grins and grins when he is feeling well!

Tommy honestly believes sunglasses should be worn upside down and does that at all times.

Uncle John and Amy Come To Town

We had a great time when Uncle John Postlewait and his girlfriend Amy came to visit. We capped off their stay with a trip to Loose Park with their dog Bailey.

The kids love when Uncle John comes to town. Lots of wrestling, playing, waking him up by jumping on his bed, playing in the yard. Amy and Bailey did a great job keeping up and the kids were super sad when they left.

Root, Root, Root for the Royals

We took the crew out to the K for a Royals game. It was a nutty idea to take 3 kids including a 2 week old baby out there, but we made it work. Ellie and Tommy had a blast.

We lost Tommy in the 7th inning, but he gave it a good effort.

Luke Meets His Great Grandfather

These two met and were buddies from the start

Fourth of July Baby

A little red, white and blue buddy.

Special Time With Ellie

About a week after Luke was born, Tommy happened to be in school, so Ellie, Luke and I had a morning coffee and stroll on the Plaza. She was so grown up, just happy to be a big sister.

Sweet smile.
This was my favorite. A large clock was tolling the hour with chimes, which she loved. Out of nowhere, she just sat down and watched.

A Pretty Happy Birthday

Here is a pic of Luke I took that is one of my favorites. You can see his long hands and big eyes.

I took this the morning of my 35th birthday. John and Amber graciously took Tommy and Ellie for the night and Mikey, Luke and I enjoyed an unseasonably cool morning outside, with coffee, cinnamon rolls...and silence.

I also got my nails done with this gal.

We had family over that night and took a picture of all the cousins. Cute crew.

All in all, a pretty great birthday!
