AfterI also felt like adding this picture because, for some crazy reason, I *love* when I find him like this. His little feet are tucked under him and he's totally content to sit like this for quite awhile. It's even better when his shoes aren't on, so you can see his chubby toes and square-ish feet.

That lasted for all of about 10 seconds. Next thought was to see if he would play with a comb (the toys were in the bag).
It was almost like he was trying to hold on to the comb for dear life. Poor guy. The comb didn't last long, which was my fault. I was busy taking pictures when he stealthily put it in his mouth. Next.
Our last thought was to try to bribe him with a sucker that Ashley had (puffs were in the bag). We were willing to try anything at this point.
This also worked for approximately 10 seconds before he wanted nothing to do with it anymore. He's not used to sweet foods and he typically prefers vegetables to fruits, so I think that this was a little too much for him. Keith enjoyed it though.
We gave up trying at this point. We held him still, let him fuss, and finished the haircut.
Ashley said that he did really well compared to some of the other babies she's given haircuts to. I'm not sure if she was just being nice or if he really was quite the trooper. I feel really silly that I'd put it off for this long. Blame the crazy mom in me I guess. He is such a handsome guy now and I love the way it turned out!

We started off with the intention of taking Rosco with us, but after we caught sight of the kids playing at the end of the street, we decided against it because we didn't want him scaring any of the kids. We know he just likes to sniff, but the kids had no idea that's what he was thinking.
Luke found some toys that I'd put in his wagon and began playing with them while we were walking. He also managed to grab his long-lost sunglasses from the bottom of the wagon. We tried to put them on him, but much rather preferred to play with them.
The trip was uneventful and fun. We were only out for about 5-10 minutes before I had to leave to teach R.E. I'm excited for us to go again!

After our brief scare shortly after he was born concerning his weight gain, Luke has become quite the large, hefty fella. He tipped the scales at 21 lbs., 14 oz. at his check-up and measured 31 inches long. Due to his increasingly large size, it was time to upgrade to a big-boy car seat. Of course, safety first, so it's installed backwards until his first birthday, but he fits so much better and can actually sit up and enjoy the view as we go places.
