Anyway, about a month ago, we did some "18 month" pictures with a friend, though he wasn't really quite 17 months yet. I was worried with all my pregnancy drama that we might not get them done in all the madness so we did a few and a few maternity/family pictures with my friend Jen who is starting a photography business.
And then last week we went and got pumpkins at a pumpkin patch where you pick them yourself. We went on a hayless "hay ride" that Luke really liked, and picked our pumpkins. Luke struggled to walk through the pumpkin patch around all of the vines and fell down over and over again and then decided to sit down and play in the dirt.
And then, last but not least, my baby loss mom friend Kim and I went to lunch and then took our boys to a different pumpkin patch last week , mostly to play in the forts and see the animals and stuff. Kim brought her big girl camera and took a ton of great pictures of Luke and her son Brennan.(Considering that I have gone through 3 laptops in less than a year and my current laptop is also broken--I spilled cereal on my keyboard and it shorted out so I'm used a desktop keyboard plugged into the laptop usb because I don't want to trade it in for a nonbroken one just yet...we've only had it a couple months. Thank you Best Buy accident protection plans. Anyway, there will be no big girl camera for me anytime soon.) Luke ADORES Kim's little boy Brennan and most of his smiles are because Brennan was talking to him or doing something silly.
|Ducks! Actually, hens with one duck mixed in. Ducks are Luke's favorite second only to dogs these days and lots of birds fall into the "duck" category.|
|We made them hug. Luke is just a tiny bit shorter. :)|
|This was HILARIOUS when Brennan did it. Not funny at all when we did it.|
*Sigh* But yeah, he's totally a laughing, climbing, running, tantrum throwing, opinionated, stomping his feet and throwing his body on the ground
