an update...



i am almost 28 weeks now... but here i am 
26 weeks
Luke's birthday came and went (happy birthday) and he got some wonderful presents.  Look at his surprise and confusion when we got this in the mail:
Then he realized it was from Candi

With this inside he knew he wouldn't be disappointed.
But there was a greater surprise... check out these cookies she made




Thank you Candi!! you sure are talented.. i was impressed with so much about those cookies.. the packaging, their capability to be all in one piece when they got here, how real they look and how delicious they were...


For Luke's birthday we headed to visit his brother and family in their new house.  We were lucky that his mom was visiting too. 

Trisha and Jordan's little Hudson is so cute.  And it was good for Luke to get some experience holding him, i couldn't help but think about how there will be lots more of this in just a few months.



27 weeks.  I think i may have "popped" as people say.  or at least i feel like i have. 



Luke and his mom on his birthday.. She made a delicious lasagna for dinner (Luke's favorite)

and we had his other favorite for dessert - angel food cake, whip cream and strawberries.


This past year of Luke's life has been full of lots of adventures and fun - can't wait to see what this next year will bring us..
