To follow up on Luke's furniture chewing habit, please see below. Obviously he's still at it...
I don't care what chris says, i love his little slippers :)
absolutely loves this remote (and to chew on it). if you take it away or try to give him a different one he knows!!!
on a more positive note, Luke's starting to free stand, sometimes 30 seconds or a minute at a time. pretty fun to see him gaining confidence in himself. his balance is quite good actually.
and one more quick nibble.

Luke's 4th bottom tooth popped through this week (8 teeth now) so I'm sure that contributes to all the chewing. We don't mind a few paint chips missing here and there. It's all worth it for this cute, happy boy.

The Magic Licorice

Amanda came to visit us for a few days (which I will post about soon, was really fun) so I had to drop her off at the airport two nights ago. I left Luke at home with Dad, not even thinking twice about it. Well, I called Chris on my way home from dropping Mandy off and lets just say Luke was not a happy camper. He screamed for 30 min straight, bloody murder. Poor Chris, didn't know what to do. Poor Luke, got another tooth, has been sick, and didn't know what to do with himself apparently (b/c this is not normal behavior). After all that crying when Chris had him mostly settled down, he found the LAST piece of licorice in the house and gave it to Luke. Licorice is like his favorite thing apparently. Dad propped 3 pillows for him, sat him down, and Luke started laughing and jabbering away, chewing on his licorice. SO FUNNY! Chris is like, why didn't I think of that earlier?! Lesson learned, a piece of licorice goes a long way.

Baby Cougars

Just catching up with all these blog posts. Been a busy month. We went to the Bewsey's this past Saturday to watch the BYU game. The three kids got all suited up in their BYU attire to watch the game. Or, to distract everyone from watching the game! Pretty darn cute, I must say. I have a feeling these three are going to be great pals.
 Luke, Quinn and Max
Max, always eyeing everyone's toys. Haha.


We spent a lovely evening last week with the Coombs family at Cornbelly's (Thanksgiving Point) - corn maze, pumpkin patch, rides, games, kettle for all. We learned that Scott is a true cowboy and can lasso like none other,  Cassie is the quickest at duck races ;), Chris is the one you want to help you out of the corn maze, and Amy has a great shot with the paint ball gun! Really fun night - the kids loved it, and so did we!
