"No-ah!" Reprise

Here's a little video from a couple weeks ago demonstrating Luke's fondness for the bald man with the white beard in the Bible stories...

Old and New

This week was rather a whirlwind. Grandma and Grandpa Holman came to visit us from California. We had a great time with them and were very sad to see them go today.

While they were here, we pretty much completed an overhaul on our home. When we first moved in, there were two big cosmetic problems with the house- 1) the main bathroom was a bright yellow (with both blue and oatmeal colored tile with white trim- what were they thinking?), and 2) Luke's room was a pinkish-peach color (previously belonged to a seven-year-old girl). Now, after a week of painting, we have a cool greyish-blue in the bathroom that pulls together all the colors, and a great khaki color in Luke's room. Here are some pictures:



Also, Saturday was another banner day in yard sale hunting. We found a whole new living room set (couch, chair, marble top coffee table, and two end tables) for a great price after some serious haggling. The furniture is very old, but was completely re-upholstered very recently.

We will miss Grandma and Grandpa very much, but will remember their visit everyday.

Up and Down

The days have been perfect. Warm and breezy, clear skies. We have been outside every day. Here is a video of Luke going up and down the slide by himself. He is getting so big!

No-ah!!

Luke is beginning to develop some favorites. Noah, or anything related to Noah and his ark, are always a big hit with him. We have about 4 Noah's ark books now. He recognizes Noah in each of the books, even though the pictures of him are different. I used to let him read a Noah's ark book in church, but it is dangerous to do that now. The congregation hears, "No-ah!!, No-ah, there's No-ah." All very happy noises, but noisy none the less. :)

Luke also continues to like cars and balls the best. He pushes his Tonka truck around the house constantly. He throws any ball that he finds lying around. He is definitely a boy!

Luke's favorite thing to watch is a kid's music group from Australia called "The Wiggles." We download a few episodes with our Netflicks subscription. They sing and dance and have SO MUCH ENERGY! Luke taps his feet and really enjoys himself. I'll admit, I like the Wiggles too.

Oh, and a list of new words: purple(pupple), turtle (tuttle), jacket (jackee), coffee (coppy), cup (cup), elephant (eppant), truck (chuck), pants (pants), shirt (shut), etc...
