We’ve been doing well. Kitty’s family came to visit this weekend for a summer birthdays celebration. Her mom, dad, bother, sisters, aunts and grandma all stopped by. It was good to see everyone and Luca is always excited to see family. Luca has been making his way through all kinds of solid foods. We pretty much just let him try whatever we are eating. This weekend he had some pad thai and yogurt. Sweet potatoes and applesauce seem to be his favorite while, after three yuck faces, salmon had to be put on hold. To help with his consumption his two lower teeth have broken through. We didn’t really know he was teething until the first tooth came in, and while he was gnawing on my knuckle I felt the sting of his little sharp tooth digging in.
All three of us are going to be taking a trip to Southern California in October. We’re going for a wedding but are going to stay for a few extra days. While there we are hoping to visit with friends, make the necessary stop at Disneyland, and hopefully get Luca on a surfboard. Luca is doing well. As I write this he is scooting across the floor and glancing back at me with a smile to check if I’m watching. A few minutes ago, with his new found mobility, he discovered and quickly destroyed Kitty’s Mothering magazine and JCrew catalog.
It seems like whenever Luca isn’t sleeping or eating he’s giggling and smiling. He has such a calm demeanor and really just doesn’t get upset about much.
