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.

On the Move

It’s been a while since our last post.  Kitty, Luca, and I are doing well.  Work has been going very well for Kitty and I.  OHSU has given Kitty the perfect balance of work and time with Luca.  For me Jive is still amazing and I’m so lucky to have found such a great company back home in Oregon. In our copious amounts of free time Kitty keeps busy sewing and making quilts for friends’ babies while I enjoy my weekly basketball games.

Luca is very active nowadays and is definitely on the move.  He hasn’t quite started full on crawling but between his flips, rolls, and flops he covers a lot of ground.  The other night he decided to go from his tummy to a sitting position.  Needless to say his technique of just throwing his body up and over didn’t work out too well for him and he went back down just as quick as he sprung up.

We’ve had several visitors lately.  Tami and Toby who are expecting a little one, Zach and Ashley who have a daughter, Edie, a little older than Luca, and Kitty’s family came up for a visit this last weekend.  It’s so awesome to be so close to family and friends even though Kitty and I both miss our friends in Hawaii and So Cal.

It was Kitty and my 2nd wedding anniversary on August 8th.  We’ve been together for 12 years now.  Kitty’s amazing tolerance for my shenanigans is matched only by her amazing abilities as a mom.  Luca and I are both very lucky to have her.
