H a L L o W e e N 2009

Luke turned 10 months on Halloween! I was going to dress him as Handy Manny, but Dave and some friends thought Luke would look really cute as a Garden Gnome. So here he is, our little garden gnome! My mom made his costume. He was really good with wearing the hat and beard all night at our Trunk or Treat! He was so interested in all the people that he forgot all about his hat! We had a great night, hot dogs, cotton candy, and more candy!!

I let Luke have half a piece of an orange tootsie roll, he got so hyper! He was giggling and walking and crawling everywhere. He did not go to bed that night until 11 pm. No more candy until he is a lot older!! lol!

For work on Thursday Oct. 29, we had to dress up for Halloween. All the costumes had to be biker themed, so here we are! We decided to wear them to the Trunk or Teat on Halloween! No one recognized Dave until they heard his voice. He grew his goatee out for 4 weeks. The next morning he shaved it all off.

Luke and Conor's Playdate

Today Luke had a play date with his friend Conor. Conor is 11 days older than Luke. They had so much fun!! They shared snacks, wrestled over toys, and had fun climbing on the furniture. Luke was so tired when we left, he took a 2 hour nap. Conor's mom is Chrissy, she went to high school with my sister and I went to high school with her brother. We had so much fun today, Thank you Chrissy and Conor!!

Luke at 9 months

Our little boy is growing so fast. I can not believe he is 9 months. He makes each and every day so much brighter. I love every moment that I get to be with him. I am only working 2 days a week (mon and wed) doing hygiene, which has been so nice!!

-Luke is 27 inches tall and 17.7 lbs.

- Luke is walking everywhere so long as he can have at least one hand on something, if he does not have something to hold onto he plops down and crawls. He has been doing this for the past 2 1/2 months.

- He has 3 teeth, his 2 lower centrals and his upper left lateral, he is our little jack-o-lantern, so cute!

- He knows how to say mama and dada clear. He talks all the time with his baby talk, he loves to sing in Primary with the children and in Sacrament, the only bad thing is that he is often the loudest, at first I thought is was so funny, but now I have to slip out to the hallway because he distracts all the kids. I was released as Primary Secretary 2 months ago and now teach the CTR 6 class. All the kids love Luke and fight over who gets to sit by him.

- He is a good eater, he loves his sweet potatoes and all fruits, he eats salad like a champ, he loves to eat whatever his mommy and daddy are eating. Cheerioes have been a fun snack he is so cute picking them up with his fingers.

-I put baby signing time and baby einstein on for Luke, but he wants nothing to do with them. He does not like to watch tv. He would much rather be exploring or figuring out how things work. He likes the music and will start dancing and shaking his tush but that is it.

Having fun this Summer!!

Luke is now 6 months old. He is so fun!! I can not get enough of his big smiles and cute laughter. He is almost crawling, he can do the army crawl very well. He loves to walk holding your hands. He loves people and especially other children.

He is sporting his first pair of "Chucks" thanks to cousin Gage, We love them!! We get so many compliments.

Luke loves to go swimming he gets so mad when you take him out of the water.

I thought he just looked so cute in this picture, he had a very full diaper. We were over at our friends house (the Coronado's) for the 4th of July. We had a great time, we barbecued and then did some fire works. Luke did not like the loud whistling fountains, but he did like the lights.

We had our Jolley Family Reunion June 21st-24th up at a huge cabin in Paragonah Utah. We had so much fun! We brought 4-wheelers, we sot skeet with 12 and 20 guage sot guns, horseshoes, water balloon launcher and great food! There were a total of 22 of us. Luke was so happy to see grandma and grandpa Jolley, this was the fist time since the day he was born. We miss seeing them! Hopefully one day soon they will be able to move closer.
After we got back from the reunion I left the next day to fly up to Washington to see my Grandma, aunts, uncles, and cousins. I miss not having my grandma closer, but thanks to Allegiant airlines we found a great deal. I was able to have some delicious Washington cherries. I brought some home for Dave. We had a great time! I am so glad we were able yo visit you Melanie, thanks for the cherries! So now we are back in Vegas sweating like crazy with this horrible 106+ temp.

A Little Summer Fun

We took a little overnight trip to California and while we were there we wanted to visit the ocean. The weather was beautiful and the temperature was perfect. Luke loved the water even though it was freezing. I wish I could live on the beach. I would love to be able to go walking or jogging every morning on the beach. I just wish it wasn't so expensive to live in Cali.
This is what happens when you go to take a shower and leave dad in charge of watching the baby. We were at the hotel, Dave saw Luke with the bag of cheetos and realized he like the sound of the crinkle, he did not think it would go any further than Luke playing with the top of the bag.

After a few minutes, Dave looked back to see what Luke was doing and this is what he found! Luke was having a hay day and had crumbs all over his face and the bed, but what was worse was that the cheetos are the new ones with jalopeno, WHOOPS! He still loved them, no crying!

I felt so bad for the maid who had to find this lovely mess on the bed!

Family portrait

Luke loves bath time and for me it is easier to do it in the Kitchen sink, he just fits so well and it does not kill my back.

I have not posted Luke's 5 month photo because the poor guy has really bad eczema and he has very dry skin all over his body, so I was trying to wait until his skin looks a little better.

Luke is 4 months!

Luke is now four months and so dang cute!! He is now rolling completely over both ways and even does double rolls. He loves to sit up and stand up. He is giggling all the time and such a sweet baby. He loves to snuggle and give open mouth kisses. He loves all of his cousins and loves their attention. He no longer looks like a baby he looks like a little boy. We love our little man so much, I just can not get enough of him.

Luke's hair is really long and will not stay down or do anything but stand up, so today he had his first haircut by his aunt Ana (my sister). He did so good, he was talking the entire time and smiling. We took before, during, and after pictures.


Luke has his foe hawk again. Doesn't he look so handsome?

Luk's first Easter

I made Luke his first Easter basket but the treats were more for mom and dad. His shorts and flip flops are too cute. He has just started to giggle and is starting to roll over from his back to his side. He is sucking on everything his hands, blankets, toys, and drooling like crazy.

Luke is 3 months old! Time is flying!

We just went to Luke's 3 month well visit with Dr. Conti. Luke weighs 13 lbs 8 oz and is 24 inches long. He is so cute, he is now smiling all the time. He giggles and coo's. He is just too much fun. I hate leaving him for work, but I cherish every moment that I have with him. He is now able to sit up in his bumbo. He still has all of his hair, no bald spot yet. He is constantly moving his head back and forth and rubbing, but his hair has stayed. It is now to long to stay up in a foe hawk, he is going to need his first haircut real soon.

Luke was holding his dad's ears, it was so funny, but every time I took a picture he would move his hands.

Luke on St. Patrick's Day, he had to wear some green!!

Had to take more pics in the bumbo, his faces are too funny! Check out his cowboy boot socks, a friend from church gave them to him at one of his baby showers, we LOVE them, they match all of his outfits!!

Luke at 2 months!

Luke is now 10 weeks so I am late with the post. The bottom picture was just before his baby blessing at church on march 1st, we waited so that some friends of our could bless their baby on the same day in our ward, they are from Arizona but their family is here. He did really good, no crying. I need to get some more professional pics done or get a better camera. He has started to sleep through the nights so that has been a blessing, but at night he is fussy (colichy) so I feel so bad for him. We are having so much fun with our little boy. I enjoy every second that I have with him, especially since I have had to go back to work. Luckily I have a great sister-in-law who watches him, so that makes me feel better. I know he is safe and loved. Her kids love to hold and feed him in the morning before school.

Luke at ONE month

Luke now weighs 11 lbs and is 22 inches long. Everyone can not believe the amount of hair he has. I try to give him a foe hawk, he is already going to need his first hair cut and he is only 8 weeks. Luke has been so much fun, I go back to work next Monday and am so sad to leave my son. All I can hope is that he will be sleeping through the night very soon or he will have one grouchy mom.
