Weekend reading: July 30, 2016


From Instagram: Happy snuggles.

This week, at just shy of 9 months old, Lucas finally figured out how to “crawl” forward. Technically it’s more of a butt scoot with his leg tucked up under him, but either way, he’s moving! We’re hoping his newfound freedom will help him to be a little less clingy, but it’s also just really fun to watch him go.

The past month or so has also taken his relationship with Jackson to a new level. They’re almost the same size despite the two-year age difference, and it’s adorable to see them interacting and to see how much they love each other. Jackson probably says a dozen times a day, “Aww! He’s so cute!” and Lucas’ eyes light up every time he sees his brother. I’m so glad that God saw fit to bless us with a second baby boy even though we were D-O-N-E after the first!
