bathtub! I'm always missing food pieces when I attemt to clean him
with a washcloth, I guess I'd better always remember to check behind
AND in his ears! Yes that's right, oatmeal in the ear!

After checking on him the first night, we decided to put his bed along the wall the long way, so he would only have a little space where he could fall out... which he did, so now we put the pillow at the foot of the bed, and he has done much better!
Things worked out even if we weren't going to buy a bed. It was cheaper than putting him in a twin bed...we would have to buy a twin mattress, twin bed frame, twin bedding....etc... And it's just too cute! So now our plan is (which always seem to change when we make them!) is to just wait until Cassie needs to be in a twin bed (maybe 3 years?) and just but them at the same time, maybe bunk beds that we can separate if we need to.
We love how every night he has random things in bed, this night it was a book, a pound puppy (from when I was a kid! Do they even still make those?) an of course he ALWAYS has his doggie!

Something else that Luke did that made us laugh...
His bed time is still 6pm. He doesn't always go to sleep right away... he will climb out and play with his toys, read his books, or whatever. We don't mind, he's happy and when he does get tired he gets in bed and goes to sleep. A few nights ago we could hear him playing with his toys, more specifically his Legos. Things were quiet in his room, and then a couple of hours later we heard him start to cry so we went in to check on him, Michael went in and then called me in. Luke had all of his Legos in bed with him and we figured that maybe he rolled onto them and that's what woke him up. As we were about to put them away we noticed that after he dumped the Legos into his bed, he put the Lego container back where he got it from with the lid on and everything! We had a good laugh!
And last night was the first night since moving him to the room he's in that he fell asleep out of his bed...

And because I never posted an official 2 month picture of Cassie, here it is! I can't believe how fast these past 2 (2 1/2 now!) months have gone! She does really good during the day, but at night she usually has a few hours where she gets really colicky, so we usually never call anyone, or answer phones, not that we are avoiding anyone... we just won't be able to here them! Hopefully soon she will grow out of the colic, because I need more sleep! The other day in my sleep I told Michael that my throat felt like a pterodactyl.... I have no memory of this!

and have never been... what a fun store! Luke loved the fish, and all
the other animals, but he thought these in the picture were Ender! It
was cute as we rounded the corner to hear him saying 'woof! woof!'.

But while I'm here I might as well give a quick update....
Hmmm, lets see, we had to have Terminix come out and treat our house for carpenter ants. We were glad that they weren't termites, but if they had been at least we had the termite protection. We are also glad that we have a contract with Terminix, because we have had them out (at no extra cost, yay!) probably 4-5 other times besides the quarterly scheduled visits they provide, so it has been well worth it!
Ender's family reunion is coming up in September, sadly we will be missing it again. We have never been able to go, but hope to go maybe next year, even if we do say that every year, I think we mean it this time!
I can't believe Luke will be two at the end of October... where has the time gone.
We are excited to be here for Christmas this year, but sad that we might not get to see a bunch of family. We will be buying a tree soon after they get to the stores. And we just might have to set it up and enjoy it that much longer! We have gone 7 out of the 9 Christmas holidays without a tree... but wherever we were there was a tree for us to enjoy, it just wasn't ours. And we can't believe that we have two kids for Christmas this year! It will be exciting to see Luke really getting into it this year since he was too young the past two years, and Cassie will be about 6 1/2 months old!
Well, be sure and check back often to see what's new!

lbs 11 oz and is 23" long.... but the nurse just takes a pen and
marked the paper and I think the pen was at an angle because when I
measured the other day I measured 21" long. So I guess since her
medical record is the official one we will have to go with that... who
knows, maybe at her next appointment she will have shrunk!
Luke at his 2 month was 13 lbs 3 oz and 24" long. So either way they
are pretty close in growing the same!
Cassie's next appointment will be her 4 month in October and Luke's 2
year is in October so I got them on the same day! Shots for all....
that should be fun!

into a corner reading by himself. I love that he does this, and
sometimes he will read book, after book, after book, and keep himself
busy for 10 to 20 minutes!
