Life with Lucas {week 10}

I can't believe this sweet boy is already in the double digits!

Here's a look at what we've been up to in this HEAT! OMG, is it hot outside....ugh.

Last Thursday, we snuck into story time. They were all filled up by the time we got to the front of the line! Luckily, we had friends inside who {illegally} let us in. Don't tell anyone!

We also had Lucas's 2 month check up. The power was out in the exam rooms, so that was definitely interesting!

The pediatrician pulled Lucas out in the hallway (where there were lights) to check out his head shape closely, since I was a little worried it was flat. Sure enough, it is mildly flat on one side. Oh Lucas, always something! The ped gave us a few neck exercises to do with Lucas, but wasn't too concerned. Apparently it is very common at this age and usually works itself out without requiring physical therapy or a fingers crossed!

We rewarded Lucas for surviving his 2 month shots with a traditional trip to the mall! 

Friday, we hit up Toys & Co for music time. We also saw the nurse who helped deliver Lucas there! She was so excited to see him again!

Of course we also had to play with the train table....and all of the other toys there. So fun. 

Pretty sure Ella wanted to take everything on this wall home with her. 

With Lucas's little head issue, I decided Friday would be a good time to get the Bumbo chair out. He really likes sitting in it and does a great job with his neck/head control! 

Saturday, we went to the pool. Lucas stayed home with Trav because it was 9 million degrees out. 

After nap, one of our friends had some gift cards to the movie theater that she wanted to share with us, so we all got to see Finding Dory again...this time Trav came, too! 

Sunday, we tried another new chair: the sit me up. They didn't have these when Ella was this age, but I scored one off a Facebook group and I LOVE this thing. 

Lucas loves it too! 

Monday we didn't do too much except play excessively with Snapchat face filters. 

Tuesday we went to Sky Zone!

Yesterday, we tried to go to story time...but again, they were full. I guess because it's so hot out, people are hitting up story time like crazy?! I've never had an issue getting in until this past week! 

Lucas was not happy about missing out on story time...

So we just played with the toys in the kids' section! 

Yesterday afternoon was this guy's first time in the Ergo

I had a different carrier with Ella, and once she got to be about Lucas's weight (12 pounds), it really started hurting my back. I don't think I am going to have that issue with the was so comfortable and I wore Lucas around for over an hour while vacuuming without a problem! 

I am continuing to rack my brain for indoor activities...if you have any new suggestions, please send them my way! Poor Ella just keeps asking to go to the playground. Bless her. 

Stay cool out there!!! 


  1. Sounds like yall are getting out and about a lot! Go Mama! PS you know I'm here on the head thing but I'm sure he'll be fine without anything!

  2. This heat is horrible! Some indoor activities I've been doing with Eliana are sensory stuff like she loves when I get some pots and bowls out and give her beans and noodles and she makes a huge mess but it's worth it:) also, shaving cream on the table. Fun for them!

  3. Lucas is so cute sitting up in his Bumbo - what a big boy!
