I cannot believe another month has gone by! It amazes me every day how much he changes. I never expected it to go this fast 🙂
Louie has had a very active 2nd month! Lots of traveling, meeting new people, being on the river, at the pool, the cabin, he is such a good baby we have been going non stop!
The weekend after the 4th of July we were able to celebrate Great Grandpa Jaeb’s 80th birthday! It was so fun to see my Grandpa hold Louie, his first Great Grandchild! He hasn’t lost his touch, that is for sure!
Louie is lucky to have 3 beautiful older cousins to play with already! They have been so good to him, love helping us hold him and even help him keep his passy in!
For Auntie DD’s (my sis-in-law Diane’s) 30th birthday we went to LaCrosse and spent the day on the river boating around. Louie did so good being on the river for 7 hours. It’s a little tricky at times making sure he is shaded at all times but with his hat, blanket, and an umbrella we did pretty good! Louie’s cousin Kaylee was good about sharing Grandma and helping to play with Louie.
Every week Louie’s Papa helps take care of him so I can work. Sometimes all by himself because Grandma Kay is working! I think Louie is going to grow up watching old western movies and lots of sports!
Louie is so good when taking baths! He now smiles and coo’s, as long as he is covered and warm 🙂
One of Charlie’s closest friends, Matt Hickey, came to town last week. He is currently serving for our country in Afghanistan and was home on a 10 day break. Matt took time during his short visit to come and visit the little man, it definitely made our week! He brought Louie the cutest REI fleece jacket and onesie, definitely want to use it when we make our trip to Alaska to visit him when he is back home!
People often ask us where we got the name Louie. Well, there is this little boy who Charlie and I have known for a long time that we have always loved… the perfect combination of a polite little man, and all boy racing dirt bikes since he was a really little boy. His name is Louie, and we have always said we were going to name our first born son Louie because we liked his name and him so much! It also helps that one of Charlie’s best friends nickname is Llewie, so it was an easy choice for us! We got to celebrate Louie’s 8th birthday with him, and watch him and my brother Nicholas race around on dirt bikes. It was a great night!
And here are a few more pics from the past month!
