Swimming in October and Staples in the Head

Yes, Lucas and some of his little friends went swimming in October. Southern California hasn’t quite cooled down, so we enjoyed some beautiful weather in our pool.

Fearless Lucas loves to jump from the cliff. He always asks of Finn can do it with him. Oh lord!


He got Crobsy to come up with them and Crobsy was hilarious making faces and sounds and screaming. What a silly guy.


Lucas is getting so big. At least in this picture he does. He looks big some days, and like a little baby other days.


We also fed some ducks and Lucas loved it. It was one of those ‘what do we do today’ days again. I think Lucas enjoys it. It’s pretty spontaneous so we may be going home, then I see some kids feeding ducks and instead drive over to a pond. Look at that follow through though. He may grow up to play basketball. He has the height for it.


He went to miss Lola’s birthday party too! Miss Lola turned 2 years old and she had a big bounce house party. Lucas watches that kids TV show with the little girl named Lola and the way he says it just cracks me up. He says “Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhlah” in a raspy, tongue-rolling voice.
He said “Happy Bir’dee Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuhlah” It was hilarious and Lola looked terrified.

The little boy bending over is Crobsy and Lucas was by his side all day. He definitely got a plateful of Crobsy this week.


There was a decent amount of blood here yesterday too. At preschool Lucas fell of the slide and smashed his head in the ground. It wasn’t pavement thank god, but it was a softer ground. (I have no idea what it is called) He cut open his head and he kept seizing and blacking out. After some staples in the back of his head and an overnight stay because he wasn’t breathing well, we were released. Lucas asked if he could keep his oxygen mask that he had to wear and was sadly disappointed when Dr. Morgan said no. He wanted to include it in his halloween costume. Which is a puppy. Sure Lucas…

Your welcome, too.

Lucas’ head was was pretty wide open and I did not document it. Probably because I almost puked, and probably because I never got to see it fully because Lucas went in an ambulance to the hospital where I met him. So for those of you who get queasy.. your welcome.
