The last 11 months!

I don't want to let a year pass before I update our blog so if it means staying up into the wee hours of the morning I will. For those of you not in the FB world (are there any out there?), I will tell you that Baby #2 was born October 22 and we named him Luke Travis. He will be 6 months before the week ends which seems totally crazy to me. Those of you with multiple children should agree with me when I say that time seems to go by so much faster when you are busy with the other(s). Our little Lukey (as Carson calls him) is so happy and easy going which is such a blessing when you have a demanding 2 year old.
For Christmas last year we went to see Grandma and Grandpa Routsong in St. George. For those of you who don't know my very particular little boy and how he DOES NOT like new things, let me tell you, getting him to sleep somewhere other than his own bed is always a challenge. I remember him crying that first night as I put him into the pack-n-play downstairs in the piano room and he kept saying "airplane, airplane". The only thing I could think of to explain this is that he wanted to go back home to his OWN bed.
Thank goodness for Elmo's World episodes downloaded on the phone to keep this very busy boy occupied on the plane!

Jeff decided to throw his staff Christmas party at our house this year. Lucky me! It was fun to have them but it also was a little crazy with a new baby trying to pull of a four course meal including soup, salad, tri-tip, garlic mashed potatoes, asparagus, and cheesecake. I told him next year we are doing the restaurant thing like the previous year so I can actually enjoy my meal and relax!

Thanks for the update...I don't have internet at home and work will not allow FB so blogs are all I got. Congratulations 6 months late on your sweet baby.
