Tribute: Great-Grandmother Barbara, 8.7.24-3.25.09

Julian was Barbara Stewart McDonald's first great-grandchild. He never got to meet her, but she knew all about him and in fact had many photos of Julian nearby when she passed away in Albuquerque, NM on Wednesday. I hope Julian will inherit her creative spirit. 
Here we are on the morning of March 25th. We love you Grandmommy!

Outside adventures!

At long last, Spring seems to be peeking her head out from behind the snow. And with warmer weather comes: walking! Playing outside! Exploring! Being extra cute!

Then the family sat on the stoop and chatted with neighbors:

Happy 3 Months Julian!!

On March Third, 2009, Julian Albert Luker turned three months of age, which some would say means that he graduated from infancy to babyhood. We celebrated with a chocolate cake and dressing him in the craziest outfit we could assemble:

Oops... I fell asleep on the couch.

Dr. Sears says that you can't make a baby sleep-- rather, sleep overtakes the baby.
