Lucas @10 mos

Before I sign off until Easter Sunday, let me post 7 quick takes about Lucas. Linking up as usual with Kelly.

1. This boy loves to eat!
He eats everything now. He had his first taste of gelato on our trip to Lima. He eats chicken. He had the rice of the arroz con mariscos dish. We did not give him shellfish or shrimp or fish but rice had some seafood juice and he did fine (thankfully!)

He likes finger foods - hello cheerios and goldfish.

2. He had his first international trip!
And it's in South America.

We took Daniel to Aruba. But Lucas made it  south of the equator.
His older sibs, Lucy and Bastian still have him beat by mileage since they went to the Philippines last year. But Lucas holds the crown for going south of the equator!

(Isabel, I hope you won't read this in the future... Because you're the only one who has not been outside of the country yet.... your time will come. I did not leave the Philippines for my first plane ride until I was 11 years old. You will have me beat for sure.)

3. such a flirt.
Being away from his siblings for seven days made him crave for attention. Hubs and I were not enough for him. When we were at the park or church or restaurant, he stared at the ladies and waited and waited until he is recognized. He then gave them the cheesiest, most handsome Lucas smile ever!

my four munchkins

These four are a hoot!
I told them I want to take their photos "walking" and they pretended that they are robots.  Their most favorite thing to do when I take out my camera is to jump and run.

My canon6d is great for still photos and portraits. It's not known for action and sports shots. When you have 4 moving bodies, I am failing at this photography thing.

I sure miss them! I know that they are having the best time while momma and dada are out.

Lucas @ 9 mos

1. Stats
weight 19 lbs 8 oz

2. Pulling up to stand
I predicted that he will be pulling up to stand  on my last Lucas blog post. He just started doing just that this week!

He even made it up the first step of the stair! whoa!
Do not underestimate his monkey scoot. He is fast.

3. See that bald spot on the second photo above?
He is mobile and up and about. Usually when my other children were at this point, they loose their bald spot. Just not Lucas. I don't even have a photo of the other children's bald spot. Glad I took this one of Lucas. Something to remember, eh?

4. Fave foods
He still nurses pretty much every 3-4 hours (even at night! I know... I know...)
He also likes solids. He eats yogurt, dumplings, rice.  We went to our fave ramen place (thanks sissy and Hery for the recommendation) this week. We ordered the takoyaki and gyoza. Lucas ate an entire dumpling on his own.

5. Red cheeks
Eczema affects all my children, more so when they are infants. Lucas' cheeks are so red and dry because he rubs his cheeks on the bed and our chest or shoulders. I put aquaphor or vaseline but a few minutes later, it's all rubbed off. He rubs off the skin protectant. I hope the warmer weather will help heal his cheeks soon.

6. Other firsts
We received his first passport a couple of weeks ago. He is joining me and hubs to a trip coming up soon! I pray he does well on the plane. He wants crawls all over the place. I am open for ideas on how to keep a 9 month old busy.

7. Sibs
When the older children get out of school, I get pushed to the side. Lucas listens to Isabel while she reads her books. He follows his siblings all over the house. If he can chase them, he will do it. I have an inkling, he will run after them pretty soon. Am I ready for that??? Not really.
