This morning Lars said his first 2 word sentence! He said, "Eat apple"! Then proceeded to eat his apple!:):) He really is way too smart for his own good!
I just thought this picture was cute. It looks like he's pulling out his wallet to see if he has change or something!

I just thought I would share with you what we have been watching lately; about 10 times a day for the last week!
Lars has been watching Seasame Street clips, Tom & Jerry and other "old" cartoons on Hulu. I have been trying to think of things for Lars to do while I'm nursing Stina. Most of the time he is happy just playing, but sometimes he gets jealous that I'm holding her, so I let him sit in my lap and watch a "show".
For those of you wondering, why he has to watch them on Hulu (on a laptop), it's because we don't have a TV. We don't have anything against it. Actually, it drives my boss crazy, cause we know so much about what's on TV and we don't have one! :) We just don't have one because we decided when we got married we didn't want one for our first year of marriage, because we knew it was a huge waste of time. Well it's been almost 7 years and we still don't have one.
Well, that was a really long explaination for a short video clip. I hope you enjoy it!!

Stina gets to come home today!! She is doing SO much better. I will fill in some of the gaps later, but she had to stay in the NICU because they were treating her for pneumonia and jaundice. It will be SO nice to have her home where we can hold her! and not have to go back and forth to the hospital anymore!!
Here are a few pictures from the week!

Lars has been walking while holding onto someone or something for at least a month now, but recently he has decided to do it on his own! He took his first steps (without help) about 2 weeks ago. Now he is walking by himself a lot! He will just stand up and go for it. Here are a couple videos of Lars showing off his walking skills!! :)

Lars loves to eat corn on the cob! We have given it to him twice now. The first time we tried cutting the corn off and giving it to him, he wanted nothing to do with it, he wanted the whole thing! Now we have to give him his own ear of corn.

Father's Day 2008
I just wanted to take this opportunity to say what a wonderful Daddy and husband Karl truely is!!! I can't believe he is on Father's Day #2 next thing you know it will be 20! Time has gone by way too fast since Lars' birth! Sometimes I wish life would slow down a little bit!
Karl is not only my best friend, but he is a wonderful husband! He works very hard to provide for his family. Then somehow in his free time manages to paint, build and entertain!! :) Every once in a while we let him have some time off to ride his motorcycle or go to the gun range, but he always manages to be home in time to grill dinner for us!
Karl also spends time playing with Lars, which is one of the greatest joys of my life. I love to see Lars' face light up when Karl comes in the room! They spend lots of time playing ball, drumming (make noise:), building things and splashing in the bath or pool.
THANK YOU KARL FOR BEING SUCH A GREAT DAD!!

For those of you who know my dad, Dale Hardy, you will not be suprised at all by his resent request. He has been a major player is having several old LeTourneau Vehicles located, rebuilt and modeled. As a result of his interest in LeT vehicles he is a member of a Historical Truck society. One of his good friends in the society is the owner of this 1917 Military Truck, that is currently the oldest vehicle taking part in the "Transcontinental Motor Convoy", traveling from D.C. to San Fran. For more details: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transcontinental_Motor_Convoy
Dad's request was to have Lars' picture taken in the 1917 truck! Lars and I had a great time checking out all the military vehicles that are taking part in the TMC. Lars took a particular interst in the motorcycle:) The owner was nice enough to let Lars sit on it for a photo op!
Dad, wish you could have come with us!

Lar and I went to Nebraska this past weekend for my cousin Jake's wedding. As you can tell we had a great time hanging out with the fam! Although, Lars has some stranger anxiety with most people, he felt right at home the the craziest people around. Maybe cause that is "his normal", with me for a mom!!
My Aunt Becky took us to the Omaha Zoo on Friday before the wedding. Hands down this is the best zoo I have been too in a long time! If you are ever in NE you have to go!! If you see any crazy animals out of the cages, don't worry, it's probably just my family! :):)
Lars is normally a great kid, but I have to give him major props for this weekend! He was really on his A-game the whole time! For four days he never got to have a whole nap and he went to bed around 11pm each night. He didn't complain, he just kept rolling with the punches, and hammin' it up! We had such a great time!!
