This was his 20 week ultrasound Dec 21 2005
Doesn't Heikki look so proud and happy to be a dad?!
Markku traveled lots as a baby. He went to Washington/Oregon, Alaska, Pennsylvania and NY all before he was 5 months old!
This is his first hike in the Alaska Wilderness (Sept 2006)
Traveling in style with Isa-in downtown Anchorage
Pastor Larry baptized him. We traveled all the way to Alaska for his baptism. I loved our church, Amazing Grace Lutheran Church and our Pastor (Larry Jorgenson).
His happy grandparents in Boerne, outside of San Antonio. The one with Ukki is his first football game. He fell asleep! He had to be held all the time-so we used the baby bjorn lots! And once again he was sleeping. If I didn't remember correctly, I would think he always slept! Look at this cute yawn:
But we used to try everything to get him to sleep through the night-even swaddling! Sound familiar-I guess my kids don't like sleeping!
Mummo Laukkanen and Markku-the perfect wedding date!
First concert in Zilker park-Blues on the green (July 2006) and first dance with a bride (cousin Katri Aug 2006)
First movie Pirates of the Caribbean (July 2006) and first airline flight (in the cockpit even-Aug 2006)
I just always liked this photo. I wanted him to wear everything people gave us at least once. But cousin Katri sent these outfits too late (Markku was also a big boy) so I could barely squeeze him in this when it arrived. So we took a picture right away. She also made him this awesome hat he wore in Alaska to keep warm. Boy did we laugh at first since it was 100 degrees out when it arrived in the mail!
Snow?! In Texas? Fake snow in Boerne for their Christmas fair!
