Two Months!- December 29th!

Today Luke turned 2 months old! He is growing so fast!


You are now 2 months old!
You love our soothie. I don't know what I would do without it! You are sleeping better- you have had several days now where you have napped for a few hours at a time, which is a huge improvement from your 15 minute cat naps that you were taking.
Last night you slept 9 hours straight! Praise God!
Sometimes when you sleep you stick your hands straight out in the air- like you are praising the Lord. It is so cute!
You have had your first Christmas- we were with your dad's family for Christmas this year.
You love your Bobba and Joey. They spoiled you so much this Christmas with all your gifts!
You are becoming more vocal- you will talk making vowel sounds, and you have the cutest little squeal when you are super happy. You also love standing up. Standing and looking around are defiantly your top things that you love to do.
You are liking your swing a little more, but still aren't a huge fan. You enjoy sitting up in your bumbo and watching everyone around you.
You are changing more and more each day, and trying to 'figure you out' is so much fun. You are blessing my life daily.

Limo XMas Light Tour!

My brother-in-law and sister-in-law's anniversary was last Thursday and instead of going out by themselves and celebrating, they decided to rent a limo and invite friends to go Christmas light admiring. We went to an awesome neighborhood in Arlington that was covered in lights. Christopher, my brother-in-law, rented a blue hummer limo, named Goliath for 8 of us to ride around in looking at lights. My mother-in-law and a girl from church watched the 2 babies and my 2 year old nephew. It was so nice to get out and away for a few hours! On our way home we stopped at La Hacienda and had amazing dessert. It was a blast! I hope Christopher and Tiffany want to celebrate like this every year!

One month!- November 29th!

I know this is a late post, but I though I would share pics and thoughts about Luke when he was one month old. I am proud of myself for even getting this posted at all, because some days getting dressed and brushing my teeth is an accomplishment!
I was told that Luke would consume all my time- man does he! But I love him- so it's ok! :)


Now that you are one month old you are becoming aware of so much more around you! You love lights- especially the ones on the Christmas tree. You love to stare at them.
You aren't a big fan of your swing, but you love your lay and play gym/mat thing! You lay there for 30 minutes at a time just staring and squealing.
You have had your first cold. Daddy and I have been taking turns steaming you in the shower to help you breath better. And we have been rubbing you down in vapor rub to help you breath better.
You are sleeping about 5-6 hour straight at night and then waking up every 3 hours after that.
You are finally fitting into 0-3 month clothes! Yay!
You love to eat and are eating every 2 hour during the day.
At night you will squirm and squirm fighting me to go to sleep, and the second I hand you to your dad you are lights out. He must have some magic power that I don't, but I am so thankful that you have that bond with him!
You just met your new cousin Taylor Jo- she was born on Nov. 22 and y'all are 3 weeks apart. I hope that you and Taylor will be the best of friends!
For awhile you were having pain after you were eating, and we finally figured out that you have acid reflux, and you're now on Prevacid to help with that- and you take the meds. like a champ!
You aren't into napping much during the day- you love to take quick 20 min. naps making it a little difficult for me to get anything done.
I love your little smile! Every time you look at me with that smile I melt! It is just too prescious!


Breakfast with Santa

Last weekend Luke went and saw Santa at church. I figured that this would be the least germy Santa that we could find! Luke, like the good child he is, asked Santa for diapers, his hospital bills to be paid and for hair on the top of his head. I hope Santa brings him all 3 for Christmas, but the hair might be a stretch. Right now he has the old man ring- hair on both sides and the back, but bald on top. He does have a little fuzz coming in and I am hopeful that it turns into beautiful hair.

His cousins even came and they got a group picture together! Brazos is the proud big cousin of Luke and even more proud big brother of his sister, Taylor. Luke and Taylor are three weeks apart- they are going to be best friends!
