Luke we sure love you. Thanks for being in our family :)
Master Luke is four and a half months old already. HOW IS IT HAPPENING SO QUICKLY!? Wasn’t he this squishy baby yesterday? These photos are actually from about a month ago when he was starting to get the hang of tummy time. Now he’s rolling around, starting solid foods and weighs a whopping 16 pounds!
At his four month checkup this week, Luke couldn’t stop grinning at our dear old doctor. This doctor of ours is pretty much a dinosaur, but Luke sure loves him. Cold stethoscope and all, he was smiling away. Of course when the needles came out that smile left his face, but it was pretty cute up until then.
This boy is a true delight to be around. It’s never hard to get a grin from his soft chubby cheeks and his happy personality often makes others smile, too. I never tire of looking into his round, blue eyes. It’s easy to see he already has a love for life and I look forward to seeing the great things he does in his time.
This boy loves his sister. You’ll often find him scanning the room trying to figure out what where she is and what she’s up to. It’ll be fun to see them play more and more, especially when he has a little more choice in what they do. For example I walked into the room today to find Madeline riding on his back exclaiming,”Go Luke, go!”
This boy loves his daddy, too. He’s got a nervous smile reserved just for him. I’m pretty sure he can’t decide if he should be excited or scared whenever he see’s daddy’s face coming in close… probably depends on how recently his daddy shaved. (Confession: we all brace for daddy’s scruffy kisses, it’s not just Luke :) )
But I think if I’m being perfectly honest, I’d have to let you know that this boy has an extra special spot for his mama. Probably has something to do with the fact that I’m the one who feeds him all the time, but I like to think he’s becoming a little bit of a mama’s boy because of it. Just a little, ya know ;) I love the stare-offs we have while he’s nursing. And how sometimes he can be a little flirt, and then gets bashful. Oh this boy has my heart.
