Luke has been a busy boy the last 2 months!
He has mastered the crawling thing, he has perfected standing and cruising, and climbing up the 2 stairs we have in our apartment is done with ease, but not without our hearts stopping a bit each time. He has figured out how to get himself into interesting positions and is often being rescued by a sibling from getting stuck under stools, on the bottom of shelves and between toys. He loves to just crawl off and go explore and the big kids are having to be very careful what toys they leave around!
Luke has just JUST recently decided that we were not trying to poison him by sticking a spoonful of food in his mouth and he has started eating. We are still at one meal a day, but that is HUGE progress. He actually swallows and takes in some actual food each day! We are really thankful for the progress he has made.
He now takes 4 bottles a day, at 7am, 10am, 2:30pm, and 7:30pm.
We have finally settled into 2 naps a day, and he goes down pretty regularly at 10am and 2:45pm. He will take a 1.5-2 hr morning nap, and a 2.5 hr afternoon nap. He has gotten really good at going to sleep well and always sleeps on his side. He will roll himself halfway and grab a blanket to snuggle with. I need to capture this soon so I don’t forget how precious he looks when he sleeps! My mommy brain will only remember for so long.
The big kids LOVE to jump in on Luke’s pictures. SO sweet how much they adore him.
Then daddy came in the room. Luke lights up when he sees him!
My oldest and my youngest. Precious!
And Luke has a friend too! Just in case he had free time after all his siblings held him!
Riley is 2 weeks younger than he is and they like to hit milestones around the same time. (Although I am confident that she will beat him to the walking thing).
The big kids think it is fun to watch them have crawling races.
Riley is faster, but she often gets distracted by all the activity of the rest of the kids.
The day he mastered the stairs. Going up anyway.
The day he swallowed a bite of carrots.
Luke and I traveled to Hong Kong recently, where he and I both had checkups. Everything came back fine and he weighed in at 19.4lbs! BLOWS my mind how much he has grown! He looks super chubby, partly because he is chubby, but also because he is shorter. He has hit all his milestones on time and is right on track.
More sibling time. Going for a ride powered by Hope.
He is super duper proud of himself.
She tried to make him feel better, but he was not having it!
It has been a fun 2 months watching Luke grow by leaps and bounds. The time is going all too fast and I am just savoring each day we have with him! What an absolute joy he is!
