Six Months

Luke, you are six months old...has half a year really gone by already?!? You are still such a joy and truly are the love of mine and daddy's lives. You smile so big when you see us and this just melts our hearts. We have so much fun with you and really cannot remember what our lives were like before you.

Your Stats:
You weigh 20 lbs 1 oz (91% percentile)
You are 27 1/4 inches tall (71% percentile) are perfect!

In the past month we have made a break-through for your naps and night-time routine. We can lay you down in your crib awake with your paci and you will just play yourself right to sleep. We are so proud of you!

You love to play in your baby exerciser and with a little help from Miss Renae, your physical therapist, you are rolling all over the place. We originally went to see Miss Renae because at 2 months Dr. W noticed that your head was slightly leaning to the right. It is not an unknown fact that you, my precious Luke, have a large head! Dr. W let us know that this was common in babies with larger heads because it puts more pressure on the neck muscles. We were told that this would probably correct itself, but given the option to take you to physical therapy. Your momma and daddy just want the very best for you, so we decided that we would definitely go to physical therapy. We were not able to get our first appointment until you were almost 3 1/2 months old. By that time, you were doing so well with your head, but did not want to roll over! Since Miss Renae thought you were just about the cutest and happiest baby she had ever seen...and since the physical therapy sessions were free for us...she offered to see you once a week and help you with your rolling. We were all sad at your last session, and we will greatly miss Renae!

Happy St. Patricks Day!

We started using your high chair (a wonderful gift from Miss Heike) this month. You love to play with your toys while I make your bottle and get your food ready. You love to eat! We have worked our way through most of the solids. You are not a big fan of peas or green beans...but pretty much everything else is great. You love sweet potatoes, carrots, peaches, & pears! We have started trying a sip-pee cup, but you are not the least bit convinced that it could ever replace your bottle!

You continue to love your bath time and getting dressed for bed. Your momma changed some words to the Locomotion and sings the Lotioncomotion when she gives you the baby massage. You think this is just about the most hilarious thing you have ever heard!

Luke you are such a blessing. We love you more and more each day!
