I have not updated the blog in a while. Luke had his first sickness a little over a week ago with a cold and ear infection. It hurts to see your baby sick. We went to the doctor and he was put on antibiotic which made a great difference in the way he felt.
We went to the doctor a few days later to his 4 month old check up and shots. He weighed 15 lbs. and 6 oz. 25 inches long. When the doctor walked in and saw him she told me that he was going to be off the charts for his weight. When she looked to see how much he weighed she was in shock that he only weighed 15 lbs. He was in the 50 percentile in his weight and 51 percentile in his height. He may look chunky but he really ins't. He carries it all in his cheeks.
The doctor suggeted us starting ceral. We started Friday and Luke LOVES it. He directs his head towards the spoon. I had heard that babies usually spit out the ceral the first time they try it....not Luke.
I know I talked about the New Year before I posted anything about Christmas...so here is Christmas.
We went to visit Brian's parents in Arkansas this year for Christmas. It was cold and rainy ...never snowed :(. We had a great time. Brian's sister, Kelly came with her husband and 3 kids. Kelly's 3 kids LOVE Luke. They always wanted to be by Luke and wanted to know what Luke was doing at all times. Luke always had someone's hands in his face. Luke is lucky to have so much love. A couple of Brian's Aunt's and Uncle's also came for a couple days...we had a full house. We had a great time with everyone! Luke had a great 1st christmas!
2009 has been the best year for Brian and I. I am sure you can guess why....yes a new addition to the family a healthy baby boy, Luke. I have been blessed to have had Luke. He is not only healthy, cute but also is HAPPY! He is a little over 3 months and he is changing everyday. When he smiles at me it melts my heart. I could not imagine him not being here. Motherhood is GREAT! I am not sure what 2010 has in store for us but hopefully it will rank right up with 2009.
My 2010 resoulutions is to loose my baby weight. I have lost 20 lbs but I still have 20 more pounds to go. I would really like to loose 25 pounds. My goal is to loose 20 pounds by the end of March. I HAVE TO DO IT! Another resolution is to hold Luke and play with him more. Sometimes I put Luke in his bouncy seat so I can CLEAN the house and I feel guilty.
