Luke: Week 5...

  • 5-week highlights:

    • At Luke's one-month appointment he weighed 14 lbs. and was 23 inches long.  He gained 5 lbs. since birth and 2 1/4"!  Henry weighed pretty much the same as Luke at birth and at one month he only weighed 11 lbs. 6 1/2 oz. (Charlie's birthweight :).  Charlie weighed 16 lbs!  But Luke gained the most in one month's time...
    • Luke made his first trip down south for Aaron and Courtney Frantz's wedding in Malibu.  He was a trooper and pretty much slept the entire drive both ways.
    • Luke is still sleeping pretty well at night.  We usually put him down between 9 and 10 and then he sleeps until 2 or 3ish eats and then goes back to sleep until 5 or 6ish.  (Although, I am currently typing this at 3:45 in the morning because he WON'T go back to sleep, so maybe things are changing, who knows!)
    • Luke is rolling over from his tummy to his back.  Henry, in particular, is getting a huge kick out of this.
    • Smiles are almost here!  By 6 weeks I think he will be giving us grins for sure :)
    • White noise is definitely a life saver for us.  When Luke is fussy, bouncing him in the kitchen with the microwave vent on high usually helps him relax and oftentimes fall asleep.  I wish I would have known about the power of white noise when Henry was a baby!
    • Overall I'd say Luke is a very soothe-able baby.  He definitely gets fussy once in awhile (particularly during that 4-6pm time when I'm trying to get dinner on the table :) but overall if I bounce him or feed him he usually calms down pretty quickly.  
    • Luke is bringing great joy to our family.  We are thrilled to have another little boy around :)
