Luke: Week 44...


44-week highlights:
  • When Luke smiles his 2 bottom teeth show and it is just the cutest thing I've ever seen!
  • Luke is finally starting to eat some solid food.  Tonight at dinner I cut up a banana and broke apart a muffin and he actually ate some of it!  We are making progress!
  • Luke loves to stand up and walk around the furniture while holding onto it.  I think he could take steps any day now!
  • He loves to play in the toilet.  Obviously we try to prevent this from happening, but sometimes we fail :)
  • Changing Luke's diaper requires a strong arm and a whole lot of determination.  He is so wiggly it seems impossible sometimes!
  • His naps are still pathetic :(  What would work out well for me is if he just fell asleep in the stroller on the way to pick up Henry from school.  He actually did that today, but I'm not going to get my hopes up that this will happen again.  We'll see.
  • He is still nursing every 3-4 hours.  Hopefully we can keep increasing his solids and spread out his feedings even more.
  • His night nursing is getting to be too much.  He wakes up and literally the only way I can get him to go back to sleep is to nurse him.  If we try to rock him he'll just wiggle and move and stare at us, but not go to sleep.  Since we know that moving into Sharon's Aunt Alma's house on Justin Court is a likely possibility, we aren't wanting to make any drastic changes with the sleeping arrangements until that happens.  This means that right now the night nursing is what we're sticking with.  Ugh.  It's getting old.  We need to try and let him cry it out again, but we have to wait until he isn't sharing a room with Henry and Charlie to do it.  So complicated.
  • Luke hasn't been too keen on the nursery lately.  The church nursery has been horrible and the aerobics nursery hasn't been much better.  We start CBS tomorrow, so we'll see how that goes.
  • We love our Lukers!
