7 weeks

Well the Lukester turned 7 weeks yesterday.  Pretty unbelievable how fast time flies by.  We have loved this new little addition to our family.  For the most part he is a good boy.  He definitely has his days where I can’t imagine a fussier kid.  But most days he is a sweet boy.  He does love to be held which has been fine since in the last 7 weeks I have had to be alone with 3 kids only 4 days.  Between my mom being here, Thanksgiving vacation and Dan’s paternity leave, I have been really spoiled and so has Luke.  He is a good night time sleeper for the most part, only waking twice to eat around 1 and 4.  He goes to sleep between 8 and 8:30 for the night and will sleep until about 7 most mornings.  He is becoming more aware of all of us and has given us a few good smiles.  Although his favorite things to look at still remain the lights and frames on the wall.  He is a good boy in the car which is so nice since we are always running to and from preschool.  He is becoming a more efficient eater these days and sometimes can go 3+ hours without needing to eat.  Pretty nice for me!  He has his first cold thanks to Sophie and gets pretty traumatized when I suck his nose out.  Poor guy.  We also thought he got a flu bug this last week since it seemed that he threw up 3 times one night and then didn’t have a wet diaper for 8 hours or so.  But now we wonder if he just over ate.  I guess we’ll never know.  But I have never been more grateful for my new electric pump!  Our biggest challenge is getting him to take naps in his crib.  It is a work in progress.  We’ll get there.   Enjoy the photos from the last few weeks.

  1. Tis the season to be sick! Ellia just sees us grabbing a tissue to wipe her nose and starts shaking her head and hiding her face. Don’t they know we’re just trying to help them? 🙂

  2. Another turn to hold the little guy. Next time we see him he probably won’t want to be cuddled anymore. Hope he’s feeling as good as new.
