Look What Lucas Did!

He slept in his bed in his room for the first time last night! He didn't sleep quite as sound as he usually does.. he woke up crying 3 times wanting a bottle, but overall it was a good night! I am so proud of my big boy!!

This Morning

Lucas had his 2 month doctor's appointment and vaccinations this morning. He did very well... he cried during the (5!) shots, but once they were over, he stopped and was just ready to eat! Since we have gotten home, he has been a little fussier than usual, but I think it is just from the soreness; his temperature is staying normal. David was able to work from home today, so we have been taking turns cuddling him and soothing him. He is also taking baby Tylenol every 4 hours that seems to be helping.

On a brighter note, he weighed 13 pounds 12 ounces and has grown 4 1/2 inches, putting him in the 90th percentile! He is getting so big and strong!!!

Having Fun!

I haven't been able to be quick enough with my camera to capture one of Lucas' smiles yet... they are becoming more and more frequent, but I did snap one of him holding his rattle! His grip on it is getting better!

My "Big" Man

Wow! I didn't realize how long it had been since I last posted on the blog! I will try to do better.. promise! Life has been busy around here- in the very best way, of course. Lucas is growing unbelievably fast! He is already about to outgrow some of his 3 month clothes and he is just 7 weeks old. He is so long! I am loving my time at home with him. He is trying so hard to smile. Last week I got a couple of the wide "gummy" smiles and since then we have gotten little grins (he just can't quite get his lips to curl as much as he wants them to.. it is so cute). He is really building strength in his neck. He can hold it up unsupported for longer and longer each day... he looks like a little bobblehead sometimes. :o) During the day, he misses his daddy so much. We have a picture of David and I on the wall beside the couch and when Lucas is looking around the room, it catches his eye several times throughout the day. He just stares at it, like, 'I see my daddy... but something is different!' It is sooo funny! Nana tried to get it on video for us yesterday when she came over to spend some time with us. Ahh... these are the days that I will look back at one day and wonder how they all went by so fast! I will be going back to work the second week in February and although I am anxious to get back into my classroom, I admit I am already dreading the day that I won't be with him all day.... I think I'll actually miss all the poopy diapers I complain about now... lol.

Late Night Photo Session

While we were waiting on the ball to drop last night, we took some photos... these are a few of the best ones! :o)
