I promise that we did not hang our child upside down in order to obtain this video. My technology skills, or lack thereof, prohibited me from being able to turn the video right-side-up. I think it is still quite enjoyable. What can I say? I'm definitely a first time mom. :)

2 months...and counting!

We had Luke's 2 month appointment yesterday. This was his first round of shots. He wasn't too thrilled about that part of the appointment (or his parents). One day he'll understand. :) Our favorite part was finding out how quickly this little guy is growing!

Weight: 14 lbs 9 oz (97th %tile)
Height: 24 inches (86th %tile)
Head: 42.3 cm (95th %tile)

Our pediatrician joked that maybe they measured around his cheeks and not his forehead--we really like our doc. Maybe he isn't so "little" according to the growth charts! We're quite proud of Luke and his growth achievements. He has been experiencing more reflux-type symptoms lately. We decided to try him on Zantac and see if that helps him. Let the guessing game of parenting begin! Otherwise, he is doing great!

One of Luke's favorite things to do lately is to hang out on the couch.

However, he thinks that he is a "big boy" now and can sit up like one. He just needs a pillow or two by him and he feels like he is one of the guys. Bryan and Luke have enjoyed quite a few Saturday afternoons together, just like the picture below, watching college football.

The post-game discussion...

I love this picture.

Luke has also discovered his hands, much to his delight. He manages to gum them quite regularly. I can't believe how quickly he is changing, maybe he is turning into a "big boy."

Luke's Blessing

Yesterday was Luke's blessing. It was such a special day for our family. We were lucky to have both sets of grandparents make it! I cannot believe that Luke is almost 2 months old already. He is such a joy in our lives.
