Luke just passed the 4 month mark. He is still a happy, joyful baby. He adores Ellie and has even come around on Tommy, flashing him big smiles as well. He has begun reaching out for objects, constantly has his hands in his mouth, and has started drooling. He is sleeping through the night on most nights. He doesn't love being alone, so he cries if no one is in his eyesight. He is a big, big boy...16 pounds at his 4 month check up. He is a special, jolly soul.

Well 3 month old Luke was a MUCH happier boy than before. Still every bit as smiley and flirty, but now for far longer stints of time. He was starting to sleep for much longer, usually only waking up once a night, for which we were very grateful. He also started to get very chatty, especially right before he went to bed. He would just squeak and chatter for 20 or 30 minutes to anyone that listened. He started filling out in his cheeks, and got stronger in his neck. He has brought so much joy to us. The kids love showing him off at school and now that he smiles when he sees them, well they think that is amazing.
Here are some shots of him making his way through month 3.
Well the first day of school came and went. Ellie is an old pro at her school by now, and walked right on in on day 1, already knowing her teachers and several friends. It's hard to believe she will be in kindergarten next year.
Here's Ellie working away on Day 1.
Tommy was so excited to go to "Ellie's school" this year. He was thrilled to get his own red school bag like Ellie. Now Tommy has never been a child who has liked drop offs, but for some reason drop off on his first day was a breeze. He went in like a big boy and had a great day!
I think part of the appeal was that his teachers had him choose how he wanted to be greeted by looking at a piece of paper...with a handshake, a hug or a high five. He was excited to make that choice. Here he is choosing.
