Could it be?

So last night made three nights in a row.  Three nights in a row that Luke has slept through the night.  Not just for 6 to 7 hours but 8 to 9 hours.  The first night I thought okay this has happened before don't get too excited; the second night I thought wow could this possibly mean that we are going to make this a nightly routine now; and last night or rather this morning I thought maybe I can officially say he is sleeping through the night.  I'm not going to start expecting it every night yet but hopefully this trend will continue.  Let's just hope writing about it hasn't jinxed it because we all know that sleep is a wonderful thing :)

Sunday was Troy's and my 6th wedding anniversary- unbelievable, time has gone so fast.  We celebrated by going to the park for a picnic lunch with Luke and taking some family pictures.  Troy set up a tripod that allowed us to take some great shots.  We had a great time being outside and spending time with Luke.  Poor guy did great until the last few pictures when he fell asleep.  It allowed us to capture one of the best pictures of him.

Perfect Pout

Luke has the most perfect pouty lip.  It is absolutely adorable and always makes me smile when he brings it out.  It has been hard to capture it on film but yesterday I managed to do so.  Hopefully he will outgrow it because how can you say no to this face.

Story Time

Luke loves being read to.  I have hopes that he will become an avid reader as I was when I was younger (still am actually).  My worn copies of the Laura Ingalls Wilder books are evidence of my repeating reading of the series.  I kept those books hoping to have a daughter someday to read them to- not the case yet; however, another more recent series is more fitting for a boy and one I have enjoyed as well.  I am referring to the Harry Potter books.  I have this series in hardback and know it will fair better than paperback.  My hope is that the next time I read of Harry's adventures Luke will be in my arms listening intently.

Recent Activities

It's been a while since I've posted.  We have been busy people lately.  

To celebrate my birthday, Troy and I went to OKC for a night.  Troy's parents came to stay with Luke.  This was the first time I had been away from Luke for so long.  I felt like I was missing something the whole time I was gone.  It was great to have a full nights sleep and a nice dinner without interruption but I missed my munchkin a bunch.  I was quite happy to return home and hold Luke (which I did for 4 hours straight because I didn't want to put him down).

The weekend of September 27 we went to visit family outside of Branson, MO.  It was the first time Luke was able to meet Kristi and Wesley although the meeting was probably more memorable from their standpoint.

The following Monday my mom came down for a visit.  She stayed until Thursday morning.  We hung out, did a few things around the house that I hadn't been able to get to and of course went shopping.  Luke accommodated us in all of our activities- he really is a great baby.

This past weekend we were home just the 3 of us.  We were able to accomplish a bunch while Luke was sleeping which was desperately needed.  We also had fun playing with Luke and we finally finished his nursery with putting everything up on the walls.  It looks great.


We are now anxiously waiting for Aunt Sarah's visit in a week and a half.  She recently returned from a month in Costa Rica and we are ready to see the pictures and hear all about it.  We also have a trip planned so that all of Troy's extended family can meet Luke.  I thought we would not be as busy after we had a baby but I think the opposite is true.
