4 weeks old, Luke's first Halloween & Picture day!

Luke is 4 weeks old today!  I can't believe how quickly time flies.  He is staying awake a little more each day.  We tried out the Baby Bjorn carrier the other day.  Luke likes to be held a lot, so mommy thought it would be a good idea to try this out to give her a couple of free hands for a little while and let Luke observe his surroundings.  He LOVED it!  He especially likes looking at the bathroom vanity lights.  It is so fun to watch him take in new things for the first time. 

We received a coupon in the mail the other day from Sears portrait studio.  It's amazing how much new mail you begin receiving once companies find out you have a newborn.  I'm not sure how we got on so many mailing lists.  Anyway, we decided it would be a great time to get Luke's first formal pictures so we can cherish the memories and save a little money at the same time.  It was a little difficult to keep him comfortable with so many outfit changes, but we did get a few really good pictures.  Here are some below, but we also have posted some on our picasaweb picture folder:

Our First Formal Family Photo


Luke was not happy about picture day at first (he was very happy and cozy in his car seat before we took him out for pictures.)

Here he is in his monkey Halloween costume.

We actually got a little smile out of him while he was sleeping (the picture was snapped at just the right moment).

  1. Adorable! Sounds like the Baby Bjorn carrier is a handy thing to have.

  2. Those are some great pictures! I love the one of him smiling and of you kissing him! Cute! His little Halloween outfit is so cute on him!! Glad he likes the carrier- I bet it is nice just to change things up a bit.

  3. Nice pictures. My favorite is the one of Luke smiling! We can't wait to see you at Thanksgiving!
