A Weekend with Mimi & Papa!

Luke was able to have some great bonding time this past weekend with Mimi and Papa as they came up to visit him and watch over him while Drew and I crossed some things off of our lists.  We did lots of shopping with them and we even got to have a date night while they watched little Luke.  For our "date night" we saw the Nutcracker ballet.  Neither Drew nor I have actually ever been to a ballet, and I have always wanted to see the Nutcracker.  We are both really glad we were able to see it, but I must say we both now can truthfully say we prefer musicals or plays and don't need to go to any more ballets.  Not that there is anything wrong with ballet--it is very beautiful--but we both decided we needed words to the story.  We had a difficult time understanding what was going on.  It was very nice though to have a "date"--we had a lot of fun.  Thanks Mimi and Papa for watching over little Luke--we really enjoyed having you all visit this weekend.  Luke also had a lot of fun and is looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Some recent milestones for Luke:

  • He has transitioned from "cooing" to nearly singing.  It is so cute to hear him and we will be videoing him soon and posting some of his "music" on here probably on our next post, after Christmas and the new year.  We just love his little voice!
  • He will follow us with his eyes and head as we walk across the room and loves watch to us as we do dishes, laundry, etc.  
  • He smiles when daddy comes home!  He is recognizing each of our voices now and gets very excited, smiling and kicking his legs when one of us comes home after not seeing him for a little while. 
  • He is still just sleeping about 5 hours max at a time at night, but we are trying to get him into more of a routine so that he can sleep even more--that will be nice!  :-) 
  • His medicine for GERD really seems to be helping--that is when he keeps it down.  We're pretty sure now that the problem this whole time has been his acid reflux--poor little guy.  But, we're glad we figured it out and our little man is feeling better!

Here are some pics from this weekend:
