Ten Weeks Old

So, Luke is now ten weeks old. That's really hard to believe. Also, he had his first set of immunizations today. :( Poor baby! He did well (apart from screaming in such a pitiful way), and calmed fairly quickly afterward, although he did keep his "cry face" for a while. Daddy and I had a hard time with it, but Luke seems to be doing okay. He's slept a lot more today and is fussier than normal but it could be worse. It's hard to try to avoid the outer part of the thigh on a baby cause that's where they're usually held, but we don't want to hurt him. But, people have been doing this for generations, right? And, he did have some nice smiles (some of which quickly turned into frowns or cries) for me this afternoon. So, he's sweet tempered even when he's out of sorts.

In different news, he now weighs 12 pounds, 12 ounces and is 24 inches tall. That apparently puts him in the 90-95th percentile for height, and the 80th percentile for weight. So, there's a reason that he fits nicely length-wise in 3-6 month onesies, but swims in the pants! He's growing very well and we're proud of him. Right now he's studiously NOT napping in his crib. He woke himself up when he pulled his soother out of his mouth about ten minutes ago, but hasn't made a peep. He keeps looking at me and hasn't put his head down once. He thinks he's such a strong, big boy! Okay, now he's fussing a bit so I need to rescue him.

I'll post some more pictures soon!

Mom out.

Rebecca, I love the photo of him that Gina posted. Is there any way you could get it and post it here for those who don't have access to her blog? It's adorable!

And (I wonder how many times we've told you this) his daddy was a sweet-tempered baby too! :-)

Seems most of us were good babies, according to our moms. What great temperaments we have all had passed on to us. I can't believe how big your little guy is. I loved getting to hold him on Sunday and watching him look from side to side, taking everything in. Oh so very sweet!
