Today was Luke's official 9 month well-baby check-up and this afternoon as I had some quiet time I reflected on how lucky we are to have Luke as part of our family. Honestly, I haven't always been so excited to have 2 children. It took 3 years for Julia to join our family and when Luke came along 20 months later I was scared and exhausted. Now it is hard to imagine life with out Luke.

Here are just a few of the things I LOVE about LMH:

*He is a great napper!
*He loves Julia and can always make her smile when Mom can't.
*He is a mellow, happy-go-lucky baby (most of the time) thanks to the thumb.
*He is ours for eternity.

He was such a good sport as he got poked and prodded by the doctor and ended up with 2 shots. Here is his stats from today: 29 inches long (75%), 17lbs 2 oz (5%), and 46 cm head circumference (65%)- a Long and Skinny Kid!

Here is a picture of Luke today and one from 7 months ago.

Thanks for my fix. In the pic on top he looks like Uncle Phil.
