Luke eats applesauce

Luke has been eating applesauce for about a week now!  He is also picking up on acorn squash and bananas.  He's a pretty neat eater so far, but Mommy and Daddy are doing the feeding.  Things will probably change when he gets a hold of the spoon himself.

Luke's First Christmas

We spent Christmas Eve at home in our apartment, and Luke got to open up a few presents. He got some blocks, a toy camera, some socks, a few bowls and a new sippy cup from Mommy and Daddy. He was a little overwhelmed with all of the action but managed to hold it together pretty well before he went to bed. Next Christmas should be really exciting when we have a toddler on our hands!

Luke also turned 6 months old the day after Christmas and has his checkup coming up on New Year's Eve.

Luke and Delaney

Luke got to hang out with his friend Delaney during the Mothers of Young Children meeting tonight! They stayed on their respective blankets but smiled and laughed at each other as they recognized that there was another baby in front of them. Luke showed off some of his new upper body strength and did some baby push-ups. He must have been trying to impress Miss Delaney!

Meanwhile, the moms swapped cookies and may have sampled a few. We're so glad Kari and Delaney got to stay and visit today!

Luke meets Santa

Luke got to be a part of the Santa Claus special that will air on Christmas Eve on KVUE! He enjoyed listening to the music and watching all the big kids dance, and was totally fascinated when Santa Claus walked in, ringing his jingle bells. He listened to Santa read "'Twas The Night Before Christmas" and even got a Christmas present!

After the show taping, Luke got to meet the man in red, and couldn't take his eyes off of him. He even got a fistful of beard and determined it was real!

Luckily Luke has been a good boy for the almost-half-year he's been with us, so we think this won't be the last time Santa visits!

Sitting up!

Luke has started sitting up on his own, although it's usually only for a few seconds at a time. He is getting better and better at holding himself up, but he slowly starts leaning forward until he is sucking on his socks. He's learning to enjoy holding a toy and chewing on it while he sits in place. The Bumbo and the high chair are still getting a lot of use, though!
