quick update

Luke turned 8 weeks old yesterday! (eight weeks!!?!?!?!) anyway, that meant a trip to the doctor for his first round of shots... it was not easy for mommy, but daddy was there to comfort both of us! (such a blessing that Greg comes with us!!!)
Luke took it like a champ and has done really well yesterday and today, recovering from 5 shots! he's such a good baby!
So, the vital statistics: Luke now has a head circumference of 15 inches (13.75 at birth), he is now 22.25 inches long (19.5 at birth), and he weighs 11 pounds, 14 ounces (7 pounds, 10 ounces at birth)!! That means he has gained over four pounds in 8 weeks!! he has only had his mother's milk and we are both very proud of that accomplishment!!
alrighty, i have to go - both Luke and I need a bath/shower as he peed/pooped all over himself, me, the Boppy pillow, etc... during our last little feeding session... Gotta love it, I don't think I'll ever really be "clean" again - what with milk, spit up, and the previously mentioned diaper activities ... being a mommy is the best vocation ever, I absolutely treasure every minute of it!!!
