Christmas 2011.

We spent Christmas Eve with the Leroy family.  On Christmas Day we went to my parents and then in the evening Brant's family came to our house.
We have been lying pretty low otherwise since both boys have colds.  Hank started last week with congestion and one night with croupy cough.  A few days later we noticed Luke had some congestion. 
Here is hoping we all have good health in the New Year!

Getting ready for Santa.  "He will be excited for that."

Reading Mommy's book.


Hank's real breakfast.

You better not pout!

My future trouble makers - looks like they are already cooking up something!

Here is a video too:

Luke update.

Luke has been back to the Doctor twice since coming home, for routine check-ups.  He is up one pound from his birth weight, at 10 lbs 14 oz.  He is in the 98th percentile.
He is 22 1/2 inches which is "off the charts."

He sleeps a good bit still and is up once or twice during the night to feed.  He has a little fussy period around  9 or 10 at night, which we think is gas related.

He had his photos taken when he was one week old and they turned out super cute.

Two weeks

Monkey see, Monkey do!

He's just perfect!

Wanted to share a video of Hank meeting his baby brother:

We have been adjusting to life as a family of four.  I feel like I am just now, physically getting back to normal. I did have some bad headaches during the past week.  I had those with Hank too.  Yesterday I went back to the Doctor for him to look at my incision and my blood pressure was high, so back to labor and delivery I went to have blood work ( I thought I was done with that place!)
Thankfully my blood work was fine and he wants me to keep monitoring my pressures.

Brant went back to work yesterday.  He was a big help to us last week when I was not able to do much.  Hank continues with his school on Tuesday and Thursday.  Those are the quiet days at home:)
Luke sleeps much of the day.  At night he gets up about twice a night to feed.  So far he is a content baby.

Luke Thomas!

Luke Thomas was born on Saturday December 3 at 8:46 am.  He was 9 lbs 14 oz and 20 1/2 inches long.

He has been such a delight and we are so happy to have him here with us.  We were able to leave the hospital on Monday, a day early, since I was doing fine.  I was so happy to come home because I started with sinus problems in the few days before his birth and the dry hospital air was making it worse.  Brant ended up taking me to the Doctor yesterday and I got on an anitbiotic for a sinus infection.  I already feel a lot better!
Hank LOVES his brother.  When he has been away from us the first person he wants to see is Luke and not Mommy or Daddy!

(Luke 1:14) He will be a joy and delight to you, and many will rejoice because of his

Making his list!

Hank has been looking at all the toy catalogs that have been coming in the mail.  He points to everything and says "I want to show you something.  My wants this and my wants this."  It is so funny how he looks though them and he knows so many things by name.  Things I didn't even know he knew about!
I have been having to play the Santa card a lot lately to get him to listen to me!
It usually works, but he does question it.  When I tell him Santa is watching him, he says," I don't see him.  How is he watching me?"  Also when I sang him Santa Claus is coming to Town, he said, "My don't live in town.  My lives in the big house." 

Here is a video of him looking at some of the toys he wants ( he is now getting into Super Hero's):
