Week One

Well, Luke is one week old today. The week has gone by pretty fast and I am in love with my little boy. Minus some feeding issues and a few sleepless nights, things are going very well. He loves to be held, of course. He hates to have his diaper changed. During every diaper change he starts crying as soon as you unbutton his clothes. Soon, about the time the wipes come out, he lets out these little screams. It sounds like a little girl who is scared. Abby has been an outstanding big sister. She loves her baby brother and is coping well with the lack of attention from mommy. I am very proud of her. We have had a few girl moments. I painted her toenails and we went to get movies together. I am so used to it being just me and Abby. I miss our "girl time" too. Last night Luke went four hours between feedings during the night. I hope that continues! Here are some pictures from our first week home.

Up close and personal with Luke Russell.




This is a present from Abby. She picked it out at Babies R Us. She said "This is just perfect for baby Luke!" I had to buy it. It plays soothing music and sounds like a rain forest. He laid in his crib for 30 minutes just listening wide awake.




He is not crying...although it kind of looks like he is. This is one of his "smiles" although I don't think babies start smiling quite yet. Maybe it's gas :)

Dancing the night away

This video is from Lena's (Leif's sister) wedding. The kids danced all night. This is my favorite video I captured of Abby doing her "techno dancing."

Abby 'laughing'

video

After Abby's bath the other night she got into this laughing fit. It started out real and then she began to do her fake laugh. By the time I got the camera to video tape her she was well into her fake laugh but I thought it was so cute I had to catch it on video.
