A Week of Firsts

Growing up is exciting! As a parent, I look forward to each milestone with bittersweet feelings. I can't wait for the next stage of development but know that each day takes us farther away from babyhood. Turning 4 months has been a major turning point for Lucas. It started with rolling over last Friday. Then, he tried rice cereal Sunday and loved it! He acted like a hungry bird and knew exactly what to do with the spoon.
Next, came staying in bible class all by himself without Mom or Dad. According to his teacher, he is the loudest of the bunch, letting loose squeals of delight at each toy put in front of him. I think he looks like such a big boy in his shirt!

All in all, Lucas is changing everyday. He now weighs 15 lbs. 2 oz. and is 26 in. long. His easy going personality is evident in his constant smiles and gentle nature. We are so blessed to have 2 wonderful children.

He's so cute! I can't believe he's already chowing down on cereal. That always seems like a big milestone to me.

He is just as long as Kate, but she still has 1.5 lbs on him.

Oh my goodness, he does look BIG! Adorable!

Amazing how the time flies! I feel the same way about the bittersweetness of your babies growing up!
