Luke updates

We recently took Luke in for his one month check-up.
He weighed 9 lbs 14 oz. 50% of kids weigh less than him.
He was 22 3/4 inches long. 90% are shorter than him.
The circumference of his head was 15 inches 50% have bigger heads than him.

Here are some cute shirts I recently made. (Read: Ironed on fabric)

These girlie ones I gave as a baby shower gift. My boy can't wear Hello Kitty.

These are the ones that Luke is now sporting.

I know I need to post more pics of my baby.

Luke's Blessing and more

Don't wake the baby. This is my favorite picture of Luke so far.

We recently had Greg's parents come to visit. They had come to adore their first grandchild. It was really great to see them. We played games too.

Luke and Grandpa Mark.

A curious little guy.

All dressed up for his blessing.

So cute.

Three generations of Gessel men.

Our little family.

Wide awake to go to his first Sunday meeting.

Luke and Grandma Debbie. She would seriously hold him every moment she could. (Meanwhile I would sleep.)

Greg calming Luke.

Going on an evening walk.

We were very sad to see Greg's parents go. They were a great help and we had so much fun. Luke especially misses his morning walks with them.

First bath

We were very glad for all the help and support we got from Bonnie who has been living with us this summer. We didn't get a picture with her and Luke at the hospital, but she was his first aunt to hold him.

We gave Luke his first bath at home and decided we better take a photo.

Luke is very glad to have Grandma Debbie and Grandpa Mark visiting. He has loved being held constantly.

These are pictures that I took of Luke 2 minutes ago, asleep in his car seat. He is looking washed out because of the flash, but oh well.
