We got this new toy in the mail from 2 of my aunts. We set it up immediately and Lucas was just mesmerized for so long. He loves it. It was so fun to watch him look at the toys and coo at them.
Watch this short video to hear him and see him kick his legs at this:

Weight: 9 lbs 10 oz He is in the 9%. He gained about 2 pounds since his last appointment on November 4.
Height: 22.8 in He is in the 43%. He has grown 3 inches since his 2 week check up.
Head Circumference: 15 in He is in the 13%.
The doctor said that he is doing great. He had to get an oral vaccine which he took very easily and then he had 3 shots. It was so sad! He was so sad. He was hungry too so I fed him and got to soothe him. He quickly forgot.
We went to the mall to do some Christmas shopping and he got to sit on Santa's lap. Santa kept saying "Thank you for letting me hold this precious baby." He also said that he was straight from heaven. I didn't disagree and told him that he was our miracle baby.
Lucas wore his cute Christmas jammies!
On Sunday, December 12, we took Lucas to our church and Ryan was able to give him a name and a blessing. We took lots of pictures with lots of our family.
Ryan's parents and Lucas
My parents and Lucas3 of my sisters, me, and Lucas (sorry Nicole, you were already gone). 5 of the 7 girls in my family were able to be there. We missed the other 2, but they are in Minnesota and Texas.
Officially a family of 3!

Lucas went to the doctor again a few days ago. He wanted Lucas to be weighed again and just make sure that he was gaining weight. This time he tipped the scales at 7 lbs 11 oz. He gained 20 oz in 10 days! The doctor said they like him to gain 1 oz per day, but 2 oz per day is even better! He is a great eater. Lucas is almost 2 lbs more than what he was at birth. His cheeks are getting more and more kissable.
He is sleeping really well at night. He usually goes for about 4-5 hours and then wakes up to eat and then will go right back to sleep. That makes Ryan and me so happy!
