Luke: 6 Months & 7 Months


Luke is 6 months old! We’ve spent the past month splitting our time between California and Utah.  We had an amazing time visiting with them and hope to be back soon.  I can’t believe it’s already February.  I really just haven’t been able grasp the concept of time lately…I can’t believe it’s been 6 months since I had Luke.  “Luke” means “light giving” and he does exactly that! He is such a light in our home and he has such a sweet and tender spirit about him.  We are so lucky that he joined our family.

At 6 months, Luke

  • Can scoot short distances
  • Is always on his hands and knees
  • Sleeps on his tummy with his bum in the air
  • Can roll back to tummy and tummy to back
  • Has 2 teeth!
  • Just started trying solid food
  • Still wakes up 3-4 times a night
  • Will drink from a bottle
  • Tries to sit up on his own
  • Can scoot in a circle

We have a tall, thin, baby in our hands. Luke is 28″ Long (92%), 15.4 lbs (11%) and his head measures 43 cm (89%). I have been so nervous that Luke hasn’t been getting enough to eat. Chad was formula fed & ate solid food by this time and Luke is just now starting to drink formula and be introduced to solid foods (it’s hard not to compare your kids when you just don’t know what to expect and you don’t know any different!). But he’s obviously growing tall and gaining a little bit of weight every few months. He definitely has Kurt’s build. I’m so grateful that he is healthy!
