Jeremy and Hannah came to sort of visit. Really Jeremy was en route to Dana's to build a deer stand. Kyle went with them to help. They stayed at our house the night before and got to meet Luke the next morning. Dana came back with them, but timing didn't work out for them to see Luke on their way back through. Luke didn't cry when Hannah held him. I think he found a new friend.
Kyle went skiing. This was Kyle's first time away from Luke. Kyle turned 30 this month so for his milestone birthday, I suprised him with a ski trip to New Mexico with 3 of his friends from OKC. They had big fun. They all few out Wednesday morning...very early. Our friend Shanna was kind enough to pick Kyle up so I didn't have to take him to the airport. Then they skied Thursday, Friday and Saturday and flew home Sunday. Kyle was waiting for us when Luke and I got home from Ponca City. Kyle missed us both, but I think he missed Luke more. He said he could tell he'd grown just in the few days he was gone.
Kyle turned 30! I had it all planned out how I was going to tell Kyle, then one week before the big reveal I spilled the beans and ruined my wonderful suprise. I was SO mad. Anyway, the cake I was going to make for the Big Reveal, I made on his birthday instead. It's a mountain with snow on it, if you can't tell. To make the mountain, all you do is purposefully not grease the bundt cake pan and it falls right out! Now that's MY style of cake decorating!!!
Luke gets new tricks! Luke has two new skills in his bag of tricks. The first is a mouth trick...like most of his! He likes to suck on his bottom lip. It's really pretty cute and we got several good pictures of it. He also can now get up on his knees and elbows and get his whole tummy off of the ground. He did it several times in a row yesterday and hasnt' repeated himself again. Who knows!?! This might be like rolling over and we won't see it again for a month or two.
Luke goes to the park! We went for the first time today. My friend Shea Mathis was in town (they moved to San Antonio) and we hadn't seen each other since before she had her baby girl Caris (8 months) and so of course she had never met Luke either. So anyway, I met up with her and our friend Natalie who is due with her baby boy, Kenron, April 29th. I took Luke down the slide. He wasn't impressed. He wasn't scared either, so I guess that's something. No pictures of today either.
No more 10:30 feeding! Luke has been sleeping through the night since before 3 months of age. He would fall asleep between 7 and 7:30, and then I'd wake him up and feed him at 8, he'd fall asleep immediately, then I'd get him up and feed him again at 10:30 and he'd go right back to sleep and sleep until 7:30-ish the next morning. Since the time change, I've been feeding him between 7:30 and 8 and putting him down asleep and waking him at 10:30 for his last feeding before morning. I've known for quite some time that the 10:30 feeding could go, and that he could physically go from 8 to 8 without eating, however, he was sleeping throught the night and what I was doing was working and I DID NOT WANT TO MESS IT UP! So I've just kept the 10:30 feeding. I recently decided it was time to get tough and cut it out and so, last night we did for the first time. Mostly I was nervous that he'd get up earlier in the morning and I like my 7:30-8:00 wake up time. So I fed him last night at 8, he went right to sleep and didn't get up until 7:30 this morning! Success! Hopefully we'll keep this up.
