Luke & Marcus Happenings

First I'll update you on Luke...He had his 4 month appointment a week and a half ago and his stats are: 12lbs and 23 inches long.  He's growing like a weed and has cute chubby cheeks and rolls on his legs to boot.  He doesn't look like a typical 4 month old but doesn't look like a preemie either.  I would say he looks like a healthy 3 month old.  The doc was really impressed with his growth and thinks that he may catch up to what he should be at sooner than most preemies.  He's smiling quite often now and even some cooing and some giggles here and there.  He 's getting more on a schedule and is having less cranky time and more having fun time. 

We were able bless Luke last Sunday in Sterling CO and we had alot of our family attend.  I was pretty nervous that he would cry the whole time but he cried just a could've been much worse believe me.  We had a wonderful lunch and it was great to see family and friends in sterling.  Thanks to all those who came to celebrate our special little guy.

Marcus has been on the go all summer long.  He's gotten to see family a ton this summer which I'm super happy about.  On the 4th of July we went down to Alamosa to stay with my family and help celebrate my mom's big birthday.  On the way we stayed in Longmont and Marcus had so much fun with one of his favorite cousins, Lil Aaron. Marcus then stayed all that next week with the grandparents in Alamosa and had a good time swimming, seeing alligators and getting grandpa & grandma tired. 

Marcus is such a sweet boy but has definitely gotten into being a typical 2 year old.  He has an opinion about everything and "gets" to go into time out almost everyday and he is getting pretty good and being whinny too.  He still our little athlete and loves playing almost any sport.  His vocabulary is expanding and getting some attitude to go with it!

I don't have any updated pics but believe me they both look like Aaron and I think that Luke will even have his daddy's blue eyes.  Everyone says that Luke looks just like Aaron did and like Marcus too.. so he's bound to be a cutie like his daddy and brother.

We sure do love our boys and thank our Heavenly Father for our two beautiful boys who are healthy and relatively happy.

We gotta see some pics of your boys (even though we know they are mini Aarons)!! Sounds like your summer is busy and your having fun!

Glad to hear things are going so well. I can't help but laugh about Marcus' time outs and attitudes. It's just something about having a sibling. All of a sudden they take a turn for the worst. Although I'd take a 2 year old tantruming over a newborn any day.

Exciting to hear Luke is gaining so much weight. Owen our oldest was only 17 lbs. at 1 year old. At 3 1/2 he was just weighed and only weighs 32 lbs.

Hope all is well. I love reading your updates on your blog.

Lots of love,
