4 Months Old

Today marks four months since our little Luke came into the world. I cannot believe how much our lives have changed since then. I cannot believe how much HE has changed since then. Each day he sees something new that triggers a smile, and his smiles melt my heart! Each day he gets a little better at holding his head up and grabbing onto his toys and pushing up on his legs. As he gets older, I am reminded daily that life is precious. I am so thankful that God has given Mike and I the responsibility of being Luke's parents. 
Yesterday we opened a couple boxes from the basement which held new toys for Luke. People would probably laugh at how excited Mike and I were to watch Luke enjoy these new things for the first time. Even with the torrents of rain coming down outside, there was such joy inside our house! This gave me a bit of a revelation. God takes the same delight in me that I find in my son. How simple a truth! How amazing is His love!

I just had to put this picture on here because it completely encapsulates my son! We had a long weekend with family, and it was wonderful. BUT it was also wonderful to be home. Luke just acts more like himself. His neck and back are getting stronger and stronger, so we've being trying out his Bumbo seat. He loves it! He reminds me of Mike in this picture because Mike SO loves to relax and that is just what Luke is doing! God has entrusted us with quite a little miracle:)
