Mr. Luke- 4 months

I can't believe Lukey is 4 months old already (a week ago)!!

We went to the doctor last week, and as Eli (still) likes to say, "Luke a big boy!" He is weighing in at 16 lbs 5 oz (71st percentile) and is 27 inches long (97th percentile). He has to wear 9 month PJs since his body is so long. He's still wearing 3-6 month pants though, he's got short little legs! He is getting up 2X per night to eat, which is wayyyyy better than before, so at this point I'll take it!!

Fourth month likes:
Still LOVES bath time! He can be so cranky and as soon as we walk in to the bathroom he's all smiles.
He's a bad little gangster!

Chatting with Baxter. Or Will. Or Me. Just chatting in general!

Tummy time. It's pretty much his favorite!

Fourth month dislikes:
He freaking hates naps more than anything in the world. As soon as we walk towards his bedroom, he is instantly mad and starts to cry. It is getting exhausting trying to get him to go down.
The big lip comes out anytime he has to go for a nap
Conversely, he LOVES waking up from his nap! He's always full of big (or silly) smiles!

Fourth month highlights:
First Christmas tree

First walk in the sling

Happy 4 months Lukey! We love having you in our lives, I think we'll keep you :)

Weekend Recap

This weekend was so excellent! Will is finally home from work until after Christmas, WOOHOO!
My crabby boys!
Taking selfies, waiting for dad to come home

We went over to my brother's for pizza and some cousin hang time on Friday night.
Luke can't believe how much further Brooke can lift her head off of the ground!

Saturday morning was spent throwing out our Christmas tree- it was deader than dead! That's what we get for buying one instead of going out to get our own. We got the new one set up, it's not nearly as nice but at least I don't worry about it burning the house down anymore :)

I also did lots of baking and house cleaning in preparation for our annual Christmas party! This year we decided to do a murder mystery, and it was so much fun!! We had a great turnout. Luke went to his papa's house for a couple of hours, it was nice to not have to worry about keeping the volume down for him.

Will and I joked that we are getting old, I'm pretty sure at our first party 8 years ago we were kicking people out at 3 am. This year, everyone was gone by 10:45. Whomp whomp.
Throwback to our first Christmas party... I am wearing clothing!
Sunday was a nice lazy day, we stayed in our PJs just hung out and played with Luke... It's my new favorite kind of day!
I feel like he just needs a cigar and a glass of scotch to complete this picture!
Hope everyone had a great weekend!!

Canadian Blogger Christmas Swap

This year I was partnered with Amie at Running On Healthy for the Christmas ornament swap! I was excited about the pairing since her blog has been on my reader for quite a long time. Aime is a Beachbody coach (check out her awesome Facebook page here), spin and yoga instructor, and basically a fitness lady extraordinaire! I love the motivation that I get from her blog, definitely one of my favorites :)

My package was filled with all sorts of awesome goodies!! There was a Starbucks gift card (which I used yesterday to enjoy an eggnog latte!), a David's Tea ornament filled with some delicious smelling tea that I am saving to enjoy on Christmas morning, and some Epicure Seasoning for BBQ ribs that
I am SO excited to try!
My ornament was the cutest little minion! My nephew Eli is obsessed with minions- he was even one for Halloween, so every time he comes over he searches the tree and says "Eli (he talks only in 3rd person) find minion in auntie's tree!". It's pretty cute.

The minion hiding in the tree ;)

Thanks so much for a great Christmas package Amie!!

Lately we have been busy!!

Will has been working away a lot, but was home for 4 days last week so that was awesome! He and Luke had lots of very in depth conversations.

He also built a mantle for our fireplace while he was home, I love how he can just come up with an idea and make it look awesome!

We got some pretty awesome texts from my sister, including some video of her taking steps (with lots and lots of assistance, but still so awesome!!) She is at the brain rehab center in Kelowna right now and making excellent progress, I'm so proud of her!
Picture we sent her after she sent us the walking video
Luke has officially started teething and is chewing on everything in sight!!

We have been hanging out with Eli and Brooke lots

And getting ready for Christmas!
Christmas trees and Christmas sweaters are the best!!

I went to a cookie swap last week, which also helped with getting into the (delicious) holiday spirit!

I traded these...

....for all these delights!
I'm looking forward to having Will being off work for a couple weeks, having my sister home for a 3 days at Christmas, and experiencing Luke's first Christmas! It's going to be an awesome month :)
