Luke's Check-up and Recent Milestones

So Luke had his 6 1/2 month check up this past Friday. He's healthy as an ox and learning new things every day. His stats:
17 lbs 10 1/2 oz. = 42nd percentile
28.5 inches long = 97th percentile
He's certainly a big one! In the middle of January I decided it was time to start rice cereal and boy did he LOVE it! A few days later we were on to baby food. He loves to eat and gets SO excited every time he sees me get out something for myself to eat. Its amazing to me how quickly he related his seeing the bowl and spoon for rice cereal and baby food and how he now relates that to food and eating! Babies learn so quickly its amazing!

Another thing Lukas did a few days ago was roll over completely by himself from his back to his tummy and then some! He has never done that before and hasn't done it since this one time. I was so glad I had the camera close by cause he only did it like 4 times in a 5 minute period. And boy did I have to show Matt what his little guy accomplished!

One more thing that Lukas did this past week (whether on purpose or not) was sign daddy all by himself for the first time. We had a couple over for dinner on Friday night and Matt was trying to get Lukas to show off by signing "daddy" in American Sign Language and he did it all by himself (granted his fist was closed instead of open)! It was cool. I'm pretty sure it was a fluke but Matt insists he did it on purpose. haha. What a proud dad!

(this one is just cute cause for no reason he just got SO excited, as you can tell)

I have been missing that face! He has changed SO much!! You'll have to clue me in on the photoshop and where you got your tutorials, I've found some on YouTube, but nothing showed me that. HELP!!

He's sooo happy!!...and aboslutely adorable!! Dang girl, you make cute babies!

He did to sign "Dad". Don't let Nicole fool you. She just wants to say Luke signed "Mom" first. But we all know the truth here. Luke loves his dad!

I had a feeling he would love his food. I love his first hair cut pics. I love that kid.

I am so jealous that your little guy has so much hair that he needed a hair cut. Kaylee's is just all over the place. So where in Provo do you guys live?

What a handsome little boy! I was thinking about it, and I think the last time I saw you was at a YSA dance back in 2004! Hello four years later! It looks like your little family is thriving! We are doing baby sign language with Mari, and it's really helped to take away some frustration. She knows food, more, all done, help, and we are working on thank-you and drink. I can't wait to see more pics of that beautiful baby boy of yours!

He is darling! Bryant said he got to see you guys a little while ago at the volleyball game. He said he was big, but I didn't realize just how big he's gotten. So fun! We need to see you guys soon.
