I was soooo glad to have this weekend off after working 11 days straight! I had to whine about is as I know that a) I'm lucky to have a job and b) lots of people have much harder jobs and work more hours than I do, but it really did wear me out to have to work that many days in a row. Anyway, it was great to be off both yesterday and today. I got to really enjoy my time with the boys and especially Luke, who turned 5 months old just yesterday.
Where has the time gone? He has gotten so big and is so alert, it's amazing! We are taking him to the dr for his first round of shots later this week so I'll be able to note his current weight. At this point I would guess he's getting close to 20 lbs. He wears at LEAST 6-9 months clothes, but is actually also wearing some 12 months clothes. He started rolling over last week and can go from his tummy to his back and also his back to his tummy. He loves his solids, which we started about a month ago. He's got quite the head of hair on him (more than any of his brothers had at this age) and his eyebrows are especially thick and full of expression. He is adored by all of us, especially his three older brothers.
We were visited by friends from the Chicago area today and it was so nice to see them. My boys are so excited to have company over. They were thrilled to see their 2 year old, Jackson, and quickly indoctrinated him into their world of rough-and-tumble play. Poor little guy seemed afraid at first, but quickly got the hang of it and began weilding one of their swords in an effort to keep up with them. We look forward to spending a lot more time with Jackson and his mom and dad in the near future!
Hope everyone out there had a great weekend!
