It has been a while since I have posted anything. Sorry.
Luca picked out the bear himself while we were Christmas shopping. He pulled it off the shelf and started sucking on it, so he got a new toy that day! (The proceeds went to a children's charity, anyway, so all for a good cause)
Luca is 5 months old! He is rolling over both ways now (but he doesn't like to roll onto his back often, he prefers to cry and wait for someone to roll him over when he is bored). He is eating infant cereal two times a day and loving it- he sure does love to eat! But, we already knew that! :) He also loves to play with the face cloth afterwards, too.
He is still as smiley as always and is getting to be quite vocal, too. Laughing and experimenting with volume of voice are fun things to do these days! His hair is getting thicker and darker, so he is not totally bald anymore! :)
Luca has really begun to notice the dog. Whenever Hope is nearby, he stops what he is doing to watch her, smile and "talk" to her. She is so gentle with him when he "pets" her. She sits there patiently while I hold him and let him see her. She has also come to lay on the floor near him while he is playing.
Surgery is a distant memory. His incision has healed nicely (you can see it in the pictures). It seems like it was so long ago, but it was only about 3 weeks ago.
These are pics taken in the last week or so.
