The Many Faces of Luke

Luke is 3 weeks and 1 day old today and I am amazed at how much personality he has already developed. We've had two great nights of sleep (10 pm feeding, 2 am feeding and 6 am feeding) which has been awesome... I never thought I'd be excited about getting 6 hours of sleep which I am going to credit partly to our amazing parenting skills :) and partly to an awesome DVD that one of Dave's co-workers let us borrow. It's called "The Happiest Baby on the Block" and it demonstrated these 5 techniques to calm a fussy baby (including swaddling as shown in the pics below) which actually work miraculously! Luke is not a particularly fussy baby, but when he decides to fuss he sure knows how to do it, and the DVD has helped tremendously!
I tried to snap some pictures last night and today and managed to get a couple of cute ones of him laying on his Jelly Cat mustang (I was able to get a couple before he spit up all over it!), some of him enjoying being swaddled after we watched "The Happiest Baby on the Block" and some of him just hanging out today (in which you'll get to see some of the many faces he's working on perfecting).

Really enjoying the soothing techniques we learned :)
I know his eyes look a little wierd... but it's the first time I've been able to get one of his "smiles" on camera :)
