Yummy foods

It has been only recently that Luke started enjoying baby foods. There hasn't been a food that I gave him that he didn't like! I think his favorite is green beans. He enjoys that more than any fruit! I guess you must develop taste buds for the sweeter, fattier foods later on in life!

I started Luke out really slow on new foods because of his allergies. I would try only one new food for 3 or more days straight. He didn't react to any new foods! Little did I know that he wouldn't react because he has been on steriods for his asthma ever since we started all these new foods! Now that he is off of the oral steriods, look out rashes!

Luke started babbling this past Saturday and hasn't stopped since! Everything is dada. His daddy is dada, I am dada, Samson is dada, the tv is dada, etc. He screams dada from his crib in the morning and babbles dada as he falls to sleep. I am still trying to teach him mama. =) I am sure that will come, but for right now he loves dada!

One Very Long Week

On Saturday night, right after the heartbreaking loss the Steeler's had, we heard Luke coughing. John and I went in to check on him and we noticed he was having trouble breathing. We rushed him to the ER. They gave him a breathing treatment and diagnosed him with croop. 4 hours later we were at home. On Wednesday, I noticed Luke was getting worse. He was pulling at his ears and having more trouble breathing. I took him in to his doctor and right away she heard his fast breathing and sent us to the ER. After many breathing treatments, steroids, and being transported in an ambulance to the ICU unit at another hospital Luke's breathing finally settled. He stayed the night. He was diagnosed with RSV and pneumonia. We were able to take him home Thursday night. He is receiving breathing treatments, steroids, and antibiotics at home. We are happy to say that he is feeling better. He is starting to act like his old jolly self again. We praise God and thank everyone for their help and prayers!

Christmas Part 2

We celebrated Christmas with John's family the Sunday after Chrismas. We also celebrated Cailin's 5th birthday! Heidi made one of her famous cakes. We are very fortunate to be able to celebrate Christmas with both of our families!
