Luke, you will be five months old tomorrow. Your personality is really starting to come to life. You are talking all the time and love to hear your voice, especially when you yell! I think you are the cutest little guy around and love to see the new things you are learning to do and enjoy each day.
You are wearing 3-6 months clothes.
You are in size 2 pampers swaddlers.
You are still nursing, with the occasional bottle when we go out.
Your favorite thing to do is stand up holding Mommy or Daddy's hands.
You also love to chew on your hands and fingers.
You still sleep best when you are swaddled and have slept a few nights in your big crib. But, most of the time you still sleep in the pack-and-play in Mommy's room.
Nana bought you a mirror for the car and you seem to be liking your carseat better.
As you can see from most of the pictures, you are quite a serious little guy. You save your smiles for a very special occasion. You have started to laugh especially when we are putting on and taking off your clothes. You must be ticklish!
God knew exactly what he was doing when he created you
Precious Father, I pray that Luke would put his trust in you and never be shaken. That you would cause Luke to follow you, and make him a fisher of people. That you would show Luke how to use his gifts and talents wisely, being faithful with the abilities you have given him. Let him grow to serve others in love. Fill him with your Holy Spirit, so that he might bear the Spirit's fruits. Father, watch over Luke's life. Do not slumber or sleep, but keep him from harm. Place your hand upon Luke so that wherever he goes and whatever he does, he will be accompanied by your presence. Let Luke love his siblings and be devoted to them in brotherly love. Father, I pray that you would fulfill your purpose for Luke; do not abandon the works of your hands. Let Luke be glad for all you are planning for him. Let him be patient in trouble and come to you in prayer always.
Father, thank you for entrusting the awesome responsibility of raising Luke to love you and live his life according to your will to Brett and I. May we always come to you in prayer for him. I pray that we will be joyful in our parenting.
In the name of your son, Jesus
"Those who have been given a trust must prove faithful."
