|Luke loves it when Davis sings to him (Davis makes up new songs to sing to Luke every day!)|
Well... Luke is two weeks old now, and what a wild two weeks they've been! His long hospital stay and many follow-ups kept us super busy -- and with our older kids involved in a million other activities it has made life a little bit crazy! I have a feeling it is not going to slow down...
Here is the 2-week update on the little guy:
2-week weight: 8 lbs 9 ounces (he is a good little eater!)
2-week height: 20 inches (I think this is shorter than he really is -- the nurse wasn't the best at measuring and he was wiggling around!)
Bilirubin tests OK and now he's been immunized and circumsized. Yikes! Poor little Luke.
|Someone doesn't like his first bath...|
|He doesn't scream much, but when he does scream it is VERY LOUD!|
Saturday was a blast for the kids, because Dad was home and - amazingly - there were only three things on the schedule for the day. So, after basketball, cleaning the office, and helping with an Elder's Quorum move -- Dad was all theirs. They went sledding for a few hours and then proceeded to build our entire family out of snow! I can't believe our first (and possibly only) snowmen this year were built in March. That's crazy Utah weather for you, I guess...
|Davis was a PRO at making the big snowballs. He did this all by himself. Seriously!|
|Macie made her snowman snowballs using her hats as gloves|
|Reid decorated his snowman with a carrot... doesn't it look just like him?|
|The cute snowman family is finished!|
DANCE, DANCE, DANCE
Of course, our life wouldn't have been the same if Macie and Reid hadn't been busy with dance competitions. Lots of them! Thanks to Grams for helping them get ready and for cheering loudly at their competitions! I'm happy to say that they both took first place in all of their dances (5 company dances, plus Macie's solo routine!) and Macie's company won first place in the overall category too!
|Reid rocks out to "Rio"|
|More of Reid's smooth moves|
|Macie shows off her stuff in "She's in Love" - This won the first place overall!|
|Reid rockin the coffee grinder in "It's a Small World"|
|Macie's solo routine -- I made most of this costume. NEVER AGAIN will I be sewing a feather costume. I hope. :)|
|Macie was awesome -- we were so proud of the way she nailed her solo!|
|The "Fly Right" beauty strikes her finishing pose!|
|Reid really performed well for the judges...Danny even overheard some spectators commenting on how great they thought Reid's dancing was!|
|Oh yeah, baby. Reid rocks!|
And, lastly, there was the Wasatch School Talent Show. I wasn't there, because I was at the hospital with baby Luke. And although Danny and Grams were there and whistling loudly for Macie and Reid, we didn't take any pictures or video because life was kind of crazy and we forgot. So, sadly, we have absolutely no video of Reid playing the piano (his favorite, "The Crawling Spider," a spooky song that he has memorized!). But Macie's teacher WAS on the ball and taped her solo routine and emailed me the link. So, for all your viewing pleasure, here is Macie performing "Fly Right" for the K-3rd grade talent show. Enjoy!
