A weekly post to help us get to know some of our CafeMom cuties ...

Who: Luke Edward, 5 1/2 months old, son of amw529. He was born on June 3 and didn't want to come out. I was due May 26, but he decided to stay in there. I ended up having a C-section since even with inducing he didn't budge. The doctor made the cut and there he was looking up at them like, "Who, me?"

How long does he sleep at night?

He's been sleeping since mid-July through the night after his 10 p.m. bottle through to his 7:30 am bottle. Sometimes when I'm taking him to day care at 6:15 a.m., he'll wake up for a little while, but he usually falls back asleep in the car.

What makes him smile?

He is a giggler. He loves people and when he sees someone he knows he will smile and when he's in a very good mood he will giggle at you as well. He also loves to flirt with any female he encounters :)

What is his latest milestone?

He's just now been able to roll over from back to tummy and tummy to back.  Fortunately I was able to witness both of these, but he has done it at day care as well. He's also enjoying solids. We started our last vegetable, sweet potatoes, this week and now we covered all of them. We start fruits next!

What is his fussiest time of day?

I don't know that he fusses too much during the daytime. If he does not get his cereal and vegetable at 7 p.m., he cries! So I have to make it quickly!!

What will he do for a career?

He could be a salesperson since he loves people so much, but with his advancing height/weight (26 inches and 20 lbs) we're hoping for an athlete, especially since he'll be left handed!
