Smiley Little Man

Lately little Lucas has learned to smile. Seeing that is one of those moments that makes it all worth it. He started smiling the week before last, so at around 6 weeks. The first ones were kind of fleeting, but now he can sustain several broad grins each morning, and is working on some sounds that approximate laughing. Today is his 8 week birthday and Renee’s 32nd. He’s up to almost 13 lbs.

He’s also learning how to put things in his mouth. It began with his hand, but has now moved on to include the toys dangling from his playgym, Renee’s hair, and, well, pretty much anything he can get into his mouth. Thankfully, at this point, that’s a short list, but I’m sure it will grow all too quickly.

BTW, if you’re wondering what happened to the Lucas set on Flickr, I accidentally deleted it. Once I realized my dumb mistake I recreated it, but the link will be slightly different. The new one is at here.



  1. How sweet! Congratulations!

  2. Hit my link and you will see a new photo of Akina at the beginning…..
