I don't have any pictures to post, but just wanted to post a quick update with Luke's stats from his well visit yesterday. He is 16 lbs, 12 oz and 26 1/4" long. Everything looks good and he got four shots, which he was not happy about! He recovered quickly and has been a very good boy since his appointment. The doctor says that from six months on getting up in the middle of the night is a learned behavior, not a necessary behavior, so when he woke up at 2 last night I tried to just rock him and not feed him. But, as soon as I laid him back down after a few minutes of rocking he starting crying and I had to fix him a bottle. I don't know how to get this boy off of his schedule! I'm starting to feed him much less when he wakes up. He used to get 5 oz bottles in the middle of the night, now I've cut it down to 3 oz, and will probably cut it down to 2 oz in another week or so. I'll just try to get him used to not having meals in the middle of the night. Hopefully in the next couple of months we'll both be sleeping through the night!
