Today, finally, at 7 weeks and 2 days old, Luke lost his cord! Hooray! I was so worried about what they might have to do at his 2 month check up if it was still there. Allen was telling a coworker or someone that Luke still had his cord and she said her baby had a hard time getting rid of his, too. Her pediatrician told her to literally pour alcohol into the baby's belly button to really make sure it was getting dried out. So I tried that over the last couple days versus just cleaning it with a q-tip like I have been doing a few times a day. And today out it came!

Check out this sweet, cord-free belly!

This picture has nothing to do with the above topic, but I thought it was cute. He looks like he's showing Daddy (who was holding him in this pic) that he will soon be ready to join him weightlifting at the gym!
