The way I would describe these last two weeks is good.
I feel GOOD. I was so worried while pregnant that I would have the baby blues really bad like I did with Nicolas but they are no where in sight. And that is a relief. Yes, I'm tired, sleep deprived, boobs are sore, I'm still healing, but I feel NORMAL. I'm happy, I enjoy the time with Lucas in the day time, I enjoy my time with Nicolas in the afternoons, and Leo and I hang out until about 10pm and talk about our day.
But enough about me. Here is the run down on the boys.
In the first few days he went from 6lbs 3oz to a low of 5lbs 12oz. But today at his 2 week appointment he gained all his birth weight and weighed 6 lbs 12.4oz! Nicolas weighed 6lbs 13oz at birth! So Leo and I have realized we make small and hairy babies, LOL. Lucas has already lost his belly button stump. He lost it at about 9 days but it is still a little gunky so we are still doing sponge baths.
At 3 days old my little guy was diagnosed with a milk intolerance so that meant that means I have to cut out all dairy from my diet and baked dairy if it is in the top 5 ingredients. I was pretty upset but after two weeks, I've realized it is not as hard and I can deal for at most a year.
Lucas and I spend the day together and are getting into a loose routine. Lucas is a pretty chill baby. He sleeps a lot in the daytime, only cries when he is hungry or tired, and eats every 2-3 hours in the daytime and nighttime.
At around 4pm we go pick up Nicolas from school and we all hang out until Leo gets home at around 7:30pm. Nicolas is starting to warm up to the baby. He is very proud of his little brother and shows him off to his friends at school. He will ask to hold him and today he even asked if he could burp him. He sang a burp song he learned from the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. It was so cute. Here is the video.
and here are some pics from the last two weeks.
He makes these cute facial expressions and I think he is smiling but I think it is a little early. But I'll take them. Love his cute face.
Sweet sleepy face
