Baby Lucas is 2 months old!

Lucas is 2 months!! The last 3+ weeks have been crazy.  Thank God for my mom being here to help with the boys and the house.  She has been a life saver.

A Lucas update:

Weight: 10.2 lbs
Length: 21.25 inches

Started cooing at about 6.5-7 weeks.  Started socially smiling at about 4-5 weeks. He is a happy and easy going baby.  He still has very short awake periods but lately they are getting longer and more frequent.

I am really enjoying the baby stage and hate it that I'm missing so much of it because I started working already.

Nicolas is the sweetest big brother and really loves his baby brother.  So much to catch up but no time.  So for now I'll just leave you with a few pics.   

I love my boys!

The happiest baby boy!

Until next time!

1 month down!

Look who survived the first month of being a mother of two!!  The nights are long and lack of sleep is a b!*%$ but I feel happy and look forward to the day with Lucas and Nicolas.  The baby blues skipped me this time around and I'm so grateful.  Last time I did not enjoy the newborn stage and felt very overwhelmed by motherhood.  This time my house is a mess, but I feel happy and enjoy being a mother of two. 

Lucas stats for the 1st month:
Weight @ 1 month: 8lbs 2.8oz 
1st bottle at 4 weeks.  Chugged it down with no problem!
Starting smiling at about 3.5 weeks
A little bit of cooing at 4.5 weeks
Still sleeps a lot but cat naps not long naps
Doesn't really like tummy time but we are working on it so his neck gets stronger.
Lucas and I venture out often and he is an angel while out.

Originally I was going to take 12 weeks of maternity leave but a NEW JOB (woohoo!!) has cut that short.  So I will be returning to work July 9th.  Lucas will only be 5 weeks 5 days but he is being taken care of by the best nanny, my mom!

I know life is only going to get crazier when I start working but I'm really excited about the new job!

Here are my favorite pics of the last month.
