Here are Luke's hospital pictures!
I am just in complete awe of this baby. He is absolutely beautiful. You would think after 9 kids, I wouldn't just want to sit and look at him all day, but I am completely smitten with him!
He seems to be adjusting to the hustle and bustle of our busy home, he is happy when he is being held, which right now is never an issue because the kids are still at the point where they are arguing over who gets to hold him more. I am sure it will wear off soon!
He tends to have a fussy period each day (or should I say night) where he just SCREAMS and FUSSES. He will try to nurse but he gets so upset that he ends up spitting up the milk, it is like his little belly is full but he still wants to suck and then the nursing just upsets the delicate balance. Unfortunately the fussing is occurring in the middle of the night....last night from about 11 AM to 1 AM, but then he finally fell asleep and slept until 6AM.....I know BAD MOMMY....letting a newborn sleep for 5 hours, but I was just exhausted and he doesn't seem any worse for the wear! The other nights it has been from like 3 AM to 6 AM
that he just fusses and screams. I can handle the 11 PM screaming much better. Hopefully this stage passes quickly!
I am healing well. The scar burns when I walk around too much or when I get up and down,but it is certainly managable with just ibuprofen! I even made Brett take us yardsaling this morning! I had convinced myself that Luke would be a girl, so I really had NO BOY stuff for a newborn. Well I completely lucked out at a yardsale up the road this morning. Everything the woman had for sale was brand name items.....Old Navy, Gap, Gymboree, Disney Store, Ralph Lauren...I even found a new Reebok outfit with tags still on it. I ended up with 10 outfits in 0-3 mo, 7 outfits in 3-6 mo, 1 summer outfit in 6-9 mo, and 3 fall outfits in 6-9 mo.....all for just $15! I was so thrilled!
