A month has gone by so fast. You started out life so calm, easy, and quiet that your daddy and I were worried about you. We could sit you down and you didn't scream. You went to sleep easily at night and slept really good. The crazy noise of our home did not bother you in the least. It was so strange. By week three though you've come out of your little bubble a bit. You protest plenty now and aren't quiet so easy to go to sleep. You still are a wonderful baby though. You love to sit in Keely and Milo's beanbag chairs and doze. You aren't moving around much so you're pretty safe there. You love to be carried around and look around our house.
You've entered the moaning and grunting stage. You have periods throughout the day when you sound like a revving engine and at about 4 am you start it for a few hours too. Thankfully, it doesn't seem to wake anyone else up but me. You sleep right next to me all night. You like to be swaddled snugly for the first part of the night when you sleep for a good stretch of time. Sometimes you like a pacifier and other times you act like it is gagging you and that it's down right horrible.
We haven't had too many visitors or gone out into the world much. We've tried to keep your exposure limited since there was some crazy flu going around. You seem healthy and look like you are getting a little chunkier. You are a wonderful eater. I am thankful for that. Your ears are still curled up a bit and you've started to loose some of your hair. Your eyes are bigger, brighter, and more blue each day. You are a pretty little guy.
Milo and Keely adore you. They smother you with love and kisses and always want to hold you. They laugh at all the funny sounds you make. You are starting to sort of smile and that makes us all melt. When I look at you and say, "Hi baby!" my eyebrows go up so now whenever you look at me you raise your eyebrows. It is how you say, "hi" to me I guess.
I have not been brave enough to take all three of you anywhere on my own yet. It is such a chore to just get us all out the door and strapped into the car. We practice divide and conquer right now. Having all three babes at home all week is quiet a task in itself. It is sometimes pure madness and I feel bad for your little newborn self. You don't get the calm and quiet that I want for you. We also don't get very much time alone to get to know each other. I feel like I hardly get to talk to just you and soak up all your baby goodness because I'm so busy tending to the other two. I hope you feel loved and are getting all that you need. I love you little Lucas and everyone in our home wants to be with you. You have so many people to love you. I guess that makes you pretty lucky.
