Lucan

I missed posting on Lucan's 2-month birthday, so I'll try to make up for it here. He was 12 pounds, 6 ounces, and 23 inches long. Definitely no weight worries now! It seems so long ago that we were taking him back to be checked after he had lost so much weight after the first several days. He's growing fast and showing his personality, which so far seems to be similar to Arden's. (Whew! I don't know if our family can handle another Kenna or Tobin, as much as we love and adore them!!)

Lucan loves to be cuddled and enjoys being close to me when I'm wearing the baby sling. He's mostly a happy, content baby; the reflux issues seem to be abating, thank the Lord. I still have to be careful not to eat spicy or garlicky foods, though. His nighttime sleep patterns could be better, but every now and then he does pretty well. For instance, last night I nursed him at 8:45 and we all went to bed right afterward. He woke around 11:30, but Ted put his pacifier back in his mouth and he went back to sleep. He didn't wake again until 3:20, at which point I got up to nurse him, discovered I was completely soaked on one side, and just stayed up for the day. Six hours of sleep is more than I typically get anyway!!

Lucan enjoys watching ceiling fans, batting at his toys, and being adored by his older siblings. He mostly has a serious look on his face, but when you're close to him, talking and smiling, he grins right back. He's a squishable, huggable, adorable little guy, and we're so glad he's part of our family!

Two months old...this cute outfit is from Joel & Sarah.


At Red Rock Canyon...believe it or not, he was smiling here!


Smiling at the EAGLES picnic--Heather and Julie helped make him smile so I could get a picture!

He's very cute! I hope he's a mellow "big kid" for you. :-)
