A month with Lucas here

It's been almost a month since I have posted... It's not like I haven't been busy I guess! :o) These last 4 weeks have been great! I think my favorite thing about being a family of four is being able to say "the kids". That just warms my heart! There have been so many times that I feel like I could cry because the joy is so overwhelming! "My cup runeth over" The Lords blessings are so rich!


As you can see... Our little Ford Focus is quite cozy with both car seats in the back.

When Lucas is fussing Ella always thinks he would want his paci... Because she would of course! :o) She is almost always gentle with him.
Yesterday I heard her talking about our family (making up some sort of story in her imagination I'm sure), "Daddy, Mommy, Ella... then a pause... and Baby Lucas. I was touched that she really thinks of him as a part of our family! She has accepted him, and the amount of attention he requires, so well!
Lucas is such a good baby! He typical feeds every 3 hours and has been sleeping for 4 hours at the beginning of the night. During the day he is either sleeping or pretty much content to sit and observe! He fusses only when in need of something! I am grateful that he doesn't require so much attention that I would feel I am neglecting Ella in some way. I still have special times with her often through out the day as well as time to sit and love on him too!

I have taken Lucas' first "growing up" picture with the same bear that I took the pictures of Ella with! I think each month I will also take one with Ella in it with him!

On May 29th Lucas had his first check up. At 3 weeks he was already 8 pounds, 5 ounces! He sure is a growing boy!
On Memorial Day we spent some time by the pool at my parents house ... Doesn't Lucas look cute showing off his muscles in his little beach shorts! Ella doesn't ask to hold Lucas often but she takes really good care of him when she does hold him.

In this picture, Brian was doing push ups so Ella wanted to ride! :o)

There is more to come... This weekend Brian is taking us on a mini family vacation! We are going about an hour north to Hutchinson Island to stay at a hotel on the beach! I'm super excited!
