Luke Alexander! :)



003_zps41c94bdf.jpg(Yes, yes, the loose blankets... I know. He's in the pack n play right next to me and I put it over him to keep the cool air from the AC off of him. The one under him is what I would normally swaddle him with...)



Anyway, he's such a champ at breastfeeding! It feels so much easier this time than with my first son. I'm not sure whether it's because I was 17 and overwhelmed with having a new baby and it made breastfeeding seem that much more difficult... Or because although I wasn't diagnosed (never told the doctor about it), I really do believe that I had PPD and for the longest time, it just seemed so, so hard to do even the simple tasks that come along with having an infant, such as changing diapers or bathing baby. I don't feel overwhelmed at all this time and honestly, since he's been home, it's been a constant feeling of elation. I hope it stays this way... I love my older son and did when he was an infant as well, more than anything, but how I felt after having him really, really sucked and it seemed to last for a really long time. I could have been a better mom to him earlier on had I gotten help, I believe.



Oh, and Mr. Luke rolled from back to belly at 5 days old! :)



Here is big brother, Kaden and I! He's such a big boy now! And very smart as well! He can almost legibly write his name... knows all of his shapes, colors, can count to 20, knows certain ABCs, but mostly the ones in his name. Oh, and he's pretty darn sweet too. He will be 4 in September. <3

Such cute boys! I love his name too. My son's name is Alexander, but we almost named him Lucas. :)
