Final Bump{less} Update

So this will be my final update in my pregnancy series and it makes me so sad.  I felt like I was pregnant for eternity so I don't remember what it's like not being pregnant.  I wrote my birth story here, and I have to admit that I was completely clueless when it came to pregnancy, labor, and, now, motherhood.  I had this naive image in my mind that my body and life would bounce back but truth is, it didn't.  I admittedly have a lot of baby weight to lose but I am in no hurry to lose it.  I'm exhausted, yes, but life feels richer.  I have daily hormonal breakdowns thinking about having to go back to work in two weeks and leaving Lucas at home.  I just love my boy so much.

Here are some facts about the new man in my life, Lucas Jose:

1. He has blue eyes and a lot of dark hair.  Such a stud muffin.
2. He hates being naked but loves taking baths.
3. He likes to shoot pee all over me when I change him.
4. He never had a problem with his latch, eating, etc - he's a piglet and he's a piglet because he snorts when he eats.
5. He smiles all the time.  It's adorable.
6. He loves being held and taking naps on people.
7. He looks just like my husband and nothing like me.  The nurses in the NICU said Lucas had a spunky personality so that must have come from me ;-)
8. He loves his mom the most and dad.

Finding Out 


  1. Such a sweet post! He is such a little cutie & I love all of his hair. Hormonal breakdowns are one of the toughest things about this whole process, that and learning how to function on 2 hours of sleep. Here's wishing you a smooth transition back to work!

  2. This is a very sweet post!!! Lucas is adorable and you look GREAT!!!!!!

  3. It must be tough thinking about leaving your baby, but soon you will learn how to balance work and being a mother.

  4. He is absolutely gorgeous!! Such beautiful photos of you both! Just found your blog, and I loved your pregnancy series..

  5. Aww your baby is adorable! We are naming our baby boy Lucas as well. Congratulations on your new bundle and I wish you the best. I can't wait to meet our little one as well!
