Not so little Lucas...


Lucas is seven weeks old and a CHUNK! I absolutely love the little fat rolls that are forming on his soon to be thunder thighs. Ben calls the stage Lucas is in "the BLOB stage" and that kind of describes our little off spring; blobby. Those of you who are English, remember Mr. Blobby? Remember how his Christmas song got to number one! HA, Hilarious. Those of you who are wondering "who the heck is Mr. Blobby?" Wikipedia is here to inform you http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr_Blobby.

Anyway, back to my little Lucas or Gus as Ben calls him, he was AWESOME last night slept a total of seven and a half hours. I send the credit to his chunkiness and my power milk.

Lucas smiled and I got in on camera.

The other night after I had put Jack to bed I started to feed Lucas. Jack strolls down stairs and sees me. He declares, "so you got your boobs out again!" I said "yes dear, I do."

It's been seven weeks since I experienced pain beyond my wildest imagination and I know your wondering "would you do it again NATURAL?" And the answer is "YES!" Or at least I would try too. Not because it made me feel like wonder woman because it didn't but because of the amazing recovery. I really think my incredible recovery has a lot to do with the way I delivered and having two children doesn't give you time to recover slowly. Plus, it's SO much cheaper if you don't have an epidural. I'm cheap!

Having had a baby with and without an epidural both have their pros and cons. I think its great that we live in a time when there are options; how blessed we are.


And now enjoy the chunkiness...

What a gorgeous boy Jess! Samuel is fast becoming a chunky-monkey - it is amazing how he is growing and filling out much quicker than Olivia did as a baby. Lucas has such kissable lips! x
