Lucas is growing and changing so quickly. Hard to believe he will be 3 weeks tomorrow. Friday after meeting Kevin for lunch I took Lucas to the PCC to meet some of my coworkers and to have him weighed. According to their scales Lucas is already a whopping 9lbs 10oz!!! He sure likes to eat. He hasn't been sleeping as long at night (likes to wake-up every couple of hours to...EAT), but he is still very calm. Nolan seems to still be doing well with the transition. We have been having some issues with Nolan's sleep with him not wanting to go to bed without us staying with him, waking up at least once in the middle of the night, and he is waking up earlier and earlier. Hopefully this will resolve quickly! :) Nolan continues to be very sweet with Lucas and gets really excited when Lucas is awake and appears to be looking at him. Nolan is a great big brother.
Kevin is now back to work at both jobs. I have had two nights at home alone with the boys this week while Kevin was at private practice and we all survived. Lucas and I also survived our first two days home by ourselves this past week. I have been able to get naps in while he sleeps and have also been able to stay up on some chores. I told Kevin that our house will actually be clean with two kids....until I go back to work.
We have a busy couple of weeks ahead of us with Kevin's sister and her husband from Colorado coming to visit on Wednesdays through Sunday. Kevin's mom, younger sister, and dad will also be around for parts of that time as well. Then the following week we will be taking our first trip as a family of 4 up to Camp Amigo for the Gingrich Family Reunion, also known as the GGG (Great Gingrich Gathering). Our last GGG was in 2004. We are looking forward to seeing family, introducing Nolan and Lucas to more of the family, and meeting all of the other babies that have been born over the last several years.
I would like to end this post with some pictures that Kevin took of Lucas this week.
