Luca had his one month appointment today (although he is now 5 weeks and 3 days old) and he is doing great from a growth standpoint. This little chunkier is 9 lbs and 15 oz and is 22 inches long. Even though breastfeeding is still a challenge, it seems like Luca is getting what he needs and he is growing like a champ!
We went to the cottage this past weekend and it was a bit better than the first time - he slept a little and I was able to sneak in a few naps AND I finally was able to dye my hair.
On the topic of sleeping - Luca is not that great at it to be honest. Poor little guy. Sometimes I think he must be so tired because he isn't getting as much sleep as the books say he should (i.e. most say 16 hours a day and some days he only gets 3 or so during the day and 6 at night (and not all at once!). But we soothe, we swaddle, we feed and feed and feed and the poor guy just won't stop crying and sleep. However, just when I'm ready to lose it, he usually has a decent night and then I feel human again.
This is what Luca looks like when he is SO exhausted that he finally goes down:
We watched J try wake boarding for the first time:
And all in all had a good weekend. Until we hit traffic on the way home. Am I the only one who dreads stopping in a car because then the baby starts screaming? Stop and go traffic is the worst!
Anyways - I'm crossing my fingers for a good night tonight because a) I'm tired and b) we have a packed schedule tomorrow :-) Wish us luck!
