The last 3 pics were taken by my good friend Myrna. They are amazing.
Since June my life has changed so much, i've cried more tears and smiled more then my previous 30 yrs all put together. I can't even begin to describe how I feel. It's just amazing. Every day I see changes in him...he smiles, laughs, coo's, sucks his thumb, looks at me with the most adorable look on his face. He's just precious. I'm already dreading having to leave him after my year is up. :(
I went into labour around 12:30 sunday morning (June 1st), went to the hospital here in NP and then they sent me along to CB because YUP I was indeed in labour. So we came back home to get Laverne (Chris's mom) and Michelle (good friend of ours) since they were going to be there with us for the delivery...and off we go to CB. After 20 hrs. of pain the baby just doesn't want to come down so off for a section I go, much to my dismay. But even with everything I went through I wouldn't take it back for a minute. We were in the hospital for 5 days and finally let out on the following Friday.The first night we got home I thought we were gonna crack up, I think with the lack of sleep at the hospital and the stress of having a newborn who was constantly crying even after being fed, changed & cuddled...it finally took it's toll. So at 2:30 I gave in and called my sister Tracey. She immediately took charge and ordered us to bed. She stayed with us the second night too.
Thank you so much sis, I don't know what we would of done without you.
So it has now been 8 weeks since we had Lucas and although I still feel like i'm cracking up some days...it's getting alot easier. I'm still yet to figure out what the "cries" mean, how to get him to sleep better at night, what i'm eating that's making him so gassy, and whether to do housework or nap while he's napping. Anyone have answers to those questions...feel free to give me some advice. Well gotta run, i'll try and keep posting.
