So things are going really well over here at the Wakefield house. Little Lucas sleeps all night long. Well, at least I don't hear him if he is awake. (whoops) Everytime I check on him at night he is sleeping. Its pretty nice. Beacuse he has the g-tube, he gets constant feeds 24 hours a day, so there is no real hunger. That will soon change though. Today we had our swallow study and he passed with flying colors. They gave him a drink that they can see while they x-ray to make sure he doesn't aspirate any milk. Things looked good and so we get to start a few bottle feeds throughout the day.
Ok, so its been about 6 hours since I last wrote that and well, I have no idea where to pick up. Let me just say this. I love living here. I love that we have the best Dr's around. I love that Mount Rainier is the most magnificent sight, and I get to look at it almost daily. I love that when I drive to Seattle I get to see the most beautiful sky line and a gorgeous view of my mountain in my rear view mirror. That is what I thought about today on my drive.
I will post some more pictures tomorrow. Lucas had his first real bath yesterday. He does not like baths. Plain and simple. The kid also hates, and I mean hates his diaper changed. He has the most pitiful cry. He basically loses all sound and turns red and when he does wail, it makes you laugh. Poor kid. Other than that, he is pretty content. He loves his pacifier, which is really good. It wilk help when we transition to bottles. He is a fighter and we are so happy to have him home with us. And Joshua thinks he pretty neat too. He likes to pet him and hold his hands. He is turning out to be a great big brother.
Ok, so until tomorrow. :)
