Mister Luke and I got home this afternoon. We are both doing well. In fact, our sweet little prince is doing even better at home than in the hospital. We had a feeding (i.e. nursing) setback which resulted in a greater than 10% weight loss during our hospital stay. While the nurses and lactation consultant seemed to be overly concerned by this, I knew that once we got to the privacy, quiet, and relaxing atmosphere of our home that Luke would get this nursing thing figured out. After all, this precious little soul has a bit of a learning curve to master where as mama is a two time nursing champ! Besides, at 8 lbs. 12 oz. he is a big boy and had plenty of weight to spare! LOL
Right now we are snuggled in bed together as daddy does the dishes downstairs. Daddy was also kind enough to load today's pictures on to his laptop so that I could blog from the comfort of my master bedroom as I try to catch up on some rest. (One really does not get much recuperation while in the hospital...nurses are in constantly assessing your pain level, checking c-section incision, monitoring baby's vitals, etc.)
My parents left this afternoon after their 4-day stay with us. I so appreciate that my mom, who is still working full-time, was able to take time off from her job to help Chris and me with Mary and Ben. I think that the older two were so well behaved because they got a lot of TLC from their "mimi and papa"! Tomorrow morning, Chris and Mary are picking up Grandma Kueter. Chris' mom is going to stay with us for the next three days to also help out with the older two. I understand that she has already prepared several meals for us for this week! Sweet!!!
I imagine my posts will be short and sweet for the next few days/weeks, but I know you all understand. I so loved and appreciated all your kind comments on Luke's arrival post! Also, so that I can blog in comfort, Chris is letting me use his laptop which does not have Windows Live Writer loaded. So, I'm back to using blogger to upload photos...not a lot of choice when it comes to altering size, font color, etc.
I'm off to catch up on my blog reading and visiting.
Wishing you all a good night,
