One week of Augustine Ignatius •
He is gaining weight like a pro despite the same nursing troubles I had with Lily, and every day gets a little better. I had been having to mostly pump and bottle feed him, but tonight I was actually able to nurse him and I am so thankful. Nursing is something I will never take for granted and I hope the mamas it comes easily to know how blessed they are.
He loves to sleep being held, especially on daddy while he is playing video games which he's been doing a lot of now that he's finished with school ;)
He opens his eyes more and more everyday and especially loves seeing his big sister. He has insane neck and leg strength and is always trying to move around. Our first family outing was a walk to our church and it was lovely. Big sister has jumped into potty training and is doing amazing, becoming such a big girl so suddenly. I was blessed to have such a smooth labor & delivery and recovery has beenbetter than I ever imagined possible. Remember how Princess Kate looks after having a baby? Yeah, that's how good I feel.
Augustine is figuring out his days and nights, and having Alex home has been the biggest help -- especially on the days I'm extra exhausted. He also loves being in the sling which makes my mama heart so happy! I can't wait to see how Lily and brother grow together since they are already inseparable.
