Luke is one month old!!

Where has the last month gone? I seriously feel like I am in a time warp. I have one more week left of leave before I have to return to work. I'm saving a few more weeks for when Luke comes home. We are hoping that we are able to have him home soon! He is up to 4 bottles/nursing sessions a day - just have to double that :) This may be TMI for this but it's my blog so I'll say what I want. I am really struggling with not getting upset about my milk production. It has gone down significantly in the last couple of weeks. I'm trying everything that the lactation consultants recommend...I'm really hoping that we can get it going and that we don't have to move to formula. I want him to get the benefits of breast milk as long as he can. Plus as much as I know it isn't - that feels like a failure on my part. John's being really sweet and encouraging. I know he is frustrated too that he can't help me not feel like it isn't my fault. Please keep me and my ta-tas in your prayers!:)

Luke is now 4 lbs 4.1 oz and is in a big boy bed (the bassinet - not the incubator). He did good on his eye test. They will keep increasing the amount of his feedings (thus the reason for my stress about the milk quantity) and the number of times that are bottle/nursing until he is completely off the feeding tube. All in all he is doing great!! We love our little punkin!!
