Some early morning smiles from Rai
Tracen and Mommy selfies.
Tracen sharing with Rai.
So these pictures are not in chronological order at all. Life is busy and full. Luke hasn't been feeling too great, and after some trips to the doctor, hospital and blood tests like crazy (no official diagnosis), he has decided to cut out sugar completely, eat a small amount of complex carbs and probiotics until things get better and slowly introduce things back in. For anyone that knows Luke at all, this is a big deal. However, I am off dairy and chocolate (due to breastfeeding) and it makes it a little easier for both of us because we both aren't eating things that are tempting to each other. I am excited to eat healthier, but I need to start planning meals, and we could really use a health food store out in Vernal. I tried to make him cookies last night (coconut ginger ones with coconut flour) and they were actually so gross, and we tossed them... it was kind of depressing. It is exciting because Luke is already feeling a little bit better. Healthier eating is never a bad thing, and he has even eating spaghetti squash and steel cut oats and enjoyed the latter.
Rai had his 2 week appointment last week (it was closer to 3 weeks) and he weighed 9 lbs and 5 oz (just 1 oz shy of gaining a pound) and actually measured to be 21 1/4 inches long. He is still a pretty content and calm little guy and will have to learn quickly to be tough as Tracen roughs him up a bit.
