It’s been 4 days since Matt left for home. I have missed him but it’s been really great spending some one-on-one time with Luke. He ate from his bottle really well with Matt but it’s still a little slower for me. I have only been able to get him to eat maybe an ounce or two by bottle at each feeding. But I’m making progress. Yester day it was about an ounce then an ounce and a ah,f and then today 2 ounces….so we’re getting there!
One of the things I was most concerned about doing were his hormone shots. The first night Luke’s foster mom put her hands over mine and guided me as I did the first shot. The next night she was there to support and coach me. And last night I gave his shot all by myself! I feel like such a grown up!
Funny story: yesterday I was feeding Luke sweet potatoes (he loves them!) and the first time he accidentally made a motor boat noise nd the food he had in his mouth came flying out. I died laughing and he then did the same. We exchanged a series of long jolly laughs. Then feeding time was pretty much shot because now he was spitting out all his food! It quickly became a game! That has been one of my favorite moments him with him thus far!
