Our New Baby Boy

We are finally getting settled into our new life with a three year old and a newborn. I made it to my scheduled c section date last Wednesday and delivered a healthy little boy. He was perfect in every way and I was so relieved when I heard him cry for the first time. This pregnancy was not at all normal with blood tests coming back almost every time with different concerns. So when the doctors said he was as healthy as can be we were so relieved. He did swallow alot of fluid so he was kept in the nursery for almost 7 hours for extra monitoring. When we finally got him to our room it was so amazing to share him with his big sister!

Introducing Luke Anthony Locascio

9 lbs 20.25 in
full head of black hair

When Travis left the OR to take Luke to the nursury he picked up big sis on the way. She was more concerned about her daddy being a doctor than her little brother. He was in his scrubs and she kept asking him "Daddy you are a doctor?.......Doctor Travis?" She loves to watch Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice with me so she was kind of excited that her daddy was a doctor!
When Luke finally came to our room she was smitten by him. She is totally in love with her baby brother!

We had a special gift for Luke to give his big sister and then Brook had picked out a few things for her baby brother as well. Brook got a horse necklace from James Avery and Luke got a horse lovie and a Build a Bear that Brook made him a few days before his arrival!

hi there. stumbled upon your blog, and wanted to say congratulations! He is precious and so is big sis.

I'm expecting #2 in 6wks and my oldest is 3. I'm curious to see how he adjusts, not sure if he totally gets it. :)

Best of luck to you!
