It was so much fun walking in to Katie's house every afternoon and finding her and Lucy just hanging out and grinning at each other. Lucy loves when Katie gasps with her mouth wide open and Katie claims Lucy's big open mouthed smile is her doing. What cute girls!

It is true. My brief time on maternity leave was up last Friday and I headed back to high school. It feels good to be surrounded by people and to use my problem solving skills on high gear, but I sure do miss seeing "the Lucy" all day long. It was some much less painful because my sister watched her all week and Lucy loves Katie! I mean, really adores that aunt of hers. Lucy is one lucky girl; she will be surrounded by grandmas and her dad until I am done with the school year in June. P.S. please don't judge the post-maternity weight, it was really hard to post pictures of myself!

Lucy is three months old today and the most delightful girl ever. I love having this little one in my life. A few things about Lucy at this stage * she wakes up smiling * she goes to bed crying * she sleep 11 hours at night * she never naps longer than 30 minutes * she is lulled to sleep by the harsh sound of a vacuum * she wakes up when I turn a page in a book * she "talks" in five minute periods * she knows when we are farthest away from home base on a walk and starts fussing * she fusses long enough for mom to pick up her pace, burn a few extra calories, and then falls asleep * if she starts to fall asleep when people are around she shakes her head to wake herself up, so as not to miss a thing * she has worked a bald spot onto her head due to said shaking * she prefers the cadence of grown up books to that of a children's book * she just finished The Help and loved it * she is banned from the t.v. because she can't take her eyes off of it * mom broke the rules and let her watch glee * she is over the swing * she drools like crazy * she looks silly in bibs * she has two really long hairs on the top of her head * she has a mullet * she likes being held by a variety of people * she is starting to grab at hair and clothes and, unfortunately, hoop earrings * if her dad is home and not holding her, she unceasingly follows his voice with her head *she has us wrapped around her fingers

Mike will dress Lucy, and proceed to take her all around town, in mismatched, oversized, dirty, or weather incongruent clothing. He will not, however, be caught dead putting her in
or leg warmers.
They are, nevertheless, my two favorite accessories.

Lucy loves being in someone's arms. Although better at hanging out on the floor, she still looks around pretty confused when no one is holding her. Of course, everyone's arms offer different experiences. With dad, she get adventure and trouble (please note the chocolate on her mouth).
And with Katie she gets total relaxation.
