Favorite Part of the Day

I spend the trip driving home each day pulling off my earrings, taking off necklaces, putting my hair in a ponytail, and sanitizing my high schooled hands so that the second I walk in I can grap that Lucy girl. Love this part of my day.

Monday is laundry day
And this is how we both feel about it

Saturday Simplicity

Just hanging out today, waiting for grandma and grandpa.

Sitting Up

Mike has discovered that Lucy really likes sitting up "on her own". He often tips her car seat so that she is in a vertical position and he bought her a great little pink chair that she can sit in and skype away all afternoon.

Lucy and Katie

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!

Back to Work

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!

Can't Let Them Sit

This pictures are a few weeks old but I just couldn't let them sit on my computer without an audience of grandmas and aunts who might enjoy them.

Using Her Hands

thinking about it
making her move

How is it that every little thing this girl does is so much fun to watch. I love it.

3 Months Old

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

Fashion Ideals

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.

Just because I think she looks cute in her pjs in the morning...

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.
