another catch up:)
So Lucy is 6 1/2 months now and when we went in for her appointment she was 18.25 lbs and 27" long. About the low 80% on both..she is doing great and very healthy! She didn't love her shots, and looked at me like how could I ever let anything like that happen to her...it was sad, and with my pregnancy hormones, surprisingly I didn't even cry..she was sure cuddly afterwards though:) She also popped her first tooth. She likes to chew on me, so last Sunday we were playing with me and bit down on me. That's how I found out:) It's fun seeing a little tooth in her mouth. There are so many wonderful things about her. She giggles and coos a lot, sometimes more than we would like during church:) Lucy loves eating news foods and grunts at me if I don't give it to her fast enough, or to tell me she is done. She naps really well, and even though the time change through her off for a couple days, she is back to sleeping 12 hours a night..her naps are a little off still, but we are working on it. Lucy is amazing and so good to me while I have had lots of morning sickness. She was so cute in her Halloween costume...and she helped daddy trick or treat so he could have some candy:)
Evan is doing well, baseball is over so I will definitely see him a lot more. His 30th birthday is coming up and he is getting very excited! I am planning a surprise for him, so we shall see if I can pull it off. He is so good to me and trys to make me so happy. He is really good at helping with Lucy and rubbing my feet when I am soooo tired! Lucy loves seeing him so much when he gets home from work. Now that she is teething, got her shots and dealing with a tired mama, she cuddles so cutely with Evan. They have a bedtime ritual of getting pj's, prayers and ready for bed. I have tried video taping them and pictures. Tonight was so cute when she was half asleep and cuddled into Evan.
I am doing well too! I am loving life and learning to appreciate it more each day. I think I have let other's opinions make me crazy for the last couple years, and I am done with that!!! I am happy with who I am and what I do, and I am going to live accordingly, no more letting other people get to me:) I am going to be me again:) I went and had lunch with Evan today, and it was so fun. Lucy and I walked the mall for 4 hours after that, and I loved getting all the compliments on Lucy..I dressed her really cute today:) One lady came up and said that Lucy was so cute and asked me if I thought it was so fun being a mom, and it is! Then she said, "God bless you" and that really made my day. Pregnancy hunger is really getting to me, I eat ALL OF THE TIME, and I have lost about 8 lbs...we shall see what happens.
We are hopefully going to close on our house soon...pray for us. I hope no other road blocks come in the way. Fortunately we will still get the tax credit. If anyone likes to do handyman things, paint, carpet, electrical etc...let me know:) We will trade, hire or feed you:)
I am all of a sudden really tired so I will post pics and post more later:) Thanks for all of you being so wonderful!
