happy eater

I have a feeling "don't talk with your mouth full" might be a difficult lesson for Lucy to learn. that's ok, though, because she's stinkin' cute when she does it.

anything she see's she touches. anything she touches, she tries to eat. daddy's chin was especially delicious! :)

you know you're exhausted when...

...your daughter is crying and you mindlessly walk to get her pacifier and then try putting it in your husbands mouth.

Seriously, this happened 20 minutes ago. I think I'll go to bed early tonight.

Papa G visits...

Every couple of weeks my dad comes to visit Lucy. He's crazy (about her, that is), so he drives about 7-8 hours round trip to spend about 4 hours with us. And we love it. Yesterday I was able to capture some Papa G and Lucy moments.

Check out this video of Lucy and my dad playing together...

baby talk

So... I am one of THOSE moms. You know, the ones that annoy you with the way they talk to their babies in sing-song silly baby talk. Yes, that is officially me. BUT, I did read that babies actually respond best to voices that speak that way. So, there's my excuse. And this is all a preface for the video below. The star of the show is obviously Lucy and her adorable smiles and noises, NOT my embarrassing baby talk- so you can ignore that part. Other than that... please enjoy our beautiful daughter...

how sweet it is....

... to be Lucy's mom. She is such a joy, she is adorable, (I'll let you see for yourself), and she is almost 6 weeks old! Oh, how the time flies. Lucy is currently taking a nap, which opens up some time for me to FINALLY update this blog! Yeah!

How was labor and delivery, you ask? Put simply (I'll spare you all the crazy details), it was SO stinkin hard... I do believe, however, that I have an extremely low pain tolerance. But, of course, now that she is here and I get to hold her, I see that she is MORE than worth it. I also had the greatest encouragement along the way. Many of you know that I am married to the most mellow man on earth, so he did a great job of calming me down. My sister and mom were with me, too, in the delivery room... I needed them all- they were wonderful- thanks guys :)

Ok, on to pictures. Who am I kidding? I bet nobody read this before looking at the pictures anyway... :)

after bath time...

She always raises her hand before asking a question... what great manners. :)

Dad and Lucy are giving each other their most serious face. I love this one.

I call this her "sad old man" face... a very cute sad old man ,that is.

She loves her boppy!

If you want to see more pictures... check our album on facebook, we will probably update that one more often.

as promised...

Here are the polls and pictures!

These are a few pictures of when Jonathan caught me putting together the furniture in Lucy's room... after he told me to wait for him to do it. oops, I couldn't wait! :) He wasn't mad, though... he apparently thought it was funny and wanted to capture the moment.
