Our new laptop decided to die last week so we haven’t been able to upload any new pictures of Lucy. I even have a video of her smiling at me for about a minute-it’s about the cutest thing ever. Hopefully we’ll get those up and posted soon-hurry up HP!
Today was Lucy’s 2 month check-up. She’s doing great! She weighs exactly 10 pounds and is 23.5 inches long!!! The doctor said that her height was “off the charts”. Since I’m 5’1 and Shaun is 5’6 we never thought we’d hear that about our child. I’m sure it won’t stay that way for long.
Lucy’s Grandma and Pop (Shaun’s parents) are visiting from Pennsylvania. They arrived last Saturday and will be here through next Tuesday. They’ve been getting some quality Lucy time.
We hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving. Hopefully we’ll be back with pictures and videos soon!!!

Daddy decided to try the Bumbo out. She sat in it for 10 minutes and held her head up the entire time!!! She’s growing up too fast!!!
She wore her first pair of jeans and “shoes” this weekend:

Yesterday was Shaun’s 30th Birthday, or as he lovingly calls it, his 27 +3 Birthday. Here’s some pictures:
Chillin with Daddy before Dinner:
We LOVE the Baby Bjorn:
Shaun asked for do it yourself sushi for his birthday. The rule is whatever you want on your birthday (within reason) you get! Birthdays are my absolute favorite thing and I try really hard to make them as special as possible.
Here’s the spread:
A happy guy!
Shaun and I picked out his gift from me a few weekends ago. I got him some really nice mountain biking shoes to replace his 6 year old $40 ones that were falling apart. I let him use them for his ride on Sunday (since the old ones literally fell apart) so he wasn’t expecting any gifts. MUHAHAHAHA! Lucy got him a gift!
What is it?

We ended the night with a family portrait:
In other Lucy news, she was weighed yesterday and she weighs 9 pounds 5 ounces!!! She’s nursing well! No wonder her newborn clothes and diapers are getting too small. I can’t believe she’s already 7 weeks old and getting so big. It makes me both happy and sad. I love watching her grow but I know that as she gets bigger, I’m going to miss my little 6 pound munchkin!

Okay, I admit it. Before Lucy was born I really thought all newborns (up until 6 months) were the same – they input (milk), output (poo), and process (sleep) but nothing else. I was wrong, very wrong.
Lucy is now six weeks old and while most of her day is spent as listed above, we get a few hours of actual interaction time every day. This usually consists of patty-cake, dancing (looks like sweatin to the oldies), stretching her limbs, and checking herself out in the mirror (seriously…).
To help promote self-learning, I thought it would be a good idea to buy Lucy a play gym! I got kind of carried away and ended up with the Lamborghini Diablo of “Activity Play Sets” – this thing squeaks, plays music, lights up, shakes, etc… I hope it doesn’t feel like we’re putting her on a different planet!! Although, she seems to EXTREMELY enjoy spending time in her play set and is actually able to swat – and make contact with – the items hanging down. We’re still interacting with her just as much, only now she gets to play while we do chores that would otherwise require her to be in a crib/swing/etc…
We’re not very into toys so maybe this will hold us over until her first mountain bike? Yeah…right!
