Wow. January has been one crazy month. Here’s a recap of the last 2 weeks:
On Wednesday, January 14th Lucy rolled from front to back about 10 times. I couldn’t get her to stay on her tummy:
Since then? Nada. Nothing. Zilch. She’s decided that rolling over isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and would rather cry on her tummy than turn over. The doctor said that this is completely normal and that is why they don’t use rolling over or crawling as a milestone because some babies just don’t like to do it, so they don’t. Yes, she already has a mind of her own!
She has decided that she likes traveling. Out to Pennsylvania we were on a plane for about 7 hours and on the way back about 8 hours. She was a perfect angel. No fussing. Just sleeping, smiling, and playing. Numerous people commented on what a cute/well behaved/happy baby we have and I’ve got to say that I agree.
Our trip to PA was fun but COLD. The morning after we arrived the thermometer said this:
No, not the top number. The bottom number-yes you read right, it was -2.4 outside. Brrrrrr.
That first night we stayed at our friend’s Kim and Kevin’s house where Lucy got to meet their daughter, Crista, who just turned 1:
Our friends Mike, Claire, and their son Max were also there. Here’s Lucy with Claire:
This was a trip for Lucy to meet many people and boy did she ever!:
Her cousin Tyler:
Her Aunt Kara and Uncle Jerel (with Tyler-who is Uncle Ricky and Aunt Kelly’s son-Kelly is in the background of this picture):
I think Lucy wrapped Uncle Jerel around her little finger:
The trip was really for Lucy to meet her 2 Great Grandmas.
Here she is with 93 (almost 94) year old Grandma Titus:
And 83 (almost 84) year old Grandma Gale:
They both thought she was pretty special 🙂
Lucy also met her Uncle Larry, Aunt Janet, Cousin Matt, and Cousin Stephanie. Somehow I only got a picture of her with Cousin Stephanie:
Her Cousin Matt was able to jiggle her to sleep and I thought we got a picture of it but I can’t find it anywhere.
We also got to meet Stephanie and Jenna:
I met Stephanie on Baby Center where we commiserated about our pregnancies and now our infants. Jenna was born 4 days after Lucy. They are the same height but Jenna weighs 3 pounds more.
We went to Hershey World:
Where Daddy clowned around:
We did alot of driving this trip. Lucy wanted to try, so we let her (not really!):
Lucy also found some time to just hang out:
And to see Grandma of course!
Oh and the snow!
We got back Saturday and today Lucy had her 4 month doctor’s appointment. She weighs 12.6 pounds (45th percentile) and is 24.5 inches tall (75th percentile). The doctor thinks that she’s going to keep her blue eyes and said that she is doing “just perfect”.
She goes to her first half day of daycare tomorrow 🙁 and I start work on Thursday 🙁 🙁 🙁 I can’t believe it’s been 4 months already.
