Life, as always, is crazy!
Last week I went to Mommy’s group and Lucy’s friend AJ had all sorts of fun toys. Lucy really liked his activity table. Sorry for the blurriness-I took them with my iPhone.
Isn’t she a BIG GIRL?
She IS one champion stander!
It was so crazy to see all these kids together. When Lucy and I started going to “play dates” the babies would sleep or just lay there and the Moms would talk about how tired they were. Now the babies are EVERYWHERE. Two of them are crawling, many of them can roll to where they want to be and they are all playing with toys and vocalizing. It was a madhouse! But still really fun! It’s great to see the babies interacting with one another.
Mommy (that’s me!) got pretty sick last week and I was amazed that Lucy didn’t catch it. Well I was amazed too soon. Our little munchkin got really sick this weekend. She had a temperature, a cough, wheezing, and mucus galore (ewww!). Both Shaun and I got the experience (multiple times) of being puked on. It was a hard 4 days. Lucy also was quite listless and slept A LOT. Here she is sleeping like she used to on Daddy:
On Sunday she slept from 1PM-7PM, only waking up to eat every few hours. 7:30 is normally her bedtime but Munchkin was wide awake and showing more alertness than she had all day. We let her stay up with us and she got to see what happens after she goes to bed-Daddy plays XBOX!
Daddy, how does this work?
I want one!!!
I got one!!!
Shaun saved an old broken controller, knowing that one day she’d want one just like Daddy. He thought that day would come in a few years, but nope! Lucy got her very own controller at 7 months. I told Lucy to kick Daddy’s booty and Daddy informed me that they were on the same team and were killing the bad guys together.
Lucy was really sick until Tuesday afternoon when she started to feel a little better. She was much better Tuesday morning but not nearly healthy enough. I actually tried to drop her off at daycare on Tuesday and when I saw her next to healthy kids I figured out that she was better but being better from horrible doesn’t make you healthy. It took me forever to leave daycare and when I did I burst into tears as soon as I got in the car. I called Shaun and we figured out a way for me to work from home for a second day. He was able to come home for an extended lunch so I could be on a call Lucy-less. I got off the freeway and went back to pick my sick girl up. They were shocked to see my at daycare but I know that I did the right thing.
Here’s our smiley girl this morning:
You can almost, but not quite, see her teeth in this picture. I’ve been trying to get them but they’re hard to catch!
She’s started to get around on her back. She arches her back and bounces up and down to get places. She can cover a good foot in about 30 seconds. We know that crawling is just around the corner!
