I have finally got the video thing figured out. Woo Hoo for me!! The first one is Lucy in her Jumperoo. My mom was making a monkey noise for her and she really did think it was the funniest thing she had ever heard. The other one is from our hotel room in Danang. She was being so funny. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Today is Justin and I's 3 year anniversary. He is a wonderful father and husband and we are both blessed to have one another. Marriage is a lot of work, but it is so worth it. Justin has taught me so much and I look forward to the memories and great times we will have in the future.

Lucy has slept great for the past 2 nights. Back to her normal 11 hours with 2 bottles throughout the night. She is eating some cereal now and we are hoping it helps her sleep a little longer at night. She is still not a great eater. I wish that I could get a little more down her, but she seems to be just fine with the amount that she is taking. We have her pediatrician check up next Tuesday, so we will see what he has to say about her eating. Any tricks on how to get her to eat more??? Also, Lucy is sleeping in her crib now. She is a restless sleeper but now that she is settled in with us she sleeps a million times better in her crib. She LOVES the soft blankets that we have for her and she rubs them all over her face and snuggles in with them. It is so cute.

She is going to be crawling soon. Within the past couple of days she has started pulling her knees under herself in the crawl position. She doesn't know what to do once she gets there, but she can get in the position. She is already changing and growing so much it amazes me. I already feel like she is getting so big. She is really still just a little bitty pumpkin and I try and cherish all of my "baby" moments with her. Sometimes I just rock her for a long time even though she has been dead asleep because I know I won't always be able to do that.

Okay, I have to run, but I will update the pictures soon.

You are so right to rock her even when she is sleeping--babyhood is so precious and fleeting--I have never heard a mom say she wished she rocked her baby less! She is beautiful, glad you are enjoying this time!

you know what? as stressed out as I feel about the ever growing wait for referral, when I read your blog and see your precious Lucy, I feel so happy for you I could cry. which proves two things: 1, am not nearly as self absorbed as i think I am, and 2, your blog is one of the great blessings of my life. Thanks, friend! and kiss that cutie pie for me!

Thank you so much for the videos. Lucy is beyond cute and watching the videos of her definitely makes the wait for my little one a bit easier.

Happy anniversary to you and Justin. Best wishes for many, many more fabulous years together!

I just came across your blog and I'm so excited for you! What great just got home! Congratuations!

My husband and I are also adopting baby #1 from Vietnam. We are just waiting to get fingerprinted next week. I am living vicariously through everyone else on the web right now! It's comforting to see another young couple going through this...I noticed you are 27, we are as well and it seems like we are certainly on the young end of the adoption world. I'd love to hear more about your process and where in the world you have gotten some of the WONDERFUL clothes...I'm a clothing and shoe freak as well and I hate the traditional "cutsie" clothes out there.

I know your really busy now, but we also have a blog's I pretty much only update when we have adoption news :) I wish it were more often.

Anyway, congratulations on your new beautiful baby Lucy. I'll check back to see how things are going!

Jenna (soon to be mom of Ella)

LOVE the videos. Your mom is cracking me up with the monkey sounds. Annslee, my monkey girl, would go nuts hearing it.
Rock, rock and then rock some more. I will tell you that Annslee has never let me sit and rock her. She is a stand and sway girl with her head on my shoulder patting my back the whole time (you can tell I hate it..ha ha) I do love those moments but at her now 30 pounds I wish she would let me sit down!
Glad things are going well..don't worry about are doing Great!
