6 Months Old!!

Today Lucy, our little Lucy, is 6 months old. I just can't believe it. She has been with us for over a month now. Time has flown. Vietnam seems like a distant memory, even though we have only been back for 3.5 weeks now. Life is totally different. Life is great and full now that she is with us. She is the greatest blessing that could have ever been given to Justin and I. To celebrate her being half a year old, Justin and I had tacos for dinner and chocolate sundaes for dessert. Lucy had some cereal and sweet potatoes with a little soy milk to top it off. She was in heaven!!

She continues to amaze us. When she sees us she gets a huge open mouth smile and kicks her legs and waves her arms. She looks for us when she hears our voices. She keeps us laughing most of the time. She is starting to finally take naps, which allows me to get some stuff done around here. She adores being in the carrier with me while I do whatever needs to get done around the house while she is awake. The vaccuum cleaner puts her straight to sleep. She gets fussy around 5 or 6 every night. It is not bad, just a bit whiny. She sleeps great at night. She is down to one bottle and can go 8 or 9 hours before she needs a bottle to tie her over for another couple of hours. Today she slept until 9 am, which is an absolute dream come true for her momma and dad. She will play until she is literally totally exhausted, as seen below.

She still becomes easily overwhelmed in crowded or loud situations, which is to be expected. The sip and see was beatiful and wonderful for me and my friends. Lucy was not too happy with what was goig on. Poor baby. It was just too much for her at this point. I try and avoid these situations whenever possible. She has a runny nose right now and she gets furious when I try and wipe her nose. And I do mean furious. The nose is already on the mend though, so no worries there. She has to get her bloodwork drawn tomorrow, which is going to be horrific, but we will all live.

She can get her tiny little body anywhere it needs to go by crawling, scooting, or sliding. She really is amazingly well at getting herself where she needs to go. I would consider my house a disaster area for small children, but we are going to work on that ASAP.

On the most important front, we are still waiting for the release of Lucy's professional pictures. I am seriously dying to see them I will let you know when we can all see them. They are going to be great!!!

How sweet! Love those pictures. You are so lucky to have such a good sleeper. I hope Miss Lucy taught Kyna this trait.

I am overwhelmed with joy for you! Everything you described about your Lucy at 6 months makes me remember my Lucy at 6 months (that is when I started her blog, so go back to my very 1st entry in July and you will see). The journey of parenthood is so very amazing. I promise you that it does just keep getting better and better, and that the next 6 months will be full of so much excitement as your little girl continues to blossom. We can't wait to meet her!
Sara & Lucy Elise
