My BIG Little Girl

Lucy is feeling much much better. She is still coughing, but her nose is much less runny and she is not throwing up any more. She is back to her normal happy self and it is so wonderful! Thank you all so much for the sweet comments and advice. It certainly helped me.

Yesterday, she got the final bloodwork done for her newborn screen. I forgot to mention that she was a total champ when she had to have 4 viles of blood drawn. She did cry, but nothing major at all. She got the most upset during the 5 minutes it took the ladies to find a vein big enough to use. I was really proud of her and am glad that we are done with all sorts of medical tests for now. We should hear the results in a week or two.

She has decided the past couple of days that she now loves her naps. I am sure I will jinx it by bragging on her, but she has been taking a 1.5-2 hour nap in both the morning and afternoon. I LOVE it. She is so much happier and playful when she is well rested. The whole time that we have had her, she has not been much of a napper. I think that as she gets more and more in her routine with us, she is more relaxed and ready to get rested.

I feel like overnight she has become a big girl. She can now "scoot/crawl" from one end of a room to another, as you can see in the video. She also eats her cereal or veggies in her big girl high chair now. She laughs every time I put her in the chair and bangs on the tray. So cute. She seems to love her chair. Isn't her high chair cute?? Thanks Sara, for the great suggestion on that one!! As far as her eating goes, she is still not that interested in food yet. We have tried peas, green beans, squash, and sweet potatoes. I would say that sweet potatoes are her favorites. She is going to try carrots tonight. We'll see, but I don't expect much. Next week I am going to introduce some fruit. Maybe she will like something a little sweeter.

Lucy, Justin, and I are going to her cousin, Austen's, baptism this weekend. We can't wait for Lucy to meet Austen. They are only 1.5 months apart and are going to have so much fun together!! Her grandparents can't wait to love on both grand babies as well.

WOW! She is quite the crawler! I love that your dog was just staring in awe as Lucy scooted around. Too cute!

Glad to hear that she is feeling better!

Sara said...

Oh my goodness, look at her go! It is just bringing me right back to my Lucy just a few short months ago. We used to say she looked like she was breakdancing :) Your girl will be full-on crawling before you know it...and then life really gets interesting! She is just too cute. Keep up the good work, Mommy!

Oh my gosh, I love that little crawl! How sweet! It feels like yesterday that I was posting videos of Addison crawling like that. All I can say is hold onto your hat, mama, becuase she is about to get REAL big REAL fast and it is so bittersweet! :)

Glad the tests are out of the way and that high chair is ADORABLE!

Look at her go! I think she's going to be a very determined little girl. She knows what she wants and finds a way to get to it. So, so, so cute!!!!

Kim said...

Yes the high chair is sooo cute....Where did you get it. I must have that high chair. I LOVE IT!!

Meredith Woodruff said...

I can't believe she is crawling! She really is such a big girl! I am so proud of her for liking those sweet potatoes! We can start her on sugar busters right away:)! Ha!!! Just kidding! I can't wait to play with you next weekend! Bring lots of pictures, and preferably videos too:)!!!
Have a good weekend!

Love,
Meredith

Glad she is feeling better! She looks so cute in the high chair. My kids both loved avocado at that stage--it was a huge hit. Watch out for the diapers though;)

Ann said...

Awww she's doing so well. Look at her and I love seeing the dogs expression. too funny.

I love how she makes that cute little noise while she's crawling - and kicks her feet to get going! It's adorable. Bianca is a very good supervisor. I notice Bruiser is nowhere to be seen - probably hiding and realizing "that thing" is mobile and that can't be good.

Taylor only liked the sweet potatoes too - she'd eat a little of the other veggies but she ate so many sweet potatoes and carrots her skin turned orange!

Can't wait to see you guys next week!
