Basketball Game Fun

Lucy absolutely LOVED the basketball game so much. She watched the game, cheered when the crowd cheered, danced when the music was playing, ate and ate and ate some more, and just had the best time. We went thinking we would leave at half time if she could even make it that long. The game didn't start until 7 pm. She is generally in bed asleep by around 8 and more like 7:30 when she doesn't nap well (like yesterday). So I was thinking we would be lucky to make it to half time. I was so wrong. She lit up when we got there and did not stop for the entire game. That's right, we made it through the entire game with a happy little pumpkin. She was so happy that she let everyone in the suite hold her and snuggle with her. She buttered everyone up to give her more fruit or get her a little closer to the action. The people there that we didn't know well did not believe me when I told them that she was usually shy in public and never let strangers hold her. She was a total social butterfly. I was so proud of her and just really enjoyed watching her interact with everyone and have so much fun.

We did not get home until about 10:30 and she started crying when we put her pjs on her, but that was the first time she had so much as whined the entire night. She has been catching up with sleep today - a three hour nap and in bed asleep by 7:15. We would not normally ever let her stay up so late because I don't want to pay the price with such a sleepy baby, but she just rolled with it and was the best baby ever. Everyone there kept telling Justin and I that we were so lucky to have such a good baby. We happily agreed!

Lucy has been eating like a horse lately. It used to be like pulling teeth to get her to eat. Recently she has been eating what feels like from sun up to bed time. When she is not eating, she is frantically signing eat, more, and please. We have been letting her eat all day. She prefers fruit over all else, which is at least healthy. I am quite certain when we go to the doctor on Monday for a well visit she is going to have grown quite a bit.

Nana and Grandy are getting here tonight, and we can not wait to see them!! Lucy is going to be so excited when she wakes up and they are here in the morning. Lots of good spoiling for her this weekend.

Here she is at the game and the one and only picture I took at her hair cut. I would have posted it yesterday, but it was on my purse camera and I didn't feel like finding the cord for it.

Awww, how fun! I want to take our babies to a game together!!!! And sure, rub it in about the suite! The only thing I hated about our basketball game was being stuck SMACK DAB in the middle of a row with a potty-training kid! OMG, I thought people were going to throw us over the balcony! So glad you had fun - she looks so cute in her fall clothes! That was fun weather while it lasted, it's hot again here already :-(
