Lucy 238/365

Annie 238/365

Today I am thankful that Lucy goes to the doctor with no fuss or freak out. We went through a period when she started crying the second the nurse said her name to go back until we were out the door. It was not fun. I took her to her 3 year appointment today and she was awesome! Of course, suckers have helped the situation greatly. She weighed 26 lbs 3 oz (10th%) and was 36.75 inches long (74th%). She was healthy as could be and didn't even freak out about getting the flu mist in her nose. I was so proud of her.

It was a big day for Miss Lucy Goose because she also met her teacher this morning. She got to go in her classroom for 1 hour while I went to the parent meeting. I knew she would not be pleased about me dropping her off. She talked big for several days about how excited she was to go back to school, but I knew that would change when it was time to say goodbye. I stood outside her door and she calmed down within a minute, so I wasn't too worried. When I came back for her, she was happily playing and in a wonderful mood. I think she is going to get right back into the swing of things in no time.

I have had one of those days where I have felt like I was about to fall asleep standing up. I am not sure why. I really slept just fine last night and have been sleeping okay in general. I just couldn't keep my eyes open. I laid down the entire time the girls were down before Lucy's doctor appointment. Of course I couldn't sleep, but just laying in bed with my eyes closed felt so good. It is going to be an early night for me. I had zero desire to take pictures today. These are just a few snaps of the girls playing after shower and before bed. Lucy is obsessed with lip gloss and her Ariel purse. Tonight she told me she was making me very pretty for the big party I was going to. She dreams up some big ideas in that little head of hers!

Justin has his first of two fantasy football drafts tonight, so I have to go. I am his helper. He is extremely serious about this stuff and I have to say, it is somewhat annoying!! He has been studying players for days now. I actually love football season, but I don't really love how much time gets spent on the computer for fantasy football.

Your Lucy and my Ella (seven days older) are exactly the same size. On her check up on Monday she weighed 26.2 pounds and was 36.7 inches tall. Our doctor was a little worried about her weight as she has fallen in percentile on weight growth chart. She was in the 10th percentile and is now around the 6th percentile. She is just too busy to eat these days.

Ha! Phoebe tipped the scales at 27 pounds at the vet the other day (she likes weighing herself on the animal scale). So funny...Lucy must be tiny. It is hard to tell actual size from photographs.

And I hear you about the fantasy football. I've been listening to Paul talk about it all week. Why do they take is so seriously???

Lucy and Annie just get cuter every day! I so enjoy seeing what they are up to every day.
Your pics on the website and your blog look great!
I hear ya on the fantasy football. My husband is so serious about it. It drives me crazy! He invest hours studying the players, and watching the games.
Our Lucy turns 2 in Sept. and I am anxious to see where she is on the growth charts.

Cute pictures- glad Lucy was a great patient. Funny, we go to the doctor tomorrow and then go to meet Aiden's teacher for his MDO program!

Yea for a great doctor's appointment! No big surprise on her backing out of being excited to go to school. Quite natural, but I'm so happy that she calmed right down and had a good time. She's getting so BIG! And drummer Anners is giving Ringo a run for his money! I think it is so funny that she is up and at it right now, when she is usually long in bed!!! She sounds VERY HAPPY and enjoying her time out of bed!!! Talk to you tomorrow. Love and kisses to all, Lee Lee

Ugh. I hear you on the fantasy football. I thought *regular* football was bad enough, since my husband has to watch the game on TV and follow it on Then fantasy football came along I now I just plan on seeing him after the Superbowl.

I love the look on Annie's face. It looks like you just said no or don't touch to her and she is saying, so what, I'm going to do it anyway. I see that look a million times a day.
