Welcome! I started this blog as a way to share Lucy with family and friends far and wide. I'll do my best to keep it updated but we'll have to see how it goes. So far, being a mom of a newborn means I get very little done. :)
We are thrilled to have our little Lucy with us. She was born September 22, 2010, at 8:23 PM. Lucy is a little peanut, and weighed in at just 5 lbs 11 oz. She was 19 inches long. Now two weeks old, Lucy is back to her birth weight and growing strong! She grew over an inch from Friday to Tuesday! Amazing.
I have to admit that being a new mom is even harder than I imagined. My mom will tell you she's been a bit worried about me. I am feeling better every day though. Healing from an emergency c-section, crazy raging hormones, and sleep deprivation aren't exactly the best combination. I have heard all my life about how hard it is, but I really couldn't imagine it.
We are in love with Lucy and laugh regularly at her hilarious ever-changing faces. She shares her mom's fondness for pirates, is the spitting image of her dad, and has her mom's tiny bendable pinky toe. She barely fits into her teeny-tiny clothes, and certainly does not fit into the other, just tiny, ones. We know this will change soon and we look forward to chubbiness. I hope for fat knees. She has intense eyes that may just have some blue in them. She is our little squeakerbean.
Until next time,
