It's Alive!!

Warning this may be graphic: Okay after almost ten weeks of poopy diapers and learning to be comfortable whipping my boob out in public, I think I am finally settling into a routine. By that I mean, Lucy runs the show and I learn to chill out. We are finally making our way back to some of the things we did before, hanging with friends, trips to WalMart-heck we even watched the HBO movie about John Adams part I and II the other day. (highly recommend by the way). It's been a tough transition for us. We are still adjusting. I think the older you are when you start your family the more difficult it is. It is just crazy to think how much this little girl needs us, and about our future providing for her. I am enjoying my time off with her and can't believe it's already been 10weeks that we've had her. She is smiling so much more, cooing, and picking her head up so well. She even napped (on her tummy-don't tell) in her crib for two hours. What a great start, considering we currently put her to bed for the night in her car seat, in the crib. She's doing great with breastfeeding, not sure what she was but I'd bet 15-16lbs. She'll be right on track to double her weight by her third month. Also she LOVES being by herself-I know this sounds strange but stick a stuffed animal by her and she'll talk away. I think we have an independent one on our hands. So after 10 weeks, I can finally say I feel more alive again-what a crazy ride this life has been...can't wait for more with Lucy and Dave. Loretta too! Here are some pics from this week. Someday I'll get back to writing about more than just Lucy, but for now-
