On Monday, Lucy turned 5 months old! I feel like her little personality is blossoming with each passing day. She is so inquisitive and wants to be part of the action. If she feels left out, she will let you know!
Here is what Lucy is up to...
~She can roll from her back to her tummy, she did this a whole 2 months earlier than her sweet sister, but if you put her on her tummy she tries to scoot forward and she tries to get up on her knees...I just want the kid to roll the other way, not start crawling!
~I have been making baby food, a first for me! I have made all of her veggies and some fruits, but we mainly buy fruits at the store, I am not making prunes! So for meals Lucy is eating 2 ice-cube veggies, and an entire container of first foods fruit...little piggy! Plus, drinking a bottle after that!
~Lucy is wearing size 4 diapers, but 5's may be in her future soon.
~She is mostly wearing 18 month clothes, some 12 still fit, but in pants it at least has to be 18 months in the tummy, however they are so long in the legs, we roll what we can.
~Lucy is a momma's girl! Way more than Molly ever was, it's bad! If Lucy knows I am in the building somewhere, she gets mad if she is not with me. She does fine at church, but I think it's because she knows I am in and out of the Nursery all morning. Lucy loving me a lot does not always go over so well on Mondays when Eric stays home...he usually needs some alone time when I get home :)
~Lucy was sleeping through the night, if she woke up, usually her pacifier did the trick, and she would go back to sleep, but for some reason this week she has been getting up to eat again, so I am thinking we are hitting that 6 month growth spurt about a month early.
~We are working on 3 teeth on the bottom right now and I am about to go nuts, so I can't imagine how Lucy feels! The one tooth to the right of her bottom teeth I think will break through before the 2 bottom ones. She is just pretty miserable sometimes, and she hates baby oragel, she acts like you are putting rat poison in her mouth! Anything she can chew/gnaw on, she does!
~Lucy is into pulling on anything she can get her hands on...so watch your hair, earrings, necklaces, glasses, face, lips, anything, she grabs and she has a grip!
~This proud mama could go on and on, but I will leave you with this...Lucy is such an absolute joy to be around, her smiles and giggles melt all my troubles away and I look forward to every single day with her. I love you, Lucy!!
