Lucy just keeps growing! She is now six weeks old and just over 8 pounds. She tries really hard to hold her head up all by herself, and to stand up on our legs. She prefers to sleep naked and sleeps longest in mom and dads bed. (I am not a real supporter of "co-sleeping" but some nights I will do ANYTHING for sleep.) The longest she sleeps at a time is 6 hours, and in all honestly that feels like days to me! I feel like a new woman when I get that much sleep. She will smile at us and she even giggled at Matt one day. She loves her binki and loves to eat. She is the sweetest little baby ever and I am so lucky to be her mom.
A few people have asked me to post pictures of her nursery. The reason I haven't posted anything yet, is because it isn't really finished. I still need to get some pictures printed, a canvas hung and a mirror hung. I'll get there eventually... :)
but here is what we have so far. My goal for this room was to be very calm and simple. I don't like a lot of crap on the walls and I didn't want it to be too bright or busy. I wanted it to be as sweet and peaceful as a new baby. So here is Lucy's room so far..
Crib: Pottery Barn
Bedding: Pottery Barn
Chair: RC Willey
Night Stand: Was my Grandpas when he was a little boy, Matt fixed it up for Lucy :)
Mirror (on the floor waiting to be hung): Hobby Lobby
This is a picture of the first time Matt made her giggle. I was holding the camera and tried to snap a picture as fast as I could, so its pretty blurry and a really bad angle... but its a moment I am glad I could capture.
And she isn't sure how she feels about "tummy time".
Such a little sweetie.
Being a mom is the best job ever.
as a side note, Matt and I started Insanity this week.
we are only three days in and my body hates me.
having a baby really does a number on you.
wish me luck.
3 days down, 57 to go.
