Weeks 7, 8, Month 2 & Bear Lake

Warning: This is a picture overload. 17 pictures to be exact. I apologize. I just couldn't pick which pictures of my cute baby to post... so there are multiple. 

I am catching up from the last couple weeks... here are pictures of Lucy Marie in her 7th and 8th week of life. She is getting sooo big! She changes every day. It is so sad, but also so fun! I love that she will smile at me and get so happy when we sing to her and talk to her. She is the sweetest baby ever. 

We are totally obsessed with Lucy, but we still love our sweet Maeby just the same! She is so sweet to Lucy and loves to snuggle up next to her and to kiss her feet. They are going to be the best of friends, I just know it! 

Matt and his Ladies... 

Matt's brother Slo (Brad) is a huge runner and seriously runs more than any normal human should. He has been training all year to run a 100 mile race in the mountains. He has done multiple 50 miles races and was ready to take the next step. This weekend was the big Bear 100 race up in Bear Lake so we all planned to go up and watch and support him. Unfortunately, the night before the race Slo ended up getting a fever and coming down with the Flu. :( He has invested too much to give up that easy, so he was determined to give it a shot in the morning. The minute he started running, he couldn't keep anything in his stomach, not even water. He managed to run 30 miles, puking the whole way and with a terrible fever, when he decided it would be best if he drop out of the race. It was the saddest thing ever. We all were so upset because we knew how much time he had put into training, and he was definitely ready and able to do it. Of all the weekends to get sick, this was definitely the worst one. He is still our hero, and we are proud of him! 

Even though Slo couldn't run the race, we decided to make the best of the weekend and enjoy some time in Bear Lake. Lucy was such a great traveler and did so well in the car! This is when we got to the first check point to wait for Slo, this is how Lucy felt about being in her car seat for hours... haha 

We were lucky enough to share a condo with the Calls. We love spending time with them! Crosby and Lucy are only 11 days apart, we decided to measure them while we were there. Crosby is 21 inches long, and Lucy is 23.5 inches long!! Everyone always comments on how long she is for her age, and really, she has got her dads longgg legs. ha They are both so cute! We love cousins! :)

Lucy's first vacation! 
this is a terrible picture of me... we were heading out and I did not do my hair or make up.. but its all about the memories, right? 

When we returned home yesterday, Lucy was officially 2 months old! I hate that time is going so quickly, but I have loved seeing her little personality come out. We sure love this little girl, and we are so happy we get to be her parents! 

I admit, I am totally obsessed with her. I am sure it is annoying to the rest of you. But to be honest.. I don't care! :) I love being a mom more than I ever thought possible, and I love my little Lucy Marie so much! My little family is what brings me the most happiness and I am so thankful to our Heavenly Father that I get to spend eternity with them. They are my best friends and bring me the greatest joy!
