We're moving to Florida...

No, we're not really moving to Florida, but its very tempting considering the weather here. I do NOT do cold. I hate the cold. I won't leave the house, literally. I don't know how people up north do it. Coweta County considered not having school yesterday because it was TOO cold. No sleet, no ice, no snow, it was just too cold.

Anyway, sorry about the lack of pictures lately. Our camera has decided to turn off after only taking 3 pictures and demand to be charged again. Mark has been back and forth from Birmingham this month and we're all ready for it to be over. The business is doing well though and Mark is loving it, so Lucy and I are supportive. Here's a few stats/info on Lucy:

  • She has started solid food and so far eats oatmeal, peas, sweet potatoes, carrots, and prunes. However prunes did not sit well with her so we've stopped those. Sweet potatoes are definitely her favorite, but she'll pretty much eat anything.
  • She is SO close to sitting on her own. So close, in fact, that I think most people would say that she is sitting on her own, but I don't consider her to be perfect at it so I'm not claiming it yet.
  • She is rolling over both ways now, tummy to back and back to tummy. About a week ago I went to get her from her nap and she was laying on her stomach sucking her thumb! She has since shown me her new trick during her playtime too. Because of this, we have decided to.....
  • Stop Swaddling! I figured if she was rolling over in her sleep she didn't need to be swaddled, and also didn't want her getting tangled up, so we stopped swaddling cold turkey the other day expecting a few days of crying during naps, but she didn't protest one bit. We tested it out last night as well and she did perfect. So glad the swaddle is gone.
  • She is almost out of 6 month clothing...that's right, she's not even 6 months yet and is already too big for it. It's mainly a length issue, but either way we'll be moving up in sizes fairly soon
  • She grabs EVERYTHING.
  • She is quite the babbler. She puts consonants and vowels together now, and does a lot of "dadadada" and "gagaga" and "yayaya". Mark of course claims she's calling for him when she lets out a "dada" but I'm not putting it in the baby book quite yet :)

Lucy and Daddy. She is really favoring him these days

Trying to get the camera

Lucy, Daddy, and Heidi playing in the hallway. Not really sure why they chose this spot to plop down, but I thought it was funny so I snapped a pic

Going for the camera again

Chewing instead of reading her book

"hey, where did my book go?"
