The little things from last week ...
Lucy can finally play in her bouncer because her feet can finally touch the floor! She loves bouncing away, squealing with joy all the while. I've been attempting to put her in the bouncer for the past month, but because her feet couldn't touch the floor, she couldn't hold herself upright and would end up leaning back and getting stuck like a turtle on its back! :)- Not much fun for her until now!!!
Lucy also got to wear her OshKosh overalls for the first time - they finally fit! :-) I can't tell you how often I wore those things as a child - I think I lived in them! My mom says they were the only pants that were long enough for my legs ... too bad that meant they were also sagging halfway to my knees because the shoulder straps were let out as far as they could go! I must have been quite the fashion statement. Luckily, Lucy doesn't have that problem - (yet, anyway).
Saturday, Lucy and I headed to Washington Square. There was a clay artist at Nordstrom that day who does "tot tracks" (hand and foot prints) in clay, then paints and fires them ... very cool! Lucy did such a great job - they were very impressed :-).
Scott and I also got out for our 2nd official "date" without Lucy. We went out for a nice dinner, and had a great time - although, I can't tell you how many times I turned around to look at Lucy in the back seat - only to remember that she wasn't with us. It is crazy how I can actually miss her after only 3 hours ...
Oh! I also got to see WICKED at the Keller in Portand ... wow, it was amazing. What a great weekend!
And for the perfect ending ... Monday morning about 3:00, we were awakened by Lucy on the baby monitor - cooing, babbling, gurgling - whatever you want to call it - but she was doing it in this soft little voice, almost a whisper, as if she knew it was the middle of the night and mommy and daddy were trying to sleep. It was oh so sweet! Scott and I were both laughing - and after about a half-hour of "talking" to herself, she just went back to sleep - even more sweet! ;)-
