Lucy and her cousin, Grace
 - both are just a little over 4 months

Each month, Lucy and I get together with my cousin, Melissa, and her baby girl, Grace.  Grace is just a week and a half older than Lucy, so it is VERY fun to get them together each month to see how they are growing and changing!  Lucy started out so much smaller than Grace, but continues to catch up to her more and more each month ... 
Last week, Melissa and Grace came over to our house for a few hours, and we were even able to get outside for a walk with the strollers.   I love being able to talk with and compare stories with Melissa each month ... it's so great to know there's someone else out there who knows EXACTLY what you're experiencing right now! We've decided that Grace needs to teach Lucy how to eat better (her rice cereal, in particular), and Lucy needs to teach Grace how to sleep longer!  

Lucy with Sherry in the hallway at Butte Creek

Last week on Monday, it was "Read Across America Day" (which is in honor of Dr. Seuss's birthday).  Lucy and I put on our pajamas, grabbed our Dr. Seuss books, and headed out to Butte Creek for a half-hour of reading in the hallways with all of Butte Creek's students.  Under her jammies was an adorable Dr. Seuss "One Fish, Two Fish .." onesie that Therese had given me the day after she found out I was pregnant a year ago ... it was my first official baby gift, and I was so excited when she gave it to me, I was shaking and almost cried.  I can't believe I now have the baby to go IN the onesie already!


Thank you for your comments!
I love EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. :-)
