Last week, Lucy hit the six month mark! I think I've gone from feelings of sadness and disbelief at how quickly the time has gone - to just plain denial. I absolutely canNOT believe it has been six months since Lucy came into this world.
New "little things" seem to come about nearly every day with her ... the latest is her saying "dada...dada...dada..." over and over and over, pretty much all day long. Sometimes she whispers it, sometimes she screams it, but "dada" is definitely her first official "word" (if you can call it that). Scott, of course, is THRILLED because he is just sure that she knows what she's saying. The other day, he called from work, and I put him on speaker phone so that Lucy could hear him. She immediately said, "dada, dada" - which I think completely made Scott's day. (never mind that she had been chanting it all day, but oh well - he didn't know that!)
I am finally getting a video camera this week, so I'm hoping to film her "talking" and put it on my blog - assuming I can actually figure out how to do all of that! :)-
**UPDATE! I figured it out, so the video is below ... just click the arrow - so cute! :-)
I have kindergarten round-up tonight ... meeting next year's kindergartners and their parents. So I guess you could say this is my first "official" day back to work. It's definitely making the reality of my going back to work next year sink in just a little bit more... four more months (sigh).
