I now understand

My cousin who had recently had a baby once wrote on her blog that her goal for the day was to shower! I thought she was so silly...joke was on me!

Second Loves

What a difference a day makes - especially a week! Lucy is growing fast and loving every minute! At her two week appointment she weighed 6 pounds 9 ounces and was 20 1/2 inches long. It was very reasuring that she is growing as feeding can be quite the little challenge! She is a very healthy little girl, now if only her mom could get this recovery thing together life would be grand! Again I have to say I love my little girl and am blessed to have her...we have grown quite fond of each other as we have spent our days (and nights) together.

This week Lucy loves...

  • Sucking her fingers

  • Stretching her arms and legs (no more burrito please)

  • Sleeping all day and a little at night!

  • The warmer weather - no more hat to sleep in

  • Peeing all over when daddy changes her

  • Her picture taken

  • Sleeping with her hands above her head

  • Kicking her blankets all over the place

  • Grunting

  • Spitting up!!!

Lucy Ann Germer

Lucy Ann Germer joined our family on Tuesday, May 6, 2008 at 8:09 am. She weighed 6 lbs. 0 oz. and she is 18 inches long. She has a reddish-golden touch to her hair, we'll see if more red will come through. She is a very healthy little girl and we are so blessed to have her. We are overjoyed with the love we feel for her and cannot express how thankful we are for our sweet baby girl. We came home from the hospital yesterday and so far life in the Germer household is great...we'll see how we feel in a few days!!
