Can't Wait...

Oh how I love this picture. As some of you know I have been on a very restrictive diet for my Lucy. Well the diet just got worse - or better - depending on how you look at it. I was in the doctor's yesterday and I am on a fat restricted diet. Seriously this is painful, I cannot figure out anything to eat. I have been having 'attacks' which we think are being caused by gallbladder stuff. I go for an ultrasound on Friday. Here are a few foods I have really missed the past 2 months. I am sure many more foods will be added to the list in the next few days as I start this next phase of dieting.

  • Chocolate. Anything Chocolate.

  • Diet Coke.

  • BBQ chicken pizza at Pier 49.

  • Cheese on my salad and soup at Cafe Rio.

  • Any form of cheese.

  • Mizithra Cheese at Spag Fac.

  • Normal milk with my cereal.

  • Peanut Butter and Jelly.

  • Grilled Cheese.

  • Almonds.

  • Scrambled eggs.

  • Egg Mcmuffins - homemade by Rhett.

  • Bean and Cheese burrito from La Cocina.

  • Fresh grilled cheeseburger.

  • Sour Cream on my potatoes.

  • Cheese on my cauliflower.

  • German Pancakes.

  • French Toast.

  • Coffee Ice Cream - my mouth just waters when I think of it. Well, that is just to name a few. I need to stop or I will cry!

Happy Day!

This is what I got to play with this morning. I knew it was going to be a much needed good day.

Lucy's Blessing

Lucy was blessed by her daddy on July 20, 2008 in our ward. She was blessed in the same dress my sisters and I were blessed in. It is a beautiful dress. What an amazing day it was. We are so blessed to have this little girl in our lives. She was so pleasant and happy ALL day long. She knew it was a special day! Rhett did an amazing job. I keep telling him it was the best blessing I have ever heard. We are so fortunate to have such great family and friends that were all able to be with us. Thanks everyone for sharing Lucy's special day.

Lucy's Announcement

Favorite Friday

I am loving this adorable binki clip I got for Lucy. I decided it couldn't be hard to make so I made another one yesterday. I got the Bella Tunno clip from I love that they are starting to sell baby gear. I actually got my car seat from Gotta love The Gap.

Trip to the Zoo!

I know you are thinking we are crazy thinking that Lucy would enjoy the zoo. We knew she wouldn't, and she didn't! Lucy was pretty much sad and mad the whole time. It must be the smell of the zoo, who can blame her! We had tickets from Rhett's work so we thought we might as well go. As for Rhett, he enjoyed it. He took about 37 pictures of a leopard, wierd. As for me - I do not like the smell of the zoo either. Maybe next year it won't smell.

Favorite Friday

My sister in law Amy does a 'Favorite Friday' post each week. I am joining in!

This week my favorite are these receiving blankets from Target my sister Melissa gave me. I didn't think I would need them amongst my other 29 blankets (Yes, I have 29 blankets and they all get used!), but I finally opened the package this week. Love them, I am sad I waited so long. They are perfect for swaddling Lucy's legs - please no arms mom. They are big and thin for summer. You should buy them!

Thanks for the Memories

I found this on my friend Meredith's blog and thought it would be fun. I love to remember old memories! Thanks for joining in.

The Memory Post

1. As a comment on my blog, leave a memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you know me a little or a lot, anything you remember! If we're only blogging friends, write about a post that is most memorable.

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses.

3. If the memory happens to involve my family, please include them!

4. If you can't say something nice, don't say nothin' at all ☺

And please do this on your page too, so we can all share in the fun times together. :)

By the way, can anyone tell me how to make my paragraphs look like paragraphs? It all just jumbles together when I post.

She is growing!

We went to the doctor's on Monday for Lucy's two month check up - yup two months! She is very healthy with the exception of food allergies and excessive crying. She also got her shots - so sad! She took a 3 hour nap right after the shots but then the crankiness set in! Yay.

Here are her stats

  • Weight - 10 Ibs. 13 Oz. - 50%

  • Height - 22 Inches - 40%

  • Head - 37.5 cm - 25%

She is still little, but growing very fast. A few more facts from the past few weeks.

  • Lucy has discovered her left hand. She sucks on it quite a bit.

  • She is a great bubble maker.

  • She still sleeps with her hands way above her head or touching her face.

  • When she is cuddling, eating, or just hanging out she always has a hand at her face.

  • Her nails still grow sooo fast - we clip and file twice a week.

  • Lucy is growing out of some of her clothes so she has a whole new wardrobe!

  • She will only sleep 1 good shift a night - which really isn't that good!

  • Her hair is growing back on the top of her head. It is very blonde with a red tint and we think her hair will be curly. She is a mini Rhett.

  • Everyone says she looks like Rhett.

  • She loves bath time.

  • Lucy love getting her diaper changed. She will usually smile during most of the chaning.

  • She loves to be the center of attention (I wonder where she got that from?).

4th of July

We had a pretty good 4th of July. Of course, Rhett worked...but the party must still go on. It was fun to at least have Lucy with me to enjoy the traditions. We went to the Evergreen Parade in the morning, hung around at my grandpa's house, then to my parent's house for some much needed swimming, bbquing, fireworks, and hanging out with family. I certainly wore Lucy out because she slept longer than she has ever slept before - 4 hours!!!! I was so happy when I looked at the clock and it said 4:00. I was so happy that after she ate I could not get back to sleep!! Oh well.
