Dear Lucy,

Happy Birthday!

"Hi Bubba" was the first thing you heard the day you were born. Your dad said it & I'm sorry, it stuck. Bubs, Lulu, Princy, Bieber (morning hair), Lucelia (Mexican nights) are some others.

You have been such a good baby. From the start you ate & slept like a champ. You were sleeping through the night at 2 months old. To this day, you like to get your 11 hrs in. You are so happy and I am always getting compliments about how cute & happy you are.

We love you so much Bubba Lu!


mom & dad

New Year

A year later...
Excuses for not blogging include the overwhelming feeling of 'where to start', I am not a good writer, too much to do...etc, etc. I feel sad I let a year, a very important year, pass by.
No longer will I let excuses get in the way of our family journal. I want Lucy to go back and read these posts years from now (hopefully the website does not expire).
Year in Review:
  • February 1st - Luceille Margaret is born @ 5pm weighing 6lbs, 15oz. A spitting image of her father - the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.
  • March - spent the month home with Lucy - a lot of time at the mall and Target :)
  • April - Lucy started daycare. This was a hard adjustment but up to this day we don't regret our decision. She really enjoys it.
  • May - Lucy & I fly to Florida to visit G&G.
  • June - Grandpa Gary & Grandma Leanne drive up from Indy to meet Lucy.
  • July - Trip to MI for a wedding. Grandma B drives back with us to spend the week. Also spent a night in Chicago - Half Marathon.
  • August - Back to MI to stay at Aunt Sarah's while dad & I took a golf trip to Boyne for our Anniversary.
  • September - Drove to Minneapolis to stay with friends - Mall of America! Flew to AZ for Aunt Lucy's memorial.
  • October - Very busy crawling! No trips.
  • November - Flew to MI for Aunt Sarah's baby shower.
  • December - Drove to Indy to meet Grandma Sharon.

It has been so much fun watching Lucy learn and grow. We make it a point to enjoy every moment because we know how quickly they do grow up.

11 months later..

Until next time....

38 Weeks

Thought I better get a post in before baby!
Room is ready...

I'm SO ready...

I don't think Scoot is...

And Brian..he's been surprising cool as a cucumber - he'll make a great coach as long as he does what I say.

Overall, pregnancy has been great - I could do without the swollen feet, hands, hot flashes, tossing and turning, etc, etc. But we're almost there..stay tuned!!

Fall Update

We've had some awesome weather!
Brian & Scoot took a trip to South Dakota with his buddy Chris and dog Drake. She did awesome & made papa proud.
I've been trying to get Lucy's nursery ready - it's been so much fun.
Heading to MI this weekend for my shower - so excited to see friends and family. My parents fly in today. Can't believe I'm going into my 3rd trimester, time does fly. I have been feeling great and hope I can say the same on the next post!!
I know, all these pics are of the dog but it's her time to shine! Soon enough she will be on the back burner..sorry Scoot.

This was just this morning on Lake Winnebago.

20 Week Update

Scoot left for training Thursday for 5 weeks. I'll admit, it was bitter sweet. I cried when she left but then once I began to think about all the things I can get done while she's gone, I felt some guilty excitement.
She is learning to be a duck retrieving machine.
Her first trip is late October with Brian to South Dakota - she's going to love it!
On the prego front, I'm just over 20 weeks. The biggest challenge these days is finding something to wear & the energy to exercise!! Otherwise, the baby is doing great and right on schedule, we couldn't ask for a better pregnancy.

Here are Brian & I as babies. It's hard to say what ours will look like but one thing is for sure, there will be no shortage of rolls...

Attn Moms - what are some of your fav baby things??

Good Bye 1st Tri

That was the longest 3 months of my life. Not really but when you're counting down for something time seems to move sloooow. We found out I was pregnant on June 8th. Right after the "+", Brian said, you better go get a blood test to confirm. When I called for those results, the lady said "it's definitely positive".
By then I was 6 weeks and had no symptoms. I don't remember exactly when the nauseaus-ness all began but it wasn't long after - it was morning, noon & night. I always thought morning sickness was wake up, puke, and go about your day...I wish it was.
Now into week 15, I feel a lot better. According to "What to Expect..." a symptom in month 4 is:
Continued Absentmindness
(Brian strongly agrees I have this symptom, I don't think I do)
I'm no longer able to comfortably button my pants. A part of me wishes I was one of those women who are happy to surrender their bodies to the baby growing inside, but unfortunately I'm not. The weight gain has me nervous. I'm still running 2-3 times a week but my eating habits have changed drastically. I have lost all control!

We have our next ultra sound 9/10 & if baby cooperates we'll find out the sex, I can't wait!!
Here I am at 15 weeks, I haven't been on the scale in awhile but I'd say I've gained close to 10...we'll see next week at the dr...stay tuned!!
Due Date 2-05-10
Jeeze that seems like a long ways away.
