We had a great time last weekend at Lucy's shower. It was so nice of Brian's co-workers to give us such a nice welcome home for our girl. One of the highlights was Lucy interacting with a little five year old girl that was there (pictured). Ellie was so fascinated with Lucy and was by our side the entire evening. She looked at me one time and said "she is the cutest little girl I have ever seen." Of course my heart melted. It was also funny when Ellie said, "I have never seen a baby with black eyes." Don't you just love the raw honesty of children? We had a great time and feel very blessed that Brian works with such a thoughtful and supportive group of people.
Other updates....Lucy is "creeping" now. (This is when she scoots on her belly...very close to crawling.) She continues to sleep like a champ and laughs all the time. As you can see from the video in the last post, she LOVES her music. She had the best behavior we have ever seen from her at church last night (not that she is really ever bad in church). She loves to laugh and flirt with the people around us. Over the weeks, lots of people have come up to us after church because they want to meet Lucy. When we were walking through the parking lot last night someone yelled "Hi Lucy" from their car as they were driving away. A very popular girl!
On a different note, our poor girl has had numerous doctor visits lately; she had to see an ENT as she had lots of ear wax buildup, as well as fluid in the ear. For anyone who has ever had a Dr. digging around in your ear, you can probably empathize with what Lucy went through; it was a very upsetting experience for her, and heart wrenching for ma-ma. In addition, some blood work has shown that her thyroid levels are high. The Dr. is hoping that this is from malnourishment when she was in China and that the problem will fix itself with proper nutrition. For now, we are monitoring it and will get another blood draw in a few weeks.
Life is good, and will be even better if we get a COLTS win next weekend!!!! Love and good thoughts to all of you....
