Getting to know Lucy

Lucy has light brown hair, and grayish blue eyes...which both might change. She also looks like she might have dimples. Lucy is a pretty good sleeper as far as babies are concerned. About 5 out of every 7 nights she will sleep at least one 4 hour stretch, and if I'm very lucky she'll sleep two of them with a feeding in between. Unfortunatly I usually only get to enjoy one of those four hour stretches, because James has been waking up early lately. But at least it's something, and more than a lot of other moms get to enjoy. (No comment Sarah, I know you be hating on me right now. :D ) The other 2 out of 7 nights I get to feel like other moms, which is extremely sleep deprived. Last week she actually did two 5 hour stretches with a feeding in between. That night was heaven. And for some reason I was still tired when I woke up. So weird. It was Stephen's birthday on Sunday, and we had a little get together. I forgot to take pictures, except for this one. But it's a pretty good one in my opinion.
He turned 30, and I'm next. I'm so not ready to leave my 20's behind. There's not much I can do though.

What One Month Looks Like

One month ago on April 1st Lucy Amelia Taylor was born. (I forgot to say what her name was in my last post. oops.) At my baby shower (again, I'll have to post pictures later. Wow, I have a lot of catching up to do) I was gifted this pretty neat onsie set. Each onsie has a number 1-12 on it with the word month underneath. Every month you take a picture to mark their progress. Here is what Lucy looks like at 1 month.
