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.

I love that picure of Lucy and Stephen--classic! I told Karl, "How many of us have a pic of daddy and baby both asleep?"

What a perfect birthday present! A sleeping baby on the chest; it doesn't get any sweeter than that!

Oh, and so you know, I've come to realize that my 30s are a lot more awesome than my 20s. I like myself WAY more at 30 than I ever did at 20. I've long stopped worrying much about what other people think of me. I've gotten a pretty good idea of my talents and interests and now get the joy of pursuing them without worrying what other people might think, or if they'll help me fit in with this group or that group. I feel less competitive and insecure now than I ever have, and I have better and deeper friendships now because I've largely stopped comparing myself to others and have embraced my strengths and weaknesses, which really frees me up to work on the bad, appreciate the good, and love others without trying to be like them or feeling bad because I'm not them. And because my "career" is set in stone (three girls to care for), I've stopped agonizing over what could have been or might be (for the most part) and am simply trying to do my bet at what's in front of me. Trust me--30 is where it's at!
