I Wuv Woosy
I wuv Woosy. Translation: I love Lucy. That's what I've been hearing around here these days. And even more common than that is, "Where's Woosy? Where's Woosy?" Graham is so concerned about his little sister. He is always looking for a "blankie" to cover her up and her paci to make her stop crying. It's quite adorable to see how smitten he is with the newest girl in the house.
Lucy arrived on 11/10/10 at 9:02 in the morning. After some difficulty getting the spinal to work in the OR(which scared me to death) and having to have a second nurse anesthetist come perform the procedure, we finally got to meet our baby girl. She weighed 6 lbs 13 oz and was 18 1/2 inches long. They were a little concerned about her breathing, so they monitored her closely until about 5:00 pm that evening when they finally decided that she would not need to go to the NICU! This of course meant that I finally got to hold her!
Life is not quite yet back to normal, but I'm sure we'll soon be settling into a routine. I haven't figured out how I will go grocery shopping with 2 kids under 2, but I guess I'll learn soon enough. I'm going to have to scope out Publix to see how all the other moms do it. I don't really think there is a place for two children in the carts!
We're so thankful Lucy arrived safely and so grateful to have another little kid to fill our home and our lives. We love Lucy. That's for sure.
(Sorry, I wrote this a few weeks ago and just forgot to post. I did go to the grocery store today IN THE RAIN with TWO KIDS. Thank goodness they give away free cookies. Otherwise I don't think we would have made it!)
