Life of Lucy Violet: Week 3...

I am just documenting the first 4 weeks of her life in detail and then will switch to once a month posts...life is crazy busy with 3 littles but so much happens in the first month, I didn't want to miss a thing (although I fear I might have given these are tardy but something is better than nothing, right...yes my future self will be thankful for anything I can remember now in my sleep deprived state!).

Highlights of Week 3:
Now here's a "few" pictures of week 3...

 Lucy's wedding attire arrived and we tried it on :)



Just so you know I do share her...she likes to sleep on daddy at night and I am most productive folding laundry, picking up, writing thank yous or blogging while she is in daddy's arms!

 Every morning, they ask to hold her...we get a lot of use out of that hoppy!

Lucy went with me to my PEO meeting and they threw her a very generous diaper shower.  We are set for a few months literally thanks to all the diapers we have been given over the last few months!  Scott especially loves that blessing and I do too :).  And the diaper cake is SO cute!

Getting ready to go...whenever we leave, we have to remember a change of clothes, pacis, burp clothes and a muslin blanket.  

...and of course lots of quality cuddles...there are never enough of these in a day.  I constantly am asking myself to enjoy, focus, and appreciate and then the end of the day comes and she is one day older and I think "Did I enjoy Solon, Vera and her enough to day."  Sometimes I wish there was more of me to give each one of them, I love them so much.  I know the older two are growing more independent which is good but I do feel guilty at times too...


If we have a home day, you better believe we spend time playing games - something I can do with all 3 of them.  A game of memory, crazy 8's or Go Fish anyone?

...where are we off to this time?

Family selfie at the drive-in...thank goodness for our van!  We would never have fit in the back of the SUV...

...I just couldn't help myself...she was there looking all squishy and I had to capture it :)

...and a 95 year age difference...imagine between their lifetimes how the world has and will change.  Great grandma Olive was smitten at first sight and well Lucy was happy in her arms (for a while anyway as long as she couldn't hear mommy's voice).  So glad they could meet...

Another week come and gone and 21 days of newness.  I think how did we ever live life without you little Lucy?  I can't imagine it...and yet we did but our family just feels so perfectly complete with you in it and we are so thankful...I count my blessings MANY times everyday!!!!
