|Sitting without help|
While Jason and Anton are under the house, Lucy, the girls and I will be hanging out in Long Beach. We're signed up to do the Great Bridge Crossing on Sunday. I'm still nervous about doing it, but I will DO IT - unless there is rain, and then my failure to get a rain shield for the stroller will be my excuse to hang out with Lucy in a warm cafe while Yumi & Jen walk the bridge. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Lucy's sleep patterns have calmed down since we went to Denver. She is getting up for one feeding a night, but waking up at least once more during the night. We try to let her soothe herself back to sleep, but she has started moving around in her crib and we find her tucked into the corners. She seems so happy sleeping against the wall of the crib. When she gets stuck she needs help getting back to the middle and that's when Mom & Dad come in handy.
The drooling has also toned down, and we haven't seen any evidence of teeth. They are on their way, this we do know.
She is a happy little bug, but has started to be plagued with diaper rash. We get it cleared up and then boom, it flairs up again. I don't want to think evil of our day care because they are fantastic, but I do wonder if they are changing her diaper on a schedule vs. being on poop alert like we are at home. Legally they have to change the diapers every 2 hours, but if she poops 45 minutes into a fresh diaper, is she sitting in it for an hour ? I know when they spot the poop, they change the diaper, but if it's just smelly and she seems happy do they leave it? Oh how I never thought I would put this much brain power in to the bowel movements of another human being.
I'm excited for the weekend and hope the girlfriends enjoy their time with Lucy. I hope I'm not pushing my happiness on them. I can't tell if I'm one of "those" mothers who thinks their baby isn't annoying. What I do know is that I genuinely LOVED spending time with my friends kids and think it was amazing bonding with them as tiny people. I want Lucy to have Aunties who can tell her stories of what she was like as a baby.
When she is older I will leave her behind on these rare weekends, but I'm rather looking forward to our girls weekend. Heck, we might even get tattoos!
When Lucy & cousin Jordan are older, I am hoping we can go for a girls weekends of our own, with Jordan's mom of course. I imagine tea parties, shopping and painting of toes - oh an talent shows. I hope Jordan and Lucy put on talent shows for us. Don't worry, you won't have to buy tickets...
