Baby Lucy (7QT's)

It's Seven Quick Takes time over at This Ain't The Lyceum. Go say hi to Kelly and check out the other Seven Quick Takes posts.

The old wives' tales got it right.

We got to bring her home to her big brother on Wednesday.

I never thought I'd have a need for pink in my life, but we had a girl and suddenly the yellow and green "gender neutral" stuff we had the first time around just wasn't going to cut it. The grandparents came to the rescue and went shopping.

Just a few things about Lucy: 

If she doesn't want to eat, she doesn't. The whole "unwrap the baby, rub her hands and feet, etc" method does not work on this girl.

She has strawberry hair.

Doesn't flinch at the sound of the NutriBullet blender. She's my crunchy green smoothie baby, and apparently got use to the sound of it in utero.

Matthan got to meet Lucy when we brought her home. It was pretty hard to compete with Finding Nemo and pretzels, but I think she captured his attention for a minute. :)

Matthan has treated Lucy as if she's always been here. The first night he said "Baby Lucy, come watch Finding Nemo with me." He thinks it's funny when she squirms and says "Bless you Baby Lucy" when she sneezes. He checks on her throughout the day and gives her kisses.

See? In serious need of some pink around here.

Sweet big brother wanted to hold Baby Lucy.

We made the trip to the pediatrician today. She was weighed, measured, prodded, and deemed perfect in every way.  

Finally got a bow on this girl.

She slept on the way there, and on the way home. So Daddy put her down for a nap in her bed when we got home. :)
