Soooooooo Typical!

I've attempted to sit and update for some time now.  I've been slightly busy.  So much to tell you!

Well, first and foremost...Amelia became a big sister on November 15th, 2011.  Amelia was not terribly thrilled about the whole thing.  For one thing, Mom was gone for 5 days, when I came home -- I wasn't a whole lot of fun (tired and recovering from the c-section) AND I brought with me this little screaming, crying and attention grabbing critter that we all keep oohing and ahhing over.  Seriously?

 Lucy Rebecca

Lucy Rebecca is healthy and strong.  She is as typical as they come -- from the get-go!  Lucy is in the 90% for weight and 95% for height.  Her babbling, eating and movement is right on target in every text book and chart.  I am in awe of her.

 This is Lucy at about a month old.  
I couldn't believe the smiles she was giving me.  
This was taken after her first holiday party.

We've had our ups and downs, but 4.5 months later -- cut to today, I'm standing in Amelia's room speaking with her OT.  Amelia is sitting at her little table and chair and I come in and plop Lucy on her table, sitting.  So the girls are eye to eye and the OT and I are thing, I hear Lucy start wailing and I look down to find 3 of Amelia's fingers in Lucy's mouth!!!  Amelia wants so much to interact with her baby sister, she's just not sure how yet.  I keep telling them both "just wait, you're going to be BFF's!"

  The gorgeous Amazing Amelia

  Amelia's 6th birthday party at school.
 Amelia turned 6 on January 24th. 
 I can't believe what a big girl she is.  She is growing up so fast. 

My beautiful girls
This was taken a little over a week ago.

Here's a wonderful article.  I hope Lucy is this devoted to her sister one day.

So glad you updated! I was wondering how Amelia was handling the transition. :-)

I'm so glad I checked in to see if you were posting again. Great pics. They will learn to play nice. Remember the young girl from Haiti that was at RM House when we were all there? She finally stopped being shy and found a way to play with Callie even though they didn't speak the same language. They'll get there my friend. Congrats on your beautiful family.
