No Dairy!

Yea that's right. Poor little Lucy is having a really tough time. She wakes up in the middle of the night in pain cause she can't get the gas bubbles out. It's so sad. We give her gas relief drops and they help but not enough. She works and works and works it out and she has had a blow out the last 3 mornings. Anyway, last night was especially bad so this morning I called her pediatrition and after a series of questions and answers I was told to cut out all dairy for 2 weeks and see if that makes a difference. So, here goes nothin. But seriously, look at this face! How could I not do whatever I needed to make her feel better....

Anyone with good dairy free recipes? Let me know!

I find this hilarious, Lucy does this almost every time we wake her up. She gets in atleast 2 or 3 of these before she's really ready to eat.

Plus, look at this mad face! Sad but a little hilarious too! I hope that doesn't make me a bad mother.

Lucy's Blessing

This is a little late but we blessed Lucy earlier this month, on the 4th. It was really amazing. Brady did an incredible job. She was really good, she didn't cry at all! Afterwards we had friends and family over to our house to celebrate. Here are some pictures of the day.

Here is Lucy in her blessing dress. It is the same dress that I wore along with my 3 other sisters and Lucy's cousin Kaitlyn. I love it.

Here we are happy and enjoying the company.

Then we passed her off so Grandma George could hold her. She looks like she's fightin' somethin fierce and guess what, she was.....

Grandma had to pass her back because Lucy had a HUGE blowout, so bad we had to give her a bath! So then she ended up in this outfit :) It was so funny!

I guess it's time for a new post. I can't believe I have even found the time to post one! I am loving being a mother but it feels like by the time I feed Lucy, change her and she is ready to go back to sleep I only have and hour (maybe 2 if she eats fast and I'm lucky!) until she's ready to do it all over again. That is assuming she sleeps through her whole nap. I'm not complaining because generally she really is great baby, we have been blessed, but it's definitly a change, a good one :) Anyway, I have been doing Babywise with Lucy. I absolutly LOVE the schedule that it keeps her on, I have NO IDEA how anyone could do it without one. I would go insane. She has recently started to cry bloody murder sometimes and we are working on helping her learn to put herself to sleep so that she will sleep through the night. We are doing it but it is not easy. Please, anyone out there that has gone though this, I need reinforcements and support. Any advice or support.....Thanks. Here is a pic of Lucy.
Sometimes she gets in her PJ's and waits for Brady in our big bed. Haha. It is adorable!
