Easter Time Festivities

Last weekend we had lots of Easter fun with our whole family. On Friday we went over to Cory's parents and I made roast chicken with vegetables (my absolutely favorite dinner). Lucy LOVES her Grandma and Grandpa McElprang and they spoil her rotten! Unfortunately, I completely forgot my camera so I wasn't able to get any pictures. Sad. I'll make sure to remember it next time.

On Saturday my brother Dano and sister in law Linds invited us all over to their house for a BBQ. It is always fun when we get together with the Shreeve clan. There was yummy food, swimming, a potty disaster, and so much more! Lucy is starting to get to the point where she likes to play with other babies and since her, Brock, and Grady are all very close in age she has lots of babies to play with.

My sweet little LucyAnn had her first 2 teeth break through a couple of weeks ago. Her Grandma McElprang discovered both of them. She just looks so stinkin cute with those little chompers. I love getting a big toothy smile out of her. 

Can you see those beautiful pearly whites?

She is still getting bigger and bigger (in at least the 90th percentile for weight, head circumference, and length). I just can't believe how big our pork chop is getting! (Thanks Daddy for that flattering nickname)

But she is pretty dang proud of how big she's getting!

Another recent project is getting her on a consistent nap schedule and making her sleep through the night. We've taken the "cry it out" approach...tonight is night 4 and she is doing FANTASTIC! A week ago she was waking up every hour and a half and last night she went to bed at 8:30 PM, woke up once, at 4:00 AM, went back to sleep until 6:30 AM, had a bottle and slept until 7:40 AM. Now, a week ago she did have a cold and wasn't feeling 100% but seriously, going from waking up a minimum of 4-5 times a night to sleeping an 8 hour chunk...COME ON!!! Yes, the first night was tough (Daddy was on duty but I could still hear the cries), but each night has gotten easier and easier. I still wake up to check on her a ton in the middle of the night (just me being paranoid), but I see a whole lot more of this....
**Sigh** Such a beautiful thing.

Yep Goosey, I'm talking about you cute girl!

We adore this darling girl and, even though sometimes she drives me Nuts-O, I'm so very lucky to be her Mama!
