5 months goes quick!

Since Lucy's been born, I really haven't had much of a chance to blog. I really had high hopes of being a better blogger and record keeper for Lucy, but it didn't pan out. My friend Jenny did a really amazing job of documenting her son's first year of life and I told myself I was going to do that, but then I never did. Here is a little snap shot, nonetheless. Jenny, get ready to eat your heart out with my creativity....


1 Month Old

2 Months Old

3 Months Old

4 Months Old


Lucy is now almost 5 Months Old. I don't know where the time goes. She is so sociable. She loves being around people and is generally fine if she is being held. She loves to suck her thumb (which is new for us since Annie was obsessed with her paci). She doesn't look super Mexican, as you can tell. Everyone asks how Annie is around her. Answer: She couldn't be more thrilled about Lucy. She asks where she is every morning (right after asking where her Daddy is). She is so gentle around Lucy and really likes to "keep her safe". Since Lucy has been born we have been able to see Annie's protective nature come out more. Everyone also asks if they are more similar of different. Hard to tell at the ages they are, but what we do know....

Annie is a thinker. She really enjoys figuring things out and doing things "all by self". Hard to tell, but she seems like an achiever type, maybe just a typical first born. She is not concerned with what others are doing, she just wants to do her thing. She is very independent. She likes to decide things for herself. She is not very sensitive (although she has her moments as a 2 yr old). She gets over things fast. She remembers everything. She LOVES her daddy and they seem to be alot alike. :) She is very cuddly if it's her idea. Anytime you ask her anything she says "okay". She is also a rock-collector and LOVES every stuffed animal that has ever existed. On any random day she is either doing a puzzle, reading books, or nurturing stuffed animals.


Lucy already seems to be more of a people person than Annie. She thrives when people are in her face. She loves the camera because a person is usually holding it. Annie always seemed more interested in how the camera worked and holding it herself than smiling. Lucy is not very serious, she is easy to make smile even when she's upset, but if you should find her to be upset she will make you go deaf with her shrill cry. She is zero to sixty. She is on or off. She is definitely more sensitive to her environment than Annie ever was. She is still eating in the middle of the night because she has trained me to obey her shrill cry. (I know, I know...It's on my to-do list.) She is bubbly, chubby, and very insistent when she is hungry. She is still pretty great at sleeping anywhere since she loves to be held. She is my lap baby.

Two things in common to both of my girls: 1) Both of my girls were super chubby babies topping the charts. 2) Both don't look Mexican at all, but we hope they get scholarships anyways.

As far as me and J go, we just celebrated our 5 yr anniversary! We got a little time away together, thanks to J's parents!

I have been starting to sew again, which has been a great creative outlet for me! J's sis, Brittany inspired me to refashioning tshirts into kid dresses (like the green A&M one she made that Annie is wearing above). Been loving that and just ordered a pattern to make some booties! I will keep you updated and maybe post the result!

J is still loving his job and doing great things in Austin. I can't believe how well suited he is for his job. I am so proud of him. When the website is up and running, I will post the link!

I just found a bunch of videos of Annie learning new tricks from the last few months, so I am going to be posting those over the next month or so as I get the chance to upload them!

Sally,

Lucy is so cute! And I love your T-Shirt dress. On my current "to do" list is "learn to sew..." :)

We need to hang out! I'd change Henry's name to Enrique if it would get him a scholarship.

Sally said...

Morgan! These are SO easy to start with! Bring over some elastic and an old t-shirt and we'll go to town!

Consider my heart eaten out by your creativity! Lucy is ridiculously cute! Looks JUST like you- I mean, I used to think Annie looked like you, but as an infant... I think Lucy is your mini-me! Now, would you PLEASE blog more so your out-of-town friends can see pictures of you and the fam more often ?! Too much to ask?! :) Love you...
