    Week Eight + Happy Thanksgiving

    Week 8

    Eight weeks have just flown by and Lucy is growing and getting more fun every day. She is becoming much more interested in the world around her - sometimes more interested in it than in eating her bottle. Yesterday, Lucy experienced her first Thanksgiving and her first holiday with the entire Schmitt family. Andy and Jennifer hosted the event in their home where we all enjoyed very tasty food. Lucy was happily passed around between Grandparents, Aunties and Uncles all day. Benjamin happily played with his cousins all day. It was a very nice holiday!

    Week 6
    Big brother Benjamin got in on the photo shoot this week. At first when we tried to take the photos, Lucy was a bit unhappy and cried anytime I set her down on the blanket. After a nice long nap on Mommy's shoulder (while I caught up on my book reading) and a big tasty bottle, she was ready to try again. I think the result is too precious!

    Week Five

    Five weeks old

    There is really not much to say about this week. Lucy's doing well and we've all recovered from our crazy past weekend. Some of my cousins from Illinois (Brad and Carla, Roland and Cicely) visited this Thursday and were able to meet Lucy. It is a shame we don't live closer to each other because it is really fun spending time with all of them.

    I don't know how much Lucy has grown officially, though I'd estimate her size to be just around 7 pounds by now. She's still in newborn clothing, which is a shame because we have so many cute outfits just waiting in the closet. I know she'll get to them eventually though.

    Benjamin and Lucy are still bonding. He gives her a bottle every now and then and really enjoys coming home from school and telling her about his day. I have not ever heard him resent her or utter any negative words about her being here. He truly is in complete love with her and it is wonderful.

    Familie Schmitt

    Lucy was baptized at our church this weekend where she was surrounded with family. It was a lovely day and our little gal was perfectly behaved throughout the whole ceremony. It was great to have so much family in town and we were happy to have the chance to spend a little extra time with some of the out-of-towners the evening before.

    When Zombies Attack...

    Zombie Benjamin

    Benjamin rocked his Zombie costume this Halloween. He even wore it while running his very first 5k (3 mile) race this past weekend. He is certainly taking after his Daddy in the running world and just loves running races. As a parent, there is no better feeling in the world than watching your child feel so incredibly proud of a major accomplishment. This is exactly what Mike and I experienced as they crossed the finish line together. He is already talking about his next race -- a true runner indeed!

    5k finishers!!
