A Christmas Prequel

Sorry it's been so long since we have had an update. I don't have any good excuses. I'm just lazy. So here's what's been going on in the Horton household... We put up our Christmas tree weeks ago and have yet to put any gifts underneath it. We took the picture for our holiday greeting card and have yet to order it. I can't even be sure that it'll get out before the New Year. Do you see a trend here?

Lucy had a doctor's appointment for her two month immunizations last Thursday. I did better than I thought I would. She had to have four shots and one oral medication. Poor baby, the gauges on those needles are huge! She suffered from all of the side effects of the medicines too, diarrhea, fever, and all around crankiness which lasted for two days. The doctor and I also discussed some issues Lucy's been having as well. She seems to be on food strike during the day and wants to make up with it at the all night buffet. Good thing for me she's a sleep-eater. Apparently this isn't all too uncommon and as long as she's consistently gaining weight she should be fine. Which leads me up too her three month stats... weight 14 pounds 11 ounces (85%), length 24 and 1/2 inches (75%), head circumference 16 and 1/2 inches (55%).

Here she is after her doctor's appointment. She felt so crummy all day long and found it hard to fall asleep and stay asleep. She really looks as if she's concentrating. So sad.

I love her Bumbo chair. Definitely a good investment. As long as she's in front of the television or has a toy in front of her she's good for a solid ten minutes, and in mommy-time, that's nearly a half hour. It's amazing how fast I can get things done when I actually do them!

Papa Walter was a huge help last week. Lucy and I had to run a bunch of errands, including getting Mazda-girl inspected and renewing her tags at the DMV. He came along as baby entertainer and I was very grateful.
