...after a long day of eating milk, sleeping, burping, and filling diapers, Mom and Dad want me to have a little "tummy time" to exercise my back and neck. I gladly oblige, but I don't think it's what they were thinking.

Merry Christmas!

This is my very 1st Christmas and Mom & Dad are showing me how to do it right. Our house is decorated-I even have a pink stocking that is hung next to Hailey & Melias' on the fireplace. Mom & Dad said any friends and family that are feeling healthy should come over and visit with us during this special time. Below you can see us buying our Christmas tree. I promise that really is me under that blanket-Mom & Dad just wanted to make sure I stayed nice and warm.

What A Day!

It was a big day for me today. Today was Mom's birthday. It was also my first Thanksgiving. Dad made Mom a chocolate cake with banana frosting.

Mom tells me that this doesn't happen every year, but during special years (such as the year I was born), she shares her birthday with Thanksgiving. She told me that Thanksgiving is a time that you remember things you are grateful for. I am grateful that Mom and Dad are not going to take me shopping tomorrow. Mom is grateful that after 30 birthdays, she finally gets to have a daughter. Dad is grateful that Mom makes tasty pies.

For my present to Mom, I allowed her and Dad to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner together while I slept peacefully.

Morning at Mimi's

In celebration of Katie's birthday tomorrow, her friend Heidi has traditionally taken her to breakfast at Mimi's Cafe.

This year, however, two others attended:

I had a bath tonight. I love it when Dad washes my hair with the soft baby sponge. But when Mom wasn't looking, Dad "styled" my hair.

Lucy is so proud of her Daddy

Evidently before I was even born, my Daddy had to take this BIG test that said if he could work as a real psychologist or not. Well, the results are in . . . and he passed!!! Mommy and I are both very proud of him.

Breaking News!

You may find this hard to believe, but my parents have informed me that they actually had a life before I was born. Something about my Dad serving a mission in Australia, my Mom living in Taiwan, hiking, triathlons and more schooling between the 2 of them than I can even count. Anyway-here are some of the highlights I've learned so far:

My parents were married (that's probably a good thing), August 5, 2006 in the Provo LDS Temple
They got to go on a cruise in the Southern Caribbean shortly after their marriage with my Aunt Jayna & Uncle Ryan and Aunt Becky & Uncle Joe.
My big sisters, Hailey and Melia, live in New York and my Mom and Dad get to go visit them-this Christmas they will come visit us in Utah-I am excited to meet them.
Mom got to go to Hawaii and Kentucky for work this year. The Doctor says that I started living in my Mom's tummy when she was in Hawaii, but Dad wasn't there so we think he needs to re-do his math.

Mom and Dad served as Church Humanitarian missionaries in July of this year. They went to a far away place called Albania for a week and taught professionals there how to work with children with disabilities. Mom said I was there too because she was 5 1/2 months pregnant with me at the time. I guess it is rare for a missionary to be pregnant.
Well, my head is still spinning from all this news. I will do my best to keep you posted about these two as more things happen. Right now though, Mom and Dad say parenting is their biggest adventure yet!

Mom and Dad hope the scriptures will become more interesting to me in the future...

40 Weeks: Worth the wait!

The whole time Mom was pregnant with you, she would dream about how wonderful it would be to hold you on the outside. Dad felt a little left out during the whole process and he is so grateful to now hold his little Lucy. What a piece of heaven you are to both of us. We love Lucy!

I have LOTS of people who love me! Top of the list (well at least 2nd to my Mom and Dad) are my Grandparents. Above I am with my Grandma and Grandpa Sampson when I am 2 days old. Then you see me with Grandma Steed when I am just a few hours old. Grandpa Steed was out of town when I was born, so you see me with him when I am about 8 days old. Do I have them wrapped around my finger or what?

Then I got to see my Great Grandma and Great Grandpa Steed! I think my Great Grandma Steed could have held me all night long.

Above I am with my Great Grandma Sampson. I think her red leather jacket is very stylish!

How does this work??

We have this swing in the living room-it rocks back and forth, has a spinning mobile, and music. You sat in it for the first time today, but we're not sure how you felt about it.

Grandma thought that you might have had something under your right leg. But you didn't.

Mom repositioned you in the swing. It didn't make any difference.

Today you took a tubby in the kitchen sink (thanks, Dad!)

then put on your first Sunday dress:

Welcome Lucy!

Lucy was born today...

Born 11/7/07, at 2:11 pm

Weight 7lbs 11oz.

7th grand-daughter for Grandpa and Grandma Sampson

11th grandchild for Grandpa Dave and Grandma Kay

That's a LOT of 7s and 11s!

I'm going to take this kid to Vegas!

Because she arrived via c-section, we all knew when she was coming...well, Lucy was a little surprised! After a little supplemental oxygen, though, she was just fine.
