Then and Now....

What a difference 4 months makes! How much our little Lamb has grown.....




The Day we brought her home from the hospital... The night we got a full 45 minutes of uninterrupted sleep. I think I must have checked on her every 20 minutes that night.





And now....


This was a couple of weeks ago when she was 4 months old. Obviously, she no longer fits in the Moses Basket. She sleeps for 9 and 10 hours at night-- but I will admit I still check on her pretty frequently. Not every half hour though!

She is growing right before my very eyes-- yesterday Lu had her 4 month checkup (a little late-- since she is almost 5 months old!) and she did great! She even cried less with the shots than she did at 2 months. She did not run a fever and really was not all that fussy. Recently, she had a head cold and then she gave it to us. Honestly, she had a sweeter spirit when she felt bad then her Daddy and I. We were a bit convicted by our little daughter's sweet attitude for sure. Amazing what God uses, isn't it? 

She has grown to 14.3 lbs. and is a whopping 25 inches long!!! In the 80th percentile for her height and in the 50th for her weight. Let's just say, she has her Father's genes for sure. I'm not sure I was a long as she is until much later! All in all, she is very healthy and the Doctor was quite happy with how she is growing. We are enjoying her so much and she entertains us on a regular basis. 

Here's a little shot of her:

I can't believe how much Lucy has grown and how she gets cuter every day (which I didn't think was possible since she was so cute to begin with!) She sure filled up that Moses basket. What a gift she is...worth every headache and bout with nausea right?
