So, not only am I Lucy's mom, but I must also be the mother of all slackers as well! I've been needing to update this since November, but things aren't as easy as they used to be. The holiday's came and went and now Lucy is almost 3 months old. Our lives have been totally turned upside down. I never knew taking a shower or brushing my teeth would be so much work! Our "get-up-and-go" life has "got-up-and-gone" at least for the next 18 or so years! Actually, I've never had a job that has been more fulfilling, challenging, and amazing. Becoming a mother has been such a blessing. I still have days where I freak out when I realize that I/we are responsible for this little human.
Lucy is a very good baby. She hasn't laughed yet, but is trying really hard. She loves to suck on her hands and is starting to figure out how to use them. She likes to cuddle with mommy and talk with her daddy. Her eyes light up when he comes home and it makes my heart melt.
Micah is halfway done with his intern year. His current rotation is plastic surgery and he's really enjoying it. A lot of the surgeries have been reconstructions so he's able to use his artistic side. He is planning on competing in a half-Ironman in August and is enjoying getting back in a training routine. We just joined the local gym and it has been so nice for both of us to get back into our active lifestyle.
I am keeping busy with Lucy, our house and getting back into the gym. I've also met some other young mom's to get together with. Toledo is slowly becoming home and I'm still amazed at how much God blesses those who are obedient to him!
We spent Thanksgiving down in Mississippi with Micah's family and had a great time on Aunt Lee's farm. Here is a slideshow of a few pictures.
My family drove out from Colorado to celebrate Christmas with us. Here are a few photos.
I'll try to keep this more up to date in 2009. God Bless!
Thanks for visiting our blog!
We hope that through our blog you'll get a glimpse of our world. We'd like to think our life is exciting enough to document, but really we're just "average joe's" living each day, loving each other!
