A Day in the Life of Lucy: 10 Weeks Young

A detailed record of a day in the life of Little Lucy?  While I write about every day with the Goose over on The Mouselet and Me, I don't really go into much detail.  Hopefully I can capture how a typical day with our girl goes, minutiae and all. 

We woke up for quick nightfeeds at 1am and 4:30am, so when 7:30 rolled around, Lucy was ready to get up for a real meal.  This girl likes to eat; insatiable and adorable.  30 minutes later she was ready to play!  We did our morning 'work out' and some tummy time.  She was looking extra cute in her oversized sleep suit (her fourth of the night after three previous spit-up and peepee soilings).

Dad woke up at 9 and took over Lucy duty so I could make some breakfast.  In the past week, she has discovered her hands and has been putting them in her mouth.  This morning was the first time she actually brought a toy up into her mouth and I managed to catch it on camera.  Uncle Rabbit (Bác Thỏ) and our girl have been down since the early days so it was good to witness a milestone reached with the assistance of that ole curmudgeon.  

By 9:15 Lucy was looking tired, so I put her down for a nap.  A short feed before her nap really knocked her out.  Amazingly, she went down for a solid couple hours. Way to go Lucy!

At 11:30 she was up and ready to face the day!  The peeper suit came off, diapers were changed and after a good meal, she played with Dad while I got ready for the day and ordered lunch.

By the time 1:00 rolled around, Lucy was ready for another nap.  I rocked her to sleep for this one in the sling before putting her down and quickly eating lunch.  She woke up at 1:20 and I was able to rock her back to sleep and took a rest on the sofa with her so she would sleep better.  Turned out hat we both needed a little shut eye!  Lucy woke up at 2:00 ready for her next meal.

After a quick feed, I got Lucy dressed, my bag packed and Lucy in a sling to head off to Gymboree for our weekly class.  I am so happy that Lucy finally likes the slings I made.  They are really comfortable for us and excellent for feeding discreetly on the go.  Lucy was not satisfied with our short feed (she prefers to take her time with meals, stretching them out to at least an hour) and continued to drink milk on the cab ride down to Gymboree.

By the end of our afternoon class, Lucy was exhausted.  Tears arose, food was demanded, and once her needs were met she promptly passed out.  I did a bit of grocery shopping before heading home.

Back in the abode, the little one was still 
 chasing dreams.  Cat napping and slowly taking down "dinner from 5 to 6:30, and took a power nap until about 7:15.

When she finally came around, we headed to the bedroom for our night time routine - bath time, some mirror time, massage, clean diapers, peeper suit on, and a short feed.  Lucy was out and in bed by 8:30. Phew!  What a day!  Can't wait to do it all over again tomorrow!
