Some More Firsts!

For the past month, during the middle of night feedings (which don't happen too often, only a couple times a week) I have been able to lay Lucy in her bed and she will put herself to sleep. Well today I thought I would try it for nap time. Lucy finished nursing and she was asleep, so I thought, when I laid her in her bed she woke up. So instead of picking her up I kissed her, told her I was leaving and Left the room. She cried for about 6 minutes , yes I watched the clock the entire time, and then she fell asleep. I couldn't believe it. I hope we can do this everyday!

A cute story I don't really want to forget...
Jonathan and I brought Lucy to walmart with us the other night for a little grocery shopping. I refuse to take her by myself, so we went as a family. I carried Lucy the entire time and she did great! We told her if she was good she could pick out a toy. So at the end of the trip we went to the baby aisle and Jonathan held up a bumble bee toy and a duck rattle and said Lucy which one do you want. Lucy first lucked at the duck then the bee, then the duck then the bee and then pointed her little hand towards the duck! She is so smart!!

On a sadder note, my dog Clementine died today. She was 14 years old. I wish I could say she died of natural causes but I can't. Apparently there is a pack of dogs running around, they attack my mom's 3 month old colt the other day and we had to rush him to the vet. He should be fine but Clementine was not as lucky. It makes me so angry to think of these mean dogs! Tonight Jonathan, Ryan (my brother in-law) and Ryan's Brother Aaron are on a dog hunt.
