She's online!

The system goes on-line December 22, 2010. Human decisions are removed from strategic defense. Lucy begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 10:14 p.m. Eastern time, January 31st. In a panic, they try to pull the plug. 

Lucy decided to show some serious personality tonight.  It was incredibly fun and I find it hard not to keep her up all night doing tricks. :)

A Response to the Post Below, from Lucy

Note: I've had my in-house editor clean up my message to daddy. He's the only one that finds it amusing that I use a lot of z's and exclamation points in my first drafts.

Of course you guys did fine the first month. I slept most of the time.

Just wait until I can eat a meal without falling asleep. Then the true challenge begins!

We kept her alive for a month!

Lucy hit her one month birthday. She's no spring chicken anymore. She's seen some things. She's knows the score. She's been there. She's done that.

So long Mini... hello JUKE!

Got a new car tonight.  Traded in the Mini for a new Nissan Juke.  We needed the 4 doors but didn't want to lose the fun.  AWD was big for me too.  So far we're very happy with it (20 miles in).  :D

Lucy moved to her crib on Sunday night and is adjusting well.  She likes to eat every four hours and Sarah is being a real trooper and letting me sleep.  I went back to work this Monday so it's not laziness.  It's business!

She's very alert, aware and curious of everything these days.  We've seen a few fussy moments but nothing to complain about.  Still loving it.  She changes so much every day.  It's scary.  Speaking of scary... she shot a wet poop today that cleared four feet easy.  (probably should have warned you of upcoming poop story... oh well)  Sarah took the hit and had to do a load of laundry to boot.  Did I mention what a trooper she is?  ;)

Our busy weekend in video form

Lucy gets fussy

Sarah and I fondly remember the good 'ol days when Lucy was as quiet and peaceful as a lamb.  It may have only been three weeks, but one night of fussiness has sent us into serious planning mode.  And so far, we are winning the (hopefully) short fussiness battle of 2011.

Week in review

It's been a busy week and I haven't had much time to post.  Sarah's parents left Sunday and we've been on our own for a few days.  Here's a quick recap of what we've been up to...

My niece Karen and her boyfriend Matthew came over Friday night to meet Lucy and have a few beers.  She was the first of my side of the family to make it over and thus is the only relative I now feel bad about not buying Christmas presents.  :P

Mike and Jan Lastort came by Friday night as well and although they got in some Lucy time, it was nice that it actually felt like they came to see Sarah and me. :)

The Fishes (Chris, Christine, and Caroline) came over on Saturday and brought good karma to the Jets.  Their adorable one year old spent some fun times running towards or away from our dog Cypher while Chris and I drank some mugs of "daddy juice."  I hadn't seen Christine in a few years and was both encouraged and disappointed when she didn't have a cigarette to bum me.  She's been off them for a few years so maybe there's hope for me.  Oooooh! Be right back... I think I may have remembered seeing a broken Marlboro in between the console and drivers seat....

Hmmmm... nope... anyone know a good mechanic that can repair a torn out dashboard? ;)

Grandpa is on the Scene

Sarah's dad, Scott, hit town this afternoon and the rest of us (including his wife who he hasn't seen in weeks) is dead to him.  It's all Lucy, all the time. We had prepared for him being smitten by her charms.  Wait till she pukes on him, then we may get him back.  Hopefully he has the will to finish the list of chores we have scoped out.  Actually, last time he was out here, he was the one puking after a night at the Royal Mile Pub... so maybe Lucy has met her match.  :-D

A Lucy's Birthday Present

As if Lucy weren't enough of a gift, John gave me a beautiful pair of earrings to commemorate her birth. You can catch a glimpse of them here.

This is what happens when your husband turns into a big lump of sugar, in constant danger of melting at the sight of his daughter's nose or toes or drool. I'm not one to take advantage of this type of situation, but I do hope that his friends are aware of John's current state and protect him from others who might try to benefit from his weakened condition by, for instance, letting him pick up the bar tab repeatedly. Who knows what my besotted man will do next.

We present "Lucy Horned Frog O'Grady"

Badgers lost the Rose bowl in a helluva game. Sarah lost a bet on Lucy's middle name.  She shalt therefore be known as Lucy "Horned Frog" O'Grady.  That's bad mothering!  Ok... Ok... I'm just kidding.  Settle down Badger fans.  :-P

Lucy did watch the game, however, and thought the badgers should have just kept handing the rock to Montee Ball.  She also farted every time TCU's Dalton threw the ball.  She called it the "Angel Fart Jinx".  It didn't work.   Maybe next year. 

It was a big Saturday for Lucy.  She also got her first bath.  I buried the announcement down here in hopes that my friends would miss it.  I sound like an idiot talking her through it and don't need the endless hazing that I'm sure to receive. Pfffftttt.  The video will be in the video gallery in a few minutes (link is in top of the right side navigation - For you older folks... if you left click the link, it will automatically googles you to the youtubes).

We've been outsmarted

Lucy could not be fooled by a binky.  She knows synthetic when she tastes it.

She does however dig the baby bjorn Sarah got me for my birthday last July.  I should be able to make TWICE as many videos with both hands free!  Mwa haha!
