Like Father Like Daughter!

So, I am a pretty consevative when it comes to alot of things, but parenthood has forced me to step out of my comfort zone and face the fact that not all Little Girls will be a" Little Lady" all of the time! We have been feeding Lucy oatmeal in the evenings at a desperate attempt to get her to sleep through the nights, (atleast 6 hours) so I can get my sanity back and feel like a rejuvinated woman! (I know poor, poor, Kristen your thinking... it's not that bad. I am just looking forward to a restful night, probably won't happen I am told until we're done having kids and they are teenagers, but I am HOPEFUL!) So, oatmeal and sweet peas were on the menu last night, and she had not had a BM in almost 24 hours And I knew it was coming... and it did! Like montezumas revenge! Straight into the shower we went!
So, prior to the blow-out she had been "passing gas" alot... So much that when it was family nap time on Sunday afternoon Ben and I were entertained for atleast 20 min listening to our sweet little lady rip them like a pro!
My sister sent me home with all sorts of books from Lucy's Book Shower in August, and one of the books was: "The Gas We Pass
The Story of Farts" by shinta cho. If you haven't had the chance to read this book to your children or just for yourself.... GO GET IT! This book had me rolling on the floor! Lucy was entertained and so was I. Enjoy!

Hey Kristen- I had to come check out your blog. Your little Lucy is adorable! I didn't know you were in west Virginia. I bet that's been an adventure! It was so good to hear from you- sounds like you are loving life!
