But first, we needed dinner and more importantly a DRINK!!

We made it to the Washington County Fair last week. It was hot and humid so we skipped some animals. The smell plus the heat is a little much. The girls used to love the animals and not pay attention to the rides. Now they barely tolerate the animals and want to go straight to the rides.

Lucy Goosy turned 3 months on Tuesday. She is still sweet as candy. Except when she's screaming for reasons known only to her. Three months is supposed to be when colic starts winding down. And honestly it is. Very, very gradually. But we get longer glimpses of her as a happy baby girl and those are diamonds in the rough. An oasis in the Sahara. She coos and says "ah goo" a lot. So sweet. She recently learned to blow spit bubbles and is pretty proud of that.
Not sure how much she weighs or how long she is until our next appt. but she seems to be staying more skinny like Caroline. As long as she's happy and healthy, I don't care what percentile she's in!!

We didn't take a big vacation this year because : new baby!! But we were able to get away to Branson a few times. This past weekend my parents rented 2 cabins and my sister and her family and my family joined them there.
The girls talked my dad and Mark into bumper boats and go karts.
Mark also took them on the "Ride the Ducks" tour.
It was about 1000 degrees all weekend. Easily the hottest weekend of the summer. But we had a lot of fun and the girls couldn't wait to tell all their friends at school all about it!
Whoever said "The days are long but the years are short" must've been dropping their sweet baby off at kindergarten. Because that day is devastating. Heart wrenching. I've now done it twice and tears (on both our parts) and vomit was involved (on the kindergartener's part). But we have a week of school under our belt and it keeps getting better every day.

We also had to get shots and that wasn't fun for baby or mama.
It's funny to see the similarities and differences between the girls. Caroline was always a skinny baby and Margaret was a chunk. So far, Lucy is taking after Caroline. Then, of course, she got Margaret's (and mine) red hair. And she got her fair skin and eczema too. But it looks like she's going to have blue eyes like Caroline.
And what's different? Lucy is the only baby with colic. Which means hours of screaming and crying every night. We have tried several things: probiotics, swaddling, white noise, a fan, going outside, taking a warm bath, bouncing and rocking. It's better than it was for the most part. But for a while it was ROUGH!
But she is sweet as pie and cute as a button! We couldn't be more blessed or happy that she is ours!!

Miss Lucy was baptized Sunday. We asked my sister, Meredith and her husband, Dale to be her Godparents. We had a private baptism in the afternoon. It was just easier for everyone to attend then.
All 3 girls wore this gown at their baptism. Now I'll have it framed and hang it up somewhere.
