Over the river and through the woods

Lucy, Marmee, and I have spent the past several days in St. Louis. My grandmother has been in a nursing home for about a year and my brother is in medical school up there. We stay at my brothers house in downtown St. Louis. I am so very thankful that Lucy gets to spend this special time with her great grandmother and they adore each other.

A typical day consists of about seven hours at the nursing home and Lucy must know that most of the people there need to see her sweet smile, she is the happiest baby. Lucy makes the rounds every morning to see the rest of the residents on the floor and brighten their day dishing out a healthy dose of giggles and coos. However, we spend the majority of our day getting some quality time in with marmee and great grandma. Lucy became a VERY good crawler this week and got into everything including great grandma's oxygen! She seemed to know exactly what she was not supposed to have.

We also enjoyed a visit with my moms two sisters and Lucy's second cousin Chloe.

The 9 hour drive does not even bother little Lu! She only got fussy for 30 min on the way home when we got stuck in Nashville traffic. As much as we like the bonding time we are happy to be home in our own bed!
