Lucy’s First Snowfall

We got snow here in North Georgia yesterday. It was just a dusting, but it was still nice to see it falling yesterday afternoon. Most of the school systems in metro Atlanta were closed today because of icy roads. Our road wasn’t bad, but Joe hit patches of ice on his drive to work, and my parents were iced in at their house in Tennessee.

I woke Lucy from her nap yesterday afternoon to take her outside while the snow was coming down. She really could have cared less, but I enjoyed it. She probably was wondering what was wet and landing on her cheeks. šŸ™‚

We had a little more than that accumlate. It’s nothing compared to what all of you Northerners get, but it was still fun … especially since I’m still on maternity leave and didn’t have to work!

On an unrelated note, documenting my day yesterday was quite interesting. It was good to see how much she ate, how long she slept and how many times I changed her diaper. I also discovered that it must just seem like she cries all day because she only cried for a couple of hours total from the time she woke up to the time she went to bed — less than an hour of which was during the day when I was here alone with her. Today, she took a 4 hour nap! I was impressed. I’ve read that there is a growth spurt at 6 weeks, which could be the cause. After that, we got in some tummy/back time on her playmat, where she slept for a little bit yesterday.

I really need to get her used to sleeping on her back so we can transition her into her crib. If the amount of time she sleeps on her playmat each day is any indicator, it’ll be a while until she’s sleeping as well on her back as she is now. šŸ™‚
