Ladies and Gentlemen,
As we enter the final stretch of Lucille Carolyn's first year, we cannot thank you enough for your continued prayers and support. The Goose is now 26.5 inches and 14 pounds, 11 ounces. Please continue to pray that she packs on the pounds!
As this will be a shorter update (bigger one to come for her 1 year!), we thought we'd tell you about a song we made up about New York City using the Alphabet that has become one of Lucie’s favorites. When we sing it, we almost always get a smile (remember she can be quite stingy with those).
A few years ago we heard a children’s song about the alphabet and we used the tune from it for this song. For a few of the letters, we make the phonetic sound of the letter a couple of times too. It’s hard to explain, but we wanted to share it with you anyway!
A is for Apple, the Big Apple
B is for Brooklyn, B-B-Brooklyn
C is for Chrysler Building, Chr-Chr-Chrysler Building
