Daddy's Girl

Scott Reading the Grinch to Lucy

About 2 weeks ago Lucy decided that Scott is awesome and me not so much.  I tried to not take this personally, but I kind of did.  While I love seeing her love her daddy, it broke my heart that she would push me away and say, "no, no momma."  Only Scott could comfort her, pick her up, change her diaper, play with her.  She only wanted to sit on his lap, give him kisses and hugs.  

The fact that it even happened surprised me.  I guess I had been Lucy's comfort source so long, I didn't realize she was capable of suddenly switching sides.  Apparently this is normal.  Baby Center said so.  I have a tendency to think things will last forever so, I despaired that she would never want me again.  I guess as a parent, it is sometimes hard not be selfish.  I'm learning.  And things are now back to normal, with Lucy loving on both of us.  These last 2 days have been really sweet with Lucy.  She has wanted me to read to her, sit on my lap, and will come over for hugs and kisses.  But I'm sure this isn't the last we have seen of her favorites.  All my online research told me to beware the teenage years where girls love their daddies best.  I guess that means I need to have a boy, right?
