Two Busy Weekends!

Posted by Chelsea on Wednesday Jun 17, 2009 Under Infancy

Wow have we ever been busy! Work is busy for both of us and then we’ve been out of town the last two weekends. We had fun but I’m really excited to have a weekend at home!

Two weekends ago we drove down to Monterey for Shaun’s first mountain bike race. He did a 2 man 8 hour race where he and his teammate traded off every hour or so. Lucy and Mommy were the pit crew.

It was exhausting!

We had a blast and Lucy was PHENOMENAL!

Here’s some pictures of Lucy and Daddy playing:

She’s got mad balancing skills:

No REALLY!

Last weekend we went camping again and Lucy discovered that she LOVES beer!

(we didn’t give her any-it was just a funny picture)

Clowning around in the tent (she loves sticking her tongue out right now):

Hanging out with Daddy around the fire:

Walking the Plank!

Playing on her mat-she amused herself for 30 minutes at a time-this girl LOVES nature! She played with a leaf for a good 10 minutes.

On a hike-Lucy slept on the way up. We stopped by a beautiful Manzinita tree-too bad the entire group wanted a picture at the same time!

Photobucket

It was huge and beautiful:

At the top-Lucy just woke up

Oh and Daddy gets her on the way down. The good news? Mommy wasn’t sore from hiking 5 miles, half of that with Lucy on the front of her going up. YAY!

Photobucket

It was too cute-Lucy was testing her voice as Daddy walked down hill with her. She thought it was hilarious that her voice changed when Daddy went over bumps.

With our friend Joy:

This one is too cute to pass up:

Daddy practiced on his unicycle (shhhh….he’s holding on to a rope)

And that’s it for pictures đŸ™‚

She’s still not crawling (thank you lord!) but is scooting all over the place! She’s also started babbling with consonants a lot more and we’re getting many “Da Da” “La La” “Ya Ya” but no “Ma Ma”. In time, right? She’s also loving feeding herself and her pincer grasp is really coming along (picking things up with her forefinger and thumb). Oh and walking with assistance? She’ll do that all day and night if you let her. And, she’s a dancing fool! We have to get video.

36 Weeks Old!

Posted by Chelsea on Monday Jun 1, 2009 Under Infancy

Holy moly-technically Lucy has been out of my body longer than she was in my body! The first 2 weeks of a pregnancy are actually the egg just being released and then fertilized and since I delivered at 37 weeks, she’s been out longer than she was in.

WOW does time ever fly! In the last week Lucy has gone from standing (with support) to walking with support. She’s been standing with support since December and she started pulling up on Mommy and Daddy about a month ago. She would take a step here and there but nothing consistent. Now she’s taking all sorts of steps and even walked from the living room to her bedroom yesterday (with Daddy’s help) to get her diaper changed. We got a video of the first time she took multiple steps but I’m having technical difficulties. Hopefully that will be posted later this week-maybe with another video showing how much she has progressed in the last week! Still no crawling! And we are A-OK with that. The longer she’s immobile the better!

She is getting more and more fun every day-she giggles, she has a great sense of humor, she’s making connections, but she’s also learning how to manipulate Mommy and Daddy! We’re working on not letting her, but it’s a learning experience and she probably will always manipulate us in some way!

Alright, what you’re all here for-Pictures!

And, finally, proof that she really does cry:

The separation anxiety is so bad sometimes that Mommy trying to take a picture of her means that Mommy is too far away-yes evidently 2 feet is too far away when it’s bad.
