Growing Up

Posted by Chelsea on Sunday Aug 16, 2009 Under Infancy

We’ve been working and playing hard! Lucy has gotten to be so much FUN! It’s not that she wasn’t fun before but she’s just blossomed. Her personality is coming out, she’s mobile, she plays with you and by herself, she giggles, she makes us laugh. It’s just a really fun age. Rather than a baby we have this little person in our house now 🙂 She’s growing up and fast. Part of me is excited and another part of me is sad. There’s only a little over a month left until she turns 1 and I can’t believe how fast it’s gone. She’s even in a big girl carseat now! She’s also GROWN. We had our 6 week weight check-in this past week and she gained almost 2 pounds in 6 weeks! The doctor was very happy. She’s now right at 17 pounds and just over 28 inches-the 10th and 50th percentile respectively. She’s now has 9 teeth! She’s got her two bottom front teeth, her bottom front molars (on each side), her left eye tooth, left canine, left upper front, right upper front, and right eye tooth. For a few days there she had her left upper front, left eye tooth, and left canine tooth and NO right upper teeth-it was a funny sight. Last night the 2 left uppers came in so now she looks a little more even 🙂

In the last month Lucy has had visitors, she went camping at the beach (and successfully did a 4 hour car drive), and went to the park-many, many, MANY times!

Here’s some pictures!

Discovering Sand (She wasn’t so sure at first-she wouldn’t go off her blanket, but once she did, there was no stopping her!)

We’ve got a busy few months coming up too. We’re heading to Hawaii, her first birthday, and lots and lots of visitors!

To Satisfy Mr. Titus :)

We’ve had a request for a picture of our bird, Azul. Azul has been living with us for 4 years now and can do many tricks. Here she is outside on her leash:
