Lucy has had a ton of visitors over the last month. Mommy and Daddy are finally recovering but we all had a great time. We LOVE visitors!
First up was her Cousin Tessa, Auntie LaLa and Uncle Willie. They flew here the day before Lucy’s birthday party-they got here early-before Lucy could even change out of her PJ’s. At first Lucy was like “who are these people?” Tessa on the other hand found all of Lucy’s loudest toys and joyfully played with them:
Eventually Lucy warmed up:
Later that day Mimi and Papa got here as did Uncle Jake and Aunt Amy. We all went out to dinner and had a great time-so great apparently that we didn’t get any pictures.
The next day was Lucy’s birthday party.
We had a big BBQ at the park with all of Lucy’s favorites-Steak, Chicken, Avocado, Cheese, and Pasta Salad (with Cheese-she REALLY likes Cheese!):
Mimi was there:
Unckie Jake and Cousin Tessa:
Lucy’s friend Aiden (all the way from Marin) and her other friend Sophia (from San Jose)-if you can believe it Sophia is 6 weeks younger than Lu and 2 weeks younger than Aiden:
All the babies and Mommies:
Aunt Marci and Uncle Dick came from Bakersfield:
Lucy’s Outfit (Mommy planned this outfit for months!):
Standing Unassisted (woah):
A very serious Lucy and Daddy:
A not so serious Lucy and Daddy:
Present time! Lucy LOVED opening presents:
Then it was cake time!
Her smash cake and cupcakes:
She wasn’t so sure:
But she did get dirty enough for a bath:
She finished up the day swinging with Cousin Tessa:
The next day Mommy got a matching outfit for Lucy and Cousin Tessa and then only got one (not so good) picture:
Here’s Lucy trying to escape!
Auntie Bug and Cousin Tessa (Tessa’s like “who is this Crazy Lady?”):
Lucy got a little overwhelmed with all the visitors which is very obvious in this picture with Mimi and Papa (it’s a GREAT picture of Mimi though-those are hard to get-she normally clams up in front of the camera):
Next up, Gram and Pop flew all the way from Pennsylvania to visit! The first day they were here we went to a pumpkin patch where Pop got the nice girl to let Lucy sit on a pony:
Next, Lucy visited the animals in the petting “zoo”. Pop and Gram were shocked by how much Lucy loved the animals-she wasn’t scared at all:
Then the requisite pictures with pumpkins!
They’re evidently great for standing:
Pop wanted a picture of Lu in the wheel barrel-ask and you shall receive!
Next we went to the beach, where Lucy walked like a big girl:
The next day we went to the park:
Where Lucy climbed though the tunnel (Mommy has been wanting her to do this for months!):
And we went down the slide-which Lucy LOVES:
The next day we went to Red Robin where Pop scored a balloon for Lu-she LOVED it:
We had so much fun!!! We hope everyone comes to visit again!
