November

Posted by Chelsea on Saturday Nov 28, 2009 Under Toddler

I can’t believe it’s been a whole month since I posted last!  Time is flying by!  We’ve also been pretty sick in this house this month. I *think* we’re all finally better.  I got sick first with the stomach flu, then Lucy got croup, and then I got bronchitis (which is adult croup).  Bothe Lucy and I still have a cough but we’re much better.

In the last month Lucy went from being a baby to a full fledged TODDLER.  She walking more than she’s crawling and she’s TALKING.  Her favorite words are “COOKIE”, “balloon”, “cheese”, “cracker” (do you see a trend?), “Daddy” (not Dada anymore), “Mama”, and “uh oh”.  She’s also says “Thank You” and “I get it.” Which if you know Lucy-fits perfectly.  She’s little miss INDEPENDENT.  She is just SO MUCH FUN.

She’s also learned a new sign-“Please”.  She can now sign “All Done,” “More,” “Light,” (which she says as well-normally she signs and says “Light” at the same time) and “Please”.

She’s now about 18 pounds and 29 inches tall.  She just grew out of her 6-9 month clothing and is in 12 month clothing.  Her feet are still teeny tiny at size 3.

Now the reason everyone checks in-PICTURES!

Here’s Lu in her winter coat:

Lu and I went to Seattle for my birthday. We met up with a friend and had a girl’s weekend. Here’s Lu at dinner the first night:

I’m part of a birth board where I talk to other Mom’s who were due in October 2008. While in Seattle we had a chance to meet some of the Mom’s and babies. Here are all the babies together.

They were all born within a month of each other-Lucy is the oldest.

Here are some other pictures from our weekend in Seattle:

And then some from Thanksgiving.

We also got a video of her on the rocking horse that Gram and Pop got her for Christmas last year. She LOVES it.

Halloween!

Posted by Chelsea on Wednesday Nov 4, 2009 Under Toddler

Sorry, I’m a bit late with getting these posted-I got VERY sick on Halloween and finally just recovered.

Here’s pictures from Lucy’s second Halloween =D

At her school party:

At Mommy’s work parade:

She totally loved getting candy and putting it in her bucket!

Photobucket

She’s only played with her candy and hasn’t eaten any. Actually she won’t eat any because I just donated it to get shipped to soldiers overseas. She had fun playing with the crikly wrappers!

Photobucket

At Daddy’s Work:

Photobucket

With her friend Aiden (he’s a puppy who didn’t like his ears):

She is SUCH a girl and LOVES her costume. When we get it out she gets all excited. I foresee a lot of this costume in our future 🙂

And just for fun, some other cute pictures:

Eating Mommy’s Spaghetti:

Photobucket

She really likes it:

Photobucket

Like, alot!

Photobucket

And now she’s “All Done” (this is the sign for All Done):

Photobucket

Here she is playing in the sweater I made her:

And, this is tonight-showing off her mad spoon skills:

GIVE ME MORE MOMMY!!!!

Lucy’s vocabulary has just taking off! She now can say “Ma Ma”, “Da Da”, “nigh nigh” (for night night), “ca” (for cat), “eef” (for teeth), “oot” (for foot), “cow”, “eep” (for sheep), “pig”, “doh” (for door), “all done” or “done”, “up”, “down”, and “DOE” (for her favorite food AVOCADO!). Oh and “IES!” for her real favorite food COOKIES!

She’s getting REALLY good at feeding herself with a spoon. Multiple teachers at daycare have mentioned how good she is at this. She’s also now in the Toddler Room at school. No more infant room. She naps on a cot and it’s about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. She also eats a little table with little chairs (no more high chair) and doesn’t get a bib at daycare anymore (and boy do her clothes show it).

Lucy still crawls more than walks but just this week she started actually taking steps unassisted at daycare. She’s been doing it for us for a few weeks now but not at daycare. Now she is and I bet we’ll have a full on walker VERY soon.

Lucy is such a good girl and such a joy. She just gets more and more fun. I love seeing what she’s going to do next!
