Wow was this weekend ever busy! We had a blast though.
Saturday was pretty warm and we discovered that Lucy needs some clothes for warmer weather. I put her in a dress that her Aunt Kelly and Uncle Ricky got her. How cute is she?!?!?!
Shaun’s comment was that she just melt his heart everyday 🙂
Yesterday we went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. It was pretty cool. It wasn’t as big as I was expecting but we still had fun.
Some cool pictures:
These aren’t plants-they’re sea horses!
Lu just kicking back:
Cute Lu pics!
She went around yelling “FISHIE!!!!” It was very cute.
Daddy and a very tired Lu:
Here’s Lu this morning playing with a new toy I got her. It’s magnets and it sings the ABC’s. When you put the letters into the big thing you see there it says “B goes buh, B goes buh. Every letter has a sound, B goes buh”. She played with it in the cart yesterday at Target and listened to the ABC’s about 100 times.
This morning I woke up to Lucy singing “A B C D” hum hum “G” hum hum hum hum “L M N O P” hum hum hum “T” hum hum hum hum hum “Z!” I about crapped my pants. Seriously. The letters that she did remember were said in the correct place! That was INSANE! I have a kid-she’s no longer a baby!
Her 18 month appointment was this morning and here are her stats:
Height=30 3/4”-25th percentile
Weight=19 pounds 8 ounce-Less than 5th percentile
She’s trending exactly where she was at 15 months. She’s a peanut but she’s a just right peanut. She’s still pretty advanced in terms of language and talking and HOPEFULLY the tantrums will start to subside as she can communicate more. All in all, it was a great visit. She only had 1 shot and she cried briefly and then was okay. She was VERY proud of her sticker that she got.
In short, she’s awesome 🙂

I can’t believe that Lu is 18 months old. She’s become such a KID but she’s still our baby. We love her so much, she continues to amaze us every day!
The apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree it seems 😉
As you can see, she’s learned how to take off her diaper! She’s been sitting on her potty and can tell us when she’s going potty but she hasn’t put the two together yet. She has yet to go potty in the actual potty. 🙂
When she was nakey on Friday she peed in her plastic chair and then as I was cleaning the chair she was in the kitchen with me and started peeing again. She looked at the pee like “WHAT IS THAT?!?!? WHY IS THERE WATER coming out of me?” I explained to her that it was pee and that’s what she did when she went potty. I told her that her diaper catches it now and asked if she wanted to put her diaper back on. She nodded her head emphatically “YES” and went and got a diaper for me to put on her.
How cute is she?
We have her 18 months appointment next Monday. I’ll be sure to update you! And just because it’s my favorite picture, here she is again!

Wow! Mommy, Daddy, and Lucy have been sick the last 2 weeks. Daddy probably the worst but it has hit us all hard. Both Mommy and Daddy have missed 3 days of work over the last 2 weeks dealing with all the sickness.
We think it has passed us finally. Lu is now getting some teeth (we think the bottom canines-if it’s not that then it’s the 2 year old molars) and so she’s now grumpy, feverish, and tired. It never ends!
Here’s some healthy pictures!
Daddy and Lu playing with a green bean before dinner:
Lu in shoes and clothes that Mimi got her (thanks Mimi!):
With her first fat lip :(
We were at the park and I encouraged her to go down the big slide by herself and without laying down. Normally when she goes by herself she lays all the way down on her back. Last weekend she wanted to go down while sitting up and I totally encouraged it. Everything was fine until she got to the end and her shoe got caught on the slide and she face planted.
Thank god I was wearing a dark pink fleece because I got a lot of blood on me. She only cried for about 30 seconds and the bleeding stopped after about a minute or so. She did end up going down the slide multiple times after that, so she wasn’t too scared. It was still traumatic (for me) though She recovered much more quickly than I!
In her new Spring dress!
2 good shots of her GREEN eyes:
She’s still working on talking. Tons and tons of new words. “sick” :(, “sit”, “cuddle”, “up please” just to name a few.
She’s also mastered nodding YES and NO all.the.time. Today I asked her if she liked it that she could tell Mommy what she wanted by nodding. She nodded YES. It was pretty funny 🙂
