Water Baby!!

Be sure and check out the new pictures of our little swimmer. We decided to go to the hotel pool today because it is sweltering hot here and Lucy LOVED it. The water felt a little cold to us, so I was hesitant to let her get in, but the second her feet touched the water, she wanted to dive right in. It was so cute and funny. She just loves water. She got mad at us when we set her on the lounge chair with me. She was squirming around and trying to get back to the water, so Justin put her back in and she was laughing and playing away.

This morning we walked around near our hotel for a while. It is so hot, so I didn't want to keep her out for too long. She loved our stroll around. I think that she loves the hot weather. She is used to it and she seems comfortable in it, but I just didn't want to overheat her. For those of you who have been to Vietnam, you know how the people here cluck at the babies. Well, Justin has mastered the art of the cluck. She goes nuts when he does it.

I want to buy so much stuff, but we are trying to wait until we get to Hanoi. We already have so much stuff with us that we don't want to be adding to it already with another leg of our trip still to go. I did get an awesome skirt and a dress and a couple of things for Lucy. She will have to grow into them, because they are for a 1 year old, but they are so adorable and so cheap.

She is waking from her afternoon nap, so I have to be done for now. More later.

It's not just you...she DOES get cuter every day! I love the pool pics. Our Lucy is also a little water baby and I can't wait for the day when the two Lucys can splash around together. I am now bent and determined to visit Dallas so that the babies (and mommies) can meet! We're following your journey every step of the way and are tickled pink for ya.

I don't know Kelly, is it even possible to get any cuter than she already is...she's already off the scale! I love the swimming pics. I'm glad you all are having a great time in Vietnam and getting to know your daughter.

she is just adorable and you all look so happy.
About the shopping... totally understand about not wanting to pack more, but you should know the prices are way better in HCMC and the bargaining too... in Hanoi they don't haggle and the prices start out higher.

LaLa said...

What a playful little dumplin! Can't wait to take her on the lake this summer- hopefully she will love it! Furthermore, could she look more stinking cute in pink?! It is for sure her signature color! Love and miss, Stacey

Kelly - your mom just sent me this site and I've been reading and smiling for about 2 hours now!!! What a wonderful Christmas gift. Lucy is the luckiest girl in the world to have you both as parents. Best wishes and hope a trip to LR is soon. Talk about culture shock for Lucy - Inverness will definitely be rockin' when you come home.

Love and prayers and keep the pictures coming.

Love, your favorite librarian!

Sara said...

Oh my goodness, those new pics are the best! She does look like such a big girl in those pants :) And is that barrette one that we sent? I think it is...I need to get my Lucy the same one, it is so darn cute. I am SO glad that you like the sling. It will be your absolute best friend. We use ours all the time, and Lucy is nearly a year old and 20 pounds. I don't know what I ever did without it. Keep the pictures coming!
