Hello Again

It has been a while since my last post. First of all, I had to laugh about the numerous comments I got about Lucy being naked in the pool but still having her bow in. That did look funny. The thing with the bows is that they are actually needed. Her bangs come down to her nose and without a bow, she has hair in her eyes constantly. So, most of the time when she wakes up in the morning, a bow is popped in immediately. I occasionally have a clip around, but there is always a bow around, so she ends up a bow head all of the time.

Our lives have been pretty laid back lately. She hasn't been swimming the past several days because it has been overcast and yucky weather. She is back to sleeping wonderfully and we are all thankful for that. She has even been quite lazy lately. Sleeping in past 8 and one morning until 9 before waking up. I never thought I would think this, but when she sleeps later than about 8:15, it messes up her whole schedule so badly that it is not really worth it. I am always awake anyway, so life is easier if she just gets up. That way she still takes a good morning nap and doesn't get overly tired throughout the day.

She has really been trying to take a step or two lately. She can't do it yet, but she is trying so hard. I am really excited for her to start walking. I can't wait to be able to actually play at the park with her. She can already get anywhere she wants to get, so walking is not going to change that. She is obsessed with climbing the stairs. She loves it. After each step, she looks back to make sure someone sees her accomplishment. She also loves to put her face in between the railing on the stairs. Silly girl. Here are some pictures from the past couple of days.

Love this dress - kind of cheerleaderish!!

Look at my dress all spread out.

We got her these sunglasses the other day and she LOVES them. She wore them in the store for 15 minutes without ever touching them. They look so adorable on her.

Wearing my shades with my Aunt Katy and PaPa.

I sure do love my Aunt Katy!!

Lucy looks so innocent and angelic in this little dress. Her style is not so much the smocked dress look, so this is a different look for her than usual. I LOVE smocked dresses, but Justin thinks that they are crafty and nerdy. Weirdo, I know. Justin prefers Lucy to be dressed in a hipper manner. I have to admit though, everything he picks for her is really cute. I like both looks - smocked, sweet dresses and the "hip" clothes. My little sister even commented when she saw Lucy dressed like this that it was totally not her style. So funny.

She sure does look cute in it though!!

Bath time hair spike. Her hair is so long that it took a lot of effort to get her spike to stay up.

I loved the bow in the hair with no swim suit on! I go between trendy and the "nerdy" look with Mia. But, left up to Mia she'd be in a frilly dress every day all day. I love Lucy's clothes. In every pictures she has on another great outfit. Little girls are SO much fun, especially when they're little and YOU can dress them. Little Lucy is too cute with a huge hairbow and cool shades!

What a cool girl in her shades! I can't wait to see you guys so I can cheer on your little stair climber. I hear what you're saying about those long bangs. I think there are many bows in Gracie's future.

Love the shades...what a cool chick! The spiked hair is great too...bathtime shots are the best.

Heather said...

Oh, Lucy will look cute no matter what. I understand about the bow and bangs thing. Sarah's got the same thing going on.

Kelly said...

wow, so many amazing pics of Lucy I can't possibly pic a favorite (although I do love the bathtub "spike hair" pic). So good to hear the joy in your words and know that little Lucy is finally and truly home, after such a long, and sometimes difficult, journey!

Sara said...

Oh, more adorable pics! My Lucy also always needs some sort of hair doo-dad. I refuse to cut her bangs, so bows and clips it is! Tell Justin that Lucy will have plenty of time in her life to wear trendy clothes but precious few years to wear adorable baby clothes! Savor babyhood while it lasts because it is gone SO quickly. With either "look", she always looks gorgeous :) I think I like both versions equally!

I am cracking up at the bathtub pic! That is the best! I can't believe how big she is getting. We miss you guys!
