Summer Fun

Today was such a fun day with Lucy. First, this morning we went with some friends to the pool. Lucy took a little while to warm up, but once she did, she started to get the hang of her floaties (this was our first attempt at using them) and would leap off of the side of the pool to me. It was so cute. The weather in Little Rock was amazing today. It was 10 degrees cooler than it has been lately and it felt so nice. We played outside a long time this afternoon and then went and ate dinner at the country club with my parents. It is the best place to take pictures. We ate outside so Lucy could run and play and not feel confined to a table and chair. We went for a golf cart ride, checked out the ducks and swans, and threw rocks in the lake. Papa let Lucy help drive the golf cart and she was just so pleased with herself and the whole evening. Really, we all had an awesome night.

I thought I should note for myself that Lucy is really starting to properly use verbs and pronouns in the past couple of weeks. Instead of saying "Hold you" when she wants picked up she actually said "hold me" today. She is constantly saying phrases like, "I get it" and "Catch it!" I just love that she is really starting to talk to us and we know what she is talking about most of the time.

This is A LOT of pictures, but I just love all of these. They make me smile. Enjoy!

She loves to walk on her tippy toes. This girl LOVES high heels and can walk everywhere in any of my heels. She practices even when no heels are available.

Running with Lee Lee. Lucy is obsessed with Lee Lee right now. Don't worry Nana, it will be your turn next week! I feel like chopped liver a lot of the time! :)

As always, your photos are beautiful. I'm glad you're having fun with your family. I LOVE profile shots of Mattix, too! There's something about his little profile that melts my heart. Of course, my pictures aren't great, but I still love his profile!

I love the new pics! Is that horse from when you and your sisters were little? Those were the best!!! They don't make them as good anymore! I wish my mom had kept mine!

Amber said...

Kelli said...

Love the profile shots and the cute dress!

Nicki said...

Your compositions are really getting amazing, Kel! I am envious! SO many great pictures!!! Lucy's life sounds so full of joy! It makes me happy just looking at her pictures! i'm thinking of just having them all printed and throwing them in a scrapbook and telling Addy it is her so I'll never have to take another picture! haha. SO funny about the high heels! Addy's trying to figure out the pronouns too. For awhile she called everything "It" instead of he or she - that was hilarious. Today I heard her call me "She" so I know its changing too fast. Don't you already miss the "carry you"?! Sniff.

rachel said...

It does not get any more adorable than the picture of her chasing the ducks. That is certainly a picture you will LOVE looking back on as she grows.

Heather Field said...

I love the one of her peeking through the back of the lawn chair! Every picture captures her spirit! SO ADORABLE!!!!

Shawna said...

Great pics Kel. I am so happy I got to play with Lucy this weekend for a bit and even happier that she warmed up to me after a while! Miss Shawna will give her swimming lessons anytime. I had so much fun with you this weekend! Such a great momma and great friend! Miss you all already!

Nancy said...

Wonderful pics - I especially love the ones with your mom and dad. My older siblings had a horse just like that one when they were little! :)

StaceyF said...

Kel, I had the best time with you at the 10er! It was also so much fun to spend time with you and Lucy both! She is such a bright and happy little girl! Hope you guys have a safe trip and that Lucy gets to feeling better. Looking forward to seeing you all again soon!

Morgan's Mom said...

These are wonderful--I love the photos with her grandfather. It looks like they have a very special bond :)

Meredith said...

Lucy and the photography are just as gorgeous as always. I love that dress - so sweet!

Christina said...

You take such great pictures, and I don't think you could have a better model. She is just gorgeous and adorable and SO photogenic!!!

Erica said...

Such beautiful pictures! Lucy is so expressive. I'm sure you have shared before, but what kind of camera do you use???

Kristi said...

We have that Baby Gap dress too and it's so cute with a BG tank top underneath it. Depending on the color -- white, navy, pink -- it totally changes the look.

Cute photos.

Mab said...

Kelly,
As always, i LOVE the photos. I especially LOVE all the black and whites. Gorgeous!

abc123vn said...

I wish I could take pictures like yours! Lucy is so adorable!

baby o...eric...april said...

You are such a great photographer....we found your blog when we were hoping to adopt from Vietnam but due to all the conflict are waiting for a referral from Central Asia. I just got to say...nice wardrobe mom. Where do you get such nice un-pink clothes. I have already started loading up on tea collection. Love to know more places to get things that actually look good on little ethnic gals. HEY WORLD NOT EVERYONE LOOKS GOOD IN PINK.

She's a keeper! Warm regards, April

Mom said...

Kelly--just waiting for your call to know that you and Lucy got home safely. The house is too quiet already! Tell your buds that yes, that horse was Holly and yours--then Katy and Amy. Needs some work, but boy does it still rock! Can't wait for you to post the family reunion pics. They are awesome, too. Love and kisses, LeeLee
