The Big Sister

In case you haven't had time to read up on Annie's blog, I want to say that Lucy has transitioned into her role as the big sister as smoothly as could have ever happened. She has done awesome. I know that it won't always be this smooth because today she did start claiming toys as hers and only hers, but really, Justin and I have been so proud of her. She is very loving towards Annie, she does not get upset about me having to hold Annie all of the time, etc. She just rocks!

Lucy started back to school this week and she has seemed to be pretty happy to see her friends and teachers again. Things have been so busy around here, but once we get settled back down, it will be nice for me to have that one on one time with Annie. Lucy has been really excited about all of the Christmas decorations being out and she has only broken one ornament. She has been *pretty* good about not touching the ornaments and only touching the special ones just for her, but sometimes curiosity just gets the best of her. Understandable. I will try and get Christmas pics up soon, but it really looks the exact same as last year.

Lucy got back on US time so quickly after our trip to Vietnam. She is right back on schedule, which has been so nice. I think she is really happy to have her own quiet place to sleep again without a screaming baby in the background the entire time! :) She is so happy to have all of her toys again and has been busy as a bee ever since we have gotten home.

It seems like Lucy has gone through a vocabulary explosion recently. She says things every day that just crack us up. She is understanding concepts much more now. The other day she was just talking away and I mentioned that if something happened it would not be good. I don't remember what we were talking about, but she responded with, "Well, we don't want that to happen momma." It just seemed like such a big statement. She seems HUGE now that Annie is here. Huge size wise but also just so grown up. She is definitely not my baby anymore, even though I always want her to be my baby. Every time we tell her we love her, she responds with, "I love you too, honey." Sweet girl.

Lucy Goose, we just love you more and more and you have amazed your dad and me with your maturity and loving heart. Thank you baby girl. You are such a wonderful sister and we can't wait to see all of the fun times you and Annie have together.

I have been reading but unable to comment until now (at least as long as Samuel is playing)! Lucy seems like the most amazing big sister! She looks so sweet in the pictures! Go LUCY :)

Amber said...

Jess and Paul said...

That middle picture just kills me! They are so, so, SO sweet together. I am glad Lucy is doing well...that takes a load off doesn't it? Sometime, when you get a chance...I'd love to hear about how you prepared Lucy for the new addition.

Heather said...

You have major cuteness going on in your home. Glad the Lucy is doing so well with the adjustment. I'm sure they'll have their typical sibling moments (rivalry), but they'll also probably be awesome friends since they are so close in age. Watch out, Annie will grow up faster than Lucy did because....monkey see, monkey do! :)

What an amazingly adorable pair! Way to go Lucy on being such an amazing big sister!

Kate said...

I ditto Jess's comment, I'd love to hear how you prepared Lucy for baby sister. Looking for ideas for my Lu. Pictures are sweet as usual and I love the Misha dress--it's Luci's Christmas dress too!

It happens so fast! Cannot believe how much Lucy has matured. She will be a wonderful big sister.

Rebecca said...

How adorable!! You can tell how much Lucy loves her baby sister.

WHERE did you get their cute dresses?!?

KrisJ said...

YAAA Lucy!! What a big girl, its so excited (and sad) watching them grow!

Dawn said...

Kelly,

Your girls look so adorable...and Lucy looks like a fabulous big sister.

I know you have a million and one things on your plate right now, but I wanted to ask a ?? about your girls dresses. I know Misha LuLu runs big...my Lucy is 4, weighs 25ibs and only 34 in tall...do you think a 2 would be too big?? 18-24 mo be better?
Thanks for your time :)

I have been a Lucy "fan" for a long time and I'm sure I will grow just as fond of little Annie. They are both so adorable & will be great together especially since they are so close in age. Happy Holidays to your beautiful family.

Christina said...

She really is an amazing kid to have done so well with all these big changes, huh?!

Mab said...

So adorable! You know I LOVE those matching outfits. I am happy to hear that the girls are doing so well. Jade doesn't quite know what to think yet of her brother, especially the toy sharing but she has given him a hug or two if we have asked her to, lol. It was so great to have meet all of you. I am going to miss Lucy's sweet singing, especially The Wheels on the Bus.

Nancy said...

Love that middle pic! :)

Sooz said...

Oh I think they are going to be two inseperable peas in a pod. My mom has always told me that the older child always moves over to make room for the new one. Maybe that's what Lucy is going thru right now. So sweet!

Dawn said...

So happy to hear how well everyone is doing. What a fabulous Christmas you are going to have. Lucy will be SOOOOO much fun this year. Great pics, can't wait to see more soon. They look so cute together
