testing a video link

If this link works ... you should be able to view a video montage from when I travelled to get Lucy ... if not, then you'll see nothing, either way you know she's cute!"

water baby

She may not enjoy DRINKING water but swimming, that she loves.  Lucy's mood can be switched from beyond exhaustion to sheer joy if one just plops her in a swimming pool.  OH, she'll sit there all day if you let her.  Lucy loves baths too.  She sticks her face in the water, comes up all wet and smiling.  Sometimes in the pool, she topples over, but still comes up happy.  Maybe this weekend I'll get her to a lake to try out LOTS of water and sand (she loves the sandbox too).

she's so mine

Lucy is starting to have mannerisms that freakishly resemble mine.  She is such a tape recorder!  We had to run to Target last night for her prescription, and some other baby essentials.  Lucy was not excited about sitting in the cart and while she was not crying she was definately noisily exclaiming that she was not where she preferred to be!  My goodness she was loud.  She'll stare into my eyes and scream and shake her head no.  I love that she gets no and yes.  She'll shake her head yes when she wants something and no when she doesn't.  Sometimes she shakes her head no as a way to tease.  She's too funny.

another word

Well Lucy can say Barb too ... but it comes out "baahawab" super cute.  Lucy also had a marathon night of sleep.  She went down at 8:15,  i went into her room at 7:10 this morning, and she was sleepign face down (scared me!).  She was totally breathing though.  I put away her laundry ... she stayed asleep.  I picked her up and she had a pacifier in her mouth and one in each hand, but she was still sound asleep.  I brought her to my bed and layed with her, she stayed asleep until 7:30.   Good thing that our babysitter was coming to our house today, otherwise it would have left us with 10 minutes to get out the door!

grandpa, cracker, and biting

Quite a lot happened this weekend.  Lucy can say grandpa clear as a bell and on command (when it moves her).  She can also say cracker but I hesitate to practice that a lot as she knows what she is saying, and gets upset when we practice saying cracker, and she doesn't actually have a cracker to eat.  Lucy could live off of crackers if I let her.  Lucy bit me twice yesterday, both times after I moved her away from the tv for the hundreth time.  I do love toddlers!  She's growing up so so fast.

Finally it's Friday, a few more hours of work and then a nice relaxing weekend with Lucy.  Tomorrow morning a group of families are travelling to Ethiopia to meet their children.  I can't stop thinking about them and the moment when each of them see and hold their children for the first time.

toddler fun

Can you believe Lucy is 13 months old!!!  It's hard to imagine, I know, but she is getting better and better as time goes by (and cuter as well).  Lucy is a super fast crawler now, she wastes no time getting to places she's not supposed to get to.  She can also pull herself up to standing and is pretty darn happy with all of this new mobility.  Lucy will have nothing to do with her walker (her old favorite), which means that getting anything done around the house while Lucy is awake is nearly impossible.  I think I have folded and she has unfolded the same load of laundry about 5 times now.   She is able to copy almost any facial expression, and practices all of her words and sounds in the car.  For my next car, I choose not to have tinted windows in the back ... I want people to know that I am making "rasberries" and other odd tongue related noises at my baby daughter, not just to amuse myself while driving!    I'll put in some more photos ... some are from the twins game on her first birthday! (she slept through a lot of the game).   Stacy

new photos

Hi,  sorry it's been so long ... life is busy.  Here are some new photos to hold you over until the next time when hopefully I'll write about all of the new tricks Lucy has (think toddler).
