I can't believe it's been eight months. This little sweetie couldn't be any cuter...and her momma doesn't want her to grow any bigger. I like her just. like. this.
This photo shoot only took 3 tries. It just wasn't jiving well with our schedule this weekend!
But I did manage to get some cute pics of this cutie on film. Lovin' those teeth!
And check out those cheeks! Just makes you want to gobble them up!
These pictures crack me up because this is the expression she does all the time right now. She uses that tongue to feel her new teeth and is constantly exploring that mouth.
And I just couldn't keep her in one place for long. She's rolling everywhere these days!
My 'helper' in the background thought it would be fun to tickle Lucy's back during our shoot.
Lucy spotted the '8' on her tummy and thought it would be fun to eat it.
Had to capture those little piggies.
Peeking at Mommy.
On. the. go.
Lovin' these baby rolls. Sorry for the slew of pictures, but I just couldn't decide..I love them all!
And when she shows those teeth, she melts me!
Raise your arms, girl! Celebrate you!
It just gets more fun every day!
I have loved having 5 days off in a row to spoil my girls! Can you tell by the numerous posts this weekend? We've been having fun and enjoying every minute. At 8 months Lucy is really showing her personality. She loves her toys and pretty much anything within reach goes in the mouth. She also loves toys that light up or make music. She can sit up on her own and keep herself entertained with her basket of toys. She still naps and sleeps like a champ and eats 3 meals a day of her baby food, and 4 bottles. We tried some smashed bananas yesterday and received some mixed reviews, but we did enjoy a few bites of mashed potatoes on Thanksgiving. We now have 2 bottom teeth, and as you can see from the photo here, we have almost 4 on top! She likes to repeat you when you make coughing sounds. She will jabber in bed when she wakes, and sometimes she'll use those lungs to let you know she's still there! She is happy and delightful most of the time and we couldn't be luckier. Sigh. On December 25th, we'll celebrate 9 months. Why does that first year go so fast?
It's cookie decorating time!
So I grabbed a helper!
She named herself official cookie decorating taster...and fulfilled the job quite well.
As you can tell, it's really not about the decorating....it's about the taste.
And the finished product!
Someone looks quite proud!
Toddlers can be so, um..helpful, when decorating the tree.
Kirk and Rick go back to their college days at BG, and we haven't seen them since their Jackson was about Lucy's age. And before that - we last saw them when Kirk sang at our wedding! Caroline and Kirk hit it off immediately.
And she was also quite smitten with Jackson!
Here's sweet little four-month old Knox. He was too cute for words!
