TEN MONTHS (& 4 days)

This little girl is growing like a champ, and all too fast!

And it's hard to get any photos of her because she is constantly on the go!

Showing off her personality here!

What a cutie, huh?

She was most fascinated by that sticker on her shirt today.

I guess it was tasty.

Look at that gorgeous round head! We're hoping for an early graduation from the helmet- we go back this week for a check up.

Someone has found her tummy.

Mommy takes out the nifty fifty lens for some close-up fun.

Hello blue eyes!

At your nine month check up you were 21 lbs. Dr. Kollar wanted to take you home with her.

But we'd be very lost without our Lucy Bug!

We'll share you, but only for a little while.

How fun is this pic? You had your back to Mommy and then when I started talking you turned around grinning.

And I guess I caught you by surprise here.


Thighs like no other.

An action shot.

Mommy thought it would be fun to peek at you throught the railing, and you delivered!

There's my gorgeous baby girl!

It's so fun to watch you grow, learn, and explore.

Imagine how good these photos could be if I knew the first thing about Photoshop. These are untouched and straight out of the camera. Did I mention how much I love my new lens?


And double love. At ten months you are loving your new digs in the crib, and still rocking the table food like no other. You love to giggle back and forth with Caroline. You will say Mamamam, and Dadada, but only with lots of prompting. As you army crawl around I realize just how dirty the floors really are, and how quick you are! You manage to find any piece of paper within sight, and promptly give it a taste. With those strong teeth, retrieving things from you can also pose a challenge! You are also talented enough to sit back in an upright position from your tummy. You do the splits and move yourself backwards until you are sitting back up. I have NO idea where you got that flexibility. Perhaps from your Aunt Wendy, because I know that your parents certainly can't do that move! You smile at the dog and you love toys that make music and light up. You know how to pull your socks off and give them a taste, and your hair is starting to curl up on your neck, and poke through the holes of your helmet. You are a bundle of joy and you keep yourself very happy and entertained most of the time. We love our Buggy girl. Ten months. Really? You can quit this growing thing any time now, kiddo. Mommy likes you just. like. this. (I say that every month, don't I? It's true!)

Goofy Girl

Just hanging out after bath with my big girl!

And she is oh-so-cheesy for the camera these days.

And full of ornery.

And usually a littlle bit of 'tude as well.

But we sure do giggle a lot around here. Oh so goofy, and oh so fun.

Sprout's sprouts

Perhaps it will be an early Spring. Can you see what's budding?
Here's a closeup. You may have to click the photo to enlarge. We see hair sprouts peeking through the helmet holes almost daily around here.

And here's what we do as soon as that helmet is off.

We reach up and feel that hairy stuff as if to say "What the heck is up there?"

She will give that head a good exploratory scrubbing with those hands.

Not too much longer, Lucy bug. You'll be helmet free soon. Until then, sprout away!

Watching Daddy at work

With the little burst of snow we had last week, Rick went to work on the driveway, while some of the family watched.

Tilly was less than thrilled at the flash of the camera.

And Caroline watched while Daddy helped dig out the neighbors.

The joy of watching her Daddy come back home.

Studying the situation.

And the thrill of wrapping up in Daddy's snow clothes. Good times.

We came home to snow this week! What fun!

Caroline was too excited to play outside.

She tried catching a few flakes on her tongue.

And Lucy wasn't sure what to think about all of this.

Giving Mommy the "I don't want to go inside because you said it's too cold" face.

Lucy thinks it's mighty bright out here for her liking.

Okay, so Mommy caved and got her dressed properly for a little more fun in the snow.

She loved picking it up with her hands.

And throwing it up in the air!

Isn't that what you would do with snow, too?

She had an absolute ball, if you can't tell by these photos.

Time to go in Daddy? Okay! That was fun. Let's come play another day.
