Walking the Walk

Lucy took her first steps today! She's been increasingly good at standing on her nown and then on Thursday, at Spanish story time, she was holding onto a chair and let go and took a step and then realized what she'd done and sat right down. After that, while standing she would just bend her legs and dance up and down until she fell down. And then, tonight, she figured out what she's suppposed to do. My friend Catherine and her husband came over for dinner (and to fix my shower -hooray!) with their sweet kiddos, Celine and Luke, and I thinkLucy was trying to impress those big girls. While they all played, Lucy took two steps at two separate times. You can see that she knows she's supposed to do something but can't quite make her legs do it yet but she's really really trying! I'll try to get a video up soon if I can capture it. It's so cute and she's SO excited! And so am I! I like walking SO much more than crawling. Go go Lucy girl!!

Some Random PIctures of Life These Days

Ruby made these ghosts with Magy and Joel yesterday and she waited for me at the window to see if I'd be scared. When I got home I shrieked and carried on at the sight of the scary ghosts in the yard. She and Kayla giggled uncontrollably and Ruby was so proud of the trick she played on Mama!

Coffee Klatch

"Kayla, this coffee tastes really great! I like this creamer!" "Oh glad you like it, Ruby! Do you ever wonder where you'll go when you die?"
"Giirrrrllll! You crack me up!! I'm just wondering if we'll have cheese for dinner!"
"That girl doesn't take anything seriously. I'm just going to finish my coffee and find a librarian to ask."

9 Months Old!

Lucy is now 9 months old! I can hardly believe it! We had a successful visit to the doctor where she impressed the staff with her standing skills and won them over with her smiles and giggles. For those keeping track of her stats, she weighs 18lbs 2oz and is 26 inches long. Her love of food shows! Happy 9 month birthday my little monkey!
You, uh, gotta little something right there...
