Blake has been in Columbus, OH all week for work and I have to say Lucy and I managed pretty well. I kind of was dreading him leaving because I usually am scared staying alone in our house but this is the first time our little family unit has been apart from each other since Lucy came home from the hospital and I guess watching a 14 month old (yes, 14 months yesterday baby girl!) alone is enough to wear me out by the end of the night that I can't stay awake to be scared.
yes, lucky for me our week consisted of some sleeping-in-late mornings
That night my sister Caitlin came over and saw a new side of Lucy. Oh my goodness! Lucy is really the perfect baby and never fusses, never wakes up in the night and never causes me much grief. But her dracula (top pointers) teeth are coming in and it is not a fun time. We thought Lucy would be all about a girls night with dinner, movie and chatting but she wasn't so we tried our best to make her happy and at the end of the night she finally settled in for a cuddle with Caitlin. I think she finally loves her aunt.
Getting ready for our shopping date - unfortunately for me Lucy has decided she doesn't really like wearing bows anymore. I had a long convo with her and told her that's really not an option so she can pull them out all she wants but I'll keep clippin' them back in!
The rest of the week we did some shopping, planting, playing, kissing, trying to take steps and laughing and snuggling in bed. Last night we went to my parents and lounged in their yard and took advantage of the perfect weather.
Lovely squint Luce! Caitlin must be getting a badge in babysitting because she's been all about helping with Luce this week. These are new summer jams from our shopping trip because the thought of her wearing footed pajamas on a warm night was making me sad.
I think we fared pretty well while Blake was away. But this bug girl misses her daddy and I think we'll all three be happy to reunite when he comes home in a few hours!!!
This is a smile - not a cry face. I've tried to teach Lucy to blow kisses, say mommy and various other tricks but the only one she's really picked up lately has been "the shimmy" every day we have our music on and I kept showing her how to shimmy and she picked it up so fast and she will do it ALL the time. I need to get video of it but this is her laughing after a major shimmy session to the song "Werewolves of London" love my girl!
