Family Visit

Lucy's Aunt Katie and Uncle Iain came to visit from Minnesota. Both were sweating profusely from the 40 degree weather on Sunday and Iain was considering wearing his 'out of season' bermuda shorts outside. Needless to say, Lucy turned on the charm and had them wrapped around her finger within 24 hours. She was so glad that they came down and is looking forward to seeing them again soon. Since Lucy hasn't had a b-m in a week, she had some lethal farts that caused her to get passed around frequently. I think she let one go right before this picture was taken.


After the photo shoot for the picture below, Lucy noted to her dad that Iain's biceps were 'considerably smaller' than her dad's and Iain seemed to suffer from bouts of weakness followed by moments of extreme wussiness. This is consistent with Charles' observation of Iain during childhood and basically up to this point. When probed of her thoughts of her Aunt Katie, Lucy noted that she was 'great' and is looking forward to spending more time with her. This interview was recorded during a diaper changing session but the recording was somehow misplaced and not available for reproduction.

Here is Lucy with Katie and the annoying toy Tad. Good thing Tad is about out of batteries and will not be getting recharged anytime soon. I will have to find a way to explain to Lucy that Tad made loud noises at inappropriate times and is now 'swimming with the fishes'. Maybe I should ask Lucy's Aunt Supavan (Suzanna Sue) since she is completing her PhD in psychology in a few months.


"Does this flower on my head make me look fat?"


Um....

Here is Lucy with her Grandpa. I guess there is a lot of competition for names and identities for grandparents given today's family structure...and the fact that we live in Missouri. When I was a kid, it was just Grandpa and Grandma - but now it is much more complicated. For example, there is Pa-Pa (pronounced paw-paw), O-Pa, G-money, Grandmaster Pa, The Dutch of Gramps, Grandizzle, and the like. Not to mention that we have gotten in the habit of giving close friends the moniker of 'Uncle' and 'Aunt'....but only if it is recriprocated. For instance, Lucy can call Shawn her Uncle Shawn, but only if his kids call me Uncle Charles. If it stops at any point, Lucy will need to be sent in for reprogramming...and if you don't have kids, you can forget about the title. But I digress - below is a picture of Lucy with her Grandpa Walter - which is not Lucy's 'best side' but still a good photo.
