Two new developments

Look close, Lucy has something to show you...

Over the last two weeks, Lucy has sprouted her top two teeth! Just like the bottom two, one came in right after the other. And as you parents know, this makes for a very delightful baby. I can't wait til' the molars come!

Here she is doing what she does best, emptying the contents of my purse onto the floor. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. This girl is nosy!

Last week Pari came over for a visit. Since they're family, the girls figured it was okay to hang out in their pajamas. Can you believe how big Pari's getting? They love talking to each other and telling secrets. They are already the best of friends...

Except when Lucy forgets the concept of personal space. And because she is twice her cousin's size it is understandable when Pari recoils from fear. Here Lucy is getting ready to "dogpile/hug" Pari.

Papa Walter and Grandma Boo took us out to lunch on Sunday morning. I freaking love Macaroni Grill. Delicious! Lucy loves to talk on the phone. It doesn't matter if the call isn't for her or if the phone isn't hers. She always has something to say.

I thought it was time for Lucy to move into her crib. I don't know why. Maybe it was the waking up at 3 AM screaming at the top of her lungs. She did okay the first two nights. The third wasn't as successful. Charles and I talked it over and made the decision together that it would be better to tackle one thing at a time, e.g., getting her on a schedule first. She is still a night owl, and has no problem getting up at seven in the morning. I'm still not sure where she gets that from. It's definitely not from me. All the same, she does enjoy playing in her crib.

Yesterday, the community center had their "free day". Since we love anything free, we decided to go and check out their pool. Lucy had such a good time. We started swimming at 12:30 and left the center two hours later. She played herself out and took a much needed hour nap when we got home. It makes me contemplate getting a membership.

Lucy, me, Ethan, Megan, and Oliver at the zero entry end by the giant water squirting mushroom.

Megan and Oliver playing with Ethan's baby boat. It was a steal for a dollar, but you have to watch it closely. One lean to the side and the thing will capsize.

Ethan and Lacy. That Ethan is a mover and a shaker. It is difficult to get a posed picture. So getting one of him sitting still speaks highly of my photograher skills.

Last night the playgroup had a family BBQ, men included. It was so much fun. I can't believe it's taken so long for us all to get together. Mommies and Babies (L-R) Me, Lucy, Jen, Preston, Megan, Oliver, Emily, Mal, Melana, Zach, and Lacy, Ethan.

Daddies and Babies (L-R) Josh, Mal, Charles, Lucy, Mike, Oliver, Jason, Preston, Dave, Zach, and Jon, Ethan.

The Happy Family is always happier after a good meal with great friends!
