After all this talk of teeth the past few weeks, I actually managed to catch a few on film (well, not exactly, but close enough). You’re now eating real food. You’re gumming things like bananas and peaches, and have successfully eaten the little puffs that are the gateway drug to what will soon be your Cheerios addiction. I always forget how quickly the baby-food stage goes by.

Teeth!

Lucy, you got back from New York this past Saturday, and you had a SECOND tooth! That was really fast. You’re also constantly in motion when you’re on the ground, so it’s becoming difficult to get a picture of you.

Hard to Capture

Well that was fast. I no sooner got caught up with Weeks 33 and 34, than your mother sends me a Facebook (ask us what this was, someday) message saying that she has posted pictures for me to pick from for Week 35. You’ve hit yet ANOTHER milestone, and I missed this one. Your first tooth! Your mother tells me that you can’t really see it yet, but you can sure as heck FEEL it. Those little suckers are SHARP when they’re brand spanking new. This week’s picture was taken wearing a dress that your mother wore when she was a baby. Recycling at work!

Mommy's Dress

Lucy, week 34 was taken the day after we got back from the beach from the Campbell family vacation. You’re crawling like a champ, and there’s really no stopping you at this point. You’ve got less than a week at home, and then it’s off to NY for a week of fun with Grandma and Grandpa. Your mother is taking you and your siblings up there alone, leaving me and the dog to fend for ourselves while you all are gone. But that means your mother is reponsible for weekly picture #34! And since I’m posting this late (as per usual), I know there is yet another milestone coming up in Week 35.

And I just have to comment on how the best shot of you was BEFORE I moved the baby tent out of the background. Typical!

There's a Laugh!

Lucy, you hit a milestone this weekend at the beach. You’re officially crawling. You’re not all that fast. YET. I’m sure you’ll learn quickly and be a real terror any day now. But it is fun to see you hit these milestones, regardless of the headache or anxiety it will eventually cause us!

Not So Sure
