Lucy Weekly Picture #51

Lucy, you’re starting to do a bunch of free-standing. You’ll pull off of the furniture and clap and clap like you’re the cutest thing ever. And you’re pretty darn close, but you have two siblings who at your age would give you a run for your money. You’re also starting to play more interactively with me, and you’re starting to give hugs and “kisses”. The kisses are nice full mouth slobbers to whoever is silly enough to accept it.

Lucy, you’re starting to stand up without any assistance or holding on to anything. And you LOVE the bath. Of all our kids, I think you enjoy it the most at this age. You will SPLASH and SPLASH and heaven help whoever is on bath duty that night, because they’re coming out WET.

What a happy girl you are, most of the time. Just not at night. No, you’re not really a big fan of sleeping. You just want to NURSE all night long. In fairness, you’ve been teething and then sick and sick again, and good grief it’s always something with you! More sleep training coming soon!
