Lucy, I’ve taken far too many pictures of you indoors this year. And since the weather is nice and cool, it’s time to get outside for a few shots! I finally got you in the pretty dress that Mommy put on you for church. I’ve gotten quite a few complaints that I always take the picture after you’ve ruined the dress and are wandering (crawling) around in your Sunday onesie.

Lucy, a funny thing happened this year. Your Daddy got to root for a team that actually looks like it may be good. As of this writing, the Nats are tied 1-1 in the National League Division Series with the defending champion St. Louis Cardinals. Win or lose, it’s been really fun to see a team as dreadful as the Nats have been turn into the team with the best regular-season record in 2012. Clearly, you’re not enjoying it as much as I am, but in fairness, you’re sick and need the sleep.

That’s you and Pop-Pop. I think there’s a bit of a family resemblance. We’re trying to start a Sunday night dinner tradition. Hopefully when you’re old enough to read this, that will still be going on!

Family Resemblance

I don’t think that your mother has been in a single weekly picture yet. That’s just wrong. There were so many good ones to choose from this week (it took everything I had not to pick this one). But your mommy makes so many sacrifices for you (not to mention your siblings and father), that she certainly deserves to be in one of your weekly pictures.

My Girls

There are times when we think you look EXACTLY like your brother. His week 41 picture looks just like you when you’re upset. You make the exact. same. face. Seriously. You’re not the EXACT spitting image of your brother in this week shot, but it’s close.

You have four teeth now! For ENORMOUS teeth. The two top ones have that trademark gap between them that you share with your brother. But they are stinking cute.

It seems like just yesterday you cut those two bottom teeth, and now, the two TOP teeth are in. You are growing so fast, and although I know I’ve said similar things in this vein, you are a real terror around the house. If it’s not bolted down, it goes in your mouth. You babies will eat anything. Nom nom nom.

This week’s photo has a nice shot of your beautiful bl. . . er. . . whatever color those eyes are. They can’t seem to decide. They may eventually settle on green, but right now they’re definitely the outlier in our family. But still just as beautiful!

Not So Blue. . .

Ah Lucy, will I never learn. I took this week’s picture on your mother’s camera, and what appeared to be in focus on that teeny tiny screen was apparently not in focus at all when it is bigger. So this week’s shot isn’t as stellar as I’d like. But it does show you sitting tall, playing on the little play-area that your siblings carefully set up for you. That involved spreading all sorts of baby blankets out and scattering every baby toy we own around over them. Good times.

Sitting Tall!
