Smith Rock

On our way to Sun River for the long weekend, we made a stop at Smith Rock to tackle some rocks. It was so gorgeous, even if our successes were feeble at best.

Mom's Here = Urban Fondue = Katie's Birthday

We went to Urban Fondue late enough that Lucy was supposed to be sound asleep for the night in her cozy little carrier. But miss a party? This girl? No way. Her eyes popped open the second we ordered and she loved the whole experience.

Our Sick Little Lady

In her book of firsts, this week gets a big snotty check mark for first cold.
So we hold her all day and let her get away with an attitude like this
And faces like this.
In other news, we participated in our third annual Heart Walk as a family. Yes, we took a coughing and sneezing baby, but you can't mess with tradition.
And when Katie came over to visit this week, we found that we were all matching.

She is pretty excited!
And in other news, here is the previously mentioned smile that elicits all sorts of comments, from cute to creepy.

Four Months Old

This month was somewhat lazy for little Lucy. She already learned the roll last month and didn't seem motivated enough this month to move on to any more complex modes of transportation. She did, however, learn a few skills to make her stationary situation a little more enjoyable. She learned how make her hands obey her will, much to the chagrin of "Mallory the Monkey" and "Olivia the Elephant" who are ferociously attacked every morning. She also learned how to raise the volume of her talking to a surprising level which has to be entertaining since no one is capable of talking over that. On top of all of that, she learned two new smiles, one made of a little tiny "O" with her mouth and the other a great big horizontal line that some have actually called a little "creepy". These are both guaranteed to get prolonged reactions from anyone near. I believe our Lucy is a fast learner: who needs to be mobile when you can bring all the activity right to you?

Lucy and Grandma Wecker

Lucy had so much fun with her grandma this month! I would come home and they would be dancing and singing or cooking and talking. They are a fabulous pair.

Baby's First Hairdo

Finally hair just long enough to style. And in a little tiny mohawk of all things.

Mother's Day

I love being a mom. Or more accurately, I love being Lucy's mom. These past four months (or thirteen, depending on your perspective) have been the best of my entire life, and I've had a pretty good life. I love all the smiles and even all the tears. I love when her little bum stays curled when I pick her up and she settles just perfectly against my chest. I love when she makes new faces (like the little O she has been sporting of late) and forms new sounds (did I mention yet that she said 'two' and 'yeah'). I love how she responds to everyone and everything around her. I just love that girl and I can't wait to watch her keep growing.

Take Your Daughter To Work Day

Lucy got to spend an afternoon with her dad at work. Of course she loved it. She loves that man!

Lucky Girl

What a lucky girl that Lucy is. She got to hang out with Grandma all week and her persuasive drooling has produced some very stylish bibs. Maybe Lucy will pick up some of her grandma's skills. Nathaniel Hawthorn did after all say that "it is a token of healthy and gentle characteristics when women of high thoughts and accomplishments love to sew; especially as they are never more at home with their own hearts than while so occupied."

Playing with Dad

The many faces of daddy time: being blown on, talked to, stared at, and scared
