Planes and Trains

Thanks to a nice visit from grandma and Britt, Lucy got her fill of planes and trains this week.

Urban versus Suburban Walking

Lucy and I go for a lot of walks these days. They are slow and filled with finding sticks and listening for noises. Gone are the days when walking was a form of exercise, but we love them. Luckily Lucy's favorite stand-in siblings (these three are so cute with Lucy, they take care of her and tease her and teach her and are just the perfect equivalent of dreamy siblings) like to explore on downtown treks so we get out of our neighborhood walking rut. Downtown is fun because there is always new noises and spontaneous parks and delicious food to be had.

And then there are mornings when Lucy wakes up asking for a walk and we don't even bother getting out of our pajamas, figuring that enough layers will cover up our grave fashion faux pa. The suburbs are fun because it is quiet and the leaves are uncrunched and people let you pet their dogs.

This is what we came home with this morning. We have been in a decorating mood lately and all that was missing was a little craftyness from Lucy.

Cute Friends

I am so lucky that some of the coolest people I know happen to come with really cool babies too! And they call my own baby things like "plucky", which makes me day. Plucky: marked by courage, spirit, and determination in the face of difficulties or danger. Today we had a fun day looking for the best leaves, eating snacks, reading books, and enjoying a dance party.

Warning: Do not watch video clip if you are one of those people that can't focus on anything but the urge to pull up a kids' sagging pants when you see it.

Halloween Ate My Daughter

We bought some costumes on sale after Halloween to fill up Lucy's dress-up box and she is over the moon. She keeps trying on piece after piece and has settled on this number as her favorite.

Lucy loved Halloween. She loved dressing up (I suspect she will be sporting the zebra look for a good portion of November) and she loved that people just handed her candy (and mom didn't say no). She loved trick or treating with her school best-y, Jack, and we are all glad that nature didn't run its course and the lion and zebra remained cordial.
