Amazingly Super Wondergirl

I have tried pretty hard in Lucy's little life to keep the presence of princesses to a minimum, but it turns out my worry was silly because today Lucy was telling me a story in which a little girl named Lucy rescued the princess from a robot.  She called herself the princess rescuer.  She is brave and kind and I love that she sees herself as such.

Backyard playground

Everyone warns you that you take fewer pictures of your second child than your first, but for me, I have found that having a stationary subject is a welcome relief from blurry picture after blurry picture of Lucy.  My photography skills apparently don't extend into toddlerhood but I can't miss documenting this stage simply because I'm no good at it. She is growing just as much as Reid - she has reached new levels of independence and bravery that are both terrifying and wonderful. It used to be that she wanted an adult by her side while she played outside but now she is frequently off on her own exploring.  To my horror I have heard the garage door open while upstairs feeding Reid and looked out the window to see Lucy on her tricycle happily riding down the street.

Growing Up

1st tooth * giggles * grabbing feet * rolling all over
This little guy is getting the hang of manipulating the world around him and now it seems that every single day he learns something new.  I love watching him so young and yet so excited about life that it almost makes me forget how much I want him to stay tiny forever!

Simple Mornings or Why Swaddle Blankets Come With Instructions

The video should work now.  Mike has advised me that my videos might be too long, but I just can't cut them down.  Just like I can't delete pictures because I adore every single micro expression of my little ones.

Why I love my job {part II}

Why I love my job {part I}

[While watching Curious George this morning.]
Mom: What does curious mean?
Lucy, without a moments hesitation: It mean hello in Franch.

Everyone has a story to tell...
