Catching you up…
Since our very brief vacation – Lucy has been walking consistently better each day. She now, pretty much, chooses walking over crawling. She still topples forward or backward, but she is for real walking now. At 15 months.
She’s been (sorta) behind on a lot of stuff – at least based on most baby books – but she is very smart. She copies us on a regular basis.
Yesterday she tried to say “Hey Puppy” because I was saying it. It came out kinda like, “Heh gupah” but, she was trying.
She likes cheetohs.
And we’ve found a new show that she adores.
Its a british show about… a Farmer (named Farmer) and his sheep. The main character is Shaun, who is a (teenage?) sheep. He’s smaller than the rest of the sheep – but he’s not the baby. The baby is Timmy.
Lucy relates to Timmy. They both love their pacifiers.
Anyway – Shaun the sheep and all his sheep buddies are watched over by Bitzer – the sheep dog. And they are always gettin in trouble. But none of them talk. They just baa. The Farmer only grunts. There are pigs and some chickens too, and the evil Pidsley, which is the Farmer’s cat who is always out to get the sheep.
The sheep like to break into Farmer’s house when he goes to town and either eat all his jam or throw a party (complete with party hats).
Its really a cute show. Lucy gets mesmerized by it.
And its funny enough that we don’t mind watching it with her!
Lucy is getting big, too.
And, that’s about all for today.
Tomorrow is the Race for Grace 5K (3.11 mile) run in Hattiesburg that Wesley and I will both be doing. I’m not nervous – I know I can finish, I just want to have a good time. I’d like to beat 30 minutes, but the fastest 5K I’ve run in the past 3 years is 29:38. I’d loooove to beat that, but I’m not sure I can. My fastest 5K in the past 2 months is 30:28. I’ll be happy with anything below that. Shoot.. I’ll be happy to cross the finish line, but I would love to have a good time too.
Ok, I’ll let you know how it goes!
AND! I made a craft spot for myself. And I LOVE IT!
I can leave my craft stuff out (sorta) and my house still looks clean and organized. Its not on my kitchen table anymore! Pics to come.
Hope your weekend is AWESOME. And Cool too – since we are hoping!
