ooh, the intensity...popsicle eating is no joke! :) takes concentration :)
now onto play...this girl ADORES her little brother!
Lucy's current favorite hairstyle...she asks for me to put one side up and one side braided. I have absolutely no idea where she got the idea, but it's classic Lucy! I love it!
Doesn't everything just look so timeless in black and white!?!
"Mommy, can I climb up to the top and you take my picture?!?"
Notice the festive attire! I pulled out all of Lucy's fall clothes for this season, and since last week she has worn nothing other than her velvet Christmas dresses. So, I stand corrected, Barbara... Apparently a girl does need many formal Christmas dresses :)
And another new thing...Lucy has learned to tie her shoes - thanks completely to the wonderful caretaker at SportsMed, Amanda. One night, I dropped Lucy off to go to zumba, and when I picked her up, she had learned how. Lucy insists on tying her own shoes, but often, she tromps around on the loose laces :)
It's wonderful to experience the positive side effects of her own blossoming independence. She dresses herself (clearly :) every morning before she comes downstairs, and my favorite thing she does on her own now is taking her own showers. It's a very close second to how awesome it was when she started going to the bathroom on her own! :)
My parents like to poke fun at me for being such a follower of John Rosemond's theories on child-rearing, but like he says - and I firmly believe, too - parenting - the hard, demanding components - is all about "working yourself out of a job." I LOVE that Lucy is doing such a great job at taking some of the things off my job description and adding them to her own list. Way to go, Lucy! Mommy really appreciates the breathing room :)
Just a few more of cutie Connor!
