9 Months

This little mischievous munchkin had other plans for me when I was setting up her 9 month photo shoot.  These pictures capture her personality perfectly these days- the toddler mentality is already shining through with little tantrums when she gets something taken away and I can just hear her saying “I can do it myself” if she could talk.  Oh boy!   On a sweeter note, Lucy is babbling all the time and is very smiley!  The last few days she has been giggling  ...

Baby’s First Christmas

Our crazy winter weather this past week has made it seem like we are still on Christmas break. So I figured I may as well share some pictures from Lucy’s first Christmas! Her favorite present was wrapping paper and the balloon her Oma gave her; Everything else was pretty second-rate.

8 Months

Our little Lucy is somehow 8 months old now. I looked at the calendar and realized I was two days past the 27th which gave me quite a bit of mom-guilt for letting that special day pass by.  Aside from the usual nitty-gritty, HARD WORK that any baby normally is, Lucy has been SO much fun lately.  She’s waving, babbling away, singing, eating lots and lots of real food, and smiling from ear to ear.  She still doesn’t love green beans (who does?!) but the girl can  ...

Tonight we did a little Christmas Eve-ing since I work the actual Christmas Eve day; we looked at Christmas lights, opened up one preview gift each and got our new Christmas jammies.  All enjoyed the festivities except for the star of the show, Lou.  I was so excited to start the traditions with her but bedtime called and honestly, it’s not worth keeping a sleepy baby awake, is it?!  The one gift each that Chase and I opened were from my parents and honestly, I’m  ...

Gift Guide for an Infant

Don’t get me wrong, I love buying things for our daughter and it thrills my heart to see her happily playing with the toys or looking at books we have provided for her.  But actual gifts for an infant seems a bit pointless.  I mean seriously, the most exciting part for Lucy will be the wrapping paper!  So why make a big fuss over gifts?  WELL, it’s because it will be Lucy’s first Christmas and there’s no way she won’t be getting some packages from  ...

Snow Day

Yesterday we woke up to a beautiful coating of white powder on the ground.  It was not only our first snow of the season but also Lucy’s first snow EVER!  We raced outside but she didn’t really seem impressed- Max on the other hand was rolling around like a crazy dog in the snow covered grass.  Lucy preferred to stare at the fire going in the fireplace, which is exactly what we did for most of the day!   While my day probably should have been filled with  ...
