It’s hard to believe it, but Lucy is 18 months old!!! I don’t know when my baby got this big – but it has happened. She seems to think she is a little girl and not a baby!! What?!
She officially weighs 21 pounds and is 31 inches long. Her favorite thing to say is ‘Norah.’ When she wakes up in the morning, she says, “Norah?” and when I tell her Norah is still sleeping, she says, “Oh.”
She likes to label facial features. She will poke your eye and say confidently, “EYE!” She says nose, ear, hair, mouth, toes, knees, and belly as well.
Little Lu Lu has learned from her big sister the importance of pretend play. Lucy likes to carry around a purse (or 2), keys, and a baby doll. She likes to wrap the baby in a blanket and pat her back while she says, “Ahhhh.”
Lucy has just started telling Norah to “Sit down!” when Norah stands on furniture. However, she is just as quick to stand on a chair or couch if she thinks we aren’t watching. For those of you who know of our struggle to get Norah to stop jumping in her bed – Lucy has officially started jumping in her crib. She holds on to the side with one hand and shouts, “yump, yump!”
Oh, and yes, Lucy HATES bathtime just like Norah! She cries and screams, “poopy” – I guess she thinks that will get her out of the tub. I know her trick, though.
Lucy likes to throw things from her highchair and as she does she says, “Uh-oh” or “whoops.”
She also likes to mimic everything Norah does. Washing her hands, singing, dancing, everything!!
Lucy loves to say, “No, no, no” like most toddlers, but her favorite way to tell us no is to say, “uh-uh.” Recently, I asked her, “Are you mommy’s baby?” Her response, “uh-uh.”
How does she know that she isn’t a baby anymore?
Lucy is truly a blessing! Having had a rough start at birth, we are so thankful for God’s faithfulness. She is a beautiful, healthy little girl!!!
