Lucy is really enjoying her hands--she learned to clap, and claps A LOT!

I love how she kind of gets distracted looking at them, slows it down to check out the process, and then just has to clap for how great at clapping she is :)

She is such a friendly girl!  She smiles and peeks at everyone we meet.  At the grocery yesterday, there was a large, kind of rough-looking man behind us in line.  She was leaning to the side to peek around me and she was smiling all twinkly-eyed like she does.  She said a big, "Hi!" and waved.  I turned around to see his reaction.  He was leaned forward and grinning right back.  He even waved!  We're making friends everywhere!

This was the first week of school.  It went SO well--I think I'm going to love my new job (teaching English learners in our district).  It's very different, but really good.  I HATED leaving Lucy, but I can tell she's having such a good time.  I walked in one afternoon to find her in an exersaucer, surrounded by 4 or 5 older kids, who were singing and keeping her entertained.  She LOVES the kids, and her sweet sitter.  I'm just missing her--it seems like we only get a few hours to play now.

Here is another little bit of her talking.  I like how she starts out smiley and then gets so serious!  And I love the lips all puckered out when she's serious.  So sweet!


  1. Love it!!! She's hilarious, what a sweeter!!

  2. She's such a doll. Praying for you as you head back to work!
