All About Lucy: Birthday, Big News, and Sparkles

My, my, how time does fly when you spend your days scrolling the book of faces and try, very unsuccessfully to keep house.  My days are full, but not really as full of what I hoped would be going on this year.  It's funny how so many people say that with one child at home I should be able to do so much.  I am not nearly as busy as I am when the kids are home.  And though this is not my first year with just one at home, I still have this response:


Well, in theory that would be amazing.  But, have you met any 2 year old who lets you do anything, uninterrupted?  Or, if you decide to potty train (oh my goodness I always forget how hard that is) and you feel like a helicopter pilot/mom.  That.  That ALONE fills the days.  Can I have a nickel for every time I say the word "potty"?

(Don't worry.  It was clean.  Never been used)
She's done really well!  I'm super proud of her, though some days I wonder if I started her too early.  But, we persevere!  And I love not worrying about diapers.  

Lucy had her very first dentist appointment, and though I told her she would be going after Mommy, so she could watch, she very seriously informs me that "I am going first."  Well okay then. 

She did uh-mazing.  And, when she was all done, she says, "I have sparkly teeth!" 

Love this girl.
Next up in this awesome girl's adventures is Lucy turning 3!

We had princess stuff everywhere, and are still enjoying the balloon daddy bought for his Princess.  I sent him to a fun store called Party Co for a cake topper.  I couldn't even fit it in the photo!
In not so exciting news, I tried to get to a local Bible study again.  Lucy must have had some serious bad memories as she started crying as soon as we entered the building.  I could hear her crying all the way down the hall again, and it broke my heart.  For a little one with so much energy and spunk, she is not a fan of "daycare" scenarios.  I was really hoping that she would feel comfortable, as I wanted to try to join a gym (though I doubt I will get my tush in the door of one)
Lucy understands so much, will help me remember things in the grocery store and keep the boys in line.  Her hair and curls are the talk of everyone wherever we go, and I just hope that they will stay!  I love that she is all about dresses, girly shoes, princesses, and purses, tea parties and fancy clothes.  It's adorable!
