Walking Lady and Other Random Thoughts...

I've been slacking on the blogging lately, but honestly, it is just hard enough to just keep up with life in general, let alone sitting down to blog. Tonight though the Mr is at class and Lucy went down at 7:00 pm on the dot without a peep, so immediately I grabbed a(nother) glass of wine and settled myself down on the couch with The Office on in the background. And..."ahhhhhhhhhh". Breathe.

I had something good to write tonight, I've always got ideas in my head that I think of throughout the day (and quite often in the middle of the night) but tonight, as I sit here in a (incredibly infrequent) moment of complete quiet and solitude, I cannot think of a single thing to write. So I apologize for the mish-mash of random updates and thoughts tonight. Blame the fact I get up at 4:45 am most days...or the 2 glasses of wine I'm in the process of imbibing. You choose.

So, a lot going on right now. The biggest news? Miss Lucy Lou is walking...er..make that running. She's been hanging on to things for months now and has been really tentative about just letting go and suddenly over the past couple weeks she's been a walking fool! She always requests to "wa" in the house, to the car, in the store...everywhere! No more Mama carrying that big girl around,no sir! She is going places -- fast! It's so cute most of the time she just takes off at a little tip toe run. My big girl!

One thing about Lucy that I haven't shared before? She's got the most adorable low, throaty voice. When she laughs it is all gravelly and low, totally hilarious coming from such a tiny,dainty, sweet looking girl! She says lots of words now, her current roster includes: "Apple" "Cat" "Mama" "Dadad" "Book" "Down" "Up" "Pupup" "Done" "Bath" "Mine" "Doll" and, of course, the ever wonderful, "No No No".

I don't have a whole a lot of other news. When I'm not working I'm with Lucy and Rob. Pretty simple really. I still miss her like crazy every minute at work, so that it still tough and honestly, I don't know if that will ever change...

So, since I'm blabbering randomly tonight and am contemplating a third glass of wine (its hard to type and hold a glass of wine you know, a girls gotta have priorities) I'm going to leave you with some of out latest pictures over the past month or so:

I love the one where she's laying her head on the dog's back. So sweet. I haven't been inspired to blog, either. I am planning to do that tonight, hopefully. Have I ever told you how much teething sucks? It sucks.

Love the pictures, (the one of her and Sahara in the stroller is my fav:))! And, I don't think I have ever told you, but I am in love with Luce's voice!!

The pictures with the dog are too stinking cute!

It's so nice to know that I'm not the only Mom in the world to have more than one glass of wine...who just has one? I need multiples!

Great pictures! I am totally understanding why you are so exhausted and haven't been blogging lately ... I'm getting a taste of that lately as well! :) Hope you enjoyed the glasses of wine! GOOD FOR YOU! You deserve it all the way! :)

She is so gorgeous! I love the blue romper she's wearing in the zoo pictures. What a sweet little girl.

And I cannot think of a better combination than wine + The Office...

Shazz said...

She's just so beautiful. My little man isn't far off walking...I'm cringing lol.

I didn't know she was walking! Aww, I need to see that. When are we going to get together? We should. Soon. I'm almost (meaning in the next couple of weeks, MAYBE) ready to start having company over. We'll have to have you guys over for dinner soon. I love the pictures. Lucy is such a cutie!
