On the 21st of May our little Lucy turned 2 years old! We were on a little vacation to Zion’s National Park (which I’ll write about later) so I didn’t get to post on that day, but she had a great day. Here are a couple cute pictures of her opening her presents at the hotel:
(Of course Brad is right there to “help” her)
Lucy is such a fun and happy little girl. She laughs and smiles and sings all the time. She sings “Follow the Prophet”, “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” and of all things “Good Morning Baltimore” but she just sings “Oh Oh Oh, look at my hair!” over and over again.
She loves Brad so much and wants to do everything he does. She copies what he says and follows him around like a shadow. So far he seems to enjoy her most of the time and doesn’t mind her tagging along.
On the flip side, Lucy is also very stubborn and likes to do things HER way. The thing that drives me the most crazy is when she just whines instead of actually speaking and saying what she wants. For some reason she thinks if she just whines enough I’ll figure it out. She also likes to be the queen of the castle and order people around. Earlier tonight she was sitting at the table saying she wanted her binkie and I told her to go find it. She said, “No, Mommy go find my binkie.” I told her I was busy doing dishes and that she should go find it and she said, “No, I’m busy eating my snack". Gotta love it. (I did not go find it for her by the way, she can think she’s the queen, but really she’s only the princess and things always go the queen’s way).
When we got back from out trip on Sunday night Lucy decided she wanted to sleep in the toddler bed instead of the crib and has been in the “big girl bed” every night since. I’m hoping at some point she’ll give up the binkie just as easily if I let her do it on her time.
Two is such a fun age and I look forward to spending this year watching Lucy grow and develop her personality even more. I love her so much and can’t imagine our little family without her smile.
Here she is with the cupcakes she took to daycare for her birthday treat – Happy Birthday Lucy Mae!
