Lucy's Little Friends

When were in San Jose last weekend, our friends Brianna and Andrew brought their children over to my parents' house to meet Lucy. Good times were had by all. Olivia desperately wants a baby sister, and Lucy was happy to stand in for the day.

I think this is quite possibly one of the cutest photos that Dave has taken yet. You gotta love Jojo's little hat:)

I'm sorry it's been so long since my last post! We've been traveling up a storm these last few weeks, and it's been going great.

Lucy does really well on airplanes (praise the Lord!). She's already been on six flights, which is quite a feat for a 10 week-old. We think she enjoys the ambient sound of the jet engines and being close to Mommy and Daddy.

We went to Phoenix for almost a week...

... then Albuquerque for one night (yikes!), and now we're in San Jose for two nights.

Lucy has a had a wonderful time visiting both sets of grandparents.. and they loved every minute of it too :)

She has been smiling a TON and it's been so much fun.

The Heller family is gearing up to take a big trip out west. We're going to AZ, CA, and NM. We'll be gone for almost 2 weeks. I thought Lucy needed some cute warm weather clothes, so I finished up this outfit for her today. I stole the idea for the onesie from my friend Alishia. The one Alishia made is still too big, and I can't wait for Lucy to grow into it.

ALSO... Lucy laughed for the first time yesterday, and treated us to more laughter today.

Guest Storage

When we heard that Lucy was on her way, we needed to turn the guest bedroom into a nursery for her. BUT, we love having guests and still wanted to have a comfortable place for them to stay. With that in mind, we needed to be a little creative.

We decided to turn our storage area downstairs into a make-shift guest quarters. It's not ideal, but we tried to make it as cozy as possible.

Here are some before and afters:

Lucy has been sick for the past few days, but today she woke up feeling more like herself. Here's a photo that Dave snapped of her in her car seat (which we've nicknamed "The Happy Seat").

Looking Back

I just came across this video of Lucy and I just HAD to share it. I cannot believe how much she's grown since then.

At the end of the video, Dave says "How could you cry when I'm kissing you?"

Cousins and Elephants

My cousin's little boy, Bryce, celebrated his second birthday last Saturday. Dave, Lucy and I were so thrilled to be in Costa Mesa to celebrate with them. I decided to make Bryce a little Republican shirt (I knew his parents would love it :). He's such a cute little model!

Happy birthday Bryce.

The Heller family took their first trip to California all together.

Lucy was happy to fly (praise the Lord!). We're hoping the flight back to Nashville tomorrow goes just as well :).

She saw the ocean for the first time...

... and met her great grandpa for the first time

.. and all these "firsts" made Lucy and Mommy sleepy...

... but really happy!
