Lucy got her first haircut a few weeks ago. She sported a bit of a mullet for the first week or so but it has grown in quite nicely. Yes, we saved her first curl, slipped it in the little keepsake tin Mrs Brier gave us...it’s so blonde and soft...the hair not the tin
Remember when you were a kid and you would do a karate chop and yell HIIIIYYAAA at the top of your lungs? Well, I accidentally taught Lucy how to do that -not the brightest move given she went through that head butting/class bully phase. But it’s pretty funny watching her wander around the house yelling HIIIIIYYAAA while doing a little chop in the air.
We also taught her to say woooaahh….scary thing is, she actually uses it in context. She busted out with it this morning while we were watching the news and they were showing pictures of the great whites spotted off the Cape…..the sharks were stalking some seals and the aerial shot showed the shadow of the shark in the water. Lucy points at the TV and says woooahhh!
Lucy has also started making this noise that sounds like ROW ROW ROW ROW…she says it over and over again so we starting singing Row Row Row your boat gently down the stream Merrily Merrily Merrily Merrily life is but a dream….which makes her laugh and clap.
This morning, Sean informed that she has been trying to say the word school….which as we all know is much easier to say than Mummy. She sits in her car seat and as they get closer to Puddle Duck, she starts chattering in a vain attempt to say, what we think, is school.
One of our favorite things Lucy does: She opens up her books to her favorite pages and just leaves them laying there open so she can wander back and look at them whenever she wants! Really quite a charming gesture….and oh how she loves her books! Now make no mistake, I am under no impression that Lucy is a future Mensa candidate….she is not reading (half the time they’re upside down) she just likes looking at the pictures….and petting them if it happens to be an animal. And if there is a picture of food, she has been known to lick the page…..
