Lucy's Birthday

I realize it's been over a month since Lucy's birthday party but I decided I would post a few pics. This year we thought it would be fun to take her to Wilderness at the Smokies and invite family to come along. We had a blast!
There was a wave pool, a surf rider, an indoor/outdoor hot tub, several really fun water slides and a couple kid areas.

 This was Owen's first time in a swimming pool. At this age Lucy loved the water! but Owen wasn't so sure lol. I think it might have been all the people and commotion. It was very loud in there :)
He did love Lucy's sharks though lol
On Saturday we had a birthday celebration
The birthday girl! :)
After having pizza and cake for lunch we went back to swim some more
 Hanging out while Ashley waited in line to do the Surf Rider
Sweet baby Owen :)
She did awesome! Way to go Aunt Boo! 

Happy Birthday to my sweet THREE! year old :)

I'll leave you with these comparison pics from her 3rd and 1st Birthday. I thought it was cool how similar they looked

Props to my friend Holly for taking this one...

My little artist

Lucy has never been one to draw anything on her own. She always wants "Mommy or Daddy to do it". She'll say "You draw it" or "You color it" while she sits there and watches. But recently she grabbed a piece of paper and drew this...
When I asked her what it was she said "It's a picture of you and me" lol...(I'm assuming I'm the one on the right). I was pretty impressed that she gave me two eyes, a nose, and a mouth. She even drew legs and feet! :)
I think it's all that practice with lines and circles and loops and curls from the Usborne books :) It must be giving her more confidence.

And a couple of weeks ago she drew this on the chalkboard and said it was an octopus lol
I think this might have been her first "drawing".
I love how she's getting creative and drawing on her own. So proud! :)

Sweet Siblings

 Lucy is such a sweet big sister!...(well, most of the time lol ) As Owen has gotten older it's been so much fun to watch them interact. Here's a few pictures from the last couple of months...

Story time :)
  It didn't last for long but I thought it was cute that Lucy wanted to read to him :)
  Learning to share her toys :)
Copying her baby brother lol
 Giving Owen a bottle. He barely fits in her lap! haha
Holding the bottle all by himself! :)
Lucy always asks if she can feed Owen his baby food. I must say it gets quite messy but maybe if I let her practice it will pay off one day lol
Silly girl
 Playing with Owen's toys
Watching Sissy play her Innotab
  Wagon ride! :)
I love my sweet babies! :)

Great Nana

 My sweet Nana recently passed away after being sick for the last few months. She was 94 years old. She had four children, eleven grandchildren, and thirteen great grandchildren.

Here are some pictures of Great Nana and Lucy taken almost three years ago . (We named Lucy after her great grandmother, Lucille )

 "Great Nana" with all her great grandchildren. Twelve in this picture and thirteen when Owen was born :)
The grandchildren (minus Anna)
  ...and the grandchildren's spouses :)
These were taken during our visit last August shortly after Owen was born.
We love you Nana! You will be missed!

7 Months Old!

 It's hard to believe my little baby is 7 months old! This boy loves to eat! I started introducing solid food when he was about 6 months old and it didn't take him long to get the hang of it :) He can easily eat 3 big jars of baby food in one sitting.
 Big Sister helping out...
Love his little bird mouth :)
 Post dinner snack lol
and snooze :)
 He cut his first tooth about 6 weeks ago. I was kind of surprised because Lucy didn't have any teeth until she was 8 months old. But now he has both of his bottom teeth and I'm pretty sure he's cutting more...
  He also had his first doctor's appointment at 6 months. He weighed 17.5 lbs and was 24 inches long. I love my big boy! :)

  LOVE these cheeks!
 Things Owen is doing at 7 months: 
  • Reaching for everything in sight
  • Rolling over and starting to scoot around the floor 
  • Putting his paci in his mouth by himself
  • Sitting up with a little support 
  • Watching everything his big sister does :)  
  • Wearing 12 month clothes!
