Lucy - 10 months update

Another month with Lucy. Besides toys and clothes she also got her "two front teeth for Christmas". This is a good thing for Lucy, who appears to belive that if something is smaller than her face that she should try to eat/chew on it. Often times she can be observed with a toy in her mouth looking around or actively playing with other toys.

Lucy does really love to play with her brother and below can be seen playing with him in the super fort we built in the living room. She really likes to push things around, expecially a ride-on choo-choo train toy. She now understands when it will hit the wall or couch and gets upset that it is not still moving. One of us ends up following her around and keeping the train from getting stuck. She will do this for up to 15 minutes or so at a time.Her she is in the fort with Mommy and brother Micah. She really likes her books now and will sit and look at the "touch and feel" books with the fake animal fur. She also will kiss each animal in the book.
She is also aware of bows in her hair now, so it saddens Jill that it is not as easy to keep her bows in place like it was for this November picture. She is also learning to wave and ended up with saying "Momma" for her first word, just like her brother.Laughing-No explanation needed here.

9 Months

Well, I know you're probably not watching the calendar waiting for an update from us, but we completely skipped 9 months. SAD! It's just that December is so busy. Anyways, I'll do a little update just for my benefit. Really, from 8 months to 9 months Lucy did not have any major accomplishments. She was crawling faster, walking behind her push toy a little stronger, and being her normal, crazy, active self. She did figure out that every time she put something in her mouth I would come finger sweep it. As I came towards her she would turn and crawl the other direction. So smart! Who does like someone elses finger in their mouth?
She always looked cute!

Some Christmas Pictures (December catch-up)

Picture with Santa at the Ranchos Christmas Tree Farm. (This is Micah's third year getting his picture taken with the same Santa)
Decorating our "Lucy proof" Christmas tree. Putting it on a table saved alot of trouble with her getting ornaments or pulling it over.
More decorating. At other houses Lucy really enjoyed the floor height trees, lights and ornaments. She did pretty good and didn't pull any of them over.
Micah making some cookies with Tusci (Aunt Jenny) *Pronounced Two-shee. Jenny stayed with us for a week and helped us to do atleast one fun thing everyday. We still have cookies from the baking marathon completed at our house.
More cookies with mommy.
Christmas lights in Clovis.
Lucy chillin in her Christmas dress. Worn and washed several times as she didn't seem too concerned about keeping it clean.
Johnson family Christmas with the Christmas Story pageant. (Still really short, but we are using unpaid and unpaid actors so the expectations are not too high yet)
Lost sheep getting ready to eat the shepherds head band.
Micah opening his first present. He had been eyeing this Batman Bat Cave for several months now at the store.
Jill with her Christmas dinner on the 24th with the Johnson Family.
Micah leaving out cookies for Santa Christmas Eve.
