A Lucy Post

This girl continues her journey into taking over the world...
well, at least our family.

One of these days I'm going to figure out how to post
videos because I would love for you to
get a glimpse of her personality.

She is a HOOT.
Although she can be a STINKER too.
And by STINKER, I mean....well, there are no words.

She wants the attention of ALL of us, ALL the time.


I'm sure one of these days she will figure
out how to build a stage out of her
and our living room will turn into a Vegas-style concert hall.

As of late,
she insists on wearing a headband.
She takes no consideration of the style,
color, or......
**It just happens to match her outfit on this day.

Everywhere we go....
this is the look we tote around.
There is no point in fighting it...
This is Lucy we're talkin' about...and it's just gonna happen.

From the time she gets out of bed....until she
climbs back in,
this is the fashion statement that we live with.
And it's not unusual for it to slip completely onto
her forehead...and she doesn't even notice.

We ALL just accept it,
and laugh constantly.

Life is fun with Lucy.
But don't make me explain my newest wrinkles and gray hair.

I think you understand.

Oh man...she is SaraGrace's twin!!! I am cracking up! :) I actually have taken a series of photos of the odd get-ups that SaraGrace wears in public just because....well...she is a fashion diva of her very own style (and not afraid to let us all know). Too bad we live so far away from each other. I think Lucy and SaraGrace would have a blast together--although it might be hard for them to decide who should be the boss or who would suck up all the attention.

Lucy is a hoot! I like her 60;s retro look! Maybe she will start a trend. Ya just have to love those stinker cuties that we have, don't ya!

God is good and has such a sense of humor.

Janet, Kevin, Ted, Philip, and waiting for our Eli (sent in the Provisional Approval last Thursday!!)

I understnad PERFECTLY.

I have Lucy, in the male form...

Tina said...

OMW...this sooooo sounds like Sophie. She is constantly DEMANDING all our attention. She is also very jealous of her siblings. She is in for a big blow when her new brother arrives..even though she will still be the baby I am sure there will be issues.

I love the last picture of the girls.

On the videos, they are so easy and I am NOT internet/computer savvy. JUst upload them to youtube and there is a share link on youtube that sends the video straight to your blog.

I can't figure out the video thing either.

So every since you posted like forever ago about buying things off of Etsy I have been Etsy crazy.

Anyway I have a cool giveaway on my blog you should check out and it has some Etsy things in it.

Love the hairdo! This girl will be a trend setter!!

I don't know how to put videos on the b log either. When you ind out- be sure to share it with us! Love the last pic especially!!

Notice how no one says she is just like my son?! There's a reason for that!!! Welcome to life with GIRLS!!! You may think it gets better when they get older. Don't kid yourself! Just know that no one is judging you when you go out in public with a girl who has INSISTED on choosing her own outfit.(ok, maybe people with no kids but any girl mama knows!) Don't fight it just go with it. I can't tell you when it gets better because my 9 year old went to girl scouts in capris and flip flops last night. You know, 50 degrees is plenty warm enough for flip flops! She did wear her vest though. (Which really set off the whole ensemble!!) Sheri

Lori, I enjoy your blog so much. Macy is a joy to see and Lucy is a roit! She must take lessons from her big brother. I have a couple of "Lucy's" too.

Anyway, I upload videos straight from my camera. When you are posting, there is a video link (next to the photo link) on the posting page. Click it and you will be able to select a video just like photos. It takes a bit for a video to upload.

Thanks for your great blog.

she sounds so much like our Chloe! Most days I feel too stinkin old to parent a child with all of her spunk!
Love all the pics! And, just post your video like you do your pictures. Just choose the "film" picture beside the "photo" one. Trust me... if I can figure it out, anyone can!

I know exactly what you mean when you say "there's no point in fighting it". With Sydney it is easier to just go with it, on some things.

I love to last pic!

Holly said...

I love it! Especially that last picture!

Adeye said...

How absolutely wonderful. I can just tell from the pics that this girl has a BIG PERSONALITY!!! Huge!

Just precious, friend. You are a blessed mommy.
