Lucy Turns ONE

On October 25th my little Lucy Joy turned One year old! She has become such a ray of sunshine and happiness in my life. I'm so glad we have her. Here's what she's up to lately!


  • 17.5 lbs
  • 28 inches
  • 7 teeth
  • Still scooting-not crawling or walking
  • not sleeping through the night..but we're working on it-she used to!
  • signs "more"
Her favorite things:

  • She LOVES to walk around with her walker (or walls, tables, & furniture). Every time she does it she breaths loudly and happily and has the absolute biggest smile on her face
  • She loves to stand up and then sit back down. She uses her 2 hands to push off the ground and she likes to nurse while standing this way too- like an ostrich or something.
  • She loves grapes and veggie straws.
  • She loves putting circle items on her wrists like bracelets. My hair ties, bracelets, and toy rings all go straight onto her wrists these days.
  • She loves to try to plug things in. She'll sit for several minutes at a time attempting to plug my phone into a cord and trying to plug the cord into an outlet. It makes me laugh.
  • She loves my phone (of course) and I can distract her pretty well with youtube nursery rhymes
  • bathtime and splashing of course
  • playing in the sand
  • markers/pens/paintbrushes/make up brushes
Things she hates (and lets us know):

  • Carseat
  • Getting her diaper changed
  • Getting dressed or undressed
Things she seems indifferent to:

  • Winston
  • Eating (ugh such a challenge!)
Other cute things she does that I don't want to forget

  • I usually bring her into my bed when she wakes up in the night and sometimes I wake up before she does. My favorite thing is to see her open her eyes and get the biggest smile on her face when she sees me. She loves me!
  • She likes to scrunch her nose up and breath really fast like something is really funny and it always cracks me up.
  • she thinks it's funny to put her hands in my mouth 

Motherhood was a tough adjustment for me. Lucy was not an easy baby and I really felt like I got one pulled over on me. These last few months though I can happily and honestly say I LOVE being a mom, her mom. She makes me laugh and does the cutest things each day. It is the COOLEST thing to watch your baby learn. The first time she signed "more" I was so amazed haha. I'm enjoying this stage we're in and often think how much I will miss this sweet phase of her life when she grows up. I love her tiny baby hands and tiny baby feet. She just keeps getting cuter! My heart grows with love for her everyday and I can't imagine how much love I'll have for her in even 50 years! I hope the best for her. She is so so dear to me and I hope she knows it.
and thanks to Mindy for these pictures of lucy! I'll share more from her birthday party soon!


  1. I scrunch up my nose and breathe really fast too! Dane calls it panting and says it's not nearly as cute when I do it. Working on eliminating that by 31. ;) She is a doll baby! I just love her!

  2. She is super sweet Mickelle, you will definitely be pleased you recorded all these stats & memories one day!

  5. I've always loved your honesty about her not being an "easy baby." I have really enjoyed seeing you go from a mom who just hopes for a day when her child doesn't cry all the time to one that's genuinely enjoying the experience! Happy 1st Birthday, little Lucy!
