It is always a race amongst Lucy's older siblings to see who can get ready first to have the privilege of getting Lucy out of her crib.
Lucy is a climber and quite often gets stuck and needs "help." She was pretty proud of the fact that she climbed the fence, but she soon realized she didn't like being up there and wanted me to get her down. She was bugged I stopped to take a picture before helping her.
Lucy's facial expressions crack me up. Her expressions with her eyebrows have been known to get a few laughs!
Lucy LOVES books! Her favorite books are about animals and babies! She loves the book Brown Bear, Brown Bear as well as The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry and the Big Hungry Bear. Lucy also likes a book called Babies. Lucy could read books forever! After we read a book, Lucy tells me more or again if she would like the book to be read again.
