recent accomplishments include:
~using the potty chair while we're at home
~going down the big, twisty slide at the park all by herself
~putting away her bath toys (don't try to help--it'll just make her mad)
~taking looooong afternoon naps in her crib, instead of in her carseat (big achievement, people)
~helping to feed the dog
~climbing in and out of her high chair (and atop the kitchen table) unassisted
~rattling off words like watermelon, tortilla, chalk, milk, make, broom, apple, ice, post office, silly, hot, warm, cold, swim, naked, etc--this girl has a vocabulary!
~being "nice" to our dog and cat (does anybody remember elmyra from tiny toons--yeah, lucy's "nice" is kind of like that).
cheers to lucy...
and on to the giveaway! i spent the bulk of lucy's naptime today making hair clips for her, seeing as how she's lost (or chewed apart) all of the ones that i made her before. i might have gone a little overboard--maybe?
someone tell me why it is that when i put one or two clips in lucy's hair, she won't leave them in for more than a few moments, yet when i put 30 clips in lucy's hair, she won't let me take a single one out? she must be officially a toddler. anyhow, as a belated blog-a-versary (300 posts!) and as a celebration of lucy's 16th month birthday, simply leave a comment here and you'll be entered to win a set of 4 coordinating hair clippies, handmade with love and zeal by your loyal blogger. winning entry will be chosen by random number generator on the morning of the 4th. good luck! and if you're stuck for words, would you mind telling me if valleybaby #2 is going to be a boy or a girl? i'm getting kind of impatient over here, with all of this waiting it out...
