lucy is 16 months... and a giveaway!











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...

OOO! Lucy left a clip at our house the other day. Rain is VERY concerned that Lucy doesn't have her hair clip! We'll have to remember it next time we see you... Wednesday? Yes, you best enter us in on your giveaway. Ry would kill me if I didn't. He loves those clips. They are "daddy friendly". And I am thinking baby #2 is a boy...that goes for me too lady :) ~Molly

I am an avid reader and I never comment. The hair clips are absolutely adorable!! I have a few nieces that would love love love some :) Happy 16 months Lucy!!

Happy 16 months to Lucy! That picture is adorable with all the hair clips. I can just see my little one doing that!

I think you are having a boy...but mostly because I want to see the cute boy fluff you get for him! :)

C and M said...

Love those clips! So cute ... Lucy too!
I think boy b/c I'd also like to see all the cute boy fluff.

brian said...

lucy is adorable, she is going to be a great big sister!!

Molly said...

Happy 16 months Lucy!

My little gal, Grace is just a few days older than her (born 4/20) :) She would most definitely love new clippies!

I think it's a boy, but I need a belly shot to really make an educated guess ;)

Maria said...

I'm betting girl, though I would love to see how you CD a little boy!

Mady won't leave her hair clips (or ponytails) in either, maybe I'll try your approach and overload her hair.

I'd love your secret in getting the cute things to stay ON the clips. I hot glue and they fall off. Do you sew the bows and stuff to the fabric that sticks to the clip? (if that makes sense)...

Regardless the ones you made are cute!

And I'll guess girl, because I think the idea of 2 girls is fun.

Jodie said...

Those are cute clips. My DD is around the same age as yours (bd is 4.28) I would love to know your secret with the early potty training!
I think the new baby is a boy :)

bethy said...

so cute. i hope you are having a boy so that we get more boy fluff!

Steffanie said...

Ava NEEDS those clips, we don't have too many options here in Key West: (

... I'm also guess girl! : )

Robin said...

You are one talented person. I have definitely been inspired by your "green birthday bash" and am planning one similar for my daughter who turns one this month! I am trying to handmake some of her gifts and all of her decorations. She would love some handmade hair clips! Happy 16 months to Lucy!

Nicole said...

Happy 16th Lucy!
Such cute bows (and diapers!). You have a very talented mommy. I think you will have a younger sister.

Kerri said...

Girl... For some reason I thought you already said you were having a girl. I would be neat if you had a boy though!
