My dear Lucy,
You are now 41 months old, and so very sassy! You are so smart, and know exactly what you want and how you want it. Sometimes you are so ridiculous I can't help but laugh (on the inside). One day you cried and raged at the world because daddy packed Ruby's lunch in the orange lunch box not the green lunchbox. "BUT it says R for Ruby on the green lunch box and L for Lucy on the orange lunch box and don't you know orange is my favorite because yellow is my favorite color?" Trust me on this, Lucy, daddy won't make that mistake again.
You are so in love with McKay still. You want to be just like him, and do all the things that a 12 year old boy can do. You talk about him almost every day, and make him presents all the time. He graciously loves you back and it's so very sweet.
One day I caught you laying on top of mabel, and when i asked you to stop you said 'It's ok mama! I'm giving her adjustments!' We had to have a talk about who was aloud to give adjustments after that.
You say the funniest things. Here are some highlights: You only want to eat the 'wobbly' french fries. When you get annoyed with Ruby you shout at her "Stop looking at me!" or "stop talking to me!" (even when we aren't talking to you). You used to call strawberries "SLAWberries" but you figured out how to say it and now you won't go back.
When you get excited or frustrated you start talking so fast and everything is "because"… like "i went to the bathroom because i had to wash my hands because i was outside because it was cold and because i wanted to play with Jake" It's so adorable.
We went to a Christmas lights display and you LOVED it. You and Ruby ran around shouting about all the different colors and which ones were your favorite (yellow, of course)
You love doing stuff as a 'whole family'.
We have lots of meet ups and play dates with Cormac and Flannery.
OMSI is always a win.
Sometimes in the car you and Ruby are BFF. Sometimes the longest car rides are longer than I can handle.
We went to Auntie Bugs for a big family chirstmas party. You read some books to Nana and Gpa.
We also left cookies out for Santa and carrots for the reindeer. It was pretty exciting to see that they had eaten them in the morning!
You are a sweet sweet elf, little Lucy!
Christmas morning was so much fun with you! you were so happy to give your daddy and sisters presents.
You got a REAL tool set for Christmas and went straight to work helping daddy to assemble your new rocker board.
Dressing the same makes you SO happy. You like to choose Ruby's clothes (she doesn't care as much as you do) so that you both have things that are the same, even if it's just both leggings and shirts.
For new years eve we went to a dance party.
You can cut a serious rug, kiddo.
You absolutely loved being pulled in the sled
It was cold, but so much fun!
Eventually you took a turn pulling me and Mabel on the sled! Go go go!
And you pulled Ruby around too.
You are SO TALL. You are already and inch and a half taller than Ruby was at 4, and you're only 3.5!
You guys love each other so very much.
You love going to the zoo, and you LOVE the elephants!
You and Ruby and Cormac have so much fun together, even though sometimes you drive each other mad (like when someone throws snow at your face)
My darling Lucy, being your mama is so much fun. You are funny and kind and so very smart. You make me smile and laugh and yell and cry, but you at the end of the day, I am so happy that you are mine and I am yours.
All my heart, Mama
