44-52 Happy Halloween!

Week 44:  Happy Halloween!

13.5 months

I was just about to post a different picture this morning when I realized that it was halloween and maybe I should do something a bit more themed.  I had not planned to do anything because, well, she doesn’t really care so why bother?  But when I had some extra time this morning I thought “Maybe I should just make some critter ears for her…” and then that turned into making her a whole mouse costume.  I made the sweatshirt too because I had the fleece and didn’t want to wreck a sweatshirt she had already.  She wasn’t too pleased about the makeup and I had to distract her with a toy while I quickly drew it on.

We just went to grandparents and then one of my brothers house before she melted down and we had to go home.  She was a sad mouse.

42-52 Those eyelashes…

Week 42:  Those eyelashes…

13 months

Fun fact: Before I had Lucy, I had very nice eyelashes.  After I had Lucy, well…they are sad.  And Lucy?  She has these crazy lashes.

This was taken (obviously) at bath time.  I was holding up her rubber ducky and dropping it in the water.  The anticipating of the duck dropping was almost too much for her!  Oh…and…those little teeth.  I mean really.

40-52 bedtime routines

Week 40:  Bedtime Routines

12.5 months

We have been absolutely horrible at bedtime routines with Lucy.  I attribute that to the first 6 months being so uncertain, that it was really difficult to establish routine.  Lately I’ve been trying to work on that though.  She doesn’t get the fuzzy robe and slippers after every bath (because it’s just an extra step that we don’t need) but every now and then it’s fun to cozy up in them.  She was very fascinated by the slippers and preferred to hold them rather than have them on her feet.  Babies in bathrobes are just the cutest, am I right?

Oh, and how is it possible that there are only 12 weeks left of the year?  I have yet to do my October review because we’ve had quite a busy week.  October has really snuck up on me!  I can’t believe it’s my birthday next weekend and I haven’t been annoying the whole family about it for weeks already!  What is wrong with me?!
