Phew! It seems like we’ve done a lot since last week’s post. Here we go!
Lucy started gymnastics on Thursday and loved it!
I was so proud not only that she did a back roll over, but also that she let Coach Lynette help her.
At the end of class when Coach Lynette asked where Lucy wanted her stamps, she said “On my legs!”
Torn between wanting to hold her for her entire nap and needing to get some chores done.
Emily’s getting so close to rolling over!
On Friday, Lucy and I went to the Wyandotte Street Fair together. She picked out this adorable cow stuffie, which rode in the stroller more than she did.
And there were SO MANY adorable hair bows. I tried to get her to get one with ladybugs . . . or rainbows . . . or polka dots. But, nope, the only bow she had eyes for was a Ninja Turtle one!
We had friends coming over for dinner Friday night, so I hadn’t planned on staying long at my parents after the fair. But Lucy was having such a good time playing with her cousins so we stayed for awhile. She had a great time doing puzzles with Gordie and Oma . . .
. . . while Aunt Carla played with Emmy.
I really hadn’t planned on swimming, so I didn’t have suits for either of us, or Lucy’s life jacket, but I threw a swim diaper on her and relied on my dad and a giant walrus to keep her afloat.
She discovered the goggles and swim masks!
Lucy is behind the giant walrus. Sadie is so great with Lucy and made sure to stay right by her.
Swimming with Pop!
Look at this cutie trying to get away from Pop!
So after a hot morning at the fair and then a hotter afternoon out by the pool, I drove my two non-napping girls home and tried to quickly clean and vacuum before our friends came over. I also really needed to hop in the shower and rinse off. Emmy was FUSSY so I put her in the carrier and she went right to sleep. But then Lucy was whining about wanting to be held. And I needed to vacuum and clean the bathrooms. Somehow I got it all done, and our friends ended up running a little late so I had time to shower too. Bonus!
Emmy’s new chair arrived on Saturday morning!
Lucy has a super cute pink tricycle that she got for her birthday, but it’s still too big for her to pedal on her own. We saw this little trike outside at a garage sale on Friday, and Matty stopped to get it on his way home. It was only $6!! When we showed it to Lucy on Saturday morning she hopped right on and pedaled away. It was so cute!
We are working on having her look forward rather than down at her feet.
Miss Emmy Roses took a nice nap in the carrier while we rode around in the park.
Lucy kept steering into the grass on the narrow path around the park, so we took her to the back parking lot to get some more room. I had FaceTimed my parents so they could see Lucy ride her bike, and I’m in the background holding up my phone to show them how empty the park was on a beautiful Saturday morning.
We went to Grandma Ri’s for dinner and ordered in some Mexican food. Lucy opted for a peanut butter sandwich and fruit. #shemightnotbemydaughter
Lucy brought her tricycle and did a great job riding it several blocks to the Tot Lot in Grandma Ri’s neighborhood. Emmy got to sit in the shade while we played.
Back at Grandma Ri’s, Emmy snuggled her elephant and watched some baseball.
We have been doing curbside pick up quite a bit lately, but Sunday morning we did a family trip to the grocery.
And took three rides on the penny pony!
Remember how I said Lucy has been obsessed with her Little People figures lately? Well we took all of them in her backpack when we went to visit Grandma Ri. While packing up to leave, I accidentally forgot to pack her doggie. When we got home that night Lu got right into the tub and then to bed, and then we went to the grocery as soon as she got up Sunday morning. So, when she finally was able to sit down with her toys, the first thing she said was, “Where’s my doggie?” about twenty times! #uhoh
Matty and I said that the doggie decided to stay at Grandma Ri’s for a sleepover and to play with her birdie statue (which Lucy really likes). Lu was not having it and went right into meltdown mode. We FaceTimed Grandma Ri, and I took a screen shot of my phone because Lucy crying for her doggie while Rita showed her that it was playing with the bird was just too funny. Oh, and Rita ended up coming over for dinner tonight to that the doggie could come home!
And that was our weekend! We have a very busy week ahead, with an outing planned every single day. I like to stay busy, but it’s also exhausting! Play dates, doctor appointments, Kindermusik, gymnastics, and swimming . . . all crammed into the next five days.
Have a great week!
