taking a bath

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

Nothing special to write about tonight. Just cute pics in the tub! This little girl certainly does love the water. I am looking forward to taking her to the beach next summer!


One thing of note: Lulu has discovered that she has a tongue in her mouth and she sticks it out every chance she gets. You can see the beginnings of it creeping out in the second picture here.

lookit that lil belly!

Snuggled up in her bath towel.

Bath time is usually pretty fun and she really likes to have her hair shampooed. Squeaky clean and smelling really nice thanks to Burt’s Bees shampoo & body wash! We’re so spoiled!

Oktoberfest, yah?

Monday, October 27th, 2008

Yesterday was a pretty busy day for such a little girl. Lulu spent a few hours in the early afternoon down in Braintree with her Grammy & Grampy Frazier while Mom and Dad went to a theology lesson about baptism. She had lots of fun there (and even took a nap on her grandmother).

We headed back up to Salem to avoid getting home too late. On the way back to the house we got an invite by Miss Gwendolyn to stop in at the Witch City Oktoberfest tent for a beer. The weather was nice, the boys were in lederhosen and the girls in dirndl and Lulu was in a great mood. She was all smiles while the ompah band, Bavarian Hofbrau played. We didn’t stay for very long but the time we were there was really fun.

First day of daycare!

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

Today went off without a hitch. Forrest dropped Lulu off this morning and I made it through my workday with barely a tear in my eye.

Here’s the daycare’s journal entry from today:

Lulu started her day with some cuddles from Ms. Karen. She had some great smiles. Relaxing in the swing-looking all around her new classroom. Lulu made her footprint for the birthday wall. She was not such a fan of painting today. Some belly time for Lulu-strong girl holding up her head and watching her new friend Ronan. Very short naps. Played on the mat and watched everything around her. Great first day!

And on the new development this evening: GIGGLES!

In recent weeks I’ve notice a little laugh here or there from her, but it seemed sort of arbitrary. It was usually in response to dressing or undressing. But tonight while we were playing together she distinctly let out the cutest belly laugh over and over again in response to the silly faces I made at her. I was afraid that I would miss out on her first laugh, but I should have known that my baby would save them for me!

Twinkle, twinkle little bat How I wonder what you’re at! Up above the world you fly, Like a tea-tray in the sky

Lewis Carroll

Way before Lulu was even born, her Auntie Mel bought this cute bat hat. Up until now, her head’s been way too small to wear it. It is the silliest little hat, but she looks adorable in it and garnered much attention from the large crowds of tourists around town!

We’ve all had colds in recent weeks and being out in the crisp, fall air didn’t help contain Lulu’s constantly runny nose. Forrest made me take this video. It’s too funny not to share!

Every day is Halloween…

Sunday, October 12th, 2008

…especially when you’re a Salem baby! Yesterday we went out into the chaos and crowds of downtown Salem to take it all in. Here’s Lulu modeling one of her many Halloween outfits! This one says “I love my mummy.”
