Lucy's First Food

Lucy is a bit of a pipsqueak. Mom has been working on fattening her up for the last month after she had some issues gaining weight. After dropping off the charts, she is now back into the 5th percentile, weighing in at a whopping 13 lbs and 4 ounces. She is now 24 inches tall, which is also pretty small for her age. Lucy also celebrated a half-birthday recently, which means she gets to start eating lots of different purees. Like her siblings before her, Lucy started out with a little bit of rice cereal.

It was shocking.

And a little bit messy.

Her hand is much more interesting.

Look who captured the spoon!

Who needs a spoon when you can eat the cereal directly off your messy hand?

Lately, Oliver has been getting himself into some real predicaments.

We're not entirely sure how he got into this position.

He also managed to get himself stuck in Lucy's Exersaucer.

Turns out that if you put both legs through the same hole, it is very difficult to extract yourself. Yes, that diaper is hot pink. Yes, he likes it. No, we're not worried that it will affect his masculinity.

The Exersaucer is much more fun if you use it properly.

Sometimes getting up at the crack of dawn means that we can't make it through the afternoon.

Oliver ended up like this by the end of that nap:

Seems that couch naps happen frequently around here.

Before passing out in an upright position, Oliver got a hold of an orange marker and decorated himself a bit.

Lucy Au Naturel

Lucy got to have a little nakey time the other day. It is just as important as tummy time, perhaps more so since it allows her little bum to air out.

Turns out that nakey time can be lots of fun.

Nakey time also gives one access to one's toes.
