While at work, I tend to call the house at around 12 noon, which is when I am pumping. I am told by whoever is watching her that when the phone rings she calls out "MAMA!" Smart girl! Her other favorite word is "ni-ni" which translate into "night, night." If we ask her to go night, night, she runs over to a pillow, or a cushion, or a stuffed animal, or a lap, then she places her head down and yells "ni, ni!" It's so adorable. She is also saying "Dada" and "Uh, oh." Another cute thing she does now is wave and blow kisses on command. Also, when you ask her "what does Mama say?," she responds waving her pointer finger saying "na, na, na."
I had the day off on Friday and I took her to the zoo with a friend and her daughter. My friend's daughter is 4, and she was teaching Luci about how the lions roar by roaring herself. Luci gave it her best effort and tried to roar too...she did a pretty good job. Her favorite was the aquarium, especially the penguins.
The past 4 days have been beautiful here, so we have been taking advantage of the weather and have been spending a lot of time outside. She just runs around the yard and the driveway as she laughs, smiles, and screams in delight. Due to the exertion of energy, she totally crashes at night. She falls asleep before she can even finish her bedtime bottle.
We have a busy month ahead of us - in addition to her birthday, we have my birthday, John's birthday, Easter, a surprise birthday party for John's grandmother (who is turning 90!), and hopefully the demolition of our kitchen!
It's hard to imagine that she will be celebrating her 1st birthday in a month...where did the time go? The only thing that I am looking forward to is - no.more.pumping!
Here are pictures from last month:
