Some Lucy Love

Being as how I haven't posted any photos of the babe for many moons, here is a little Lucy love.
I have every intention of getting caught up on the last few months! You know how it is... summer is just nuts!
We've had some fun adventures in Utah, Yellowstone, Canada, Seattle, and here at home, so stay tuned! :)

Lucy is almost 7 months! How did that happen?  Here she is in all of her cuteness.
Yesterday we were at a birthday party and my dear friend, Marci, practiced with her new camera. These are the first shots of Lucy that have been taken with a nice camera. All the rest I have of her are just from my basic digital camera. I can't wait to have her do a photo session of the girls and our family! HIRED.  

Lucy is such a smiley, happy baby. She has developed such a fun little personality this summer.

 I just love this baby! She is such a delight to have around!

Lilac Paisley Minky Baby Blanket

Babies, babies babies! It seems like everyone I know has been having babies! I have been busy making blankets and all kinds of fun baby things. I made up a few extra to sell in my my Etsy shop...

This super lush Minky Baby Blanket in Lilac Paisley & Chocolate Brown

These blankets are people's FAVORITES. My girls both have a minky blanket this size and they are so great! Ruby is still super attached to hers. In fact, she's rubbed the corners so much there is a hole in the fabric, which she refers to as "baby blankie's face." She feeds him, he talks, everything. And she hates sleeping without him. Lucy's blanket was the ninja weapon during her fussy weeks as a newborn. I'd wrap her up with it all around her face, stick the binky in and she'd sleep while I held her. They are so great. Perfect size, and super duper snuggly!

Baby Headbands

Here are a few headbands I've made lately...

I really need to get Lucy to model them! However, here is my sweet niece, 
Charlotte wearing the turquoise one. Isn't she precious?

Gotta love all these sweet babies!

Lucy vs Ruby

So I thought I would pull out some photos of Ruby when she was about 3-4 months old, what Lucy is now. I definitely see some resemblance, but I think Lucy has her own look.


 Lucy is so smiley!



 Lucy 3 months

Ruby at 4 months with Nick's darling brother, Matthias... 
who happens to come home from his mission next Friday! We can't wait to see him.

Me with Ruby & Lucy in our Easter outfits on Easter Sunday.

So, it will be interesting to see who Lucy looks like as she gets older. Apparently Ruby is Nick's clone, but it wasn't until she was about 18 months old that her eyes turned brown and her skin was more olive. I think Lucy looks a little more like the Giles side, but I also have people tell me that Lucy looks just like Ruby. So I don't know. What do you all think? 

Regardless, as my mom would say, "All my kids are cute."

"Look, Mom!"

Yesterday while I was getting ready, Ruby was hanging around the bathroom (as usual). She brought this into me and said, "Look, Mom! I made you a birthday cake!" Creativity at its finest.

Lucy's Blessing Day

Lucy got blessed last Sunday. The day couldn't have been more perfect. Nick gave Lucy such a special blessing. I'm so thankful and lucky to have such a great husband who holds and honors his priesthood.

Our new family of four!

 Ruby still trying to get the hang of holding her sister

 That's better...

Lucy's not so sure about this...

 Grandma Giles & Lucy! Happy baby!

Of course we can't get a picture with everyone looking normal. Love Ruby's face.

Mommy & Lucy. She was ready for pictures and the dress to be done!

 Isn't she so cute in that dress?

Ruby's Princess Party

 Ruby with her Princess Ariel cake

 We started off the weekend by celebrating Ruby's 3rd birthday (late). My mom was already coming up for Lucy's blessing, so we decided to have her official birthday party while she was here.
Of course Ruby wanted a princess party. She had been talking about it since Christmas!

 The Ariel cake. Turned out better than I ever would have imagined. Ruby loved getting to keep her when we pulled her out of the cake. I'm not quite ready for naked barbies around the house so I'm glad that Ariel has permanent clothes on her!

 The girls decorated paddles (paper plates & painter sticks) and then hit a bunch of balloons all around the house. It was a hit! (Thanks Melinda!)

Princess Ruby and her very original crown

What's a princess without a crown? Thank goodness for these foam crowns at our local craft store that were only $1. I was so glad we didn't have to make them ourselves. The girls decorated them with jewels, stickers and glitter glue.

 Princess Sienna- just entering the fascinating world of princessdom

 Princess Hannah- look at all those jewels!

Ruby opening presents. The first, a darling parasol umbrella. We played some more games, colored, sang, danced, ate cake and had a wonderful time. Ruby loved every second!

Enjoying the party!
