The Goose is on the loose!
Lucie is crawling! She has a cute crawl where she is on all fours and then she sticks out one leg to push with her foot to go further, faster. We call it her spider monkey crawl. She can now easily go from our living room through the dining room all the way to the kitchen without much trouble, which is a huge improvement. She can maneuver up and over the many thresholds in the apartment without getting tripped up too. She loves to pull to stand, and she moves along the couch from one side to the other. She’s not ready to let go, which is fine! Because the apartment is not totally baby-proofed at this point!
She loves to climb on anything and everything. Up our laps, on pillows, up onto the couch, and most recently as of yesterday, she has started to learn to climb the stairs in our building! Lucie is smiling so much more, she used to be super stingy with those! And it’s an even cuter smile because you can see TWO teeth coming out on her bottom row. She has a lot of fun playing with Bess, they play tug of war and tag. Lucie will just follow Bess in circles as Bess tries to avoid her, ha!
All this activity has raised our little one’s appetite too, and she is now eating three solid (baby food) meals a day plus her bottles of formula. We attempted to experiment to see if she could eat some puffs, but she quickly gagged one out (which was scary), so it looks like we’ll wait a few more weeks before trying that again.
Lucie’s increased therapy schedule is well under way and it is going really well for all of us, especially Rob and Lucie, which we are so thankful for. She has an ALL STAR therapy team, we couldn’t be more thrilled with how invested they are in her and us!
Like we said in her 12 month post, we would be celebrating her birthday for a whole month, and that culminated with a Winter One-derland themed belated birthday afternoon at our apartment with our NYC Family. We had hot chocolate, snacks and desserts, and about half-way through the party it actually started to snow, which was the perfect touch! (It was the first time it had snowed in the city since last winter!)
Hope you enjoy some pictures below!
Love, Los Hicksons
