Goodbye 2011 and Hello 2012

Yes I’m guilty …. blogging has taken the back seat the second half of 2011.  So I’m going to put in photos of the most important thing that happened to us in 2011 and that is Lucy.  Here is Lucy over the past 8 months….

Day 1: Less than 1 hour old

4 Months old (August 28, 2011)


Lucy had a hair sticking up problem up until the fourth month.  Then it started to lay down once it got a little bit longer.  Some of her milestones included holding her head up, sitting up on her own, going on her first hike, rolling over and even getting her first bank account.

6 Months old (October 28, 2011)


7 Months old (November 28, 2011)


8 Months old (December 28, 2011)


Now Lucy can crawl, stand up along the edges of things, eat solid foods, babbling a lot more in her own language, has four chompers and play little games with you.  We’re looking forward to see what she’ll be able to do in 2012.

Here are our top ten videos of her on YouTube:

Lucy’s First Hike at Iron Bear Mountain

We went on our first hike a little over two months after having Lucy.  Doug, Naomi, Kevin and Susie went on the hike.  We went on was the Iron Bear trail in the Wenatchee National Forest on July 9th.  It was a beautiful day for a hike.

There were a lot of wild flowers in bloom.  Pretty purples, yellow, and white.

We could see Mount Rainier in the distance

Nick was a champ, he carried Lucy, all the camera gear, AND his water

Susie was a champ too!  She is 6 months pregnant in this photo.

Lucy was a happy little girl on the hike.  Her hair is really standing up!

The hike overall was beautiful, it definitely was a hard hike for me so soon after having Lucy.  Both of my big toe nails turned black and was a lot steeper than anticipated.  In the end we did a total of 6.3 miles round trip which definitely wasn’t a short hike, but I’m proud of all of us getting out there and doing it.

Sod Party

So it’s been almost two and a half months since our last blog post.  A lot has happened.  I’ll try and get everything in order.  On June 30th we finished sodding the front and side of the house after the sprinklers and curbing were put in.  Here are a few photos from the sod party.

Lucy is two months old here and overseeing the sodding project

Here are the two pallets of sod

Everyone working really hard and fast

It took about 40 minutes to sod everything with everyone there.  Thanks Tara, Susie, Kevin, Bob, Brandon, Jenny and James for all your help!
