Well, another first has come along! Lacy is beginning to use eating utensils at the table. She still has a long way to go before becoming proficient, but she's getting there! Here Lacy is enjoying a not so often treat of pudding at Ma'am and Bapa's house. (Lacy was 16 months at the time of these photos)

Our good friends and next door neighbors, the Rogers, gave Lacy a hula girl costume for Christmas and as today we are inside due to frigid weather outside, I had Lacy try it on. Not only did she LOVE it, but I am super sad we did not have a blank tape for our video camera because she also DANCED in it. And, let me explain that Lacy's dance is usually a slow sway from side to side...PERFECT hula! She had me laughing! So I did grab the camera and take some cute photos of her in her adorable costume. Thanks Rogers for the fun gift. I foresee many a days of Lacy yelling "on, on, on"...big hit! (16 months)

So, here we are again, another season of American Idol! And yes, I am a HUGE fan. I have to be honest, I actually am not excited for this first round of auditions. As I have been watching it every year, I am SO over the same 'ol, same 'ol people pulling crazy stuff to get ON tv, and the producers putting terrible people through because they think it MAKES good tv. I just am tired of it. BUT...occasionally, I still chuckle and get a kick out of clueless and untalented ones I am watching...occasionally! Oh, and how about...did anyone else cry for poor Temptress?? That got me too. So why do I watch this early if I don't completely enjoy? Well, I enjoy listening to those who do get the 'golden ticket' and try to pick out the top finalist this early in the show. Usually I pick quite well. And, I always have to pick one of the girls who is amazingly talented to win as I like to live vicariously through her as she sings away to big crowds! Did anyone see there is already a golden ticket winner from Oregon...AND...a country gal...looks I may have found my girl already, but we'll see! Many more auditions to go!
It seems we have found another contestant clearly wanting tv time, as he is FORTY-FOUR years olds- clearly passed the age limit, who has become another phenomenon. He is Renaldo Lapuz. We'll see if this turns out to be another William Hung. Here is a fun YouTube video of a remix from the audition. Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdor4mTynNw
Here is a funny photo as I had to introduce Lacy to American Idol. You can see both Lacy and Simon checking each other out....haha!! Lacy appears to be not so sure, but over time she'll come to see he's the best judge:)

It's amazing what a little 1 year old is capable of remembering. Lacy is usually in Portland around twice a month and most times we spend at least a little time with the children my mom takes care of. I think it is so amazing to see the difference in her responding to the kids in our playgroup to all the kids my mom cares for. Lacy gets SO excited to see my mom's gang. We have known most of them since they were newborns, except Lucy who was 14 months when we met her:) There is Fritz 8(ring bearer in our wedding), the another family with Lucy 6, Phoebe 3, and Helen 22 months. It's been fun to have Helen and Lacy together. Helen is super tiny and Lacy was not while a baby and most think the two are twins with similar hair and eye color. They are pretty cute together! This week while staying with my parents, Lacy could not get enough of HEL-EN, and Be-be and we saw them almost everyday. Sadly she asked for Fritz everyday, but we did not see him this time. Here are some pictures from this week and some older pics of the kids together.

OK, I know, I KNOW. I post SO many photos, but that's just they way our blog is going work:) So, just get used to all the scrolling and all will be well! So, to get to it, Lacy went to OMSI for the first time this week and LOVED it. It was amazing to see this usually cautious child, just take off and go bonkers with all the fun. She did not know where to go or where to look, as they had big colorful kites hanging all over the ceiling, so from floor to 'up high' so much to see. We met my mom and Phoebe and Helen there and the three enjoyed playing in the sand, splashing in the water(the fish were Lacy's favorite), and running around in a Northwest exhibit. When we first arrived there were news cameras all around and we stopped to see what all the fuss was about. Boy am I glad we left when we did, shortly after they had a VERY life-like baby T-Rex puppet(roars included) and the girls would have FLIPPED out! :) Phew! Little 3 year old Phoebe is such a sweet little friend to Lacy. She ALWAYS makes sure to include her in the fun her and her sister are having, so adorable to see. VERY fun outing!
