17 Months

It feels so strange that Lucy is 17 months old but she definitely is. When I say 17 months in reference to her age it feels like such a long time, but when I think of 17 months in terms of my trauma? It's nothing at all. 
 Miss Lucy at 17 months is a copy cat. Whatever Penelope does, she can do better. Such as coloring on the walls. She's big into coloring now and prefers markers but will take all of the crayons as a substitute. 
 Lucy absolutely loves food. This girl enjoys food, she might end up being the foodie in the family. She gets excited when you tell her it's time to eat and she frantically runs to her chair to push it out. 
 Which is maybe why she loves the play kitchen so much. She particularly enjoys her tea set but she's just now getting into the "washing dishes" part of her kitchen. 
 Lucy and Penelope fight over these stupid Water Wow pens. We have four books, four pens, but it doesn't matter because they always want the one they don't have. It's frustrating. 
But at least these she can't draw on her face, or the walls, so that's a bonus. 

She isn't talking yet but every once in awhile we hear beginnings of: yes, no, dadda. Her hair is almost a reddish tint, which means every kid has a different color of hair! She remains a total sweetheart, loves to give hugs and kisses, really likes The Wiggles, dancing, music, her soft purple blanket, socks, and wearing shoes. She's the shoe fanatic. She loves to throw Twinky's toy, and she's starting to get vocal/angry/scream because Penelope does it over everything. Terrible two's are horrific and I hate that Lucy is picking up tips. 

We'll see what this month brings. My hope is it gets "warmer" so we can play in the snow. I hate winter but I'll take one for the team if it means they'll nap.

Aw, what a cutie! I think Lucy and my youngest niece would really get along. Mine is about 18 months and she's SO the foodie of that family - she will eat all day, and she'll eat anything. It's kind of adorable though. She knows the sign language for eat and more and she's always doing the more one and you can't say no to that!!
