Lucy's Blessing

We had Lucy's baby blessing on Sunday, which was awesome (she didn't even cry!) We had a little get-together at our house afterward. It was pretty chaotic, so I didn't get as many pictures as I would have liked, but here are a few.

The dress Lucy was blessed in was also the dress that his sisters and all his nieces have been blessed in. It's over 50 years old. (The Sesame Street diaper really accentuates the ensemble). I wonder if it had been soaked in something delicious over the course of that 50 years, cause she sure did love chewing on it.

My brother and Lucy. She was a total trooper with all the people over at our house. Until now, I don't think she knew that many people even existed.

They all love Sterling!

The little guys immediately found spots in front of the tv. The big guys were jealous.

Our little family, right before we let Lucy escape in to something a little less frilly (and less prone to damage if she pooped on it).

Thanks so much to everyone who came and participated and helped out, especially all of you who travelled to be here. It was such a great day, and we really appreciate everyone coming and being a part of it.

Eat it up, yum.

Lucy's been feeling a little left out, what with this being the holiday season, and everyone eating yummy holiday treats except her. So we let her in on the action by giving her her first solid food. Admittedly, rice cereal is not the most festive of Thanksgiving delicacies, but it's definitely one step closer to turkey and stuffing.

Her reaction to her first food from a spoon? I can't really say we got much of a reaction at all. She seemed totally unphased by the whole thing, and more than a little bored. Which I'm thinking is an entirely appropriate reaction to liquified rice.
