Baby takes a trip

Our good friends the Prins’s gifted Lucy with a Corelle (I think I’m spelling that right, but Nat, you can correct me since I don’t want to go into Lucy’s room while she’s asleep clutching it, to sneak a peak at the baby’s belly) doll.  I specifically remember Nat saying that these were the BEST dolls ever, and that her girls loved them.  Not cheap, but worth every penny.

Lucy didn’t seem so into hers in the beginning.  I was sad to think Nat’s hard earned money might have gone to waste.

Then, somewhere along the line, and I don’t know when, baby worked her way into Lucy’s life and became a staple.

Baby is just “baby”.  No cute nickname.  No real name.  Just.  Baby.

Well, baby went on vacation, and boy did she have a good time:

resting up for a big day at the pool

I think Lucy just discovered that Baby peed her pants

Clean Baby, happy mother

A talk with grandpa about pool safety and not running....

Getting a time out from Lucy for trying to get in the pool with her clothes on and for splashing other kids. Tssk, tssk.

Who let baby lay out in the sun all day every day??

Baby's 3rd major fall after being dropped down the stairs, and out the airport window....


Someone saw Lucy with her baby yesterday at the Centre and asked why she was so dirty.  Lucy explained that she washed her shirt (in her bath), but that it “Was just so dirty!”.  Wonder why???

    Ha ha. Fun post. The girls and I had fun checking out all of the photos of where baby had been and what she had been up to. So glad Lucy is enjoying her!

    Added a few more baby pictures on my facebook since I couldn’t add to this blog or your facebook. Lucia truly does enjoy that baby. Wonder if she needs some new, clean cloths? Dollar Store had a huge selection of doll cloths I saw just before we came over.

    My favorite is the “clean baby happy mother” pic. She looks like such a mom. And of course the one with grandpa talking to the baby. I think he needs to loosen up on his grip though. 🙂


    Love it! Love baby.
