Hurricane Hits California

Move over, Ike*... Hurricane Lucy has hit SoCal and is leaving no household item unturned. From emptying the dishwasher——which would be fantastic if the dishes were actually clean——to figuring out how to snap off baby-proofed door knobs... this girl knows what she wants and she ain't stopping 'til she gets it.

Today, she suddenly decided after a week filled with baths, hey, they're not so bad! Now we're just going to have to work on getting her to sit in a high chair and, oh I don't know, sleep. Baby steps... but we ARE indeed moving forward.

P.S. If you happen to link to my blog from yours, you may want to change the address to Taiwan-On.com for it to work correctly. Thanks!


*This post is not meant to make light of all those who've suffered from the effects of any real hurricanes. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Soo happy to see smiles!!!!! Lucy looks like she's loving her home and having a great time. Maybe sleep is under rated. :)

Well, we knew she would be a firecracker when we found out she was climbing out of her crib at what, 4 months old??!!

Love the picture of mommy & daughter. :)

Looking at their monkey antics, I'd swear Lucy and Jaden are related! They must have driven the SLC nannies crazy. What an absolute cutie Lucy is - can't wait to meet her!

too cute! sorry bronchitis & asthma hit your home : ( Yes, climbing the dishwasher is a common one here. Thankfully, our girls are light, huh? I know your home is busy and costing some $$ these days (washing machine), but I know you are enjoying it all because your family is all home and whole! We are recovering from the 'real' Hurricane Ike. I hope to get to update the blog today. We were w/o power,water,phone,internet for over 5 days! Praise God our home and family were spared, but it is a mess here in Houston. It's great to be back to check on you, Lucy, and your family! : )
