Two small (but HUGE!) victories in my world today.

1) Got Lucca down for both her nap AND bedtime sans the beloved bottle. With only a few quick shrieks both times. You probably heard them. Why I got Lucca attached to a bottle after 12 months of exclusive breastfeeding is beyond me. Lessons learned for Baby #2..... (NO, I am not pregnant!!)

2) LUCCA POOPED ON THE POTTY. Before you go all crazy thinking I've potty trained a 16 month old, this was not on purpose, really. We have not begun potty training yet, but we do have a potty and Lucca was running around without a diaper on after I changed a small turd. Letting the girl air out a bit, until she decided to pee on the carpet. Sooo, I immediately placed her on the potty to tell her that's where she needs to pee when all of the sudden I realized she was pooping. ON THE POTTY. Yessssss!!!!!!!!!! And I'll spare you the picture I took of the big poop that I had to send to Daddy at work!

Big day, I know.

Eating with Lucca

Sometimes we use a spoon...
And sometimes a fist...
Sometimes two fists works best...
However she eats, it's always messy and (almost) always a good time...

Happy 60th!

Last week, our family came from far and wide to Lake Tahoe for my father-in-law's BIG 60th birthday bash! The week was spent hiking, fishing, biking, swimming, boating, and eating...all things the birthday boy loves doing. It was so nice to spend time with family in such a gorgeous setting.

Lucca's 1st carriage ride/encounter with a real horse. The girl would not stop "neigh-ing"...Over and over again...
Mama's small sunglasses

She did NOT like seeing her Daddy going up in the sky...cried the whole time until they got back in the boat. It was a long 10 minutes for Mama!!!

Always sad to leave Tahoe, but the memories made will last a lifetime!

Lake Tahoe

We are in Tahoe, so I'm in heaven! Every time we come up to Tahoe I'm reminded why we got married here. Is there a more beautiful place on earth? So far, it seems like my girl loves this place as much as her mama. Good thing!

I won.

Well the battle has been won, and we are past the tears when putting Lucca's helmet on. Now she realizes if she puts the monkey hat on her head, she gets to go for a bike ride and look for bunnies. She loves it. Amazing. If you could have heard the screams the first time we tried getting this helmet on her head, you would be amazed too. Promise.

Our pretty little city

We are lucky to live in such a gorgeous place. Here are some iPhone pics of what our daily walk to downtown Sausalito looks like...

1st Bike Ride!

It was all fun and games until we put the helmet on her. Then it turned ugly. So, Lucca won and we broke the law, letting our most precious cargo ride without a helmet. Good thing I am such an amazing bike rider ;)

The progression...

"She may have won the battle, but she won't win the war." Just don't tell her that...
