Best Sister EVER

Jackson is a lucky dude - because Lucca is his sister. Actually I can't get over what an amazing sister she is. She has so much patience with her brother, soo much love for him, and she's such a helpful little mommy. I am so proud of her. She is so understanding, beyond her 2 years, of why she is loaded and unloaded last into the car, why her dinner is ready after his dinner, why I have to nurse Jackson before we have a tea party, why I need to put buddy down for his nap before we can go in the backyard, etc etc etc. Sometimes it feels like I am always telling her "just a minute" so I can take care of Jackson. She never throws a fit over any of this -- never seems to get jealous -- never resents that the world doesn't revolve only around Lucca anymore. Tonight in the bath, Jackson kept taking every toy away from Lucca. Every single one. And she never got upset with him. When he took her ball, I was waiting for her to tell him nooo buddy, but she didn't. She would just grab something else.

She is seriously the best big sister.

I Scream

Lucca got a very special treat for traipsing through IKEA with me today. Her very own ice cream cone. She thought she was pretty hot stuff and pulled out all kinds of moves while she was eating that cone. Sometimes you gotta live a little!

Dress Up

We celebrated Halloween for many days in October. Lucca has discovered the fun of dressing up...and it's been awesome. The rotation line-up consisted of three costume changes: a bee, a kitty and a cupcake. Next year, she is already requesting a dinosaur costume :)

Newest lover of Halloween? Me.
