Diaper Rash Woes

Hello there. Hope you had a wonderful weekend. We enjoyed some beautifully warm temperatures (finally in the 70's) until yesterday, when it SNOWED. Fortunately, the sun is out again today, and hopefully this snow will be gone in no time. 

Yesterday morning, Lucy woke up with a horrible diaper rash. She has never had very bad rashes, and I feel like this one has appeared out of thin air. I read somewhere that a lot of acidity in the diet can cause ugly diaper rashes, and Lucy eats a lot of citrus. She is currently hanging out bare-bottomed, following a breakfast of non-acidic foods (bananas and cheerios).

I am hopeful that this rash will disappear soon. In the mean time, we have a naked baby on the loose!

First Bike Ride

Yesterday, Lucy went on her first bike ride. We rode to the park near our house for a friend's birthday party. I promise she was more excited about it than she looks in these pictures. 

The weather in Fort Collins has been so lovely. Tomorrow, though, we are supposed to get more snow. Springtime in Colorado is such a tease.

Lucy Walks... Sort of

Lucy has been taking some steps towards walking. Literally. 

Thank you, Grandiva and Papa Bear for her walker :)

Lucy's Birthday Wishlist

I can't believe I am actually writing this post. My baby is about to turn 1! For her first birthday, I asked Lucy to come up with a wishlist, and she happily obliged. Here are her picks:

2. Books
3. Top

Day at the Farm

Over the weekend, we visited a little local farm. Lucy was not sure what to think of all the animals...

Animal babies were everywhere. I guess spring is really on the way :)

Visit with Grandiva and Papa Bear

This past week, we had a wonderful visit with M's parents. They came all the way from Georgia to celebrate M and Lucy's birthdays...

Lucy tasted her first cupcake. She loved it! I thought she shouldn't have all of that icing, so I helped her eat it :) 

We had a wonderful time with Grandiva and Papa Bear, and we were very sad to see them leave today. I am already looking forward to the next time we're all together!

M's Birthday

On Sunday, M turned 26! Here is what we did to celebrate...

Breakfast at the Waffle Lab food truck! Even though the weather was cold, it was worth it.

S'mores Waffle. Nom.

The Birthday Boy

And - because we needed more sugar and carbs after the waffles - birthday cake!

It was a very low-key birthday celebration this year since M had a paper due, as well as a sermon to write. Thankfully, M's parents are in town now, so we are enjoying some time with them. We are planning a little joint birthday celebration for M and Lucy while they are here. (Lucy will celebrate her actual birthday on April 28!!!) I think M is glad to draw the birthday festivities out as long as possible :)
