Today Lucia turned 3! Time really does fly. It was a fun day, complete with afternoon birthday party with the Reagens and the Liesses.
Lucia at 3 continues to be a joy and is very different than our other kids were – though she looks just like Mari did. She is very social and very independent. She has spent a lot of time with our older kids and with the kids in Susan’s program so she thinks she is a lot older than she is. She speaks very well and seems to have a very strong understanding of the world. She is very observant and is not one to shy away from what she wants.
She typically wakes around 7 or 7:30. She shares a bed with Mari so she will sometimes snuggle with Mari before coming downstairs. When she does come down the first thing she wants to do it talk with Rose. She will hug, kiss, and dance with Rose until Rose gets fussy. She loves to spend time outside and to play with her dolls. Lately it seems like she has been taking a doll everywhere. Her favorite food is pizza for sure, but she also likes beans & rice and yogurt. She sometimes takes a nap in the car and goes to bed at the same time as Mari and Elliot at night, 9.
