The Dress

Lucy's Auntie Carolyn and cousin Lexi sent her the dress that Lexi wore in our wedding in 2003. Lucy loves it and has worn it everyday since she got it...over her clothes! She says the ruffled sleeves are wings! She even wore it to school on Thursday... notice the snow in the pictures! This was not a normal day in Austin, Texas!

Sweet Lily Anne!!

The Gennrich Family has a new member!! Mike's brother Dave and our sister in law Lindsey welcomed little baby Lily Anne on February 7th... We can't wait to meet her!

Lucy is in a Book!!

She has 3 or 4 pictures in the book...and Mike and I are in there too. Our RIE class facilitator Ruth Anne Hammond wrote this great book and a lot of the pictures in the book are other children in our parent/infant class that we went to weekly from when Lucy was 3months old until we moved, when she was around 21months.
"Respecting Babies is a guidebook that will help parents and caregivers learn to provide support to babies and toddlers in a way that allows them to become confident explorers. Focusing on the importance of building secure relationships, this guide is an easy-to-read and engaging summary of the history and methods of care originally conceived by Magda Gerber, founder of the Resources for Infant Educarers (RIE) program. This book highlights key elements of the RIE program and examines how to effectively put them to use. Readers will learn about the importance of following routines, using language, and creating safe environments in order to promote a child’s ability to experiment, explore, and learn."

Ice cream sculpture!

Lucy made the block "sculpture" (below) yesterday...and it just looked so fun and yummy that I had to take a picture! But it reminded me of when we were at the Waldorf school's Winter Fair and Lucy stopped to look at this sculpture for a while and pretended to eat it...she said it was ice cream with chocolate on top... She has definitely inherited my sweet tooth!
