|Lucy 4 years old|
Lucy didn't walk until she was about 20 months. She had no need for such trivial things, she was too busy dancing. Her favorite song was, "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" by Cindy Lauper. From the first note of that song she would start raisin' the roof and bouncing on her bum. I am not kidding, she had it in her from the beginning. Her taste in music hasn't changed a whole lot in her four years. She still loves Cindy Lauper but she has added to that Lady Gaga, P!nk, Kelly Clarkson and any music from Glee. Depending on her mood she also enjoys almost any broadway song. She loves all the same music I do. (She does like to occasionally head-band too, after-all she was partially made by her father.)
I watch her and wonder if I would have been like her had I felt free to let my inside out. Lucy holds the place in my heart that was probably supposed to be reserved for loving myself. I see myself in her in so many ways. As I watch her I grow I am keeping my fingers crossed that she won't loose her spunk as I did.
Chillin' in her car seat
Just a regular morning at home.
