Lucinda found a dead squirrel in the back yard today. She was quite fascinated by it, since she likes all animals. We explained to her that the squirrel had died, and then we held a funeral for it. We dug a hole and put the squirrel in it. Lucinda picked some flowers to put in the hole alongside the squirrel, and then we covered it up. She then picked out some rocks to make a headstone for it.

We took Lucinda to her first movie today. It was the IMAX Dolphins movie ( showing at the California ScienceCenter ( in Exposition Park. She liked the dolphins, and she was only frightened a few times when there were particularly loud sounds. Overall, she said that she liked it.

Lucinda had her first modeling gig today. Aunt Maggi is currently working in marketing at Kaiser Permanente, and has Lucinda’s picture on her desk. Apparently they liked her ethnically ambiguous look. Outtakes from the photo shoot are in Lucinda’s photo album.

Lucinda got a small stuffed dog toy for her second birthday, and she has decided that its name is “Max”. This is the first time she has named one of her stuffed animals. She likes to drag Max around on a leash while saying, “walk Max.”

Lucinda is really starting to use a lot of words now. They are not all completely understandable yet, but she’s talking a lot. We can usually figure out what she’s trying to say. In cases where we can’t, we can ask her, and she is able to understand us. This is fun.

Took Lucinda down to the park to see the Rose Parade today. We watched about a quarter of the parade before she got restless. Still, she liked the marching bands and the horses. On the way home, we stopped to meet some of the horses before they were loaded on their trailers. This was the first time Lucinda had seen horses close up, and she was a bit frightened, as they were much larger than on TV.

Today was Lucinda’s first haircut. She got a certificate, and we got a little bag full of hair to save for posterity.

Lucinda is starting to speak. She has a few words that she uses. She says “googie” when she wants a biscuit to give to the dogs. She can also answer yes-or-no questions. She says “aye” or “no”. She says “no” a lot now. Stan is working on getting a program to record what she says, so that she can have a multimedia web site.
