9 months of Lucy

So, obviously I'm behind on this blog. Like really, really, really behind!

It's a GIRL!!!!! We thought we were going to have a baby boy, but boy were we wrong!

Our beautiful little Lucy Maude was born March 22 at 12:20 p.m.- 7lb 8oz and 20" of perfection! We couldn't be more proud parents!! For those of you wondering, the name is not a family name......we just loved the meaning. Lucy- "Bright," Maude- "mighty in battle." And that is our prayer for our little lady.

Babies are such wonders. Their tiny fingers and toes, those sweet newborn coos, the first smile. I am reminded of Psalms 139: 13&14- For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well." Babies truly are God's handiwork!

Looking back over our literally thousands of photos, I realize how quickly they change as well! As new parents you always hear that time flies, but I don't think you realize just how quickly until you experience it. That cuddly newborn quickly becomes a laughing, babbling, crawling machine! And now she is in love with climbing stairs and pushing her walker all over the house. She is so proud of her new moving abilities too!

Here are some of my favorite photo's of our sweetie~
