Sorry to neglect my blog... Before Lucy was here, I was always too tired to write or honestly, thought there was nothing all that interesting to say. Now that Lucy is here, I've just been busy trying to get a routine and manage our new home sweet home.
Lucy Scarlett was born July 24th at 7:58am. She weighed 7lbs. 10 oz. and was 19 1/4" long. She has had a head full of hair from day one and she is absolutely marvelous.
Lucy is so beautiful, so bright-eyed, and as close to perfect as I could have hoped for. I am so proud of her... so impressed with every little task she masters and every little smile. I just can't believe how much of a personality she already has. Last night, she slept six hours straight and I had to wake her to feed her. That's an amazing event for a four week old. And though it may have been a fluke because it seems to early, she turned over from her stomach to her back just three days ago.
All of this doesn't matter unless I tell you how very, very much I love her. I can just sit and watch her sleep or hold her for hours just to snuggle. Everything about her makes me feel so warm and fuzzy. It's simply incredible how much I can love her already... but she loves me too. I have no doubt about her love. She has responded to my voice from day one. She smiles and buries her little head into my chest. She goes quiet, even if for a moment, when I first pick her up. The love she and I have for each other is immense. I'm such a proud mommy.... I've always known I wanted to do this, that I was made to be a mother. Lucy is my little sign from God that this is exactly what He wants from me.
Thank God that He has given me a happy, healthy, amazing baby and that He continues to pour blessings into my life. My cup runneth over...
