who is already a month old! (I think I've mentioned before that I'm not very timely with my posting.)
This girl has turned our world upside down.
The first few weeks of being her mama were the toughest weeks of my life. From the long, hard labor that went nowhere to the totally un-wanted c-section that got this stubborn girl out at 42 weeks, to the feeding issues and recovery time in a crowded hospital, this experience has challenged me at every turn.
I even wondered at times if I would be able to say it was worth it in the end. Just look at that face, though.
I love you, Lucy, more than I'll ever be able to explain to you.
My dear friend Andrea, who knit me a blanket for a wedding gift, spent who knows how many hours knitting Lucy this beautiful blanket that I want to wear as a sweater! It's one of the most precious gifts I was given. She also had Lucy's full name put onto a set of wooden blocks…shown in the second photo here. The felt flower was made by my friend Julie, who started making and selling all sorts of cute hair accessories recently, and I won this one in a contest she ran! Love the colors in both, and how they work so well together.
