It’s hard to believe that my baby girl, Lucy, is 5 years old today.
When we found out Lucy was on her way, my heart soared! I had prayed and prayed for another baby girl, and God had answered.
I had an incredibly difficult pregnancy with Lucy. She had a two-vessel cord, and there were so many complications because of it. She beat all the odds, though, and was born weighing a healthy 8 pounds 3 ounces. You’d never know to look at her how hard it was to get her here safely.
This has been a fun year for Lucy. We started a preschool curriculum here at home, and she’s doing great. She loves counting and drawing, and she’s trying so hard to write her name. It won’t be long before she’s got it down. This afternoon, she’ll open her presents which will consist of her first two-wheel bike.
I remember when Lucy was 2, she still had hardly any hair on her head at all. Just a few little spit curls. Amazing how long and gorgeous those few curls have become!
Lulu, I want you to know how proud I am of you. You are such a sweet and beautiful little girl, and I am so thankful that God picked me to be your mommy. I love you, honey. Keep being exactly who you are.
