On May 21st, 2011, Harry and I welcomed the most beautiful baby girl into our lives. Her name is Lucy.
I was told I would be amazed by how much I could love her, and I knew it would be true. Even so, I could have never imagined how wonderful it would be to meet her.
The moment the nurse placed Lucy in my arms was incredible, and even more powerful than I ever expected. Harry and I stared at her in awe. We began talking to her, and she quietly studied and stared at us. It was love at first sight.
On Sunday, June 12, Lucy was baptized. My Mom and Dad were here to share in the joy of the occasion. Before Lucy’s baptism, Harry and I chose a life verse for her. The verse comes from Colossians 1:9-10, it’s a powerful parenting passage that we will pray over her as she grows. This passage says,
“For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way.”
Listening to Harry talk to Lucy makes my heart sing. He is so excited to play with her when he gets home from work. He is an amazing father. God has richly blessed us with this sweet little bundle of cuteness.
