Lucy Marie

Two weeks ago we got to welcome our Lucy girl into the world. Labor was shooing it was close Friday night and contented into Saturday morning. After an adjustment, lunch and a beach walk we decided to go to the hospital at 3pm. We checked and and things didn't go quite the way we had planned but knew one way or another we would be holding our girl soon and that's all that mattered. Labor progressed smooth and I was fully effaced and dilated to a 5 at 11pm... an intense hour later Lucy was born. I'm so blessed to have Mark as my support, he was a huge help and knows me so well and what I need. I loved bringing our Lucy into the world and hope I remember what this process was like for a long time. 

We had just decided it was time to go to the hospital. hence my half smile ;) 

So blessed with the support we had in this afternoon and in life

Wishing I could freeze her like this, just for a couple weeks or so.
Our sweet tiny Lucy girl, Mommy and Daddy love you more than you know.

It has been a wonderful 2 weeks, lots of firsts and possibly lasts. I came across this article this week and needed the reminder to cherish every day. It Is something we all want to do but in the day to day tasks, goals, ideas, and caring for another little one I can loose sight of this so quickly.

The blink of an eye....

I feel like I blinked and now I have a 3 1/2 month baby girl with 2 teeth. Life has been going with nursing, weekend family time, craft nights with some of my favorite ladies, running, gardening, laundry, and never ending housework :) it's all going so fast but there are moments I hope to remember forever...

My 1st grade teacher, Mrs. Kawai, such a sweet, servant of God. I love it that she is in our lives.

I love this place called the Carlsbad Inn. I have the best memories of summers with my family, birthday parties, getting engaged and look forward to many more summers with my family

I admire their love <3

We got to stay a week with my parents down by the beach, it was wonderful!

In the blink of an eye I know my baby will be swimming
