Lucy Joy Is One!
As of 8:21am this morning, our sweet Lucy girl is 1 year old. From a 7lb 6oz little peanut to a spunky, sassy, smiley tiny little lady. God knew that our family needed a little Lucy. She just lights up any room when she enters and it's not unusual for a handful of people to come up and talk to her and comment on how beautiful and happy she is when we are out. She is just a little gem. She is the perfect mix of independent and sassy...yet cuddly and lovable. I never knew how much I wanted a daughter until Lucy became mine. I have thoroughly enjoyed the past year, being her mama and have loved how relaxed, confident, and calm I have been. Being a second time mama has been one of the sweetest experiences and I pray that I get to see Lucy become a big sister in her second year of life. Jon and I are constantly praying over our children that God would use them to do something big in their lives and in addition to that, I pray that Lucy Joy knows how cherished, wanted, known, and loved she is in Christ. I pray that the next year of her life she learns to say her prayers, raises her hands at kids worship at church, and wants to read her bible everyday like her big brother. Today is bittersweet because I look back at newborn pictures of Lucy and miss how tiny she is, but I wouldn't trade her fun and silly personality where we are now for the world. Life is a lot of fun right how with the #HartLittles, Jon and I love being their parents! We had Lucy's birthday party last weekend and are celebrating with family today. Thank you for loving our girl so well, she sure is easy to love! Now for Lucy's birthday pictures that I have been dying to share. We took them a month ago in a field of flowers in our neighborhood and I feel like Lucy has already changed! Thank you for such a JOY filled year sweet girly, we can't wait to watch you grow!
