One year ago today.

That was when we found out that after 6 boys we finally had another baby daughter girl.  We dubbed her Helen Lucille Aileen, nicknamed her Lucy, or Blue Bean, Or Lu, or Bee-girl, or girly, or pink baby…

But mostly we just call her Lucy.


Over the past year she’s gone through quite a lot of growth.  She’s learned to laugh, roll over, sit up, climb, crawl, pull everything off the table, type, win, stay awake for longer periods of time than her mommy would like, and finally walk.  She’s gone from brand new baby to not-so-brand-new baby to almost not a baby at all.

With just the tiniest smile, she’s melted the hearts of every single one of her brothers, her older sister, her daddy, and her mama over and over and over again.

We’ve all been ruined by her sweet cuteness.

My friend, Marty took Lucy’s first birthday pictures for me last week and they turned out so cute.


You should go take a peek at all of the pictures she took of Lucy that day.  Because the pictures of Lucy eating cake are only too perfect and you simply MUST see them.


I get that you can’t read but I have to write this first birthday thing anyway because someday you will be able to read and I want you to know… 
Your mama just loves you to death, girl. 

I love how perfect an addition you have been in our family, hand picked at added at the perfect time, fitting in with us like a glove. 
I love all the little girly noises you make and how dainty you are compared to your older brothers.  I love how sit in such odd positions. And I love how you look up at me with your big blue doe-shaped eyes.

I love your pudgy little hands and how your red hair peeks out over the top of your ears. I love the little space between your two front teeth and the little freckle on your left arm.

Lucy, I pray for such great things for your future. For there to be so much laughter in your life, so much to celebrate, and pure, genuine joy.

Happy first birthday little baby daughter girl. You’re so special.

Love, Your mama.



Great googly moogly, people, isn’t she is just about the cutest thing ever?
