Lucy


Lucy Graham joined our family on June 23, and we are so happy to have her in our arms! She was (and still is) very small, she only weighed 6lb 4oz (our smallest by far!) was 18 in. long with a 13 1/4 cm head circumference. The delivery went great! (I was induced, for scheduling sake- Wil was still on track/school) On her way out though she scratched her face pretty good with three of her fingernails. It was sad and it got a lot of attention by her siblings. "Poor Lucy!" They all adore her and want to help and hold her, often -they are a big help! It was fun for me when they came to the hospital after she was born to see her for the first time. They were all so interested in all of her! They also brought her and me gifts, every time they came to the hospital. They were homemade gifts, or something found in the house-I just love it! My mom came to help us and stayed for about ten days! We are so grateful she did! She was a big help and did a lot of fun park outings with the kids, and they were very sad to see her go! We love you Nana, and thank you SOOOO much! Lucy is so very sweet, and easy going, and handles the craziness of this house quite well! WE LOVE LUCY! (These pictures range from four days before she was born (me on Father's day) to Lucy being about three weeks old.)

Oh yay! Heather and I were grilling Spence at the reunion for details. What a sweet darling girl! You are one blessed mama, Juice. I'm so glad your mom was able to come help. I never appreciate my mom quite as much as I do when I've just had a baby. Congratulations!!!

Yeah! I am so behind, I knew you were having your baby sometime in June or July (what a great friend hu?) Lucy is a doll and I think she fits the mold very nicely! :) Can't wait to meet her! Love you guys!

She's cute. I'm glad the older kiddos love her so much, that's so sweet for a mama to see, isn't it?

When I saw your comment on my blog I realized maybe you had posted something about Lucy on here, and I was right!! Too bad I'm only two weeks late in seeing it! Juice, she is SO cute and tiny! Those eyes are beautiful! I'm so glad it went well. Beck and I were talking about you today and how amazing you are with your five kids. Love you and miss you!!
