falling for Lucy

Thank you so much for your prayers while we were gone.  Our case passed court!  Lucy is officially my daughter.  Lucy Tesfanish Northcutt.  In celebration, now that I can finally post pictures of this precious child.... I will!  Enjoy (I sure did!).

She smiles!  I didn't have any pictures of a smiling Lucy.  It actually worried me... was she happy?  I quickly found out that she does indeed smile--a lot!  She likes to stretch out after she wakes up and smile and coo.  (What a charmer!)  I found out from other mamas at the guest house that they had all had similar concerns.  We were so thankful to see these precious smiles!

 She snuggles!  Another blessing, my baby likes to snuggle!  She's so little and sweet, and she just snuggles in to you.  She holds onto my hand, my arm, my neck with her little hand.  It was so sweet.

 Nana got in some good snuggle time, too! 

Lucy LOVED being outside.  Luckily, it was sunny and 75 all week :).  She stared up at the trees moving in the wind, taking it all in.  I'm thankful that I have a nice grassy yard and plenty of trees around.  I think she'll enjoy them (and I'll enjoy her enjoying them!).

We played dress up and experimented with little bows--so fun!  I'm sure there will be a lot more of this girly fun in our future!

I am so humbled that God would entrust this little treasure to me. 
 I am so blessed to have her in my life. 
 I love her, already, SO much!
