He designed her strong...

"He designed her strong with a touch of wild. He made her fiery yet obedient. Her heart breaks for what breaks his. And she gives gifts to those she loves–gifts of creativity covered with paint and glitter.

I whisper in her ear all the ways he made her precious.
For her weaknesses I pray. I train, that she might one day lift the Sword of Truth and battle for what is rightfully hers in Christ. Battle for joy and abundance and victory in a world that rejects him cold and with a heart that aims to deceive.

He made her purposefully, with plans for her tomorrow. May I be ever-diligent to see her with his eyes. And may I rest in His grace in those moments when I completely fail."

5 months

Oh my goodness! Luci you are 5 months old already.  Time has certainly flown by.  Luci you have got to be the happiest, silliest, and most precious baby.  I also love this age!  You are probably a little bit spoiled, but we wouldn't have it any other way.  Here's what you are up to these days!!!

  • At your last dr. visit you weighed 15lbs 3oz. and you were 25 inches long.
  • You wear a size 2 diaper
  • And you are pretty much wearing size 6 months clothes
  • You have the biggest brown eyes I've ever seen
  • You still have dark hair, but out in the sun it has a red tint to it
  • You are still waking up at least once a night to eat.  You are my little night owl.
  • You are rolling everywhere.  We always lay you on a blanket in the floor, but you are off of it in no time!
  • You also push up very well.  You will be crawling in no time, and then I think we will be in trouble.
  • Your Grandad has taught you to blow bubbles and spit, and everytime you see him that's what you start doing.  It's too cute! 
  • You do not like for strangers to hold you at all, and if you wake up in a strange place you are out of control crying.  Needless to say, your Daddy and I don't get to leave you often.
  • You love to be outside.  Since you are staying with your Memaw until school is out, she takes you on walks outside everyday if the weather is nice. 
  • You are reaching and grabbing everything....especially my water bottles.  You will grab anyone's drink with your mouth wide open.  We can thank your Grandad for that.
  • You have the cutest smile.  When you smile you always stick out your tongue.  It's the sweetest.
  • You are also such a Mommy's girl.  I can't even leave the room without you crying. 
  • You love to talk, and I think you love to hear yourself scream.
  • You are teething, and you chew on everything.  Whatever you can get your hands on goes into your mouth.
  • You still sleep with your lovey, and it's a must have.  Thankfully your Memaw has made you several!
  • You love your brother and sisters, and your face just lights up when you see them.
  • Luci I'm also in love with your laughter.  You have the biggest belly laugh, and it just makes my heart smile everytime I hear it. :)
