Happy 1st Birthday, Luciana!

How can it be? Our sweet girl turns ONE today! I remember exactly what I was doing this time last year.... waiting and waiting for the referral of our beautiful baby girl and torturing Keith with incessant thoughts and questions about what it would be like when it happened! It would be just a week later that we would first see her precious face. I've said it before, and I will say it again... we are so BLESSED!

Sam and I had a blast playing with Luciana the other day, as we do most days. Watching my two children make each other smile and laugh is the greatest joy I have ever known. Here are some snapshots of just one of those moments... enjoy!

If the rain holds off, we will be celebrating today with our neighborhood friends in a big ol' cake shaped bouncy house! We will celebrate with our family and a few friends this weekend. I promise to post pics of all the good times soon!

Much love.

Happy 1st Birthday Lucy ... I just found your blog. We brought our daughter home from Guatemala 4 months ago. By the way, Lucy was the other name we had picked out. She is adorable. Courtney
