Happy Birthday Lucy!!
We are so lucky that YOU are a part of our family. Your first year has not been easy; a lot of your "firsts" were overshadowed by Mollie's illness; you spent a lot of time in the stroller at the hospital or clinic. But, you brightened every day with your sweet disposition and cute smile! I can't bring Mollie anywhere without hearing, "Where's Lucy?"
Now, you're almost a toddler. You always find ways to get through our security (baby gates). You babble, you're curious, you love to eat. You follow me around the house like a little lamb and pull on my legs when you need a hug. I love that you still look like a baby, but you're growing.
I remember your birth like it was yesterday; how they wouldn't let me hold you right away because you had the cord around your neck and needed oxygen. But after those tenuous first few moments, you went about the business of being a vigorous little sister.
We love you so much kiddo! Happy Birthday!
