Daddy's girl

Lucy's first bath

The process itself (sponge bath on the kitchen counter) was a thrashing, screaming nightmare. Apparently we hate baths and having our diaper changed with a major passion. But... she was relaxed and sleepy afterwards. So sweet.

We have been blessed with a beautiful new family member -- Lucille Catherine Powers! Lucy was born at 4:32 pm on Sunday, June 22, 2008 at Woman's Hospital in Baton Rouge after many, many long hours of labor! She weighed 8 lbs, 4 oz and was 20.5 inches long. We've waited so very long for her to get here and it is absolutely amazing to be able to see her in person! As you can see, daddy is already completely smitten with Lucy. The miracle of life is so amazing... words cannot describe the emotion and love flowing through me for this little one. Welcome to the family baby girl!

Getting ready for baby

We have been working on Lucy's room for what seems like forever now, and it's finally starting to come together. Andrew found our changing table on and painted/refinished it with great results. My "handy Andy" did such a great job putting together all the nursery furniture, scraping the popcorn ceiling, installing the hardwood floors...

Lucy is already a lucky girl to have a daddy who cares about her so much!
