A Note From Mommy

Today Lucy turned 2 1/2. When Kevin brought this to my attention it got me thinking and the rest of the night Lucy has been on my mind. 2 1/2 wow!
Many times I find myself wishing I was a talented writer. Tonight happens to be one of them. I wish I could find a way to put into words how remarkable she is. For those of you who only know her through this blog you are really missing out.
She loves to laugh. She loves to make others laugh-especially Simon. She has the cutest laugh.
She loves to sing. We are getting kinda sick of the Veggie Tales CD. But there's nothing like it when she sings and does the motions to He's Got the Whole World In His Hands.
She's rotten, but the kind of rotten that is just perfect and makes you smile.
A couple of weeks ago we went to Children's for her 2 year check up. The doctors continue to be impressed at her personality and abilities. All of her therapist are getting her ready for her transition into preschool. There will be a series of evaluations. Although I'm sure she will do fine. There's part of me that could care less how she does. She's remarkable whether she can stack 5 blocks or 8. I don't care if she can't strings beads or copy specific lines. What they say about what she can or can't do means nothing. She is amazing if she can do it all, and she is just as amazing if she can't do any of it. Though her life we have praised God for how she continues to blow the socks of doctors. I'm continually thankful for her health and abilities but God is still good on the day that comes when she doesn't meet "their" standards. She will always be remarkable. When she was first born my prayers seemed to have a why, why, why, help, help, help feel to them. Tonight as I held her in my arms and she rested her head on my shoulder the only words that came to mind were: Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I am so stinkin' lucky to have her in my life.
