Lucy Lou... awake.

You know how babies look completely different with their eyes open... well, I thought I'd show you the awake side of Lucy!

She reminds me so much of my other girls as newborns... this is the 4th Jordan girl and I can't believe how similar they all have looked at this age.  I keep having flashbacks to those early days with each of my other girls... especially my first, Alice.  There are just so many similarities.  crazy. weird. so fun.

This is also the point, after having a new baby, where I start to panic.  My mom is gone... my mom-in-law left yesterday... and tomorrow I will be all alone with my brood of 5.  We are doing pretty well, but there are still so many kinks to work out!  V is still struggling- naturally.  He is being extra "difficult" these days.  And when you combine that with the fact that my emotions are still quite raw... things can get intense quite quickly!  I dread being up alone at night, and the fatigue is setting in.  So as I dive into a unavoidably challenging week, I remind myself:

"The LORD is with me; he is my helper."
Psalm 118:7a

"His divine power has given us everything required for life and godliness through the knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness."
2 Peter 1:3

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
Philippians 4:13

"Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. "
Isaiah 40:30-31



  1. Thanks for the scripture! Very pretty baby girl ;)

  2. I missed the introduction of your precious girl! She's breathtaking! So happy for you but I'm praying for you as you adjust to the newness and changes in your family. I have a good friend who has 4 girls and a boy too. :) love you girl!

  3. Sweet baby : )
    I know what you mean... I'm already having mini panic sessions about how in the world I'll stay up at night while nursing a babe again!! I am about to offer allowance to my oldest to sit with me late at night, then let her seep in. Lol she's so sweet she'd do it for free ; )
    Hang in there. The rhythm will kick in.
