Grandma Lulu Holding Daisy for the First Time

My mom came out to NC on April 27th and stayed for a week to see Daisy for the first time (in person) and to help me out and what a great help she was!! My mom and I also discussed that this visit was the first time we got to have time together with just the two of us in many, many years. It was such a treat to share some quality time and to be in each others company for a week. I learned so much about being a servant and being the hands and feet of Christ by watching my mom serve me and my family lovingly and tirelessly this past week. I think I can speak on behalf of most daughters (not all of course) that there is nothing like a mother's love and being that mother's day is less than a week away I can't think of a better time to say how much I love and appreciate my mom, Joey's mom, our Grandmothers and all the other moms I know!! This is my first year as a mom and wow, what a gift it is to be able to love on a child and to watch them grow! Thank you Jesus for richly blessing my life with so many amazing women and for blessing my life with Daisy this year!

I love the top picture of my mom holding Daisy and I'm sure my mom would rather that I didn't post this video but, personally I think it's priceless and adorable:-). I have so many more pictures and stories to post so hopefully I will get caught up this week.

Oh, and before I forget; Daisy has been intentionally smiling a lot more this past week. She doesn't smile all the time but, when she does it melts mine and Joey's hearts. She smiles the most for Joey but, I got a huge smile out of her today and it felt like I had been handed a million bucks. So yah:) Just wanted to document that at four to five weeks of age Daisy has been giving us her first purposeful smiles:). Can't wait to post pictures and videos of that!


  1. that is so sweet!!! Moms are the best! We still want to come visit you and little Daisy Love sometime!

  2. seriously that has got to be the best video ever! Mike really enjoyed it and said that it was really touching. Not kidding! So glad she is smiling and you better get some photos or videos of it! Send it with your new phone or something!
