Our sweet Lucia just turned two months on September 26! This big mama is the joy of our lives! Each day she changes right before our eyes and we are loving every second of it. Here is the skinny on this big beautiful baby!
On Monday we went to her two month check up and were laughing our butts off when they told us how this big lady measures up to other kids. We prayed for a big baby...more to love!...and we got one for sure! Lucia is 24 3/4 inches which puts her above the 98th percentile for height; She is 13 lbs 15 oz putting her in the 96th percentile for weight; and her head circumference is 40 cm putting her in the 95th percentile for that!
She is a big, beautiful girl and we just love her to pieces!
One of my friends on Facebook re-posted a blog post from Christian author and speaker Christine Caine.
Normally, when it is 3 a.m. and I just fed the baby I am delirious, but I saw this post and thought I would give it a read...because I was still semi-with it.
This post is about her short struggle with cancer and the position of power that she took over this disease. I really encourage you to read it.
There is so much truth in this post. For me it was an excellent reminder that we need to not only remember our authority in Christ but also remember this world is a battlefield. There is a real enemy and we can not let our guard down for one moment. We have to stay prayed up, read up and prepared...because this world is not "playground but a battlefield." It also reminds me that we have a choice to make in every battle. Either we chose to have faith and no matter what believe that God is good and he will have the final victory or we give up and give in.

Last weekend was a big one for such a little girl. As Josh and I were taking our first long trip with Lucia down the thruway to Jersey, his father and step-mom were flying out from Kansas to Jersey for a extended weekend at the Martone's.
The weekend was the first for a few things. It was the first time Lucia got to meet her other grandparents, the first time she watched a Buckeyes game, the first time she met her Aunt Susan and cousin Angela and the first time she took a crap and had it leak all over my mother =)... Ah what fun.
But the big event of the weekend was more special than all of these wonderful things. On Sunday, we dedicated Lucia to the Lord. Similar to a christening or baptism, a baby dedication is a ceremony where believing parents make a commitment before the Lord to submit the child to God's will for their life and promise to raise the child in God's way.
Lucia is such a joy in our lives and a direct answer of prayer from God...So for Josh and I it was so important to stand before family and close friends and essentially give her back into His very capable hands. My Uncle David did the ceremony and what a blessing to be able to stand there and tell God...thank you for this child...we promise to raise her in your Word and your truth!
After the ceremony immediate family and a few close friends joined us for a meal in celebration. Lucia...after screaming like a crazy baby at the beginning of the meal passed out cold and remained sleeping for the entire time...Don't worry little girl I video taped it so you can check that out when you are older ;)
Here are some pictures from the weekend!
