I never in a million years thought I would have two girls.

I never in a trillion years thought one of them would have Down syndrome.

But here we are.

And my heart overflows.

Luciya will be three years old in a few days. She is vivacious, exuberant, feisty, and daring. She is beautiful and sensitive and totally hilarious. And she adores her baby sister.

She calls her "Little Mirabel" and loves on her every chance she gets. Luciya is helpful and kind and gentle and observant. She fetches me diapers and sings "Twinkle, Twinkle" when Mirabel fusses. She has absolutely blossomed in the past three months.

These two squishy, lovely, stinky little butternuts are my truest delight. I am humbled by their beautiful light and so very proud to be their mama.


  1. What beautiful girls you have! My sister is my best friend and I am blessed with three daughters, I have always thought the greatest gift I have given my girls is each other :)

  2. beautiful... both your words and the pictures :)

  3. They are so blessed to have each other, such love and adoration!
