A New Little Blessing

Recently we were bestowed the honor of being godparents to our dear friends Jenn and Jason Greene’s new daughter, Lucy Mei!

The Greene family welcomed Lucy Mei home in December, and as excited as we were for her to come home, we were even more excited when we were asked to be her godparents!


We traveled down to Maryland for the baptism and to spend some quality time with Jenn, Jason, Simon, Jude and Lucy Mei! 


The baptism was beautiful, and the priest very kindly included all the children and made it a lovely ceremony.


Can you spy the mischievous Liam??


Afterward we headed to the Greene house for party time!  The kids had so much fun playing together, especially with these crazy rocket balloons!  There was so much excitement and laughter!


Devon finally getting to hold Lucy Mei…but she wasn’t as happy as he was!


Nothing a bottle can’t fix!


Later in the day, we walked down the road to the beach.  Too chilly for playing in the water, but the kids had a great time anyway!


On the walk back home, we passed a house that had a zipline out front.  The kids were in awe…and then thrilled when the owners offered to give them each a ride! 

They were so excited!  Even Liam took a ride…I didn’t get a picture of him because I ran alongside him, afraid that he would let go!


Seamus, Grace, Simon and Jude had such a great day together and loved taking pictures together!


Mr. Grumpy wouldn’t get in the group shot, but he did manage to give me a cute pic :-)


After a wonderful day, it was time to head back home.  We said our goodbyes and all snuggled sweet Lucy Mei one last time. 

Seamus was in awe of her…he kept saying, “Look at her tiny hands!  Look at her tiny feet!”


Grace and Lucy Mei already have a special bond!  Grace loved holding her “godsister” every chance she got, and Lucy Mei would look up at her so intently when she talked to her! 


We had a wonderful visit with the Greene family and can’t thank them enough for the honor of being such an important part of Lucy Mei’s life!  Can’t wait for our next visit!
