Lucy Elizabeth Mercy Paulsen: 6lbs and 15oz of Joy & Beauty

Our daughter was born Saturday morning at 5am. Things went very smoothly and quickly. Girl and mother are both doing well. Lucy is named for 4 great mothers. The name Lucy comes from Lucy Mac Smith, the mother of prophet Joseph Smith who restored the church we belong to. The name Elizabeth comes from her own mother, my wife, Ami Elizabeth Paulsen. Incidentally Ami’s middle name comes from the mother of John the Baptist, another great prophet. The name Mercy comes from Mercy Warren a great mother of our nation. Her last name, Paulsen, is of course a great part of her noble heritage. She comes into a great family of supportive parents, grandparents, and more! Here are some pictures for you to enjoy:
