A look at Lucy

...
It has been an exciting couple of Lucy days recently.

I can't remember if I had mentioned it or not but I was recently able to participate in a special casting call maternity session with Libby Ann Photography here in Austin. My ever-in-the-know friend, Ticia, clued me in to this and I was SOOOOOOO excited that I was chosen to participate. It is funny, we have about a million pictures of the kids, some with us with the kids but rarely any pictures of just Kelly and me together. This was such a special time for us to escape for a "mini photo date" on Sunday. We are still waiting to see all the pictures. But here is our sneak peek! I will say that I LOVED working with this photographer and she finds such cool little photo ops in places I would never even think of! If you live in the area than you should check out her website for sure!!!

Today was another opportunity for some Lucy pictures also! My doctor likes to do one final sonogram just to see how our little nugget is growing. Let me tell you that I am now going to stop saying "little". Lucy, is anything but little. In fact, according to ultrasound measurements she already weighs about 5lbs 11oz. EEEK! I still have a good 4.5 weeks to go... I am giving in to all things green and leafy and saying so long to my beloved carbs for a while. We will see if this helps!

It was really fun to see little bits of our other two in the sono session. Lucy has GIANT face cheeks just like Molly and Gabriel---she definitely has the biggest of the bunch though. She has what looks like Gabriel's hand and Molly's feet so we will see what that combo becomes. I am sort of afraid to find out. She, like her siblings, definitely has Daddy's forehead. Will she have hair/no hair? Curly or straight? Be calm natured or refluxy like Molly was? Oh, I can't wait to finally hold her and find out! It is all starting to feel so real now... I can't believe that we are in March.

I would love to say that we have awesome pictures from the sono today but alas, we do not. She seems squished and the picture quality on the paper looks squished with little blobs of elbows and tummy. But she was on target and our doctor said everything looked great--- and that is better news than any picture print out!

I have my first "check" at my next appointment so stay tuned on Lucy progress!
