Lucy-Anne Elizabeth

I'm ecstatic to be able to write a post about my little girl, Lucy-Anne Elizabeth, whom we will call "Lucy" in almost all circumstances, unless she's getting a diploma or getting into trouble. :)

Lucy's name comes from a few sources and it was difficult making the final decision because we had several iterations of the name that we liked. But here's the ultimate breakdown:

Lucy...comes from her paternal great-grandmother, Lucille
Anne...comes from her paternal grandmother, Anna
Elizabeth...comes from Mommy's hero from history, Queen Elizabeth I
And the hyphen? That was definitely inspired by my bestie Kate, whose name is Anne-Kathryn

Isn't she sweet and darling in her picture? I already see signs of the button nose Daddy had as a baby -- the same nose her big brother sported at this stage and was born with! We don't have any other really share-able pictures from the 18.5-week ultrasound because Miss Lucy was in the vertex position and proved to be a challenge to see (and photograph). So, Lucy and I are going back to the doctor's in mid-April to follow-up and finish the routine anatomy scan. Hopefully I will have better, clearer images to share then!

Can I tell you something and not hurt your feelings? I am SOOOOO happy that you decided to go with Lucy-Anne!!! That was my favorite of all the possible spellings. By the by, I was at Mom and Dad's the other night, and Aunt Janice was there, and we told her that you were having a girl and what her name was. The first thing out of her mouth was, "Oh my gosh, is she spelling Anne with an 'e'? She has to spell Anne with an 'e'!" I calmly reassured her that you were. I think that's one of the first things I asked you, too. Isn't it funny how one little letter can hold such significance?

It was so funny about the spelling. Marty was just dead-set on "Lucianne" for awhile, until it really got into his head that some people would think she's Italian and call her "Looch-ee-anne" and he just couldn't stand that. So Lucy-Anne won out! I'm so glad you like it!!!
