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!
