Baby love

Looking at newborn pictures of Lucy made me wish that it was the end of September already.

Katy meeting Lucy.

Mom meeting Lucy.

Dad and his first granddaughter.

Me meeting Lucy.

Lucy was cute from the very beginning.  Not all babies are, I am perfectly aware.  I'll think Velocity is beautiful no matter what, but it would certainly be fun if she was beautiful to everyone else too.  Chances are, Velocity won't look anything like Lucy--not with the dark Vaughn genes!  I think a little dark-haired girl will be sooo cute though, even if she doesn't look like she's related to me at all.

(Also, I was tan 3 years ago!)

Sometimes it's weird to think that I'll immediately love a baby that I don't know yet.  I know I will though.  If I'm ever irrationally worried, I think about Lucy and how I instantly fell in love with her. I remember Christy handing her to me and I just started bawling.  I know it will be entirely different with my own baby, and even more intense.  I hope I don't explode from the crazy amounts of love we'll be feeling.

(It would be great if I was this skinny holding my own newborn.  Alas, IMPOSSIBLE.  Those jeans are loooong gone.)

That was cute. You were very tan and thin! I can't wait to hold Velocity!

Greg never holds ME like that....:(

Oh Becca, I'm so excited for you! And it's true, you do fall instantly in love. Motherhood is unlike anything else in the universe! It's incredibly difficult, but even more rewarding!

You look so gorgeous.

Also, I think you should put up a new baby bump picture!
