As part of my new two month experiment (Short and Sweet and Scattershot), I’m shamelessly indulging this morning in a post of nothing but sweet newborn photos of little miss Lucie.
…cute enough to make the cover of the photographer’s fb page for 15 minutes of fame (haha!):
Many thanks to Erin Tole for sharing her brilliant talent (and having enough of a sense of humor to put up with Ted and me!). She nabbed our maternity pictures at Grossen Peaches in Helvetia (while I was lumbering around with a stomach bigger than last year’s backpack) then came on the day of Lucie’s birth to record those first sweet moments at the waterbirth center.
One week later, we packed up our new-parent selves and tiny Lucie and spent the morning at Erin’s studio having way too much fun with the little sleeping bundle of arms and legs and cheeks.
It’s pretty fun to finally be threeOregonians. She rounds out the bunch pretty well, no?
Something tells me we’ll look back on these first photos in the same spirit as those snaps from the first morning of our trip around the world. It’ll feel like just yesterday and like ages ago. So ripe and fresh. So full of promise, anticipation, and wonder…
Just where will we go from here?
xx Bethany, Ted & Lucie
(Psst! Wait ’til you see pictures with her bright blue eyes open!)
