Lucy Leigh Bennet

Happy Birthday!! Born May 23rd, 2014...she came out in a hurry. We couldn't be more thrilled with this perfect little girl.

Welcome Home Little Lady!

*Obviously we have been busy adjusting to life with two children and enjoying every little moment we can since this hospital post is a month after she was born. We've had visitors, doctor appointments and fun celebrations during this time and I will be so happy when we can catch everyone up to date with little Lucy girl and Jude dude.

Last Belly Shots!

My last doctor's appointment was today and our Little Lucy will be here within the next 6 days. I'm packing bags, making lists and counting the occasional contraction. It's getting so exciting. So I thought I better finish up the last few weeks of belly shots while the last load of laundry is drying. It's been a great pregnancy. Now let's hope for a great delivery. xoxo

Yes, I'll go for the gold. 36 weeks and showing some skin. 

Hoo!!          Hooo!!!          Hoooooooooooooo!!!!         This belly button is crying Uncle!

37 &1/2 weeks.                            38 weeks. 
Same black shirt!

38 weeks celebrating Stephanie and Jagger. Lucy looks like she's had enough...Come on out girl.

Maternity Pictures - Goodbye Month 9

These maternity pictures far exceeded our expectations. Giovani Pop (Mypopography) did an amazing job and we are so happy to have captured these last moments as a family of three. I cannot even believe we'll be a family of four any day now. We want to send a huge THANK YOU to Gio!!! These are just few of the fabulous pictures taken. Welcome to week 35-36. We'll see you soon Lucy!

36 week photobomb. Love this crazy kid!!!

Nicolas Cage is in every other movie, so why not one of ours, too?

After a LONG weekend on the road, we had almost made it home when we started practicing some impressions. Jude loves doing the Minion from Despicable Me when it says "Whaaaaat?". Then he jumped into his spot-on Nicolas Cage (its probably more of an impression of Andy Samberg's impression on Saturday Night Live, but it works). And, as luck would have it, the quote he says is from the JUDE Law episode. Funny coincidence, funny boy.

Here's Jude's impression:

Here's where we got it from:

34 Weeks

This weather is amazing. No that is not a basketball under my shirt. 6 weeks to go everybody!!!

33 1/2 and then 34 weeks on the day.

And just a real hot pic.

33 Weeks and Easter Weekend

33 week appointment at the doctor's office...waiting patiently. And haircut time before our road trip.

We packed our bags for another weekend road trip. This time to celebrate life in many different ways.
Thank you to everyone who has been so wonderful to our family over the last two weeks.

Good Friday we traveled back to Illinois to pay our respects to Great Grandpa Bennet. He was a fantastic man and lived a nice long life. We were excited that Aunt Vanessa and Mike made the trip too. Jude was very happy to see them. It was nice to see friends and family that evening...very special.

We completed the evening with a dip in the pool and hot tub to relax a bit.

The next morning was beautiful. Thank you again for all your well wishes.

Easter Sunday we celebrated with Mamaw and Papaw. The Bunny found us in Mattoon IL.
I don't think he brought enough angry bird gear though, ha.

We planted jelly beans...that grew into flower suckers. Amazing!

We hunted easter eggs...again.

We even found Gigi at the Tuscola "castle" park. 

It was a great day to cook out and let my stretchy skin get some sun. First burn of the year.

Since we always forget to take pictures with these fine folks, 
we jumped at the chance when we remembered the camera for once. 

Angry bird Easter Eggs. Jude seemed to really enjoy it. 
Thanks for hosting us for Easter. It was nice to finish our trip with a relaxing time at your house!

Let's also wrap up our Easter Weekend with a few pics from our bunny playdate at the Post's 
house. A big thank you for inviting us all over to dye and hunt eggs, make cookies and cookout. 
The kids had a blast.

Happy Easter to all!
