Two month portraits

We took Lucy to the Target portrait studio yesterday to have some pictures made. It was kind of a last-minute decision. To be honest, my hopes were not high. I was just hopeful we'd get one or two "keepers." This is why we chose Target - there is no sitting fee; you just have to pay for the prints you order. That way, if we got through two pictures and Lucy erupted into a meltdown, we wouldn't be out any money! However, before the inevitable meltdown occurred (which it inevitably did), the photographer was able to get several good shots. Here are a few:

The photographer even caught a shot of Lucy's fit right as she was getting warmed up:

Not something we would order a print of, but cute nonetheless.

In other news, I chopped off all of my hair. I had it in my head that I needed to have long hair when the baby came so I could wear it in a ponytail. But I don't like wearing ponytails and the result is too often baby puke all in my hair. Gross! So here's a pic of me, my new 'do, and my beautiful blue-eyed baby:

We made an offer to build a new house and it was accepted by the builder, so we will be homeowners once again in about 5 or 6 months. In the meantime I will be having dreams about granite counters and five-and-a-quarter inch baseboards! Can't wait!

It was hectic after being away for over two months, but things have calmed down for now!
