Lucy Rae | Newly Born

Meet Lucy, this little girl has a special place in my heart! I feel like I would get asked a million times over when Allie & Jake were going to have kids, if they were going to have any kids. (You know, because everyone has to have kids, and it has to happen right after marriage **insert sarcasm). My answer always was, I don't know. I didn't know when they were going to add to their family, if they even wanted to have little baby Pohjalas.  

I think after becoming a mom you want people to experience the blessing that is motherhood, and I know that in my heart I wanted Allie to experience it too! I was thrilled when they stopped over and told us they were pregnant!! Then the news came... They were waiting to find out what they were having until baby arrived. What?! Didn't they know that I am the most impatient person?!

Fast forward-We were leaving for Tennessee and I get a message from Allie saying her doctor had accidentally broke her water! (This is why I'm not meant to go on vacation- Lucy was the 2nd baby to come early, before I left for vacation!) Thankfully Allie was far enough along that Lucy was healthy! So I not so patiently waited for a text from Allie, and I waited some more and some more! FINALLY a message, introducing me to Lucy. My heart melted! She was perfect!! I couldn't have been more excited for them! I knew Jake was already wrapped around her finger!! I was so excited to meet her!! I can't tell you how much I love capturing this moments for friends. Makes me love my job so much more! 

So excited to watch Lucy grow, but for now enjoy her while she is little-- some of my favorites!
