Waiting for Lucy

I call these photos our "waiting for Lucy photos" because I feel like we are in that limbo stage right now. Our baby girl still has some time to chunk up and grow but for the most part we are just waiting for time to pass until she is here. Her room is complete and I catch glimpses of it every time I put Ford to bed, he also loves going in there and playing. Physically I am more than ready to meet our little girl, somehow it is hard for me to believe I was pregnant for 41 weeks with Ford. Ouch. But emotionally, not sure I will be ready until they put her on my chest. I am not alone as a second time mom to be in being anxious about loving another baby but I hear it will come easy. My heart won't 'make room' for her... it will grow and stretch in ways I never knew it could. That is encouraging to hear from moms of 2, 3, 4, 5 children because now my heart is just swollen with love for my Ford. We had the chance to take these photos 2 weeks ago with Mallorie Owens and I don't think I've looked at them without crying since. Knowing that these are the last few moments of our family of 3 is bittersweet and exhilarating. She captured the sweetest moments between our family and I love that Jon and I finally have decent pictures of us, sans babies. I still can't believe I get to parent with him...a son AND a daughter?! Life has been really good lately. I'm trying my best not to get overwhelmed by the changes to come in less than 5 weeks but enjoying these days where I get 10 hours of sleep and know the territory. One day soon, Ford will no longer remember life as an only child and we will probably look back and think, wow we had it easy with one! And these pictures I will cherish to remind me of this season. So sweet and so fleeting!


























If you're looking for an Austin photographer I can't recommend Mallorie Owens enough! I mean the pictures speak for her talent alone. Mention my name when booking your session to receive $100 off!

These are amazing! I can't even pick a favourite. Maybe the really zoomed out one with the full trees showing? All of them are great memories for you to keep.

I will echo every other comment, you are gorgeous Ruthie!!! You look so beautiful and the photos are awesome. I can't wait to follow your life and see how life as a family of 4 is for you. Hoping one day to join you with our own addition, whenever the Lord blesses us with another baby. Ford is going to be such a great big brother!
