Lucie Update- Dec 19, 2014

 Dear Family & Friends,

 Today has been such a great day! The doctors have this "tube thingy" shoved down my throat, but I keep trying to tell them: "I GOT THIS!" Let's take these training wheels off and do this thang they call "life". I got to see my mommy for the first time today since I left my comfort zone, and she is even more beautiful than I remember. The doctors told me that tomorrow, if I behave, mommy and daddy will get to touch me for the first time. I. CAN'T. WAIT! I am a full 12 and a half inches, but you wouldn't be able to tell by just looking at me. I love to sprawl out in my tanning bed, it makes my skin look really pretty, plus I get to wear these SA-weet shades! I look forward to meeting each and every one of you. My parents have told me such great stories of how much you all love them. I love you all already!

 Please pray that I will be on my best behavior tomorrow so that mommy and daddy will get to touch me. Tonight the doctors said that I will get to have this tube taken out of my mouth and upgrade to nasal prongs. Pray for that upgrade. Even though the doctors said I have a long road ahead of me, I am excited to run the race that God has set before me.  I am probably going to have to stay here until around my original due date (April 2015) so that all the other babies don't get super JELLY!  Well, I am off to bed now so that I can make sure to be nice and strong for mommy and daddy tomorrow.

 Hugs and Kisses,

 Lucille :D
