The Nonconformist

Lucky is breaking the mold, setting a new trend, already an individual.

Apparently, no one told this baby that, according to Di Silvestri pattern, it was supposed to be a boy. Because, you see, she is a beautiful, perfect, adorable girl!

So, the incredible boy-girl pattern has come to an end, and the girls, for now, are dominant in the family.

I went to Los Angeles today for a Level 2 Ultrasound (warranted by my "advanced maternal age" of 36) and could not believe how detailed the imaging is now compared to the Level 2 I had just 3 years ago with Tony. We could clearly see her little body, her perfect nose, even the expressions that passed across her face. All fingers and toes were counted, the chambers of the heart were shown to be functioning properly, and the umbilical cord vessels were accounted for. She looks wonderful.

How blessed we are to have an evidently healthy new little daughter. Even if she is already refusing to follow the rules!

How nice! Instead of "Lucky" she should be "Lady Luck".

Well, at least it should be easy to find the box of girls clothes in your warehouse of a garage!

Congratulations!
Actually, I wanted to tell you that when Elias and I recently heard that you are pregnant with #7, we both reacted with: "Seven! The Biblical number of completeness!"
Not that you have to stop there... I mean, there's always multiples of seven...

You know there's one child like her in every family. Always bucking the trend and blasting tradition.

You know that this will bum-out Tim because there is no way that this child will be named Timothy. Unless, you go with something like Timothia. How gross is that??!! With the addition of this girl, can we say "Girls rule and boys drool?" Counting the weeks until we see you guys. Can't wait until I get to say, counting the days. Love you much.

As the youngest of seven and a girl I vote for a Kathleen. Lucky really fits for she will be born into a wonderful family that waits to fill her life with something special that cannot be duplicated. She will know love always and in all ways.
