Dear Baby; Week Twenty Seven

Dear Baby,

I feel like an elephant. I have such a hard time bending over to tie my shoes and trying to get comfortable at any given time. You are getting so big. It is hard to imagine that my belly is going to keep getting bigger, but it is true!

You are obsessed with my right side ribs. Seriously. You never stop kicking and squirming against my rib cage. It is the strangest and coolest feeling ever. I keep worrying that you are going to break one of my ribs when you get a little stronger. When I was a baby in my mommy's belly I fractured one of her ribs by kicking her, and she still loves me. So don't worry, if you do any damage I will still love you with all of my heart! So you keep practicing those big kicks and punches and whatever you need to do to keep busy in there. We only have 3 months to go!

I am keeping busy by making you a blanket. I haven't made anything like it before, but I know how to crochet a bit and decided to make you something. It is actually looking so good! I really hope you like it!

I am also keeping busy by making some freezer meals to have when you take up all of my energy and time and I don't feel like cooking for a while. Our freezer is stockpiled and I am going to be ready to give you my full attention and love!

We bought a little dresser/change table, and a rocking chair for your nursery last week. Your room is really looking like a nursery now. When I go in there I can easily imagine you smiling up at me from your crib. And when I sit in the rocking chair I can easily imagine holding you there in the wee hours of the night as I fight to keep my eyes open and try to get you to close yours.

Your daddy is getting so excited to meet you. He keeps saying that he is just so ready to hold you in his arms. I can't wait for you to know the love of a father. It is something I missed out on when I was a child and I praise God all the time that you are going to have a daddy who adores you.

We keep trying to guess what you are going to be like. Girl or boy, shy or outgoing, artistic or sporty, or both, tall or short, curvy like me or thin like your dad. We love guessing but we know you will completely surprise us. There is no way we could guess all that you will be. What is cool is that God knows, completely. He has you all planned out! I can't wait to see what kind of incredible masterpiece He has created in you.

Hold tight baby.

Love, Mommy.
