Can you believe we are at 39 weeks? I feel like we just posted our very first weekly photo. Granted we didn’t start till 16 weeks, but wow! Things are still going great. Healthy, baby is right where she needs to be (yep, she flipped back around!!) and we are moving forward as expected. Our official due date is this Friday, Sept. 3rd. Did you know that Sept. 4th is my 28th birthday? Crazy how she might be born on my birthday. Â I will say it is very hard to wait day after day for something so life changing to happen though when it could happen at anytime. Distraction is key. So I am trying to stay busy. This week I have booked up my days so I don’t sit home depressed and constantly thinking when this is going to happen. Tomorrow evening we have dinner with friends planned. Tuesday I have Breakfast plans with a friend from our church. My sister Amy is coming to visit from Rochester on Tuesday afternoon and then on Thursday my mom is coming out to hang out, and of course I would be happy happy if the baby decided she wanted to make an appearance anytime this week!
Dear Baby Girl:
It is almost time! The fear of giving birth is quickly leaving and being replaced with excitement and anticipation for your arrival. Daddy had a surprise birthday dinner planned tonight for me. Our friends were there that just had a baby and we got to hold him. He was so tiny and precious. I cant wait for that to be you. Your daddy held him too and I think it made me love him even more watching him hold that little baby. He had the biggest smile on his face. I know I will cry the first time I see him hold you. Everyone has been guessing your name lately. It has been so fun to hear all the guesses. We are so, so excited to announce to you everyone. We think your name is just perfect. Guess what? I made you doll the other day. It is pretty cute if I do say so myself. haha. I hope you will love her. Well its very late. its 2:45am. I couldn’t sleep so I got up to work on somethings, but momma is getting sleepy. I am off to bed. I hope the next time I write a letter it will be because you are in our arms.
Anxiously awaiting your arrival,
