Sweet 16 in stripes


Dear baby,

It's your sweet sixteen! ;) Almost half way there...definitely almost, but not quite. You sure are growing, and so is my belly! You've made me "pop" much sooner than your older brother Brooks did. And thats a-okay. I actually love showing you off :) As soon as we tell people I have a bun in the oven (that's you, you're the bun:) people are so excited and almost always immediately ask when we will be able to find out if you're a boy or a girl. And almost always they are in shock when we tell them you're going to be a surprise. Oh but we love it that way!! It'll be like Christmas in March! I still can't wait though for our 20ish-week appointment where they check up on you and we get all sorts of pictures/sonograms of your sweet face and body...I can't wait!

Since I wrote you last you've grown to about the size of an avocado (yum!). Your little limbs now have joints, and your legs have finally outgrown your arms. Your eyelashes, eyebrows, and hair are starting to grow in (will it be light or dark?). And my favorite...tiny bones are forming in your ears so you can now pick up the sound of my voice! *sigh* oh I LOVE it, and I hope you enjoy the songs I sing to you & your brother (sorry it's probably not always in tune;).

I love you so much. And I know I said it in my last letter to you, but a couple messages in General Conference reminded of how truly blessed I am to be able to be pregnant with your sweet sprit and feel you grow. (I can't really feel you yet, but hopefully soon!) Keep growing my little avocado!

Love always,
Mom

PS - These photos were taken by your sweet Dad right before we walked into the restaurant on our date tonight. We ate pizza and talked and laughed. You and I are both so lucky to have him in our lives :)

PPS - It rained this morning...a beautiful rain that made it crisp and cool outside. And then the MOST STUNNING rainbow I think I've ever seen appeared! I could see both ends of it...right from our front door. What a sweet message from Heaven :)

You look stunning! Love your outfit and those BOOTS! I love that you all are not finding out the sex of the baby. We would like to do that with the next child. That moment when they arrive and you find out I heard is just an amazing feeling. Congratulations again!

Haley...you are just the sweetest girl ever. These little letters to your little "BUN" melt my sentimental heart.

You are looking STUNNING in stripes on your sweet sixteenth week. :)

The time is just flying right along...you will get to meet this precious baby in no time! I am so so so so happy for YOU and Adam and Brooks. :)
