30 weeks with disappearing toes

Dear Baby,

Three-quarters. You are three-quarters of the way done cooking! And you just keep cooking as long as you need :) At your ultrasound today Dr. Meek told your Daddy and I that you're head-down (good job!), we saw your little heart beating strong, you're measuring at about 3 pounds 3 ounces...and we saw your face!! Oh your sweet face...your closed eyes, your nose, your lips, your chin. You made this Momma of yours cry...but don't worry, they were the happiest tears :)

And your five senses are all functional now! Although you can't see, taste, or smell much now...I do hope you feel cozy and warm, and that you hear the many "I love you"s we tell you daily. Thinking of your five senses...made me think of my own. And I thought I'd share with you five things I can't wait to experience with you as an infant:

I can't wait to SEE your fresh eyes when you look at me, really look at me, for the first time.
I can't wait to HEAR your tender cry, that I will be able to sooth.
I can't wait to TASTE your sweet kisses.
I can't wait to SMELL your baby breath and your peach fuzz skin.
I can't wait to FEEL your chest on my chest, and your breath on my neck.

Sweet baby, I love you more than you know. Keep growing! And maybe tone down the kicks to my ribs, pretty please ;)

Love always,
Mom

PS - So sorry I missed your 28 week letter and baby bump photos...somehow the holidays came and went and slipped through my fingers! That won't happen again, promise :)

PPS - Here are 3 sonogram photos of your little face...it's horizontal and near the top, your forehead on the right, and chin on the left. These pictures are hard to make out...I wish we could have captured video of it! But I know I'll get plenty of video of you later to make up for it ;)

You've got to stop doing these things. You're going to make me pregnant..or make me want to have another little one more than I already do! I'm so excited for you! And HELLO gorgeous. You seriously look so beautiful in every way. That red lipstick and you were meant to wear each other. Xoxo

Beautiful HALEY! What sweet sweet words to your VERY-LOVED little one! I find myself getting so very excited "meet" this baby, too! So happy that you got some precious sonogram photos.....aren't they just the best? To be able to hold those pictures in your hands, and get a peek of your baby--there's nothing quite like it!

Love your pretty sweater and topknot. You have the CUTEST bump ever...bye bye toes! ;)

Kati Howard said...

You're so cute Haley! Can't wait for my next ultrasound, as it will be one of the last times we will watch our little guy from the outside. Happy cooking.... :)

Shalyn said...

You are ADORABLE! I am just loving your little letters. I think it's a boy (or maybe I am just hoping a little bit more for a boy since Kinzie and I are having them?!) do you have any inklings?

Chelsea said...
