You've been growing in this belly of mine for 33 weeks now...I hope I've made a comfy home for you :) And let me just tell you, please enjoy your stay as long as you want. Your sweet Daddy and I both have a strong feeling that you're going to come early, which is just fine with us (actually makes me giddy thinking about it!) as long as you're healthy. I've been experiencing braxton hicks for the past few weeks, and they've gotten stronger by the day...more intense than I remember when I was pregnant with your older brother. But I welcome them because I know they're part of the whole labor process that's helping get you into my arms :)
Today was Dad's day off...and it was such a good day. We woke up when Brooks woke up and enjoyed breakfast together. You and I shared a glass of soy milk and a yummy piece of toast with peanut butter, bananas, and cinnamon :) And then we got started on clearing out the room that we're going to make your nursery. It's been a catch-all room for boxes full of memories from your Dad's high school wrestling, his mission to Japan, papers from our time at college, and some of our wedding photos and our wedding guest book. I loved that part of the time we were able to reminisce and talk about those fond memories...and then the next minute we talked about how excited we are to have you sleep in this room and about the sweet memories we know will be created there with you. Oh sweetheart I'm so excited to work on your nursery! I've procrastinated much too long, and only have a matter of weeks (7-ish) but I think we'll be able to do it. Like I said earlier, you just stay cozy in my belly as long as you need ;)
Tomorrow I go for a doctor's appointment and I can't wait to hear your heartbeat. Best sound in the world.
Love you forever,
PS - The other night your Dad and I were talking in bed and you started to put on a little show for us. You had us laughing because you made it look like I was belly dancing while laying down! ha! Adam of course put his hand on my belly and felt your little dance moves...we couldn't get enough :)
