I saw you today. You are growing up so fast already! It seems like yesterday that you were the size of a poppyseed! You are adorable with your little(BIG) head and your stubby arms. You were just hanging out in my belly- the most incredible thing I have ever seen in my entire life. I prayed harder than I have ever prayed before that I would get to see you…and that your heart would be beating. As the ultrasound technician turned the wand to and fro, I saw your back….the beginnings of your shoulders…your precious little armbuds…a stubby little button nose. To me, you look just like your Dad already…just the size of a green olive!
All of the sudden the technician says- There it is! The heart is beating! The tears stopped streaming down my face as I looked up and saw it. It was magnificent! I nearly jumped off the table. Your Dad is on a business trip, but we were texting every other second back and forth. I sent him a picture from my phone and a little while later it hit him. He said, “I can’t believe our baby is in your tummy!!”
I just hope you are nice and comfy in there- you have 7 more months to hang out and grow. I love you so much already.
