Sweet baby girl, it's been a while since I've sat down and written to you. We have had a lot going on over the past few months and of course you know all about being busy. While you have been working hard on growing healthy and strong the world outside here has been preparing a place for you. You're full of movements that can rock my core from one side to the other and I'm beginning to get to know your patterns. Unfortunately you are going to come out a total night owl. That's alright though, your big brother taught me that if nights are made for anything other than sleeping it's rocking and soothing a baby. As I write to you tonight your nightly ritual of dancing in my belly. Moving from side to side and pushing with all your might, I can tell you're quickly running out of room in there.
We're getting more excited with each passing day about your arrival, anticipating the moment we get to meet you.
We found the home we will welcome you into and have been busy bees as we prepare it for your arrival. You now have a place where you will lay your sweet head, sheets cleaned and ready to go. There is a closet slowly filling with sweet little things; quite different from the closet across the hall pale pinks, vintage flowers and little subtle ruffles line the wall.
Your brother and daddy have been talking to you quite a bit lately, and I just know you can feel their love for you through my belly. Although I've been down this road before, I'm still amazed by the fact that I can't imagine what life will be like once you're here. Impossible to imagine what your face will look like, how you will smell, or the sweet sounds you'll make. What I can imagine is you filling a space in my heart that I never knew was there. A space God created perfectly for you, it grows each day you grow and it's a feeling that won't go away. Soon I'll place you inside it, and you'll fit like a glove, molded to perfection to be forever mine. I love you darling angel girl, 7 weeks till you arrive.....or maybe even sooner. Let the countdown begin.
