Hello, my sweet baby!
How are you doing down there? I cannot believe how much you (and I) have grown in the past few weeks. It has gone by so quickly. For a while there you were just a bump, but now you are growing so fast and we are huge! I love that I can feel you move all the time. Sometimes I wonder what you are doing in there. You are so active, not only kicking and poking my tummy, but doing flips and turns. It feels like you are having a lot of fun!
Every time your daddy goes to touch my tummy you stop moving. Its like you are teasing him and making him wait for your next move. He said that once you are here you will probably do that, be acting silly, then stop once dad is looking. Yesterday in the doctor's office as the nurse was checking your heart beat you kicked her right on that monitor. It made her laugh.
At my last doctors appointment you and I were measuring one week ahead. Yesterday he said that you are probably going to be 7 1/2 to 8 1/2 pounds. That really doesn't surprise me. Look at your grandpa, Papi. It will make much more sense how BIG and STRONG you are once you meet him. Besides, I was a big baby, too.
You are about 15.7 inches long now, and weigh almost 3 pounds. This is the most pivotal time for your skeletal structure. That explains why I have been craving a lot of milk. That is good for the both of us!
We have been busy getting your room ready. Although not much is done yet, you could come today and I would be ok with that. I am just ready to meet you and kiss your sweet face. But let's hold on for another 10 weeks. We don't want you here too early.
I folded your clothes this weekend and was in awe over every little thing you have. I can't believe you will be filling those little onsies and socks so very soon. I want you to be warm and bundled up once you are here!
I love you so much today, and more tomorrow. Grow big and strong today!
All my love.
