Almost 28 Weeks

Wow, babygirl, we're just about to the third trimester!  You celebrated your "1st" Christmas with us this year and boy you really kicked up a storm!  It's good to know you were having as much fun as your big brother was, and oh was he ever.

It's so reassuring to me that you move so much, letting me know that all is well, I really need that.  We have our next appointment on the 3rd, officially the New Year and then it's only a couple of months until you make your debut!  How did the time fly so quickly?  I'm cherishing every single moment I have with you inside of me, you will be our last baby and I don't want to forget this feeling.

I'm trying to figure out how to paint the nursury.  You and Eli are going to share a room for quite a while, I don't feel comfortable with being on a different level than my babies and the only other room is on the lower level, I need to keep my babes close to me.

I love you little girl, we all do.  Can't wait to hold you in my arms.

Love Mommy, Daddy, and Eli

Jeez, 26 weeks!

How did we get this far already, baby girl?

I swear I just found out about you yesterday, and now we've only got roughly 13ish weeks to go, I know you're a little girl, and you love to kick/punch me in some very uncomfortable places (and you are doing so as I type this right now).

Daddy and I haven't really narrowed down names, yet.  Daddy likes Russian girl names, which is funny because I love them, I just never really thought he was into them.  We've been tossing a few around (Mika, Mischa, stuff like that) but I worry about pronunciation and teasing, I don't want you to have a hard time just because of the name mommy and daddy gave you.

I get scared sometimes, when you don't move as much as you have been, or you go long periods of time without kicking me.  I need that reassurance to know you are okay, because I already love you so much and can't stand the thought of you not being with us.  I need to see your face, you eyes, you chest moving up and down as you take glorious breaths, your tiny little hands curled up into baby fists, long chicken legs and tiny feet.  I need to see you ALIVE.  So please, promise me that will happen.  Because I need YOU.

Love always,
Mommy, Daddy, and Eli

And you are...

A girl!  I got to see you for so long yesterday, baby girl.  You're absolutely beautiful and perfect, I knew you would be.  Growing big and strong and healthy, becoming a perfect little sister to your big brother.  It's hard to think that in only three months you will be here with us, breathing and growing and smiling and cooing, all those little baby things that I adore.

Daddy is pretty excited, too, though he tried to hide it.  He bought your very first baby outfit: a nice warm footie jammie that's light purple with white polka dots and it says "I Love Daddy".  He also was already trying to pick out your name last night so we have a couple in mind, we can't wait to know your name.

Okay, baby, I have to go wrangle your big brother, he's trying to tear the house apart (sweep the floor with his yellow broom).

Mommy, Daddy and Eli love you!
