Letters to BG2 (Week 32)
Dear Baby Girl,
It’s snowwwwing!! We took the belly shot photo shoot on the road tonight to take advantage of the cool (no pun intended) backdrop. We worked fast since Mommy wasn’t wearing a coat and didn’t want you to get too cold! I’ve got to admit, in the past I’ve always despised the white stuff, but there’s something about the first snowfall of the year that is still exciting. And I also am finding myself warming up to it more and more now that I’m a parent. I start to think about you and your brother having fun playing outside in it for the first time together, building snow people, being pulled around the neighborhood hills in sleds, then coming inside with red little noses where I’ll warm you up with some mugs of hot marshmallowy cocoa. I can’t wait for your Daddy and I to make a lifetime of memories with you two. Suddenly I feel very antsy to meet you. Up until now this pregnancy has flown by. I know it’s going to continue to, especially given all of the other distractions that come with the holiday season, but now it seems like things are slowing down and I want to speed them up. You’re practically full-size in there at this point. My newsletters approximate that you’re around 19 inches and 4.5 lbs. I am just dying to know what you’re going to look like – redhead like your brother…brunette like Mommy…sandy haired like Daddy? And I can’t wait for that moment when I pull you onto my chest and we first lay eyes on one another. I’ve been daydreaming about it ever since I found out you were real. All that said, it’s still much too early. So keep growing strong in there and we will see you when it’s safe and you are good and ready to come on out.
