Dear Forest,

You can come any day now, kid! partially I am just dying to meet ya—I have dreams about it—but also partially, I am so uncomfortable and sore and emotional that I just don’t want to be pregnant anymore! But mostly, I can not wait to meet you and snuggle you and kiss your face and see your tiny toes!

You stick your butt out to stretch in the mornings and it’s one of my favorite things. You kick back when I push on ya a little bit, and you still love sweets, music, and your dad’s voice the best!

Any day now, kid!!!! We can not wait to kiss ya.

love you so much

love, your mama bear
