. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Weeks 27 and 28

Weeks 27 and 28


Dear baby boy, 

I can't believe I am in the last trimester and you're due date is less than three months away!  Time is going quickly, especially this time of the year with the holidays.  It's still hard for me to imagine life with you here.  And while I never forget I'm pregnant, I still can't believe you are really in there and are ours.  

Your big sister loves kissing my belly, talking to you and while I think she will be in for a shock when you get here she loves you so much!  She says over and over that she can't wait to to hug you and hold you.  

I'm feeling pretty tired these days.  Doing regularly things like switching the laundry or picking up Addilyn's toys are getting more and more challenging and I get tired so easily.  You weigh over two pounds, although carrying almost 25 extra feels like you should weigh a lot more!  I'm hoping you're a little smaller than your sister, who was almost nine pounds, just because I want you to come out easier than she did!

We've been spending a lot of time working in your room.  I made your crib sheet, and hung up your gallery wall.  I started a quilt for you this week and I love it.  I love dreaming about what you will look like and praying for you while I work on things for you.  I hope you know how much I love you, even when you were in my belly.  

You move around a lot.  I was describing it to your daddy and told him I feel like you are doing star jumps in there. You can see it from the outside when you move.  I wake up often in the middle of the night, usually because I'm uncomfortable or to go the bathroom, and almost always you start moving a lot, which makes it hard to fall back to sleep.  I guess you're just giving me practice for when you are here!

When I found out you were a boy I was a little nervous, but now I can't even imagine you not being a boy.  I know you are the perfect addition to our family and I am so thankful for you!  Keep growing big and strong.  I can't wait to hold you!  

Love, 

your mom

So sweet!!! Can you believe its already time for the third trimester? Hoping it equally flies by and gives you time to soak in these last days with Addi as the only child :)
