Someone told me that I should write letters to you. I don't take everyone's advice about baby stuff, but I have a few reasons for writing these letters to you. First of all I don't really want to post your ultrasound photos or my babybump photos on facebook. But I do want you to have them one day.
By the time you are born, my dear baby, our family will have been established for 2.5 years. Your daddy and I are very excited about you joining our family! I'll admit, though, that we're also a bit nervous. When you're born, that'll make us parents, and that is a big change for us!
When we first found out we were pregnant, we kept it to ourselves for a little while. Kind of like a sweet secret we could share just between us. Soon we made an announcement that you would be born, and I went to the doctor to get a look at you. Here is the first picture we have of you:
At twelve weeks you were still so tiny I couldn't feel you moving yet, nor did I look pregnant yet, so it was a surprise to see how wiggly you were! Through the ultrasound I got to watch you move around, and that was really neat for me. It made you seem much more real.
Here are two pictures from the ultrasound 6 weeks later. By this time I was getting a 'baby bump', but I hadn't felt you move around yet. Your dad got to come with you and I to this appointment, and watch the monitor while the doctor took a good look at you. It was so fun to see you moving around again! This time, the doctor mentioned that you were SO wiggly that she couldn't get some of the measurements she needed. That's when I thought this must be a trend, and you'd probably be a very active little person. The doctor also told us you are most likely a girl, though we'll have to wait until you're born to find out for sure.

|18 weeks, #2. I must say, baby of mine, you have a beautiful profile. :)|
