Dear little one,
Your daddy and I made the realization yesterday that it was our last holiday with just the two of us. I can’t tell you how giddy it made us to think of celebrating Christmas with you next year. Although truth be told, you’re already getting spoiled. We received so many sweet gifts from people who love you to pieces already. Your mama was a bawling mess over each little boating onesie, Pooh Bear and even a bag of oranges (your food of choice lately).
Your future Aunties even brought celebratory [candy] cigars all the way from New Orleans.
You aren’t even here yet and already stealing the show 🙂
You’ve really started growing over the past month, which has made this mama so happy. Eating was a little rough there for a while, but I’m glad we’ve sorted things out. And that I’ve realized that you love oranges and World Market’s Orange Passion Mango Italian soda more than life itself. Good choice little one…and lucky for you, we just received a whole case of it for Christmas!
I love that you can hear us now. That your daddy tells you stories almost every day. That you happily kick whenever the dog barks. Or soccer is on the television. Or I’m humming. I love feeling your reactions to our world, and can’t wait for you to experience everything in it.
Keeping growing in there little one…we’re only sixteen weeks away from meeting you!
