Week 28

Sweet baby, you're settling into the proper position for birth and been busy adding new skills such as blinking to the already impressive tricks like coughing, sucking, hiccuping and taking practice breaths. Your sleep now includes the REM phase. What have you been dreaming about?

Week 27

Sweet baby, I have never been so curious to meet someone my entire life. I dream of the day I get to hold you, kiss your little hands, precious feet and that adorable face.

We are officially in our 3rd trimester. Each day brings us closer to the day we rush to the hospital in panic as you try to make your way to the outside world. We are doing everything we can to be prepared to meet you. Birth classes started on Tuesday for the next 4 weeks. Mommy wasn't taking the breathing exercises so seriously but daddy was quick to remind her she'll be crying later if she doesn't pay attention now :)

Week 26

In preparation of welcoming you in to our lives, daddy and mommy have been gearing up for you baby boy. Daddy assembled your stroller, car seat and pack n' play. Mommy signed up for a baby care class over the weekend with daddy. We also started our registry so we have everything we need by the time we get to see your cute face. Mommy was a bit of a drama queen and had a fainting spell at Baby's R Us but not to worry, we had a nurse on call. There are so many products and styles of products that the choices seem infinite when it comes to baby products. It was overwhelming but with the help of a good friend and research, we got it all down.

How are you enjoying listening to music? I think you like Jack Johnson the most. I can tell by your kicking. I don't blame you :)

I can't say enough how much we're in love with you and we haven't met you yet.

Week 25

Something about knowing that I'm a mother to an unborn child made me feel so special on this Mother's Day. It's the first of many happy mother's days hopefully!

Week 24

Those little ears of yours are getting sharper and can hear very loud sounds, from a yapping dog to a jackhammer. Also by now, that fabulous face is almost full formed, complete with eyelashes, eyebrows and hair. You're gaining steadily at a rate of six ounces per week. Much of that weight comes from accumulating baby fat, as well as from growing organs, bones and muscle. I love you my little munchkin.

Week 23

My little peanut, beginning this week, you start to pack on the pounds which means mama will too. By the month's end, you'll be double the weight you are now though I won't be. Your saggy skin will start to fit your frame as fat deposits fill things out. You're growing so fast and I love feeling those strong kicks all day long.
