33 weeks

Hey Sweet Baby Girl -

Yesterday I had yet another dr appt where she would listen and just smile when I read her off my list of aches and pains and weird things happening to me. I told her that you will have days when you move like crazy, then the very next day you just take it easy. She laughed and said we all have days like that. I didn't really learn anything new at this appointment. She did tell me that my blood pressure has been border line high for the past couple of visits and that she will start watching me very close from here on out to make sure it doesn't get out of control. It was a good visit, one more two week appt, then we start going every week!

As you and I were leaving, she looked at me and said with a huge smile on her face, "It's almost time!" I had forgot that she said that until now. But she's so right. Oh my goodness, it IS almost time! Your Daddy and I are getting so anxious about "your big day", your arrival date. It is going to be such a great day and a day that we will never forget. I pray that God will continue to allow you to grow strong and healthy (inside and outside of my belly) and that he will prepare your Daddy and I to be the perfect parents for you. He already knows everything about you. Everything that your Daddy and I can't wait to learn. He loved you first. He created you. And He choose us to love, protect and raise you here. We are so excited and can't wait to see you in person in less than 7 weeks!

Well, I better go for now, your Daddy has been all over me about packing my hospital bag. He has had several dreams now that "your big day" was here and my bag wasn't even packed. So, I'll be working on packing the bag tonight as much as I can just to be ready in advance for "your big day". We love you Baby Girl! - your Momma & Daddy

Ugh. I love those letters to your daughter... So, so, so beautiful!
ps. Thanks for praying for me Jill, it means a lot.

And yes, Baby Girl, your Mommy's friend Ms. Taylor also agrees with your Daddy, get that bag organized... at the very least! :-)

Jillie! So sweet that you said, "He loved you first." I seriously just teared up!

And yeah--my phone died right as we got off the elevator, getting to the hospital tonight. And we didn't get home until like 12:45 am, so I certainly wasn't going to call then. But you'll see the sweetness on my blog.

Back to you--it is almost time! I can't believe it! It's crazy for me to think that you will have your sweet little mystery girl BEFORE Thanksgiving, and she'll be getting bigger already by Christmas!!! Yay!
