Dear Baby,
The last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind of excitement! We had our second ultrasound and we found out that you are a girl! I cannot wait to show you the world from a female perspective. I confess that I was a little worried about a certain train-tracks rug your dad was eyeing for your room if you were a boy… And I was thinking that it might have been a challenge for me to get used to robots and dragons! I know it is such a cliche, but I’ve always been a very girly girl despite my free spirit. In any case, I’m sure your dad and I are still going to make sure you are a tomboy. We are going to do lots of art, go traveling, camping and hiking, and your dad is going to teach you all kinds of cool stuff like music, snowboarding, skateboarding, surfing and sailing. I just love the idea that we’ll be a cute little family and have lots of fun together.
Our new little ritual is that I sing to you in the car. I think you enjoy that. I always feel such bliss when I do it. Besides, now I can also feel you move! And indeed I’m feeling you on my left side right now as I type. Your dad can feel it too and he covers you with kisses all the time. Can you feel us the way we feel you? I sure hope so! This is such a marvelous experience and it is one that is very hard to explain. I feel really fortunate to be pregnant with you.
Onto another week and we should be hitting our halfway point in this journey at 20 weeks! It is surreal to think that so soon you’ll be with us. I’m on a true countdown to meet you, my little girl. I’m going to have to hold myself back to not spoil you too much.
Love you.
ps: I bought your first gift this week. It’s a cute little bodysuit from Tea. So sweet I couldn’t resist!
