Getting our first real smiles this month!
The mixture of sweat and breastmilk after hours of nap cuddles.
The stinkiest of toots I’ve ever smelled from a child ha!
Arched back stretches and big long yawns.
The softest chubbiest cheeks.
Cutest little baby snores.
Cuddles while binge watching Marvel movies in chronological order.
The most hilarious moans and grunts while eating. Especially after a bottle of formula or a long nap!
We are at the final countdown! To us you are no longer “baby” but have a name. We are so excited to meet you and find out what you look like and who you are.
This trimester has had it’s aches and pains but overall it has been pretty easy. It is definitely a waiting game though; I feel bad for spending so much time sitting on the couch watching TV and sleeping in but I know this will be the last time in a very long time I will get to do that.
Dad likes to talk to you through my belly and you love to sit perfectly still when he tries to feel your kicks. You are a hiccuper and I’ll feel you hiccup almost 4 times a day. Whenever I start to worry and get anxious you seem to move or kick me as if you are trying to tell me to calm down, that you’re just fine.
I think because we waited three long years and have had so much time to dream and prepare for you, we can enter this season with our eyes open and be ready for such a colossal change. We are patiently/impatiently waiting for you to join our family!
I’ve always been a gatherer of information and lists or goals or things I want to do. So when it comes to Christmas activities I, of course, have a list of things I want to do! I don’t think I can choose just 9 but these are what I really want to do this Christmas season or next!
1 | I made these two years ago with friends and they were a little fragile but made the house smell amazing!
2 | This is a tradition I will be doing at my house, the peppermint snowmen was my go-to activity as a babysitter during the holiday season.
3 | I love the idea of a pretzel cabin than a gingerbread house because let’s be honest, those things never actually stand up
5 | Next year we’ll have a cute foot to document so you can best be sure I’ll be making one of these next year!
7 | I love hot cocoa and I love fudge, let’s put them together shall we!?
9 | I think this colorful garland would be so fun with kids, and I’m sure they’d love to snack on them in the meantime too ha.
As we get closer and closer to meeting you, I keep thinking about who you will be. Will you be an artist like me or a smartie like your dad? Will you have my dimples or his bright blue eyes? I hope you get his spunk for life and his ability to make everyone around him laugh and smile. You sure do love to kick so I think we’ll have our hands full! We found out this trimester that you are a girl and I already know you’ll have daddy wrapped around your finger.
We received so much love this trimester with two baby showers and tons of gifts for you. Dad was so excited that he set up your crib and surprised me when I returned home! He loves that you have a lot of swan items and I already know you’re going to be a daddy’s girl for sure.
It has been amazing to see my body grow and change to home your growing body. It’s a little weird to see the scale hit numbers I never have before and my belly button slowly disappear but I’ve been waiting for you for so long and I am really loving being pregnant! I have had it so easy and am grateful for a smooth pregnancy so far. We are so excited to meet you very soon!
