My Sweet Baby,
This is the three month mark. The mark of the exhale. The mark of end of the first trimester. Oh baby, how much we love you already. How much your big sister loves you already. How much she talks to you in her ‘baby talk’ and kisses my belly saying “hi baby, hiiii.” It makes me smile to hear her already in love with you. But never to underestimate how much I love you. It still amazes me the bond that a mother has with her unborn child. The bond that begins the day that those two pink lines appear on that stick. And how much that bond grows and thickens and stretches. I can’t wait to hold you in my arms and breathe a sigh of relief that you are here and healthy and all mine!
Your heartbeat is strong – in the 160’s, and when we caught a peek of you on that magical screen last week, your little legs did not stop moving! It’s amazing to me that you are already perfectly formed and complete in there – and just have a lot of growing to do. Your arms and legs moved around and around. You flipped and turned and moved all over the place. Your face is perfect and beautiful – I already dream of kissing those cheeks and forehead and that perfect little spot at the top of your nose, right between your eyes. I just smile thinking about it…
Keep growing little baby, keep growing.
I love you!
