hello baby. || week 9

lil' raspberry,


when I first found out that a little tiny you was growing inside of me, it seemed like the next 8 months would be forever + a day.  and at times it has definitely felt like waiting to hold you and kiss you was going to be the longest wait of my life.  but i can't believe how quickly time is passing, you're over 2 months along now!  i'm nearing the end of my 1st trimester, and that means several things.  first of all, most of your major organs are in place and getting stronger and bigger every day.  soon you'll be growing so fast, my tummy won't be able to hide you any more--and I'm so excited about that!  Even now, after i've eaten a big meal my tummy has a little pooch, which i LOVE, because it's just one more sign that you're in there growing big and strong!

i've also started to slowly get over my morning sickness, and i can now cook your daddy breakfast and dinner without feeling sick, and i'm eating a lot better now too!  your current fav snacks seem to be popcorn and frosted mini wheats ;)

i love you so much precious baby, and i'm so excited to be your mommy!

love,
mommy

currently your favorite snacks are: popcorn, popcorn, and moooooore popcorn.  seriously, you can't get enough of that stuff ;)

lil raspberry,

you are currently the size of a grape.  less than an inch long with tiny webbed fingers and toes that are beginning to form you are starting to wiggle around in my tummy for the first time as your nervous system has begun to send little shivers of feeling through your tiny body.

i love you so so much.  i can't feel you, or see you, i can't touch you or talk to you and have you hear me, but I love you.  I love you because you are mine, a gift given specifically to me and your daddy from the Giver of all good things, and what could be more precious and wonderful than that?

love,
mommy
