hello baby. || week 10

1:30 PM

lil' raspberry,

we made it to the double digits!  you're getting so big, it's becoming harder and harder to keep my tummy flat :)  this is the week when we will finally get to hear your heartbeat for the first time, and I want to happy cry just thinking about it!  wednesday is your first "real" doctors appointment and i've been looking forward to it for so long.  not only because we'll get to hear your tiny little heart beating, but also because i want to make sure you're doing good in there, growing big and strong like you're supposed to.

i grew up in a houseful of people (i hope you'll have the same experience, it's so much fun!) so ever since i married your daddy it's been a little bit of an adjustment to spend all day in a house by myself.  it's quiet, and sometimes really boring.  but ever since you came a long it's like i've had a little buddy to talk to all day long--we're quickly becoming the best of friends ;)  and while i'm treasuring these unique and special days and moments with you all snuggled close inside of me, i can't wait for the day when i can hold you in my arms and have fun with you all day long!

i have already been thinking of so many things that i want to do with you.  the other day i went on a walk and ended up at a little stream that runs behind our house in the woods.  i waded in the water and then sat there for a while soaking up the sun, the whole time thinking how once you're born I will love to take you to places just like that.  we'll splash in the water, and try to skip rocks (though your daddy will have to be the one who really teaches you how to do that because i'm terrible at it), and we'll eat a picnic lunch and then maybe take naps in the sun and fresh air :)  life is and will be so much fun with you!


currently your favorite snacks are: apples and peanut butter, chocolate chip bagels with butter, jack-in-the-box curly fries, and frosted mini-wheats.
