Dear baby girl,
You are almost 38 weeks old. We are so ready to finally meet you. Your daddy was telling you last night that he is ready for you to come join us. I think he is growing impatient, which is really cute to watch. Your grandparents are also more than ready for you to join us.
You should know, as much as I want to hold you in my arms I will really miss our moments together. Feeling you squirm around to get comfortable, being completely safe in my tummy. I will finally have to share you with everyone else. Is it okay to admit that I want to be your favorite?
I’m so excited to see your face. I can’t help but wonder what you look like. Will you have dark hair like your dad, or light hair like me? Will it be straight or curly?! Your grandpa Ringl had a dream about you and you had a head full of curls. I’m jealous he got to see you, even if it was a dream. When I dream about you it’s always really weird. One time you were born an egg and I had to keep you under a heating lamp. Yes, you have been giving mommy really weird dreams. I know whatever you look like you are going to be absolutely beautiful.
Last night I thought you were trying to kick your way out of my belly. It’s so fun to watch you move around and make my stomach look like a big bowl of Jello. I have a feeling you are going to have some powerful lungs, getting the hiccups twice a day must be building them nice and strong! Loud or quiet, we are ready to hear you.
I’ve been told that the moment we lay eyes on you we will understand an entirely new form of love. Which is hard to understand because we already love you so very much. I can’t wait to kiss you and count all your tiny fingers and toes. I wonder how big you’re going to be? The Doctor said she thinks you’ll be about 7 pounds. Of course I know there is no way to really know until you get here. I bet you will look so tiny in your daddy’s arms. He set your car seat up in the car for you. We even have your diaper bag packed and ready.
Feel free to knock when you are ready to come join us. There are a ton of people waiting to answer.
I love you,
