Dear Baby M // 2.

The other day, I told your daddy I thought you were a very advanced baby. Now I’m sure that all moms think this about their children but I just had a sense that you were growing and developing faster than your weeks indicated. Every time I would receive a weekly update from babycenter.com, I would read the description and think, “well my little guy was doing all that weeks ago!” And as it turns out I may just have been right. Today, at a follow up ultrasound they told me that you are measuring at 29 weeks (and today is your 27 week pre-birthday)! Ok so there is a tiny chance this could actually be a bad thing (if I have gestational diabetes, which I’ll find out about on Wednesday) but honestly I can’t help but feel proud of you for being so big and strong. You may very well be two weeks ahead of the game and that makes me smile. I have a feeling it will continue to be these little things that make me so proud to be your mama.

Your little two week advancement might also be due to the conversations we have each morning about your birth. I tell you (usually while I’m in the shower) about how we are going to be a great team and make your entry into this world fast and positive. I also tell you that you should aim to come about two weeks early because I don’t want to have to wait to meet you once you’re fully grown in there. We also discuss how your head should be down and your feet up! Yeah, you probably think I’m a little nuts but hey that your mom…hope you’re not too embarrassed by me.

You are still rockin and rollin up a storm in there. You, my sweet little boy, move SO MUCH. I actually googled if it was possible for you to be moving TOO much, but turns out no, moving a lot is a great thing. It seems that whenever I’m not moving, you are. I wonder if this means you’re going to need constant holding and swaying once out in the world. Please let us get a little sleep if you can. But of course know that we will always be there for you to make you as happy and comfortable as possible.

Your daddy has started singing you Beatles medleys. He has a beautiful voice and although I want nothing more than for you to be who you want to be, I really do hope you inherit his voice and musical abilities. I just picture you two singing and playing together…putting on shows for me!

See you soon baby boy (maybe in 11 weeks?? or whenever you are ready)!

I love you!

Mom

    While the whole entry was amazing, this paragraph bought tears to my eyes. If I wasn’t at work, I’d sit down and bawl – your post was that beatutiful. I am so happy you for you and Luke, but I am even happier for your little boy. Such a blessed baby to have such a caring mother with a kind heart.
