a 20 week letter

dear baby,

you're currently kicking mommy, which i can't even begin to tell you how much i love.
but here we are at 20 weeks.
half way to meeting you in person.

today we got to see you up close and personal, and i know i'm really biased here. but. you're already the cutest baby alive. we saw your hands and feet up close, and you even flexed those arms for the camera. i think you've got a steiner nose...but i'm not sure where you're getting those luscious lips from. but i can't wait to kiss them. i think you already have your daddy's big feet. you're above average in size, which i'm proud of. and also not surprised considering who your daddy is.

we're completely smitten with you already.

i've waited for this bench mark week to get here for quite sometime. you see, aunt minda is getting married this week, and i get to see some very wonderful friends, and being half way through this pregnancy has just got me all emotional.

but you'll learn that about your mommy.
i tend to be a bit of an emotional person.

i've been counting down the weeks to see you today. because last time we saw you, well it was hard to see even you. you were still this little...blob. please don't take it personal. it's the truth.
but today. today we got to see all of you.
well not all of you. we're keeping some parts of you a surprise.

i have to be honest and tell you that mommy was a little nervous about today. it's basically been the first time we could see and make sure that everything was growing and developing just as it should. it's not that i didn't think it would be...but i'm human. i did know though that no matter what. the Creator of the Universe, the God Who placed the stars in the sky, has created you with the same beauty. every single part of you was put into being on purpose.
i'm going to tell you that all the time, so get used to it.
i trust that God has made you perfect in His image. which you already are.

i still just can't believe that i'm halfway through this pregnancy.
it's been a little bit of a tough road so far. but you're worth every second i didn't feel well.
we're pretty much on the second leg of the tour here. i have a feeling the next twenty weeks are going to fly by, and i honestly hope they do.

because little one, i can't wait to meet you.

i love you more than you'll ever know,
