Dear Baby--22 Weeks


 
Dear Baby,
 
Hey, Darlin'! You are 22 weeks today. Thank you, God. This week, you are the size of a spaghetti squash, are about 11 inches long and 1 pound! Grow baby, grow! Now you can perceive light, hear sounds, and are practicing your sense of touch by holding onto your ears, nose and sometimes, umbilical cord! Your eyebrows and eye lashes are well developed. You had an OB checkup today and a scan tomorrow. Praying continuously that you are healthy, growing on track, and getting everything you need!
 
This past week, we had our sweet friends, Brent and Danielle in for a visit as they prepare to move to NYC. It was great seeing them and enjoying lots of quality time, meals and we even squeezed in a manicure. We're excited for them to move here!
 
 


Daddy and I went to a baby show on Saturday and it was lots of fun! There was a lot going on, but it was great for us to get lots of ideas. We even saw a panel of experts, including one of my favorite Today Show hosts, Erica. As we walked around we picked up a few things, including
 the-cutest-little-elephant-toy-that-I-just-had-to-have-right-that-very-minute.





Other sweet things that arrived this week were this darling handmade onesie that a sweet art teacher at school gifted us. Just so thoughtful and kind of her. Also, a miracle baby shirt for our miracle baby! We have been looking at and narrowing down cribs and are pretty much decided on a carseat. I think we're going with the cybex aton (not sure yet if we should get the 2 or Q), but we're making decisions!

We're also in touch with our medical team and are planning an early September delivery. You'll be around 37 weeks then, and we're praying you are born at the best possible time for you to have the best possible life. I saw that sentence while reading Gaby's blog, who is an incredibly courageous mama-to-be who is expecting her baby Louis while going through cancer. Her positivity and faith are awe-inspiring and I pray right along with the countless others for her health and for her baby Louis. I just have a feeling that he is going to be perfect, and that she's going to be, too. I can't imagine what it's like to be Gaby, and I don't know her personally, but I'm praying for her and little Louis. So when I saw that sentence about praying for him to be born at the best possible time to have the best possible life, I prayed it for you, too. I just have so much faith that you will be born alive and healthy into our arms at the perfect time, and I'm beyond thankful for the whole wide world that's praying for you to get there.

You keep growing big and strong, little one. We are so proud of you. We love you, we love you, we love you so, dear baby.

Mommy and Daddy

Love this and love all the cute stuff Baby G is going to have to look forward to! I'm not sure why, but this week I'm feeling like Baby G is a little boy! Either way, he/she is going to be so blessed and so loved...there are a lot of people praying for you all and anxious to meet your precious little one in just a few short months!
