Dear Baby--26 Weeks


Dear Baby,

Hey, love! This week you are 26 weeks. You are as about as long as a scallion, around 14 inches long, and weigh 1 2/3 pounds. This week our prayers were answered when we received the results of your echo heart scan--perfectly normal! And, mommy has been worrying incessantly about your femurs (sorry, honey) and they were measuring on track at your ultrasound! We praise God and are so incredibly thankful. Your heartrate this week was measured at 139 bpm. This week, your eyes are open and your ears are becoming consistently more sensitive to sound. You are taking small breaths of water, practicing for the air you'll breathe when you are born.

 I had another dream about you! This one was pretty funny because Daddy, for some reason, had the inside knowledge on whether you are a boy or a girl. We were in India for our latest appointment and he proudly announced, "our baby is a boy!" And I was overjoyed! A sweet baby boy! I told him I was surprised because I thought you were a girl. Then he said, well, baby is a girl but I wanted to make sure you'd be excited either way! So silly. Of course I will, and he will, too! We are absolutely thrilled beyond belief to meet you, sweet darling. We can only guess at whether you're a boy or girl and it doesn't matter one bit to us--all that matters is that you are happy and healthy and in our arms. We will surely be in shock even after we meet you! You are perfectly you and we cannot wait to meet you in approximately 11 weeks!
 
You are doing an absolutely fantastic job, sweetheart. Keep growing big and strong and know how proud of you we are. We love you, we love you, we love you so, dear baby.
 
Mommy and Daddy
