Dear Sweet Babies,
Today you have been in my belly for seven months, or 31 weeks and 4 days to be exact 🙂 I don’t know where to begin to tell you how excited, happy, and blessed your daddy and I are to know we are close to meeting you and soon you will be in our arms. You daddy and mommy fell in love one day, decided to get married, find a home, and then eventually start a family. You both are the start to that family! Just when we were so thrilled to find out we would be having a baby, God blessed us double time and showered us with another. It’s still hard to believe and yet we go to our ultrasound appointments and there you both are on the screen!
You both have been kicking, turning, and moving a lot lately. Sometimes you even surprise me with how strong you’re becoming and once in a while you’ll even tickle my ribs. Twice a week, I get to hear your heartbeats with Auntie Shaina. It’s so fun to hear you move in my belly. Your heartbeats sound like galloping horses! It will be so much fun to finally see what kind of personalities you each have.
Your daddy is working very hard to get ready for you guys. He’s cleaning, putting together baby gear, preparing storage bins to hold all your cute clothes, and all other kinds of things. He’s been really sweet to mommy and we both can wait to teach you boys to be loving, caring, and respectable people yourselves.
Stay cooking inside my belly for a couple more weeks, OK? I bet you’re both excited to come out and play, but just know that you are in the best place right now. You are warm and cozy, snug and protected. You have food anytime you want and you’re being carried by mommy 24/7! Once you enter the outside world, it will be a little crazy, but we will do our best to get you want you need and make things a little more soothing for you. We’ve read the books, watched the videos, attended the classes, and talked to our own parents, as well as other parents we know. But we’ll make mistakes, too, have our challenging days, and sometimes wonder what in the world we are doing. Just know that no matter what, we will give you all our love.
Until we meet, stay cooking and know that you already each have not only a mommy and daddy who want to give you the world, but wonderful grandparents, aunties, uncles, cousins, and friends who are so excited and patiently waiting to meet you!
Mommy & Daddy
