We’re almost halfway through annoying each other! You’ve been making me sick, pee, eat, barf, sleep, not sleep, fart and grunt like an elephant for the past 20 weeks while I’ve subjected you to my car singing, your sister, barfing and possibly one too many Subway chicken sandwiches with a few too many pickles and banana peppers. I’m also kind of sorry for poking at you so much. But seriously, I want to feeeel you in there, even more I want Cody and Addie to be able to feel you in there. Apparently I was kind of stingy with the tummy touches the first time around. I’m pretty sure I felt you at dinner on Friday night, it was either in celebration of the Chinese food I had just eaten or in rebellion for the Chinese food I had just eaten. Or it was gas. Which is totally possible.
Look, your sister has a really strong personality, so I’m expecting the same from you, even if you are only the size of a mango. I am also expecting you to be a boy. I refer to you as a he, I call you Addie’s little brother…I’m fully expecting to see your twig and berries this Friday. And if I’m wrong and we end up seeing little hamburger buns in the ultrasound? Sorry about that. Guess we’ll have it on public record how keen or crappy my maternal intuition is.
I officially look pregnant. I haven’t barfed in over a week and half and I’ve only taken three Zofran in the last seven days. I also gained two pounds in the last four weeks. I’ve never done that while pregnant before!! Yay us!! I am so in love with you and I don’t even know what or who you are. I feel a little cheated that I never felt this way with your sister while she was still in me, but oh my, I am so in love with her. You officially have the coolest big sister ever. She’s currently in this phase where she wears the most ridiculous outfits ever, so ridiculous in fact that they are flawless in their mediocrity. We were at the circus last night when I realized she and a clown were wearing the exact same thing minus the pink hair and face paint (yeah, mean mom, I know.)
((ZOMG!! I THERE YOU WERE AGAIN! I TOTALLY FELT THAT ONE! I hope this doesn’t mean you’re a Steelers fan seeing as Cody just switched over to the game, we’ll have to have a nice long talk about Roethlisberger later on and how no son of mine will ever disrespect women. You know, assuming I’m right about you being a boy. Again, if you’re not? Sorry, we’ll have the talk about how nice girls don’t go for boys like Roethlisberger.))
You’ll like it here. We’re pretty fun people. I make sweet birthday cakes and Dad is amazing at making dragons out of Legos. We’re all really happy you’re on your way here. Promise I’ll do my best to get you here as safely as possible.
