20 Weeks: We're Half Way There

Dear Baby A,

Yesterday Mommy and Daddy started our morning by dancing in the kitchen while I sang "Living on a Prayer," because we are just so excited about being halfway through our journey and that much closer to meeting you.  I wonder if you could hear me singing, "Take my hand, and we'll make it, I swear..."  Two things: one, it is not nice to swear, so please don't think Mommy meant it, and two, you will learn that Jon Bon Jovi is awesome!  Baby A, we have so much to teach you.  Did you know that Mommy and Daddy saw Bon Jovi live at Jazzfest this year with his favorite follower, your Aunt Sarah.  Mommy and Aunt Sarah spent a lot of time in college dancing to his music.  You'll think he's really old by the time you understand who he is, but you'll be able to say that you saw in person when you were in my belly.

Meet Baby A

Speaking of living in my belly, Baby A, I would love to start feeling you move around in there.  I know you are a rambunctious little one because when we saw you on the ultrasound you were quite literally doing flips.  Mommy and Daddy's friends would always talk about how magical it was to see their babies, but it wasn't until we got to see you that it all made sense.  It is so amazing to see what your life is like in there.  To watch you yawn and kick and stretch made us love you even more than we already did.  And we loved you a ton already. 

Hi Mommy and Daddy!

If there is one thing we want you to know each and every day, it is that you are loved.  And each and every day, we love you more than we did the day before.  That is not to say that there will not be times where we we are frustrated or disappointed or angry with you, but even in those times, or maybe even especially in those times  - we love you.  My parents told me they loved me every morning and every night, and I always felt the warmth and comfort of knowing that there was nothing I could do to destroy that love.  I hope we provide you with the same feeling of security in knowing that no matter what, you live in our hearts.

If I'm a girl, look out!  The shoe bills I might run up could rival Mommy's!

Have a wonderful 20th week, Baby A.  Tonight, you will be travelling to South Dakota to meet all Daddy's family.  They are so excited!!  And we are too!

Love, Mommy and Daddy
