You moved for Daddy

We're Pregnant!!!

…but that story is for another day and another post.  It's a long one.  Right now I have some thoughts for my sweet baby that I need to get down before I forget things.  In the meantime, thank you so much to everyone who has been there for us in any way at all.  Words cannot express how much we appreciate your prayers on our behalf during our struggle into parenthood. 

Dear Baby Boots,

We got to see you again a couple days ago.  The first time we got to see you we couldn't even tell where your head was going to be because it was so early.  You were only 7 weeks.  But we did get to see your heart beat.  Your beautiful little heartbeat beating away so strong.  But this time for your 9 week ultrasound, there you were!  You were so beautiful!  We got to see your head, and your arms, and your legs, and the umbilical cord, and of course your strong little heart beat.

This was you at 7 weeks, and again at 9 weeks.
When the picture first came up onto the monitor, I saw you move!!!  I couldn't believe it!  I looked over at your daddy and…nothing.  He didn't see it.  I was so sad that he missed it.  The whole time while the nurse was taking the pictures and measurements you were so still.  No movement at all.  I think you knew it wasn't time to move so that she could get all the pictures and measurements that she needed.  But still, daddy didn't get to see you move and I was so sad about that.  I wanted him to have seen what I saw.  But as soon as she was done taking the pictures of you, you gave us a show.  You started moving and wiggling your little arms and you just kept dancing for us.  I looked over and your daddy and he had the most happy, excited look on his face.  I was so happy!  So of course I started giggling and couldn't stop.  We were so excited to get to see you moving and happy like that.  And I was so excited that your daddy got so see you move.  You moved for Daddy!

Look how perfect you are!!!

We are so excited to meet you.  We've been looking at some ideas for your nursery this week.  We've got so much to do and I'm not sure how we're going to get it all done in the next 30 weeks.  But we'll manage and it will be the most perfect room for you.  I can't wait until it's done and I especially can't wait to show it to you!

We've waited so long for you my sweet Baby Boots.  You will be so loved in this life and forever.  We love you so much Baby!
