30 weeks

Dear Baby,
I can't believe how fast this time is going by with you.
Before we even know it you'll be here and we'll go from being a family of three to a family of four.
I got Finley a baby doll this week so he can practice holding and feeding it like he'll soon be helping me do with you.
He can't wait to hold you.
"Hold baby brudder." he said after meeting Broderick
"Yes Finn," I told him "You can hold your baby brother."
And he beamed.
We think we have your name figured out,
and I'm more then a little excited about it.
Daddy talks to you at night and you kick and squirm like you know it's him.
We all are looking so forward to meeting little you.
Stay cozy and warm a bit while longer.
Love and belly pats sweet little man.

Dear baby boy,
You're the size of a cabbage and almost 3 lbs.
We can see you physically moving and kicking and hiccuping.
11 at night is your most favorite time to show off your new tricks.
Finn is enamored with you as always,
and we talk about your arrival daily.
Daddy and I have three names we're choosing between but we're almost sure we know what you will be called.
I love you always.

7 months

and oh do I feel it. 
You're getting so big and strong, 
and oh how you like to kick me. 
Sleeping at night it starting to be a fight between us, 
whether or not I can be fully asleep before you begin your fully awake time. 
2-4 in the morning seems to be when you think daylight is. 
I have a feeling I need to save up as much sleep as I can now before you make your appearance.
We have about 12 weeks left like this you and me. 
12 weeks. 
Makes me so scared and excited all in one. 
I can't wait to see your little nose in person.
I can't wait to introduce you to your amazing big brother Finley.  
I can't wait for your daddy to hold you,
and truth be told, I can't wait to be able to bend over again. 
But I can wait, and we will. 
Mama's doing everything in her power to listen to her body
and make sure you stay in here until your full term. 
I love you so much little man and we're so excited to meet you. 
Hugs and love.

26 weeks

Dear baby boy, 
I made your daddy stop on our trip to Christmas so I could take belly pictures here. 
Isn't it lovely? 
I tried to include your big brother, but he was so excited to be out of the car 
that all he did was run. 
Everyone was so excited to find out about you, 
and you performed brilliantly, kicking and flipping for anyone 
who wanted to feel you move. 
I have a feeling you're a bit of a show off.  

You're as big as a cucumber now and over 2 lbs.  
 I read on my pregnancy app that if your daddy was to listen closely he could
hear your heartbeat through my tummy, so obviously,we tried it this week. 
So far your Dad hasn't been able to, but 
Aunt April, Aunt Lyndsie, Aunt Anna and Aunt Emma all swear they 
My night sickness is back and we're living off cereal again, you and me. 
But it's okay. 
I've recently discovered brown sugar mini wheats and it's like a whole new world. 
14 weeks little man. 
 I love you to the moon and back.
