First Appointment

Our first appointment is this Friday, itty-bitty! So far, we have only been going off of our own calculations so we can't wait to see what the Dr. says. Daddy is able to go to this appointment and we're crossing our fingers that we will be able to get a sneak peak from an ultrasound. We aren't set on a Dr. yet, but hopefully this one will be successful.

We love you.

*This isn't you just yet.. Momma is bloated

Dear Baby P,

Your daddy and I found out about you a week ago and we could honestly not be more excited and happy. There are only 3 people who know about you right now and we are going to keep it that way for just a little longer. I know your grandparents will love you almost as quickly as we have fallen for you, your aunts, uncles, and numerous cousins too. I've heard it said that once a parent holds their baby in their arms, the amount of love that swells in their hearts is overwhelming. It's something, I've been told, that we can't imagine it until we experience it. For us, it's not that hard to believe. Though we haven't met, we love you already. I know that our love for you can only grow from here.

Momma & Daddy
