Mommy Feels You!

My Dearest Child,

I'm so excited that I can finally feel your movements. I still haven't really felt kicks or punches yet, but it's still super early for that. Mommy's waiting so anxiously, though! But I can feel you moving around in your temporary home and it's just so exciting. It's one of those more intimate moments between Mom and Baby that I reserved myself to thinking I would never experience. To be here with you now, knowing you are growing, dancing, moving around, it's just amazing. 

Now, my child, with that said...I beg you to play nice with me. These hormone changes? They're not fun. Your Daddy tells you all the time to play nice with me. I've been more nauseous in the past few weeks than I had been up to that point. But I don't blame you, I blame the hormones of pregnancy. Mommy just likes to tease. You'll get used to that! 

Only a few weeks left until I can see you again and hopefully, you'll cooperate so I can know if you are on Team Pink or Team Blue. I'm so nervous and excited about that. We have some names chosen, but once we find out what team you play for, we'll really look at those names and choose one that is perfect for you. I can't wait! 

Until my next letter, be nice, don't beat me up too much, but I can't wait to feel your kicks and punches, sweet child of mine!

My little Love Bug

Dear Little Bean,

It's been a little while since I've had a chance to sit down and write to you. I guess the difference is that now, I can talk to you. Although you can't really hear me yet, I still talk to you all the time. It still doesn't feel real to me. I sometimes question whether or not you are really living inside, in your comfortable temporary home. I'm so glad God chose you for me. Your dad an I are already planning for you. We started cleaning yesterday after being snowed in for the third time this winter. We are going to rearrange the apartment to better meet your needs when you arrive. I'm so excited about getting to know you!!

With Valentine's Day coming up, I've been calling you my "Love Bug." But don't worry, you're still Little Bean (Beanette). I can't wait to find out which team you are on, pink or blue. I don't have too many more weeks to wait, time sure is going by quickly! 

Now, let me tell you a few reasons why I already love you. I love you because:
  • You are my first Love Bug.
  • You came as the prize for a long journey through faith and perseverance.
  • You are a child of God.
  • You are precious and beautiful.
  • You are  part of me.
Oh, Little Bean, I'm waiting ever so patiently to meet you face to face. Until then, I love you more and more each day. I'm looking forward to knowing if you are a girl or a boy and getting to see you again on an ultrasound. Only 5 more weeks until that day. I'll try to wait patiently...
