We just found out that you are going to be here in just a few short months...well nine to be exact. What a blessing you already are to us. Your older brother is Edward and he turned 22 months on the 22nd of January which happened to be the day that we found out you were on the way. I took the first test on January 20th 2009, (Inauguration Day) and it came back very faintly positive...so I waited a couple more and we got a definite positive.
Your Daddy beamed and smiled really big the morning we found out. He is already so very proud of you. I looked on the Chinese calender and it says you are going to be a boy...guess we'll find out soon enough. I can be a little superstitious sometimes. Regardless, we are sooo excited for you to be a part of our family. Your expected date of delivery is October 3rd, 2009.
Edward is already super excited to have a little sibling or "baby." He loves to pat and kiss my belly. He also loves listening to you already. I can't wait until he is able to feel you move around and jump. You will love your big brother Edward. He is so much fun and definitely ready for a baby of his own.
Now its time to start working on the whole potty training phase and learning to sleep in a big boy bed. We probably have a few more months before we will really start to try either.
Grandma and Grandpa accidentally found out about you before we were planning on telling. Grandma came over to our house and needed to use the computer. I forgot that I'd been looking at a pregnancy calender with week to week development...oh well. I am thankful that they both know and now they can start praying for you. Both were so happy and excited about the news. You would have thought that this was the first grandchild. ;)
I love you and can't wait to start feeling you in just a couple months. I'm also praying for you everyday and night. May you be safe and warm.
Much love, Your Mother
