Hi there lady love.
Forgive me but this post will be rather short and I’m omitting a belly shot because I’ve been sick as a dog all week. You’re getting awfully big – you’re the length of a english hothouse cucumber. You’ve also been a lot more active. It used to be I’d feel you mostly first thing in the morning and around bedtime but now I can sense you moving around all day long. And, I feel simultaneous kicks/jabs at the top of my belly as well as down by my pelvis which really proves how long you actually are.
Despite being terribly sick, it’s been a bit of a crazy week (it’s the week before Christmas festivities begin after all). I’m proud to say I did a good of getting a head start on all of my holiday duties but even so, there’s always last minute tasks that pop up. Because of finals, your dad didn’t have much of an opportunity to shop early so he’s been battling the crowds the past few days. Don’t ask me why, but he actually enjoys shopping at this time of year.
I apologize because this post is incredibly dull. I’m pretty sure no one is reading it because frankly, I’m bored to death writing it. I assure you I’ll write more later this week – and it will include all sorts of exciting updates on our family time in Big Bear, Christmas traditions, and a laundry list of your “first” Christmas presies. Even though you’re still in my belly, something tells me that you made out like a bandit this year!
Loving you always, little girl.
