24 Weeks

Dear Baby,

I am sorry that I have been putting off writing on here for so long!
I can not believe how fast this pregnancy has gone! I always thought that pregnancy would drag on and on but really, it has been so fast and so wonderful. Besides the sickness early in my pregnancy, and the minor aches and pains I am feeling now (mainly in my lower back and ever stretching stomach) I have nothing to complain about.
The other night your dad and I were babysitting your 3 year old cousin Ella. When it was night time I got her dressed in her jammies, and had her pick out a few books for me to read to her. She went and sat in her bed and as I was getting ready to sit right next to her she looked at me and said,
"You're fat Emily."
I seriously laughed about that one for days.
I am getting big. My work pants are even snug when I leave the zipper down and do the rubber band trick, and my belly now catches all the food that does not make it to my mouth. It's awesome.
One of favorite things to do right now is lay down on my back with my head propped up and watch you kick away. It is so crazy that I can actually see my stomach move now when you kick it. Crazy I tell you!
We love you baby. I am so excited to see you and hold you!


  1. laying down and watching my belly jump has got to be my favorite activity. the other day i laid in bed and watched it move and couldn't believe it because some of the movements i didn't even feel. it was a site for sure. enjoy this second trimester, the third hasn't been bad for me, its just harder to breath and his kicks in my ribs are stronger and make me really sore. i cant wait to meet your boy!

  2. I loved watching my belly move, too. Like there's an alien about to burst out. My babies always got crazy when I lay down in the tub. It was fun. Like the only fun thing about pregnancy. Seriously.
