A pickle person

Dear Baby,

We've made it to 22 weeks now, a little past halfway. You're starting to take up most of the room and I'm starting to feel a little cramped :)

I wouldn't say that I have had any really strange cravings until last night. I pulled out a jar of pickles and a tray of chocolate cookies. I'd eat a slice of pickle, and then a bite of cookie. It sounds gross I know. But baby, I was in heaven.

There are a million things you HATE for me to eat. Like tacos, milk, yogurt (pretty much anything dairy related really). You don't like when I eat salad, or most kinds of chips or really anything greasy. It's getting hard to find things that you DO like to eat. So I'm sticking with my pickles and chocolate cookies okay?

Just the 3 of us

Dear Baby:

I am 21 weeks pregnant, and this is what you look like inside me. It has been a crazy few weeks as we have been focusing on your brothers. So this last weekend your daddy and me got to have a weekend getaway, and just enjoy you. We sat by the ocean, which baby you are going to love one day, and spent time together being quiet.

But the highlight of the weekend for me was the night that we laid in bed and listened to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. You responded by moving around all over the place. And your daddy got to feel you moving around. He smiled and would say "ooooh she's hyper". It was a really special moment we got to share, just focusing on you and your little life growing inside me.

Your daddy keeps wondering what life will be like with a little girl. I secretly think he's really excited about. He keeps thinking about your prom, and your wedding. He asks me about what girls like to do. He speculates that you will be a talker and will have to be tough with 2 older brothers.

It's so fun to think about what life will be like when you come. We are excited baby.

We love you baby,

Love mama
