Hello little baby! We are past the 1/2 way mark & you are as tall as a banana. Last week your dad & I found out that you are a girl, just in time for your dad's birthday -- he's so pleased. We're both incredibly excited & your mother has become one of those ooohing and ahhhing women when confronted with tiny baby girl clothes. It's almost pathetic, but you'll be well dressed!
This week one of your mom's best friends had her baby -- you two will get to know each other very well once you make your debut & you'll be just about 20 weeks apart! I just met him today & I know you'll like him too.
One thing I would like to ask is for you to give me a good kick so that I can stop worrying. I'm sure that I have felt you moving around & assumed those little bubbles were just gas, but one good jab with a strong little leg would put my mind at ease. I know not everyone feels their baby at this point, but if I read one more article about how my 21 week old baby should be kicking me all night & waking me up, I just might cry. I'm glad that we know you are healthy -- we saw you moving all around during the ultrasound, giving us quite a little show -- but I want to feel it. I know you'll do it only when you're good and ready, but sooner than later would be fabulous.
I love feeling the outside of my belly & being able to tell where you are hanging out, and I love this little bump that doesn't fit in my pants/shirts anymore. I even love my new red stretchmarks.
You are more than 1/2 way ready & we can't wait to meet you.
