Dear Baby #2 (34 weeks, 4 days)

(30 weeks, 2 days)

Dear Baby #2,

My poor neglected child... just kidding you aren't truely neglected.  I can't believe this is only my 4th letter to you and we are already well into the third trimester (slacker mom).  Though the quantity of letters may not be as high as it was with your sister you have to know that I think about you all day long.  I feel every single one of your punches and kicks as if you are already fighting with your sister for my attention.  I think finding the balance of giving you both the attention you deserve is going to be hard.  I find it a little intimidating.  I love your sister so much and I already love you so much even though we haven't officially met yet.

Yesterday your dad and I took a little time to focus just on you.  We left your sister at home with a babysitter and went to get a 3D/4D ultrasound so we could see your cute little face.  You were very sleepy with your arm up and the umbilical cord covering part of your face but we managed to get you to move around enough to get a really great view of your face.  Boy of boy you are just the most handsome little baby in the whole wide world!  It seems that you are already a deep sleeper.  All the tapping and nudging we did to try to move you around didn't disturb your sleeping at all.  Perhaps all the abuse you are taking from your sister is conditioning you to be a good sleeper... fingers crossed!!  Your dad and I keep looking at the photos and commenting on how absolutely adorable you are.  It  was so special to see you on yesterday and spend time focusing on just you.  Seeing your cute squishy little face makes me even more excited to meet you.  I just can't wait!!!

Life is going to get pretty crazy as we approach your due date.  Your sister and I are moving up with your Grammy and PaPa on August 7th and you will be born at the same hospital that your uncles were born in.  Your dad and I are in the process of buying a house and if everything keeps going well we will close on August 12 exactly one week before your due date.  The plan is to move into the house sometime within a week after you are born.  It all sounds a little crazy doesn't it?  I am trying not to think too much about it and just take one week at a time so that I don't get too overwhelmed.  All the craziness is going to be so worth it though.  The house has the most incredible playroom that your sister is going to love.  We will be spending a lot of time in there.  Lucky you will get to grow up with so much more room to run and play.  I know your sister is getting a little tired of the small apartment we are living in now.

Time is moving so quickly and you are going to be here before we know little one.  I have to go get an ultrasound tomorrow to check on your weight because I have been measuring small.  I am confident that you are growing right on schedule but it will be nice to know for sure.  Keep fattening up in there my love!  We are all anxiously awaiting your arrival!
