Dear Peanut - v.8

Dear Peanut,

Today begins my 23rd week of carrying you. I can't believe you've been with me that long. 

You are now the size of a papaya, more than 11 inches long and weighing over a pound. You really made your presence known this past week. My stomach seemed to grow overnight, and last night you kept me awake by doing lots of little somersaults. I still don't feel you regularly, but when I do, it feels like lots of little butterfly flutters. You're already giving me the butterflies little boy.

My baby books say that in the next four weeks your weight should double. Keep growing, baby boy. The bigger you get, the quicker you get here. 

Love you,
