Dear Peanut - v.10

Dear Peanut,

You have now been a part of me for 25 weeks, and you will continue to be a part of me for the rest of my life. I feel you every day now, and each little movement is a pleasant reminder of you. 

A few weeks ago I felt like a bad mom because I hadn't felt you yet. My doctor and every book told me that it would feel like small flutters or gas bubbles, and that so frustrated me...how in the world was I supposed to know when it was you? But it seems that all of a sudden I am so aware of you and always know when it's you. I already love feeling you kick and squirm, I can't wait to see you do it for the rest of your life.


This week you're about the size of an eggplant and weigh about a pound and a half, AND you're putting on some baby fat...Mommy's favorite. Can't wait to see those chubby cheeks.


Love you, 
Momma
