baby note

36 weeks 4 days

Hello sweet one,

Your daddy and brothers and I are looking forward to meeting you!  You are due in less than 4 weeks but you could be here any day...or in 5 weeks if you're following after your latest brother!  (We did think seriously, you were arriving last Tuesday though; glad you decide to stay and grow some more inside!)  You are active, really LOW and making my belly hurt...of course it could have been that I just ate way too much soup tonight!  Cravings with you have been lemony, diet coke randomly, a serious aversion to coffee for the first 5-6 months, cookies, tuna and french fries and now an aversion to fried fish.  Yep, sounds really healthy!  Well, fortunately, I have not been eating these things on a regular basis and have enjoyed yogurt, fruit, water, lemonade and hummus!  I'm thankful this pregnancy has been good with only the recommended weight gain and I've been active with still working (even now...but your mama is one tired lady!)  We have the changing table set up, clothes washed (including several even from your oldest brother) and will hopefully set up your crib (you're the 5th and getting the first new crib!) tomorrow.  I'm having a hard time sleeping now, but strangely not during the day...hmmm.  Your daddy and brothers are busy doing school and we're looking forward to meeting you!  We're still trying to figure out what you're name is- praying!

Miss Ruth is having a baby shower for me this Sunday! I'm quite excited. Little things for you sweet one. :)

Love you sweet boy and so thankful the Lord has chosen us to be your family!
Mama, Daddy and brothers
