Letters to my baby!

Today is December 4th

Hey Little Man! So after we got those cute pictures of you, things started to change for Mommy. At Mommy's doctor appointments they were checking my blood pressure and little by little my blood pressure was starting to rise. Mommy could tell there was something going on because she was having some swelling. Mommy's blood pressure was getting to high and they needed me to go on bed rest so that I would lay down and help you stay in my tummy as long as we could! Mommy was put on bed rest on October 22nd, two days after our last baby shower. We found out that if I laid on my left side you would be the safest! This was a little boring and at times my hip would hurt, but Mommy was going to do what she could to help you stay in her tummy and grow!

I can't believe how big you have gotten already!

We love you so much,

Letters to my baby!

Today is December 7th

    Hey little man! You are taking a nap right now so I wanted to quickly fill you in on the wonderful parties everyone threw for you before you were here! While Mommy was pregnant with you, we were fortunate enough to have three baby showers thrown for us! You Honey and Aunts Katy and Megan threw the first one at Honey's house.

This is the diaper cake that they made you! You used every one of those diapers! :) They all worked really hard on making goodies for everyone to eat including cute monkey cupcakes and lion cookies!

We then played games, like which candy bar is in the diaper :), and opened great presents for you to use!

     The second baby shower was at your Granny's house! She has ordered a really cute cake from The Cake Lady near her house. I loved this cake! Your room is decorated in a jungle theme and this cake was perfect to match it!
This was also a really fun shower full of games, great friends and family, and wonderful gifts for you and Mommy! Your Aunt Jackie went with your Granny to pick up decorations and she found all this stuff for Mommy to where during the shower, here is a very swollen Mommy in her get up!

    Our last shower was at Mommy's work. All of the teachers that teach third grade with Mommy threw us a shower! They worked so hard and did such a great job! They made lasagna, one of Mommy's favorites, with salad and garlic bread. One of the ladies husbands made to bread by hand just for the shower and it was delicious! They also had a very cute cake made! Mommy was so touched by everything that was given to us and how hard everyone worked to make this a special time for us! A friend of Mommy's had gone to the store everyday over the summer to save up wipes for you until she had 52 boxes! 52 BOXES!! I could not believe it! That was so sweet! Your closet it full of wipes right now! :)

There was a lot of people excited for you and they have all loved meeting you now that you are here! 

Love you so much,

Letters to my baby!

Today is December 3rd

Hey Little Man! I am a little behind on updating you on what all has gone on! A LOT has changed since I updated you last, as I am actually watching you sleep next to me right now!

Well, everything was going pretty well. Mommy was going to the doctor to watch you and make sure you were growing and that Mommy was healthy. When Mommy went back to work her blood pressure started going up so the doctors were watching us closely.
When I was 29 weeks pregnant with you I had another doctors appointment. At this appointment you decided to lay kind of funny which made you seem big so the doctors wanted to take a few pictures of you to make sure you weren't growing to fast! Luckily everything was just fine and they guessed that you weighed about 4 pounds then. I was happy because Daddy was able to barely get there in time to get some great pictures of you! Here you are at 29 weeks in Mommy's tummy.

Your Aunts and Grandparents were really excited to get these surprise pictures of you!

A few weeks later Mommy and Daddy went to get 3D pictures of you taken. These are pictures that show more details about what you will look like! It was so neat to see. Daddy had also gotten a new phone that would take video so he took video's of us seeing you and we also got to take a dvd home of you moving around.

It took a little while to get these pictures of you! You were not in the mood to have your picture taken this day, you would move your head, put your hands in front of your face, and even your feet!

Everyone was really excited to see these pictures of you! We could not wait to meet to and see your sweet face in person! Mommy and Daddy love you so much and will always cherish these special pictures of you!

We love you bunches,
