Dear Baby: 28 Weeks

Dear Elijah,

Happy third trimester!!!  Here we are, in our final stretch of this pregnancy, and I couldn't be more excited about it.  I feel so lucky to have had such a healthy pregnancy so far and pray that it continues for the next 12 weeks.  I can't believe that we are 2/3 of the way through- time really has flown by.

This week you are size of an Eggplant!  You weigh about 2 1/4 lbs and are about 15 inches tall.  Can you believe that you'll be tripling that weight in the next 12 weeks?  You have so much baby chunk to put on!  I can't wait to see those chubby little cheeks.

Today, as I was folding some of your clothes, I couldn't help but sit down in the rocking chair in your room and think about all the time we'll spend in there together.  The images that floated through my mind brought tears to my eyes.  I just can't wait to meet you, my sweet boy.  We're having so much fun preparing for you but I know the "after you're here" part will be so much better!

Your daddy and I talked a lot about dreams for raising you tonight over dinner.  We also talked about some of our fears.  We want you to know that even if we make mistakes (which we will), we promise we will always try our very best and try to raise you know and follow the Lord.  We love you so much Elijah!  Only 82 (ish) days until we meet you!

Your Mama
