Dear Baby

Dear Baby,

Please stay inside of me 'til close to my due date, but not past my due date. If you don't come by September 24th, the doctors are going to take you out, and I don't want that to happen. I would like you to come out all on your own in an amazing non-medicated, natural birth kind of way. September 16th would be a good day. That is your Grampy's birthday, and even though we don't know what we are going to name you yet, we think your middle name is going to be David after your Grampy. If you came on his birthday that would be awesome, and I think it would make everybody happy. My doctor told me today that she will start encouraging you to come out at 37 weeks. That is in just 4 weeks! (But you do have until Sept. 24 to choose to make your debut on your own.) I can hardly believe you will be here soon, but I am so excited to meet you and I know you have lots of family members that are excited to meet you too.

P.S.-Please have a slightly smaller head than your older brother, that will make things much easier for both of us during labor and delivery.

I think this letter is very sweet!! I think Sept 16th would be a good date as well! I can't wait to see pictures of him! I know he will be a cutie just like his big brother!

I liked this letter in so many different ways, but at the time didn't comment, because it wasn't to me. Love you!

Your letter brought tears to my eyes. I hope Papa see it. I don't know how often he reads them. I usually have to tell him there is a new one to read. I don't know if he has ever posted a comment. I hope he does on this one. It is a very sweet letter. Love you. And see you soon.

I love your letter Kari. I'm even more excited because you wrote it two weeks ago whcih means only two more weeks until encouragement starts! AAAHHHHHHH! I'm so excited!

Thanks for all your nice comments, I am excited but starting to get really nervous about this whole having another baby thing, but I'm sure it will all go well, and I am lucky and have amazing support and family!
Mom- Papa has commented on posts before, so maybe he will this one too when he comes out of the woods.
