Happy Mother's Day to Me!

I was pretty adamant when I told Doc I didn't want any gifts for Mother's Day.  I know I'm carrying a baby which I guess technically makes me a mom, but I still don't feel like this year really counts.  I mean, I haven't even had to wipe a snotty nose yet! For once, he honored my request of no gifts, but I did wake up to a note from our baby girl.  (I think her Daddy may have helped her write it...)  I know sometimes notes like this can be cheesey, but I thought this particular note had some pretty funny parts.  Here's what it said... Dear Mom,

Happy Mother's Day!

This is your special day, so make sure that Dad and everyone else dotes on you today (and everyday for that matter).  Even thought I am "on the inside," I have been living inside of you for my ENTIRE life - and that makes you by far the most important person in my life.  So, Mom, this is your first Mother's Day (and I plan on trying to do a little more for you next year).

This has been a really exciting couple of weeks for us.  I guess I should apologize for hiding from that "ultra-sound" thing last week.  It took me a few minutes to figure out that the technician just wanted to ttake pictures and that she wasn't going to hurt me.  I tried to smile and wave and show you some of my cool tricks like "grab the foot." I am glad that you were able to see that I am a girl - I think girls are way cooler than boys.  I also look forward to having a great mother-daughter relationship.

I learned something new this week - if I run really, really, fast and then jump - you can feel me! I like it when you or Dad put your hand out so I can high-five it when I jump.  I don't think I jump as well as Lolli, but maybe some day.

This probably sounds weird, but everyday I feel like my room is getting smaller.  Can we do something about that?  I wanted to get a bed and a bean bag chair for my room, but frankly I don't know where I'd fit it now...  I hear you and Dad talking about moving - if we do, I want a bigger room.  Got it?

I want you know that I think I'm going to be a good sleeper.  I L-O-V-E taking naps, I think I take like 20 a day.  Listening to your heartbeat just makes me so peaceful that I drift away into happy dreams.

Mom, I can't wait to have you hold me in your arms and to look into your eyes.  I love you so much already.

I hope you have an awesome Mother's Day.

Love, Baby
