Dear Baby: 20 weeks

Slugs & snails & puppy-dogs' tails!!! AHHH!!! When the ultrasound tech just blurted out "ummm, it's a boy!" I almost lost it, it was a mixture of wanting to cry happy tears & wanting to laugh. I'll blame my hormones but I was so excited to find out & just couldn't believe it! I've had a hard time keeping a smile off my face since & Creed has been the same way. I keep wanting to stop strangers to tell them, like they would really care - ha! We are going to have a son....I'm going to be a mama & Creed's going to be a papa. It's still sinking in but this ride has been amazing so far! Looking forward to 20 more healthy weeks before we get to meet this little man!! 

dear baby,
YOU'RE A BOY!!!!! Our sweet boy & we are so crazy thrilled!! I'm not sure it's fully sunk in yet, but seeing your sweet face & getting to see you kick your little feet yesterday during our ultrasound will forever be ingrained in my memories. I've wanted to scream it from the mountain tops since finding out & have been daydreaming about what you will look like & what your personality will be like. I'm hoping you will get the patience, positivity & sense of adventure of your dad & also his intelligence (he's a smart fellow, as you'll find out). You're apparently a big boy already, measuring a week ahead & you already weigh almost a pound!! This is probably why I've been feeling your strong kicks & rolls more lately. You even gave two hard enough kicks last night that your papa was able to feel them - he's already planning on teaching you ju jitsu, so get ready, little fighter. We are half-way through, blueberry, we can't wait to get to hold you in our arms. We love you more than words, sweet little man. xo.

I can't believe we are already at 20 weeks! Time is just flying by, which also means we only have 20 or so weeks left. This used to feel like a long time to me but now all I can think about is how getting to meet our little one is just around the corner!! If you follow me on instagram (username: meghanp) then you have already seen my little weekly bump updates, but I figured I would post them here, too. I love watching the bump grow. I also think it's funny, looking back, that I thought that 14 week bump was SOOO huge! I'm interested to see how I'll feel about the 20 week bump in the end...ha! I plan on making a little bump book as a keepsake with all the photos...

Today we had a very important appointment! We got to see our little blueberry again (we haven't had an ultrasound since 7 weeks in the very beginning). We have some BIG news (boy or girl) that I will share soon, but I just want to make sure I have to the chance to let all our friends & family know first!

With that said, getting to see our little bean today is definitely going on my list of happiest moments in my life (I can't even fathom how it will feel to hold baby in my arms!!). I have looked at tons of other people's ultrasound photos of their sweet babies & honestly, they always just looked like little aliens to me...but seeing my blueberry's profile photo was so different. It may just look like a blob to others, but that little face is mine, it looks so familiar, like I've always known it. I am just ecstatic!! I can't quit smiling. I will post more about it soon!!!!

Happy Monday!!! xoxo. Meghan
