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.

  1. Aww yay! Congratulations on your boy! I definitely think you should tell strangers in the street if you feel like it - if someone did that to me, I'd smile and it would totally make my day!

  2. So excited for you! And surprised! I was convinced little baby was a girl! ;]

    I love these pictures and the sneaky black and white one on IG. You guys are the coolest!

    Ps. Are you still knitting baby shoes? I need to order a pair before (if. When. Whatever.) you close!

  8. Congrats! I remember how different it felt to think about having a "son" as opposed to a "baby." Somehow it felt more real. Enjoy the next few months. :)
