34 weeks

Dear Ziggy,

34-weeks-belly

Woah. Look at you! This is from last week when I was 34 weeks pregnant and by now, I’m even bigger.

It has gotten to the point where I actually need to hang on to you when I turn over in bed so you don’t flop too hard to the side! You are a big boy already!

I am starting to have dreams about your birth which is exciting and scary at the same time. The other day we took a tour of the maternity ward at the hospital. We got to gaze at the fresh new babies in the nursery and it choked up both me and your daddy to think you will be a fresh new baby in that nursery very soon.

I am forever looking forward now, and I want to fast forward through the birth and have you home already! I’m pretty impatient, huh? Well, I’m not the only one. Daddy can’t wait for you to get here either. Just last night he made peanut butter and jelly on toast and looked at me and said “someday I’m gonna make this for our little boy” and he had a little tear in his eye.

We have so many plans for you and we are getting mushier by the minute. Please don’t be too late.

Love and kisses,
Mommy

Dear Ziggy,

crib

Daddy put together your crib last night and now it sits in the bedroom right next to the bed. In a few weeks you’ll be sleeping there and it’s just so hard to believe we’ve come this far.

We had to wait forever for this crib to arrive and we wouldn’t give up on it. We could’ve bought some inferior model but we wanted this particular one and were willing to wait however long it took for it to get here. Much like you, baby. And we have a good feeling you will be well worth the wait.

I hope you never give up on the things you really want. Because I never, ever gave up on you.

Sweetest dreams,
Mama

Shower

Dear Ziggy,

BABY

Your mama is a big pile of mush right now. Yesterday was your baby shower and it was just perfect. The food, the location, the people (of course) and the thoughtfulness were unparalleled. We couldn’t have asked for more. Everyone is beyond excited to meet you and they showered us with so many adorable and wonderful gifts for you.

I have a confession to make. I find myself sitting here getting emotional over onesies and pajama sets. I can’t help it! Everything is just so tiny and imagining you inside these itty bitty clothes chokes me up like crazy. There’s a huge bin of baby togs for me to wash up and tuck away into your little dresser drawers. There are 2 diaper cakes sitting here next to me. There’s a pile of goodies and toys and books and much much more. Now all I need is YOU!

There’s even a betting pool that has to do with your birth weight. Everybody got in on that one at the shower! There is so much anticipation in the air, people are saying you will arrive much sooner than your due date. I’m getting big and heavy and my feet swell up every day but I don’t mind. A few more weeks with you all to myself is worth it. Because when you do make your way into this world I’m going to have to share you and I know that’s going to be hard. Right now you’re all mine and I’m going to cherish every last day I get with you. I love you sweet baby.

Mama

Dear Ziggy,

Look at that face! I got to see you this week, and it was amazing. I now have a bunch of pictures of your beautiful face and this picture of your sweet profile.
In this shot, you are making the same exact expression your Daddy makes when he’s trying to get me to laugh. It made my day and my week when I saw this!

Faces aside, if you are anything like your Dad I will be so happy. He is one of the kindest, most wonderful people I know. I don’t think there is a single mean bone in his entire body. You are already the most fortunate little baby in the universe.

The Doctor told me you weigh 4 pounds and your head is already down and in position for delivery. You’re ready to go! I am hoping you’re just as excited to meet us as we are to meet you. I know it must be warm and cozy in there but there is so much out here for us to show you. I can’t wait to share everything with you and for the 3 of us to be a family. I’m going to try to start preparing my heart in the next few weeks because I just know it’s going to burst wide open when you get here.

I love you forever,
Mommy
