letters to our babe #2

Hi gorgeous little one,

The past few months (since I last wrote to you) have absolutely flown by. Time is moving faster than ever, and it's all because of you. We can't stop thinking about you, planning for you and dreaming of you. We talk about you every day, and I just can't wait until I get to hold you in my arms for the first time. Every time I see one of the little outfits I've purchased for you, my heart flutters and I just want to have you there with me already!

Your daddy and I are starting to get the house ready for you, and my oh my there is a lot to do! It's true when they say that a baby turns your life upside down ... although it will be turned upside down in the most amazing, delightful way. We have nearly cleared out your room and I have been shopping up a storm buying bits and pieces for the nursery. I can't wait to start setting it up and making the space just perfect for you. 

We had our 20 week scan last week and it was so exciting getting to see you in such fine detail, down to where your blood is flowing and all of the little bones that create your spine. You are perfect in every way and we are so lucky. 

You have been wonderful to me so far, although you are stealing all of my energy and making your mama so very tired. Today I got to work bright and early in the morning and wondered how I could possibly make it through the next hour without a nap, let alone a full day! You're worth it though - you can take all of my energy as long as you keep growing strong and healthy my love.

I don't know if you love or hate it when I hop into the bath, but you always make your presence known by kicking me continually! I love knowing you are safe and sound in there, feeling your little movements is very precious. Relaxing in the bath is one of my absolute favourite things to do, I can let my imagination run wild, dreaming of all the things we will get up to together - it's so much fun. 

Love you to the moon and back darling,

Mummy xxx
