I think it's pretty clear that baby girl grew between last week and this one. I saw the doctor today, and she's guessing that the baby is already weighing in at about 7 and 1/2 pounds. We are both healthy according to the doctor!
I have to say I'm feeling some mixed emotions about the end of this pregnancy. I'm so excited and anxious and ready to meet my baby, but I have also loved experiencing this part of her life that I haven't had to share. I've gotten to feel the little swirls and kicks and nudges and hiccups that no one else can experience. At the same time, I'm ready to have the weight of this baby in my arms instead of inside my abdomen. I'm ready for her to see her daddy and for him to experience life with her. I can't wait to see how they interact and build a relationship. Father daughter relationships can be so precious. I hope and pray that my two will have a special bond. I can't wait to see them giggle and play together. I can't wait to see how quickly he's wrapped around her little finger. I can't wait.
