Dear Baby Samuel,
36 weeks big guy. We are almost there.
I want to take the time to tell you how much I have enjoyed growing you inside of me. Did I complain time to time? Yes. It's harder than you think growing a human. Your future wife will attest to that some day I am sure. Although it has been getting harder and hard there have always been things that are getting more and more enjoyable along the way.
I got to see you again on the ultrasound and this time you were very entertaining. You had your little hands up over your face, you pulled your knees up and down, and I even saw you yawn. I couldn't believe I saw you open and close your little mouth like that. It was amazing.
I also get to feel you more and when I rub my tummy you wiggle around. Since your last ultrasound you have been head down. I really liked learning that day how you were positioned inside me. My tummy has looked bigger on the right side for some time now and well... that's because you are over there! The nurse had to put the wand way over on my side to get you on the ultrasound, but you are a good boy already in position like you should be.
Your grandma Suzanne and aunt Ashley threw you and I a babyshower! They really love you already. The shower was honestly better than I could have ever imagined it! They did a wonderful job making the day special for us. Lots of people came, they shared advice, and blessed us with so many wonderful gifts. I feel like I'm even more prepared for your arrival now.
I'm praying for you son. I'm praying for our delivery too! You are doing everything right inside my womb and I'm going to do my best to help you have a great entry into the world on your birthday. I can't wait to see your little body and kiss your face.
This letter is a little random, but let's just blame it on my hormones ok? Anyways, I want to leave you with some advice.
