A Letter to Alynne


We found out a week and a half ago that it was you we are having, and we couldn't be more excited.  It's crazy how much you can love someone you've never met, and I can't even begin to imagine how much more we'll love you once you're in our arms! We stare at your ultrasound pictures daily and try to guess what color eyes you'll have! Mami and Papi can't wait for you to be here! 

Right now I am really enjoying being pregnant.  You are so active, and I love feeling all of your kicks and movements.  Yesterday morning you kicked so hard that it woke me up! I of course wanted your papi to feel it too, but you always quit kicking when I tell him to feel! But, the times when he does get to feel you, it brings so much joy to us both.  Papi talks to you everyday, prays over you, and even sings to you! You are already so loved.

We are currently trying to get our apartment ready for your arrival and quickly realizing how short 9 months is!  I have so many ideas to decorate your "nook" and your daddy's graciously going along with it all! Papi and Uncle Levi spent an entire Saturday afternoon trying to put a shelf up in our room for you with no avail (thanks to our mysterious studless walls). Slowly but surely it will all come together!

We're taking a trip to Oklahoma this weekend.  It's the last time I will see everyone without you in my arms! I can't wait for you to experience Oklahoma, and I hope you love it as much as I do. =] 

There are so many people who love you so much already.  You are one special little girl! We are counting down the days until we meet you!
