36 weeks: Welcome to the watermelon patch.

(Thanks Jake for the photo)
Oh little one,

I find myself day dreaming about you. What the color of your heels are. Pink, or a deeper purple? Will your lips have those faint lines dividing them in cross-sections, or will they just be plump and red? Will your hair stick up off your head, or will you be a baldy?

I can't believe it was thanksgiving, and I felt your little feathery movements for the first time. How small you must have been! Almost transparent.

I think your nose bridge will be flatter than Lills and your forehead will be too. At least that's what I get from the ultra sounds.

I think your fingernails will be long (unless you come early). I think you'll start smacking your lips and tongue within 10 minutes of birth. Ready to eat. You'll do that shaky newborn thing while they weigh you like you're summoning the masses with your arms and legs. You'll hate your first sponge bath.

Or maybe you won't?

We really don't know. But I want to know everything now. What does your beautiful face look like? Who will you remind me of? I can't wait to see you.

Until then.

Take it easy.

Aww...

I had an u/s yesterday and I was just thinking about what he would look like. I think his cheeks will be smaller than Abby's, but it looks like he may have a big nose. :) Apparently he is 7lbs 3oz already.

I can't wait to see your beautiful girl!! (well...pics at least).
