Dear Baby Fox (26 weeks)

26 Weeks

Dear Baby Fox,
  Your daddy and I took a tour of the birthplace at our hospital this morning. It's becoming so much more real, that in just about 14 more weeks, we'll be meeting you for the first time. I won't lie...when we toured the delivery room, every ounce of me wanted to just jump in that bed and get things rolling!! Rest assured, I refrained. I've been a little stressed because I want to make our home all ready for you. Some people refer to it as the "nesting" stage of pregnancy. It's just that with every step, I get more and more excited about the fact that we'll be bringing you home for good. What a sweet day that will be.
  Once again I've been reminded how blessed we are, that God would allow us to discover you and that we'd be lucky enough to watch you grow into a healthy baby boy. This is not something we take for granted. I pray every day God would continue to bless and keep you and that I would never complain or forget how much of a gift you are.
  Next weekend is your Aunt Kortney's wedding. I apologize in advance if you get pushed around too much while your mama shows off her goofy dance moves. One day I'll have to take you out on the dance floor and teach you a thing or two. Don't be embarrassed, and if you are, don't let me know!
  Happy growing, sweet babe! I love you!
All my heart, Mama
