29 weeks!

Baby girl, I can't wait to meet you! I love actually watching you move around and feeling you wiggle and squirm and kick. When your Daddy prays over you at night, you've responded every time by kicking and squirming.

You really did kick Daddy in the face! He was talking to you and you got him right in the nose. 
Tonight we went to our second week of our Tiny Toes birth class and it was so great. We got to tour the hospital and see where this thing is going to happen. We also got to take a good look at our expectations for labor and delivery and when push came to shove, ultimately, all I really care about are things about our little baby getting the best possible start she can have. I can be flexible on most of the points of the process, but those first few moments of her new life are the most important to me.

We also were given the homework of choosing a song to sing to her every day for the rest of our pregnancy and we chose "Jesus Loves Me", the Jennifer Knapp version. She'll recognize it after she's born, and we'll keep singing it to her. After all, that's the main, basic thing we want her to know in her life...that she is loved by Jesus and it is really not more complicated than that.

Baby girl, we love you! Jesus loves you! And right now He is taking such good care of you and we are so thankful that He chose us to help take care of you too. We can't wait to get to know you, to help you know in the flesh, that you are precious and you are loved.

Love, Mom and Dad
