We made quite a production out of finding out if the baby was a he or a she. We had the ultrasound tech write it down and put it into an envelope. We proceeded to a local bakery and told the decorator that inside the envelope was the sex of our child and to decorate and fill the cupcake with the appropriate color frosting. Taylor had an appointment immediately following our ultrasound, so I had to sit and wait for an hour and a half from the time we left to be able to go home and find out! The anticipation was killer, but it was so fun!! Her Grandma Barlow suggested that we call her cupcake from here on out and I must say, I quite like it.
Here she is!!!
Our Sweet Cupcake,
It was so wonderful to see your precious face and to see each part of your healthy, growing body. We love you so much already and can hardly wait to meet you. We already think you are so beautiful and you look so much like your big Brother Anson.
You are a mover and a shaker and it has been so fun feeling your kicks and wiggles. You sure love your older Brother's voice and especially his laugh--you always move around like crazy when you hear him. Your Brother is going to love you so much and if he understood that you were growing in Mommy's belly, he would be so excited. He'll make up for lost time when you get here with lots of hugs and kisses!
You have decided to set up shop right in Mommy's pelvis, which means lots of trips to the potty, back aches and difficulty bending over. Mommy is already very uncomfortable and you still have to cook in my belly for another 4 1/2 months and Mommy is still very nauseous. Honestly, I think all of these things are just your way of saying: I'm here!! You need to understand that Mommy will take on all of this and more if it means bringing you into this world healthy and strong. Mommy would do anything for you and every discomfort is more than worth it!
Keep growing, growing and growing! Love you sweet girl!
Daddy & Mommy
