Dear Little Arrow,
Congratulations! We’re nearly halfway to your due date. I can’t believe that in a few short days we’ll find out if you’re a boy or girl. Either way, your daddy and I love you so very much and can’t wait to meet you. I might have already started shopping for a few outfits (and shoes) for you–don’t tell dad.
We had an appointment with our midwife last week and she asked if I had felt you move yet. I was told that because of the placement of the placenta it might take a little longer. I hadn’t felt much up until then, but in the last few days you have been moving up a storm. You seem to enjoy early morning and late night dance parties. I love it.
You were so good while we were in Taiwan! I experienced little morning sickness (I mostly blame car sickness and seasickness for any feelings of malaise) and really enjoyed our time there. I was worried about the change of scenery and food for you, but you seemed to enjoy everything and didn’t cause any trouble. I like you already.
In three short days we find out whether you’re a little girl or boy. Your dad and I have been kicking around a few names for you but we probably won’t settle on one until we see you face-to-face. We want to make sure that the name fits you.
We can’t wait to see your cute little profile on the ultrasound. Until then, sweet one.
