dear peanut

a little snapshot of you and me

hello there, little girl.  this has been a fun week.  your papa and i celebrated our sixth anniversary together.  AND, your papa's first fathers day.  it doesn't feel quite as real as actually having you here on the outside...but it counts, nonetheless.  we are so excited to meet you.

i made the first official purchase for your room.  and, because i am kinda nerdy...i made a design board for your room as well.  it is so much fun to collect little meaningful bits to display in your room.  pieces of everyone that will play a role in your life.  your grandma [ridley] and i even went shopping for fabric for your quilt.  we hope that this will be a cherished heirloom piece that will be a part of your life and the lives of others.

your papa and i also purchased some reading materials so we can begin to learn more about you.  it has been really fun.  we have each taken on a book and are reading interesting parts to each other.  we know that it will be more about God's grace and our obedience to Him than any words we read in these books, but we are enjoying learning more about this new chapter of life.

you are definitely growing and moving around.  i am feeling your little swooshes more and more.  you like to have little somersault parties at nighttime.  that is an especially fun time for me.  you are in our prayers and thoughts.  your whole family loves you, sweet one.

all our love to you, little peanut.

love, your mama + your papa
