hello, little miss.  i hope that all is well inside the bump.  i know that you are getting bigger and bigger and stronger and stronger.  you have been kicking up a storm!  i can see the light at the end of the tunnel.  a lovely, bright, sparkling light.

speaking of light...your tiny little chandelier lamp has arrived and been placed in your room.  it is small and a teeny bit glitzy.  perfect for twinkling and casting warm shadows on the wall during our late night feedings.  it is our new favorite.

guess what?  starbucks pumpkin spice lattes are officially on the menu now!  and that means that fall is on the horizon and october is right around the corner.  october means that you will be here soon.  i love the fall.  and now, i have another pretty big reason to like that time of year.  and while it is still warm outside, i know that we are getting close to sweaters and boots and hot chocolate and pumpkin pie and turkey.  it is so much fun to think about all the wonderful things that we will get to experience together.  you will be here for thanksgiving this year!  we will get to wheel you around in your stroller while the whole family shops for christmas gifts.  you will get to watch all of our christmas movie favorites with us.  you will have your own little ornament on the tree.  and that is just the beginning, sweet girl.  aren't we just going to have the funnest times?  i think so.

all our love to you, little peanut.

love, your mama + your papa
