Dearest Baby of mine,

God grant me the serenity to make it through the next few days until your arrival. Our doctor is driving me nuts. He keeps trying to convince mommy to force you to come out instead of just leaving you alone. He doesn't seem to know whether he's coming or going with us. One minute he's saying mommy's sugars are fine and the next minute he's trying to scare mommy about what can happen to babies of diabetic mommies. Poor man. He's got so many women to take care of before he retires at the end of the month...I think he's forgotten who is whom!

But don't you worry. Your mommy is going to make sure you don't come until you are ready and willing to arrive. So far you are just doing fine in there. Your little heartbeat is steady and you are moving for me regularly. Signs which tells me that things are going perfectly fine in there. Your last ultrasound (last week) showed mommy that things look good on the inside too. So you just come out when your ready...

But if mommy can make a request...how about you come out before Monday so I don't have to go back to this silly doctor again????? Think you can do that for your mommy?? LOL! I'm sure that if God wants you to arrive by Monday, then you will...and if He has it in His plans for you to bake longer...well, that is fine too. I just need a new dose of patience to deal with our doctor.

I love you now and forever!

Dearest baby of mine,

It's another day for a checkup. I was really hoping that you would make me miss this one with your arrival, but that's okay. Maybe our doctor will do something that will make me go into Labor today or tonight! Wouldn't that be nice?

You wiggle around and I know you are out of room...so why not come on out here and you can have all the room you want to stretch! There are eager arms waiting to hold you and hearts ready to love you. And the attention you will get...oh my. So many people wanting to see you and meet you. So why not go ahead and come out?

I really don't mind missing my appointment this evening if it means I'm in the process of seeing your beautiful face...

Love you always and forever...

It's another day closer to your arrival. You've been making your eminent arrival known through new aches and pains as my body adjusts to get ready for labor. That's okay by us...but today would be awfully convenient since your daddy is still home from work...

I know there is still about a week left until you are REALLY due, but coming early is perfectly fine, my loved one. We are SOOOO ready for you!

We decided that it might be wise to figure out a girl name for you...just in case you decide to surprise everyone by really being a little PRINCESS! So if you are a princess, you will be named Jaclyn Louise....and mommy through in some pink stuff JUST IN CASE... :)

Whether you are a Justin or a little Jaclyn we are just ready to welcome you with open arms!

Loving you now and forever,

Dear baby love...

It's getting to the point where every day I ask you (and God) if THIS will be the day you arrive. Part of that comes from just eager expectation and the other part from the fact that my feet are killing me! LOL! Mommy's poor feet don't even look like her own. They are so swollen they wrinkle at the toes and hurt...oh my how they ache. This is something mommy didn't experience when she was pregnant with your brother during the winter and an experience she hopes she can avoid next time around!

Mommy's friend Miss Jenn just had her baby boy today. You are going to be friends with him and his brother and sister as Mommy meets up with Miss Jenn every month. Oh what fun all you guys will have over the years. Your brother Seth is the oldest of the crew at 4 1/2...then comes Miss Jenn's Ophira (2) and Noam (1) and then little Ari (newborn). Yes sir, I think we will have fun getting together with our brood! Little Ari beat you out though...yep, he was supposed to wait a bit longer, but he decided to give his mommy a break...

I wouldn't be adverse to you doing the same thing for me, darling baby! LOL!

But I know that you will come out when it is time and not a moment sooner...

And so everyday I ask..."Will it be today?"

Love you always and forever,

Well baby, it's official...we are *full-term*!! That means that there is NO stopping us if you decide to come out. We are green-light for go! Of course it would be more "convenient" if you wait 2 more weeks for Mum-Mum...but please, don't let that stop you! LOL!

The weather is a bit cooler this week which makes your mommy sooo much more comfortable. Mommy doesn't like her fat feet from the swelling due to humidity. Yuck!

I seem to be getting bigger every day at this point. Shirts which fit the day before now show belly. I supposed that is because you are moving down...down...down...

Here is our Belly Pic:

From here on out, mommy is going to try to take weekly shots until you arrive and then will try to remember to take one the day you decide to make your grand entrance. It will be fun to look back on them later.

Stay healthy and strong and know there is a host of people just dying to make your acquaintance!

With love forever and always,

Dearest baby boy,

It is hard to believe but July is finally here! Only 1 month--or maybe less--until you get here! I've waited so long for this month to be here and now that it is here, it is almost hard to believe my pregnancy is almost over. And to think that you could be here in just maybe 2 or 3 weeks! That's no time! Of course, it would be more convenient for you to wait until my mom get's here in 3 weeks...LOL! But you just go ahead and come out when you are ready...but I'm warning you now that you will be receiving your eviction notice as soon as Mum-Mum gets here! And NO LATE ARRIVALS! LOL!

Your daddy FINALLY got out the baby stuff for me to go through. It's been packed away for 4 years, so I don't hardly remember what I even have! I need to sort and wash EVERYTHING since it's probably got that "packed away in storage" smell. And I have to clean up the bouncer, carseat and pack-n-play and stroller. And of course I have to clean out your brother's closet to make room for your things too. A lot of things to do between now and when you are supposed to arrive, so don't come too early, okay?

Your Mamaw made you the most adoreable cradle set. She special ordered the fabric just for you, love! Your brother thinks it's perfect!

Well, got a tons of things to do my darling little boy.

I love you always and forever,
