Dear Little Squirt
Today is your due date, it is also exactly 8 months from when we found out we were expecting you.
Thank you for being so kind to me for most of the pregnancy. I think overall I was pretty lucky with all that changed about me, my life and my body physically.
You have no idea how much your dad and I look forward to meeting you. We are so curious as to whom you will look like and how you will change our lives.
We have worked hard to create a home for you and set up your bedroom the way we hope you will like.
We promise to protect you and teach you as much as we can. The world can be a challenge at times but know that your dad and I are ALWAYS going to love you and support you!
Thanks for choosing us to be your parents! We loved you the moment we knew you were on your way to us.
Mom and Dad
In the first few weeks of being publicly pregnant the most common question I’ve been asked is:
What are you having? Do you know if it’s a boy or girl?
I guess that’s the most intriguing thing people want to know. Well first of all I am only 16 weeks so it’s a little soon to tell. Second of all, *pt* and I are going to wait until the baby’s birthday to find out if it’s a boy or girl.
I think I’ve always felt this way about someday having a baby and now that we are here in the present and it’s all happening, I really want to be surprised!
There’s a bit of mixed responses when I tell people we are going to wait to find out the sex of the baby. Some people are concerned as to how we will prepare. I think there are enough neutral colors and items that we need to prep for this baby that I think we’ll be just fine! Thanks for the concern though 🙂
Since our honeymoon and maybe even a little bit before we started liking “turtles”. Coincidentally my brother and sister-in-law started using the name “Squirt” to refer to the baby. (Squirt the Turtle from Finding Nemo).
I’m not sure how we will incorporate turtle’s into the nursery decor but I bet there will be a few. More to come on that…
