To Bella

You are so active today! It’s not much different than normal, but I am enjoying it. At the same time, I am very anxious to meet you. You are almost 31 weeks, and 9 more weeks just feels like forever to me. I want to know what it is like to hold you in my arms. I want to touch your soft skin and see your beautiful face. I want to see your daddy hold you. I want to feel the love that fills my heart the first moment I hold you. It seems so close yet so far away. I already love you – I love feeling you and your gymnastic-like movements. I love reading and talking to you. I love thinking about how you will look and touching your tiny fingers and toes. I love imagining how you’ll look in all the adorable clothes I have for you. Some days the anticipation is so great, and today is one of those days. I hope the time goes by fast until we meet you, Bella.

Your Mommy

We are all so excited to meet sweet baby Bella. But, none as excited as you, I'm sure. You are going to be a great Momma!!

not sure if it's the visual of you holding bella.
or if it's cause i miss you so darn much.
or it it's remembering how amazing it was holding maja for the first time.
you will be an amazing momma.

Dear Bella baby -
Your Grammy is waiting to hold you too. I have a feeling you will not lack for anything important - especially love. . . and clothes :) I am trying to make the next 9 weeks pass more quickly by sewing and knitting things for you to use. Something else I can't wait to see is my little girl holding her little girl. I remember when she was a 4 year old and she "nursed" her baby doll. Now she'll have a real baby doll to share that bond with. See you soon, Isabella Grace!!

What a beautiful thing for her to read when she's a teenager... I'm amazed at how much my girls want me to talk about them and when they were born and before they were born... beautiful. She will be so beautiful. I can't wait to meet her!
