Week 6!

Dear little Jelly Bean,
You have been in my belly for six whole weeks as of yesterday and roughly the size of a jelly belly. I have been so excited! The rule with teeny little jelly bean babies is you are supposed to keep them a secret until they are at least gumball sized, but I couldn't help myself. I told every coworker, friend, family member and stranger that had a spare ten seconds to hear my news. I went to the doctor for the first time today with Gramma Stinky. When the nurse told us your due date we both teared up a little. Your birthday is going to be March 21st.

Week 4!

Jul.17th. Dear Baby,
We have been waiting for you for so long. You are teensy tiny right now. A floating little poppy seed inside my body. I found out about you at about 12pm today. I was overwhelmed with joy and excitement. I never expected to see those two red lines appear confirming your tiny existence. I called your aunts and your uncle and your Grandma Stinky (that nick name was created by your big cousin, Noah by the way) immediately. Your daddy is a Marine and away all month for training and didn't have his phone on him all day. I told him about you by sending him a picture of your positive tests. I wish I could have been there to see the look on his face. He finally called me at nine pm. He is so happy and excited to hear about you. He told me that he felt electric jolts running through his body and that he'd be awake all night tonight daydreaming about you.
