Hello Baby || Week 25-26

Dear Judson,

This pregnancy journey is moving along quite quickly.  It is so exciting to think that in a little over 3 months we will have you at home with us!  We love you so very much and have discovered in the last few weeks that you are just as much a squirmer as your brother was. :)  I have also noticed that you must love music, because during certain specials in church you will start thumping inside Mommy's tummy as if you are keeping beat with the singers!  You also seem to want to party when Mommy wants to sleep. :)

You are currently measuring at about 10-12 inches long and weigh 1.5 pounds.  Such a little guy, yet so very loved already.  The next 3 months are sure to go by quickly, as you will be shooting FIVE weddings with Daddy and Mommy.  We are excited to be busy, because that means the time will go by even more quickly and you will be in our arms.  Your big brother, Keegan is excited to meet you as well.  He loves other babies and if they are crying tries to console them with a toy.  You two are going to be the best of friends!

Just today, I had Daddy raise the crib for you and I put on fresh bedding and got it all ready for you.  I know we still have a ways to go, but seeing that crib ready for you puts a smile on my face.  I wonder what you will look like...if you will be born with dark hair like Keegan only to have it turn blonde, or if you will have any hair at all.  Will you have a birth mark?  Will you have any dimples?  One thing I do know is that you will be absolutely perfect and we will love you immensely!

I love you, baby Jud.


PS We love everything bagels, ice cream sandwiches, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and late night snacks of cereal :)  We also have a food aversion to  Chinese and Mexican...:/

Happy 2nd birthday, my big adventurer!

Dear Keegan,

How quickly the last two years have gone.  Seems like just yesterday, we were bringing all 7lbs, 11oz of you home from the hospital.  You made us first time parents, and you have filled our lives with so much joy; truly our cup runneth over.

Last night, was bittersweet as I tucked you in as a one year old for the last time.  Silly, I know, but as I prayed aloud with you and thanked God for giving you to us, I couldn't help but cry.  You make us so very happy and I can not imagine our lives without you.  I have not rocked you to sleep for some time, but last night for some reason you called me back into your room and climbed from your bed onto my lap where you laid your head on my shoulder.  My heart could have burst with love right then and there.  Your cake was sitting in the kitchen, waiting to be frosted, and the dishes were piled in the sink, yet all I wanted to do was savor that moment.  I sang you the song, I used to sing to you daily when you were a baby,

I love you, Keegan, oh yes, I do.
I love you, Keegan, and I'll be true.
When you're not with me, I'm blue.
Oh, Keegan, I love you.

In that moment, I was taking a trip down memory lane and remembering the countless nights of waking up with you and rocking and singing you back to sleep.  The days when you were content just to lay in my arms and do absolutely nothing else.  The days when I could kiss you all over your face and you didn't mind at all.  Oh, Keegan, I love you so much!

I pray that God gives us wisdom to raise you and I pray that you will have a wonderful year.  Happy birthday, my big adventurer!
