Mommy + Baby = 1
I can’t believe that we are finally together! This feels so surreal… I’m still overtaken by a mix of feelings because it’s really early and I don’t feel you yet… I’m in love and scared, anxious and happy, nervous and looking forward to going through each stage with you.
While I’m scared that somehow our dream will be cut short and you’ll be taken from us before we can hold you, I’m also choosing to embrace my vulnerability because I wanna feel all the love that I can… I don’t want to be scared to love you.
I wanted to say welcome to your new house… I promise I’ll behave really well! I’ll eat healthy whole foods, go on daily walks, stretch, and meditate. I want my belly to be really cozy so you stay there as loooong as possible. Please make sure to kick a bunch as soon as you can cuz mom tends to freak out easily and the more I feel you’re OK in there, the better.
Your dad and I have finally been talking baby names and we don’t seem to agree on the topic LOL — maybe LOL isn’t used anymore by the time you read this but it actually means “laughing out loud”. He suggested Kyani if you’re a girl, he seems certain you’ll be a girl. I used to be sure you were a girl too, but now I’m not so sure. Although I like the name, we already have a Kiana and a Keanu in our “extended” family, so that would be confusing… We both like Isabella, although I think that name is too… “normal”. It’s going to be hard coming up with a consensus… we need a name that fits all our criteria:
- It needs to work in English
- It needs to work in Portuguese
- No bible names
- Needs to be unique!
Good thing we have 35 weeks to discuss it! Taking suggestions! 😉
We are also trying to buy our first house and we are making plans on what to do on your little room. We decided to wait until we actually own it to come up with a real plan… we don’t want to jinx it. Plus grandma and grandpa are living in your room right now so we need to wait until they find a place of their own before we can start working on our nest.
I love you so much already and can’t wait to see you and hear your little heart beating on our first “virtual meet-up” (AKA Ultrasound) a couple weeks from now.
With all my love,
