To our Little Baby Bear…
When it came time to plan your grandparents next visit up to Dallas…(to bring up ALL the wonderful clothes your older cousin Addison had used when she was a baby and saved for you ;).. I knew that it would be a perfect opportunity to get them up during our next sonogram visit. I wish you could’ve heard the excitement in your Grandma Maldonado’s voice when I told her the plan. Your Grandpa and Grandma were BOTH MORE than a little giddy at the thought of seeing you moving around in your mama's belly. Apparently sonograms weren’t common place when your Grandma was having me, way back in the day, so they were thrilled to see new technology in action!
It took a few weeks of preparation (on their part) to gather all the bins of Addie’s old clothes (size newborn to 3T!!), baby blankets, burp cloths, sweet little baby shoes, bouncers… you name it, they were bringing it!! Finally, after gathering, packing and carefully repacking again… the day had come to stuff Grandpa’s truck to capacity and make the NINE hour trek to see all of us. You can’t imagine ALL the stuff they had for you! There were at least EIGHT, HUGE plastic bins full of stuff… it was absolutely incredible, and I couldn't WAIT to start unpacking it all! :)
The next morning after their arrival, on Friday, June 29th, it was finally time to pack us all into that little sonogram room. The room was busting at the seams with all the nervous energy and you could feel the anticipation in the air. After what seemed like an hour of waiting for the sonographer to come in to meet with us.. she walked in, dimmed the lights, got my belly full of gel goop and we were off!
Almost immediately, there were Ooooohhhhhh's and Awwwww's from all of us as you showed us that, since our last visit, you had learned to YAWN!!
And I kept putting 27 weeks on these videos (cause that's what I am right at this moment but.. I was really 25weeks 3days in these videos)
My growing belly.. with YOU in it, at nearly 27 weeks. :)
