Letter to Bailey

Dear Bailey Mae,

Today is Thanksgiving Day and I am sitting here with my feet up trying to hold myself back from going back to get one more piece of pie. :)  I have thought about you so much today and I thought I would write you a letter so later when you read it you will know how excited I was about you coming into our lives.  Right now I am 31 1/2 weeks pregnant with you and I don't see how my belly could get any bigger!  I feel like a watermelon has snuck its way under my skin and is about to fall out!  But regardless of all the stretching out and pains, I cannot wait for you to be here and I am so glad you are about to be part of our family.  I guess I have been thinking of you more today because all of our family is here at Nona and Pop's house.  I wish you were already here for me to hold and cuddle.  I am even excited about getting to nurse you.  Your sister is so excited about you being here and she loves to tell everyone what your name is and that she's going to be a big sister!  Poor Avery probably thinks I have been pregnant with you forever because we have been telling her she's going to have a baby sister for over 6 months!  I am even excited about getting the pack 'n play out with the bassinet on top to bring to Nona and Pop's house for you to sleep in next to my bed.  I am looking forward to changing your diaper, feeding you, and holding you and comforting you when you cry.  I can't wait to see Avery get to hold you and get to know you.  She will be such a big helper for me and I know she is going to love you so much!  I can see her being a very protective big sister and I pray she will be your best friend.  I love you so much already Bailey, and I am so looking forward to meeting you and holding you for the first time.  You are going to be so loved and spoiled, just wait!  I pray God will hold you close until you are in my arms and long after that.  Your Mommy and Daddy are waiting anxiously for you!!
