Hey there Baby Girl,

You, my little Appleseed, have excellent timing. I’ve been waiting to feel those little kicks for weeks–stressing myself out over all the possible scientific explanations for why I haven’t felt them yet. And here you were, biding your time until your daddy and I could experience it together. You waited til you were strong enough for him to feel them too–he’s so proud of his little girl. I think I understand the “fluttering” description people give, but it’s nothing like intangible butterflies. It’s movement. It’s life. We cannot wait to meet you. To see what details God is knitting together to make you unique. You are so special. And you are so deeply loved.

Love, mama

What a beautiful memory to get to share together.
