Dear Baby, We've had an uneventful week...

14 weeks

Dear Baby,

This week was so uneventful—hurray! I’m feeling well; I trust you’re doing well, and there were no major (or minor) mishaps.

Your Aunt Jen sent me a gift card to buy some maternity clothes, and your Uncle Bud is making you something for your room. I had lunch with your Cousin Bailey this week, and she asked so sweetly, “How’s Baby?” She brought me a present (a gift card to get some maternity clothes)!Your Mimi has been shopping for you this week, too. See how many people love you already? We’ll spend the weekend with your Zanowiak cousins and get to see your Cole cousins, too.
We’re dropping off your baby furniture to be painted by Aunt Lori’s friend. I can’t wait to see what it looks like! Your room will be full of special family things. Your crib and chest of drawers was what your Aunt Lori, Uncle Bud, Uncle Heath, and I used when we were babies, the dresser was your Mammaw’s, and then you’ll have the special piece your Uncle Bud makes!

I’ve been having fun obsessing over your nursery. Just can’t quite decide what I want it to look like. I’m hoping once we find out whether you’re a son or a daughter, something will just jump out and grab me!

Here’s what you were up to this week:

You are continuing to grow and mature at this point. Your arms are going to begin to lengthen and be more proportioned to the rest of your body. The liver is beginning to produce bile, while the spleen is beginning to produce red blood cells.

The development of your brain enables you to use your facial muscles to grimace, frown, and squint. You may even be sucking your thumb.

You are now over 4 inches long and weigh just a little less than 2 ounces.

These were my prayers for you this week:

That you will have strong arms that are quick to do acts of service. That you continue to grow, and that my body continues to accommodate you.




  1. It sounds like you will have a wonderful nursery. Don't worry about the bedding -- you will know it when you see it, and if you don't, I am always willing to give an honest opinion! :-)

  2. Can't wait to give my knew niece of nephew lots of hugs and kisses, he/she is going to receive so much love it's not going to know what's hit him. I love you sweet little baby, keep growing and can't wait to meet you. We're praying for you, your sweet cousins are faithful prayer warriors!!! Lori

  3. I can't wait to meet you baby Z and give you lots of sugars!!!! I bet your nursery is going to be perfect!!!!!!
