Dear Baby Boy, You're gonna have a partner in crime...

19 weeks

Guess what Baby Boy? Your going to have a partner in crime! Your cousin is a baby boy, too! How fun will that be? I'm so excited for you! And here I was thinking my kiddos wouldn't have cousins their age because I put kids off for so long. But Brody Parker will be just a little over 2 and half years older than you, Blaze a little over one and a half years older than you, and Baby Bozeman will be just days apart from you! How much fun with the four of you have??? Sounds like trouble to me! I can already imagine football games at Thanksgiving. And with these even numbers now, the boy cousins can play the girl cousins a little game of basketball...5 on 5!

It's been so fun knowing you're our little man these past few days. We haven't officially named you, but I'm so ready to. I want to call you by name! We alternate reading to you at night, and Daddy always starts off by saying, "Alright, little Buddy, here we go." We go back and forth reading Guess How Much I Love You and the Jesus Storybook Bible. Can't wait to read to you when you're here. I hope you love books as much as I do.

I finally felt you move on Monday! Hurray! I only feel you when I lay down at night though.

We had a productive week and got your room cleaned out, and the closet torn out so Uncle Bud and Daddy can get some work done this weekend. I worked on making the guest room an office/guest room combo while Daddy worked on the closet. It's been fun making preparations for you.

We get to see you again next week when we go to the Doctor. Can't wait! Keep growing strong!

Here's what you were up to this week:

While you continue to grow, the development that is occurring is very specific. For example, the kidneys are making urine, and hair is beginning to sprout on your scalp. The parts of the brain that are responsible for the senses are specializing.

You have grown so much during these 19 weeks, but you're still a little under 7 inches long and weigh about 7 ounces. (This is wrong for you little Buddy. The tech said you're already 12 ounces!)

These were my prayers for you this week:

That everything would look good on the sonogram---that all the parts of your brain would be there, the 4 chambers of your heart, 2 hands and 2 feet. That my body would continue to accommodate you. That you would have a curious mind and love to read and learn.

  1. I cannot imagine how much fun all these little guys are going to have together! I hope they all have high self-esteem because those girls will probably whip them in a game of 5 on 5.
