Dear Baby 2, You had a Merry Christmas...

We had our third and last Christmas as a family of 3!  I just kept thinking, "next year, we'll have 2 kids".  It's a great thought.  We celebrated at home, then went to the farm to celebrate with 11 of your cousins.  On Christmas Eve, I put Bo in his Big Bro shirt and let Bo "tell" the Bozeman family.  They are all excited to meet you!  Mimi and Pop are especially excited that 2012 will bring them their 12th grandbaby!  Your daddy sent a pic of your brother in the same shirt to his family so Bo could "tell" that side, too.

A couple of family members asked if we are hoping for a girl.  I can say with 100% certainty that I genuinely don't have a preference.  I'm so glad we don't get to choose whether you're a boy or girl.  I think either will be so great!  I so want Bo to have a little brother to pal around with, get in trouble with, argue with, and stand up with at his wedding.  At the same time, I want him to have a little sister to protect and want him to be doted on by his little sister.  And as for me, I want two little boys to raise and dress alike, but at the same time, I want a little girl to have tea parties with and dress in everything smocked!  Whatever we are given will be just what we want!

What you're up to this week (8 weeks):

You're about the size of a kidney bean.  Webbed fingers and toes are poking out from your hands and feet, your eyelids practically cover your eyes, breathing tubes extend from your throat to the branches of your developing lungs, and your "tail" is just about gone. In your brain, nerve cells are branching out to connect with one another, forming primitive neural pathways. Your external genitals still haven't developed enough to reveal whether you're a boy or a girl.

These were my prayers for you this week:

My first Christmas with your brother was on my mind a lot this year.  He had a lot of tummy troubles which we found out about shortly after Christmas.  I just keep praying that you will have a strong tummy and will not experience the MSPI he did.
