Love at 21 Weeks

Here is the 4D that we had taken on Friday for our 2nd trimester screening. She is opening her mouth and sticking out her tongue at us. She is healthy, and we do not have to come back to the Ultrasound specialist anymore. All systems go.

Since I saw this picture of our little girl, it's almost like I have fallen in love. I can't stop looking at her. I imagine what it will be like to meet her. What kind of personality will she have? What color will her eyes be, brown like mine or green like her fathers? I see us together on my bike, riding together to the Farmers Market on Saturday mornings to buy fresh fruit, and then we will make a peach pie that we all share for dinner. It may sound so cheesy - but it's like being in love. All the plans you make. Imagining what it is like to hold the other person. Thinking about what they smell like. Looking into their eyes. The butterflies in your stomach.

I wonder if she can feel how much I love her. She is kicking alot, and turning alot. I hope she knows.
