Dear Baby Number Four,
We are so excited to meet you! The countdown has officially started. You are less than 30 days to making your appearance into this amazing world. Your brother, sisters, father and I are more than thrilled to welcome you.
Here’s a pic of us getting a sneak peek at you for the first time last year in September.
Yes, your dad and I are a little nervous that you and your siblings will outnumber us one to two. It is actually kind of frightening. We’ll learn how to deal though.
Did you know that you are the only one that your dad didn’t find out the gender for? Yep. That’s true. How exciting is that?! While everyone (even strangers) want you to even out the numbers for Conrad’s sake, your dad and I are just hoping you are a healthy and happy baby.
You’ve been kicking up a storm in my belly as of late, so I think you’ll be taking up soccer (and loving it) like your siblings have.
We have a few predictions for you:
- Ansley had Conrad to baby. We think Aubrey will baby you.
- You’ll be the most spoiled of them all as the youngest and probably get away with the most.
- Conrad will not be happy initially. He’s pretty much got all the attention right now. You are going to rock his world.
I want you to know that you are loved and very much planned! We wanted you in this world so very much. With you, we tried the longest to become pregnant. Your dad and I are very blessed that even with our timeline, it was short compared to other parents. Here’s a photo of us after finally getting a positive test after using a little over 40 pregnancy tests in totality (I went a little crazy).
This was a few moments after finding out. His expression was purely for shock value of the photo, but we were beyond excited to finally get a positive test!
P.S. We haven’t bought you a crib yet. We’re trying to figure out which of the kids will get to bunk. That just means that you’ll get to stay in our room that much longer!
P.P.S. Oh, can you try not to overstay your welcome? The family wants to meet you – and I’d like to see my ankles again one day.
