Thank you for bringing in all the Christmas bins so I can decorate the house even though you don't think they should go up until after Thanksgiving. I'm so excited to get everything out and I think you will like it too. You're such an awesome husband!
Your Happy Wife
Dear lady at the gym,
Thank you for asking me when I was due this week. It's always nice to have that first person who doesn't know you're pregnant say something. I now feel a little more pregnant and a little less fat.
An Excited Pregnant Woman
Thank you for having the kindest heart I have ever seen in a child. You amaze me with the passion you have and I love that you never go day without doing or saying something that melts my heart.
Your Very Proud Mama
(Here's one that I really loved from this week. Alexa has a children's read and learn Bible that she loves reading. She usually takes it with her to bed for rest time and at night and looks through it. There has been many times she will tell me a story from it just by looking through the pictures. This week she was looking at the end where they had Jesus' hands tied up and were bringing him to the cross. Alexa came running out of her room asking why they were doing that and then kept asking other questions like, "Do you think they were hurting Him?" and "Do you think Jesus cried?" and after we talked about what was happening she looks at me with the most serious face and says, "I do not like this one bit!" Such a sweet heart.)
Thank you for not getting sick or having any side effects after eating half of a pack of gum that you found in my purse. Oh, and thanks for not getting hurt after learning to crawl out of your crib this week. You sure do know how to freak your Mom out on a regular basis.
Your Thankful Mommy
Thank you for being my parent's neighbor, a great family friend and a doctor. I really appreciate that you don't mind getting calls because of a slightly panicked Mom and reassuring her that this isn't the first time a child has eaten a massive amount of gum.
A Mom You Will Probably Hear From Again
Dear Little Baby in my Belly,
Thank you for being so active and kicking hard enough that Daddy was able to feel you move for the first time last night. I was so excited and I think he was too. I can't wait for Alexa and Braden to be able to feel some of your kicks too.
Someone Who is Very Excited to Meet You
