Dear Baby,

I am writing you this letter to let you know It really is okay for you to come out now I promise. I just mopped, did laundry and have a stocked fridge but you should know it doesn't last forever, a couple days tops so if you want to come home to a clean house you better come soon.

If you are worried to come out because we don't have a name picked out for you there is no need to worry, you will have a name before we leave the hospital, I promise.

I don't know if you know this, but you are growing everyday and every ounce you grow adds soo much more uncomfortableness when you move or kick me in the ribs. Don't get me wrong, I have loved being your oven, but I would also love to be able to put on my shoes again without breaking into a sweat because I can't reach my toes and be able to last more than an hour before feeling like my bladder is going to burst, and not to mention I just don't want to be huge anymore.

If you are afraid to come out because of all of the noise, crying and yelling you hear from your brother and sister everyday, don't worry, you will learn to block it out, I have. Oh and I apologize too now for what they just might do to you, like if Mya accidentally drops you or Tay smacks you on the head with a toy truck, or feeds you something you really shouldn't be eating I am so sorry. I will protect you as best as I can.

I promise I will try not to let you cry but you should know now that there may be times when I won't be able to give you my full attention. Like if Mya gets into the fingernail polish or Tay climbs up on the counter, or I really need to take two seconds to use the bathroom you'll just have to learn to be patient.

We are really excited to have you be a part of our family so I hope you decide you are ready to join us. Oh and if you want to make it soon that would be very very nice, and I would prefer it to be during the day because it is not fun to go into labor at midnight and have to be awake all night then the next day, It makes one really, really, really tired. If you do decide to come at night that is fine too I guess. Just make it quick because we all can't wait to meet you.

Love, Mom

P.S. If you are hanging out in there just to try and teach me a lesson in patience there's no need. Something you will learn is that your older sister is THE ultimate patience tester so there is no need for you to try and compare. You can just be a sweetheart okay!

Julie, you are so cute. I hope the baby comes soon too, for your sake. Anticipating the arrival can seem never-ending. My heart skipped a beat today, I thought it was going to be a birth announcement. It should be any minute now, good luck!
