Baby Big Mac - A Letter at 29 Weeks

February 11, 2014

Hey Baby Girl,

Today I am 29 weeks pregnant with you, which means you are the size of a butternut squash. Well knowing how big your brother was I am guessing you are a very large butternut squash. 29 weeks means we are 1 week in to the 3rd trimester, if born today you would have a decent chance of survival (but let's not test this please), and we only have about 10 to 12 weeks left together like this, I will have to share you soon. 

Right now I am on a plane back from my last work trip that requires a plane, and by the end of the week, we have a 2 day offsite in Carmel starting tomorrow, I will be done with work travel until I am back to work in the Fall. 

As you will learn I get sentimental on planes --- if alone I am usually longing for my family, if with my family I am typically so appreciative of the memories we have made or are about to make. 

That sentimentality is what encouraged me to jot this note down in my iPhone. Heading back to your Dad and Brother makes me weepy with anticipation, I am sure pregnancy doesn't help, and I am overcome with gratitude for the team I am returning to. Your Dad and I are such a good team and that is something I am thankful for everyday. Truth be told he is probably the MVP of our team, taking such good care of us, and I guess I just wanted to share with you how lucky we are little love. In your Dad we have our own hero and in your Brother, who is already so empathetic and compassionate, we will surely have a constant source of love and support. 

Can't wait to meet you, but hold tight and keep cooking, the team will wait (almost) as long as you want for our fourth.
