Thoughts from The Womb

(for my niece-to-be...arriving 11/22)




What I know so far:

Four more days and I'll be "done".

Apparently, I'll be living somewhere else then.....

How I'll get there is a mystery to me.

Right now I have eyelashes and fingernails and hair that floats.

When I get out, I'll get teeth and hats.

God gave me  a beautiful Soul, but I'm not supposed to say when.

My Mom's name is "Honey" and my Dad's name is "Babe".

When he comes home, her heart beats faster.

My sisters come right up close to talk to me.

Do they know I put my hand out to touch them?

Things I can do in here: Hum. Think about bunnies.

When I get out I want to go on a Royal Carribean Cruise.

Two things I don't want are freezer burn and gingivitis.

Just a few more days and I'll see Mom's face...

But I already know it's beautiful.

That was sweet! I am getting a niece any day as well! I know she is already thinking about her favorite aunt! And also about how much she loves Edward...

Heather said...

Oh, this is just the sweetest thing.

Seriously, I'm tearing up here.

*sniff sniff*

If your niece takes long enough in labor and is born on the 23rd, she'll share my youngest sister's birthday. Which falls on Thanksgiving sometimes. Yep, our little turkey. :)

I hope she has a swift and uncomplicated delivery!

At first glance I thought- Okay who's guest posting for HHS? Once I got to freezer burn and bunnies, I knew it was all you gurl.
If you're not asked to be this babies Godmother, you come back and delete this post.
