17 Weeks:

Dear Baby, 

You have been growing and changing for 17 weeks now. It is pretty crazy to think that you have been living and growing inside of me for that many weeks now. Last night as we were laying in bed I started to feel you squirm and move. Doug had been scratching my belly and I asked him if he could feel anything. He could. We both laid there amazed and overwhelmed at your first tiny noticeable movements. I think you like scratches, just like me. And I am excited to go to bed tonight hoping you are in the mood to do a few more flips and squirms. 

We love you baby...More than you will ever know.

Danae, you were MADE for this. You and that scratchy husband o' yours are going to be the best parents. I can just hear a little voice calling down the hallway, "Mama! Scratchy! I'm ready for my bedtime story! Tonight I want something by D.A. Carson!"

Sigh...I had to look twice when you signed Baby Castle's letter "Mama". That is my favorite name that you call me. Now, it is yours. I'm so happy for you. :)
