I woke up last Monday, forced myself out of bed, and immediately noticed my belly sticking out a wee bit further than normal. I texted Zach right away, "Tiny is growing!!!!!"
We made a trip to IKEA yesterday and found several goodies for the nursery, which is coming along slowly but surely. I can't wait to share it with you guys! We are yet to begin painting because, well, we don't like painting rooms. We've only done it once before and swore "never again", yet somehow Tiny is encouraging us to bust out the paint brushes one more time. We must really love you, Little Fullwood!
To our Baby Boy:
We can't believe you're finally starting to show your little self! You really love fruit Gushers and Chocolate Cheerios, which is perfectly fine by Mommy. Dad says you need carrots, but we're not doing so well in that department. Your little kicks make us think you're going to be a soccer player, or maybe you're just trying to get our attention. Either way, keep 'em comin'. We are so anxious to meet you and pray for your health and growth every single day.
