My darlingest daugher,

Well my sassy little sprite, we have been together for 20 weeks now. And already, I think you've got a pretty distinct personality. Just take your 17 week ultrasound. You even made the tech laugh! As soon as there was a camera on you, you turned your tiny head right towards us and waved. All I got out was, "Is she...?" and the right away the lady laughed and said, "Yep! That's definitely a wave!" Hehe. Then I found out you were a girl after we referred to you as "he" for so long. You didn't seem offended though. After we got the shot, the camera moved back to your little face and the tech started laughing again. You had your mouth wide open like you were laughing saying, "Haha! Gotcha, mama and daddy!" So basically, I think you're a mini jokester.
 You sure are a strong! You really like to kick me while I try to fall asleep. Actually it seems your favorite time of day is 11am or pm. Apparently, that's play time. It's fun to keep track of these things. Just to see if you're still like that when you're here. To see if 11 is still fun time. If you're still a ham for the camera. If you like to joke around and play tricks on your daddy. If food time is still your favorite time. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that. So, like I said before in another post, I talk to you a lot. And usually I ask you what you want to eat because, let's face it, in my right, non-pregnant mind, I would never eat some of the combinations I've had in the past 5 months. Almost every time, after we agree on something and I eat it, you do a little back flip. Seriously. I feel you flutter kicking all over the place like you're saying "Mmm good job, mom." So we'll see if you're the same picky, indecisive eater down the road.

I know this all sounds crazy and you're probably freaked out that this crazy person is your mama. But know that I do these silly things--keeping track of your personality-thus-far and writing you letters that you won't read for a while--because I find you so fascinating. We're half way through this pregnancy, we are :) And these little things help me pass the time til you're here.I just can't wait to meet you. I want you here now! Hehehe. I want to see your face. I want to talk to you and sing songs to you. Cuz...right now I just look silly doing those things to my tummy. I love you, monkey. And now I'm going to go get myself an orange, because that's what you want right now.
