(4 Weeks) 7 Weeks: Blueberry

Dear Poppy,
Tonight mommy and daddy finally found out you are on the way. It came as quite a shock, but there is no better surprise than a baby. We already love you. Your big sister, Sophia, is only four months old right now, and she can't wait to meet you. I can hardly believe how much you have grown without my knowledge. You are already the size of a blueberry! I even read that you are starting to grow your arms and legs this week. I can't wait until those precious little arms can wrap themselves around my neck.

After daddy and I found out about you, we sat on the kitchen floor for a long time and talked about you. We decided we are not going to find out if you are a boy or girl. We want you to surprise us on your birthday! We talked and laughed about how to tell everyone you are coming. We both love you very much. I am excited to track your progress as you grow inside of me. We are so excited to meet you, little one.

"Big news this week! Your hands and feet are emerging from your arms and legs — although they look more like paddles at this point than the tiny, pudgy extremities we're daydreaming about holding and tickling. You have doubled in size since last week and now measure half an inch long, about the size of a blueberry!" (
