You and I have spent a lot of time together sitting and laying around at home. This makes me feel robbed. I am unable to get your new home ready for you in ways that I thought I would. I am here at home with you on this side of the pregnancy instead of on the other side when I would be able to actually sit here and hold you and look at you. Robbed.
On Saturday, some of our friends came over and performed CPR into our home. What I mean by that is that they revived us and gave us hope that we just might be ready for you. They built your closet, they painted your dresser, they helped us turn our loft room into a “family room” and they cleaned and scrubbed. Our friends helped prepare our gardens and backyard so that you would come home to a beautiful home and so that when your friends and family come to meet you, the house looks like a home.
Oh LuLu, we are all so lucky and blessed!
In less than a month we will officially meet you! Your grandparents have their airline tickets to meet you and so does your Auntie Malia. Every day it seems I’m making arrangements with someone to come and meet you and be with you!
This week, Mommy (that’s me!!!!) is working on finding childcare for you once she has to return to work. There are so many options yet there aren’t because you deserve the BEST and I’m sorry but you are being born into a life of very little money. This means that we’ll do our BEST to get you the BEST we can but all that you deserve is just a bit out of reach.
On Sunday, the youth at (one of) our church(es) are throwing a baby shower for you. After that the only day on our calendar in the near future is your birth date! This date keeps moving and for that we are thankful! Right now the date sits on Monday but hopefully on Thursday we’ll see that date get moved even further back!
I thank God that you appear to be healthy and growing and successful in your end of the deal. Hang in there a few more weeks, please!
We love you.
Mommy & Daddy (and Pixy & Jolly & Heidi the fish)
