Week 30 & 31....

Little Byron,
Mommy is a week behind writing to you! Been lots going on and the time is going faster and faster. During week 30 of mommy being pregnant, you began to see pretty well; even though it's dark, you were scoping out the environment! Your brain grew rapidly during week 30, but you did not gain much weight. Mommy saw the Doctor on March 11 and you were measuring 32 centimeters and average that week was 30cm... You will be taller than mommy for sure! Your hair began growing thicker during week 30! The doctor said on March 11 that you are already in the right "birthing position!" Your daddy turned 26 on Saturday and we threw him a beer and diaper party... We were very blessed and got lots of diapers for you!! I have to teach your daddy how to change them when you get here! He's convinced he will have you potty trained by 2 days old!! 

Week 31...9 weeks to go...OR LESS!!!

Baby Byron,
I can't believe there is so little time left until you will be in our arms! You are now weighing around 3.5 pounds! You are now practicing breathing 30-40% of the time. Your bones are hardening and preparing to support your tiny body after birth! Mommy's belly is getting bigger and bigger and bigger! Although I've been feeling great, I do get tired real easy!! My love for you grows so much every second and my heart aches to hold you now! I can't wait for that moment I get to look at you for the first time! 

John 16:21
"A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world."

We love you so much Byron Michael! 

Love mommy and daddy

Week 29...11 weeks to go, or less :)))

Baby Byron,
I think about you all the time and what a blessing and miracle you are! I know you can hear me and daddy when we talk to you and only pray our bond grows stronger and stronger with each passing day!  This week you are over 15 inches... You will be daddy's little basketball buddy with your long legs! During this week, your brain is in charge of maintaining body temperature and also is controlling your breathing! Your irises are now able to respond to light by dilating and contracting. When you cough or hiccup, mommy can feel you! As long as I feel you squirming around I know you are happy and healthy! I can't wait to teach you about God and how he made you...mommy and daddy's little miracle! You are constantly bursting with energy and love kicking!!! Daddy keeps telling me I need to eat hot and spicy foods because he wants you to like those foods, just like him, he adores you sweet boy and can't wait to hold you and look in your eyes. Soooo... This week, mommy has been eating the hot pretzels that daddy loves, and you either LOVE then or they are tooooo hot for you because I've never felt you move as much as you did when I was eating them! Mommy and daddy celebrated our 2 year anniversary this week...our next anniversary, you will be 10 months old! I don't been want to think about you growing up already! In these short 29 weeks you have taught me so much already! You already have that special place in my heart and I can't even begin to imagine how I will feel when I lay eyes on YOU!! 

We love you sweet, handsome boy! Love mommy and daddy
