Dear Baby Boy,

We need to have a little chat. Here I am, a week away from your due date. Note my stern face. (You should be on the lookout for that in the future.)
For contrast, here is a picture of me just before your big sister was born at a nice 7 lbs 15 oz. Notice the smile. It's probably because I was not carrying a massive amount of weight around on my front. (You should know that it's not very comfortable.)
Let's just say I'm getting a little concerned. We first started putting in our official requests for you about 2 1/2 years ago. I had hoped the delay in actually getting you was due to a backorder of healthy, reasonably sized, cute, calm, non-colicy, sleeping-through-the-night babies. That's not too much to ask, right? Again, to me, you seem to be growing beyond the "reasonably sized" option, which makes me concerned about the possibility of the others as well. So, you have a week (more or less--hopefully not too much on the "more" side). Please do not grow much bigger.

Thank you,
Your loving mother

c, i wrote a very SIMILAR letter to my little will (who we waited 4 years for) and he clearly didn't read the letter. here's to hoping yours will. and you look darling, by the way (even with a tad more belly than with the previous pregnancy...that's impressive). i'm getting sooo excited for you. we love babies!

Boys just tend to stick out more! That's how I looked with both of mine. One came 8 days early and one only 2 days early. I was so ready when they were born :) You look great, hope your new one hurries up and reads your letter.

I can't believe the difference between the two pregnancies. You crack me I hope he shows up soon. I got HUGE with both my "little" ones(7lbs5oz and 7lbs 6oz) and my "big" (8lbs 20z) one.

So here's hoping he isn't all that big but just the way you carry him. You look awesome, Catherine.

lol! I think you look darling--I only WISH I looked liked you! :)

You look so skinny and cute! I know you don't feel that way, but you do. Good luck with everything! I hope we can get together soon.

Catherine! You are a darling pregnant girl. It's just your tummy that is pregnant, not your arms and legs too! (As opposed to how I get!) You can be proud of your cute body! I am thrilled for your new son to arrive, and hope everything goes great and that you get exactly what you "ordered"!! :)
