dear olivia,

to my olivia,
i can no longer contain my excitement. the mere thought of you makes me smile and giggle like a 5 year old on christmas morning. i can't explain the feeling. knowing that you are a full term baby, just a week from your due date, and that you can come at any moment makes me want to jump on the bed in happiness (but i won't do that because that would be bad). everything is practically ready. your room is beyond what i imagined for you. i keep finding myself walking in there just to take it all in, again. your bag is packed for the hospital, the car seat is installed in the car, and sometimes i walk around the house pushing your stroller. i have been really lucky throughout this pregnancy and now is when i am getting sad that its almost over.

i cannot wait to see what you look like. i dream about you but in my dreams you look like a child that cannot possibly be ours (light blondish hair & green eyes... YA RIGHT!) i want to see whose nose, eyes, ears, hands, feet, smile, etc. that you have. i am looking forward to holding you and kissing you and all the other amazing things that will happen in those first few moments. your daddy and i are just so happy right now! just please hold off for another 6 days. your daddy is leaving on monday to take his bar exam and he really wants to be here for your arrival. we will love you regardless :)

all my love,
