Well little one, here we are at 17 weeks. You've been growing a ton lately and just two days ago I was able to hear your sweet little beating heart for the third time. How is it that each time gets sweeter and sweeter? We find out in just 4 short weeks whether you are a little guy or a little lady. I can barely contain my excitement. I have always imagined you to be a little boy but now that we've been together for 4 months, I just don't know. You'd think us being together would have given me a clearer sense or that "feeling" of what you are but It really hasn't. These past few days I've been convinced you are a sweet little lady. Soon enough we will know and then I can prepare my heart for the arrival of my precious baby ____ . Eeek! 4 more weeks! Until then, I will cherish the mystery of not knowing - of always referring to you as "he or she" - of spending hours dreaming of what our relationship will be like as you grow into a man or woman...... I can't believe how in love I am with you already.
