Happy Valentine's Day to my precious little baby. The reason I can barely put my own shoes on anymore. I know I will miss feeling your solid little body every time I bend over, but I will also welcome the sight of my own feet again. I hope you will enjoy the chocolate that I am consuming and will continue to consume throughout the day, it's mostly for me but I have never denied any of my baby's the exquisite pleasure of tasting chocolate. You may not be surrounded by amniotic fluid, but you are surrounded by warm, encompassing love today. The love of your father and I and the love of your siblings, whose hot and cold little hands have taken a real liking to you as of late. Especially the youngest who insists that my shirt be "opened" so that she can properly feel you. I enjoy being able to place their small hands on your tiny head almost as much as I enjoy caressing that little head myself. Grow strong in our love, little one, and be prepared for lots and lots of valentine kisses when we meet you.
