24 weeks

Dear Willa,

We are over halfway through our wait to meet you!  As of Wednesday, the pregnancy is 24 weeks along.  Even as I type this I can feel you wiggling and jumping in my tummy.  I never get used to it; it’s always exciting to feel you move.  I felt a little sick at the very beginning with you, for about 3 weeks.  But since then I have felt pretty good!  Sometimes I don’t sleep so great (but that is mostly due to your big sister waking up so much!).  For a while I wanted to eat tacos pretty much everyday.  Then I wanted asian food.  I have LOVED salt and vinegar chips and mustard for the whole pregnancy so far.  At the 17 week ultrasound I had to get up and move so much to get you to move around; it was really funny.



Your name, Willa, is one that I had never heard of until recently but your dad and I agreed, as he put it, that it just sounded like your name.  He said, “it resonates”.  (We’re still working on your middle name.)

You have a big brother and sister who could not be more excited about you.  Seriously.  I don’t think there was ever a pair of siblings more thrilled to have a new baby in the family.

I’ve started to think about planning your room and getting it all ready.  I have a feeling that this summer is going to fly by and you will be with us before we know it.
