You’re a little over 10 weeks today. (I still laugh at pregnancy counting, because gestationally, you’re only 8 weeks.) You have fingers and toes, and you’re growing fingernails right now. If I had an ultrasound today, you would look like a tiny little human being.

I’m still tired a lot, but I know it won’t last forever. In a couple of weeks, I’ll have more energy, and start putting together the furniture and toys your Aunt Jessica* sent me. She calls me a lot to check in, and it’s nice to talk to someone who’s been there recently–and twice! I’m excited for you to meet her.

Your Aunt Alexis also called the other day. She wants to be there when you’re born. And my friend Anna wants to visit. You are already so loved!

People joke that babies change lives, but I’m ready for mine to change. You are my heart now. All the change is worth it for you.
