I wonder if Smoothie King will still be around when you’re reading this. I think over the past two weeks, I finally developed a craving. I really like their dark chocolate banana smoothies.

I’ve been a little more tired lately, but I’ve been keeping myself busy. I started childbirth classes about a month ago, and I’m learning a lot about you and how I hope our child birth will go. I also bought a dresser and a crib, and I’ve been rearranging things in my room and the rest of the house, and washing and putting away all the baby clothes from your Aunt Jessica*. They say this is called nesting. Does that make me a mama bird?

You, mein Schatz, are very active. You often surprise me, and sometimes you even tickle :-).  You should ask me to show you the spot on my right side where you like to poke me just inside my ribs. I think that is your favorite place right now. I just like knowing that you’re active and growing. I often talk to you.

When I am tired, I spend a lot of time lying on the couch with Saki and Amy Anne. They are both cuddly and very sweet. I wonder if they understand how all our lives are about to change?

We still have two months before you are due, two months to nest and plan and grow. Grow strong, little one. Mama is excited to meet you!
