Dear Logan

Dear Logan,

I am constantly amazed at the moments I have gone through and the things people say to me since I have been pregnant with you. I am 22w2d pregnant and that is over 3 months longer than I have ever been pregnant before. I never made it far enough to be "showing" with your siblings and it's amazing the things that people do and say.

First of all SO FAR I have yet to have my belly attacked by random strangers - THANK GOODNESS - because mommy may punch them ;) (but seriously I might!) Luckily I don't leave the house and go around a lot of strangers a lot so I think that has helped stop the belly attack possibilities. So as of now (other than your dad of course) I have only had a friend and your great grandma touch my belly. Both were fine which was reassuring because I didn't want to punch a friend or relative ;) hormones make mommy very protective!

I find it hilarious the things that women will tell you once you are pregnant. For instance the ever popular "you're so beautiful, you're GLOWING!" - I would really like to say "well I think you are just noticing the oil that my growing child is helping to produce all over my face and scalp that has turned me into a shiny piece of garland...not sure why you find that beautiful" however I don't say that. I just say thank you. You will learn sooner or later Logan that you can't usually say exactly what you're thinking. That is until you get older like your great grandma who lets EVERYONE know exactly what she thinks but hey that's part of her charm and is rather hilarious - let's just hope she thinks you're cute! Though I don't see how anyone won't I mean your mommy and daddy are bound to make a cute child, I'm just sayin' ;)

Other things people say to me are that my belly is so "adorable". I find this to be absolutely hilarious because I have never been a small person, pretty much been overweight for the majority of my adult life. I constantly try not to laugh when people say that about my belly because it is the ONLY time when a huge belly is considered "gorgeous, cute, adorable,etc." any other time you're just fat. Gets me every time. Too funny. Maybe it doesn't amuse those that were skinny to begin with but I certainly thinks it's hilarious. I mean hey I'm down with people loving my big belly because you're just going to get bigger which means so is my belly so bring on the compliments about it ;) it's the only time my belly will ever get praise ;)

Also people like to tell your mom some really odd stuff that I am not sure I would ever admit to another human being. Such as telling me I can always pee in a bucket if I don't want to walk to the bathroom 5 times a night, etc. Now I am not one to judge by all means if a pregnant woman would like to pee in a bucket have at but I do find it odd to tell someone they should! LOL My bathroom is literally 3-4 feet down the hallway so I'm fine with using the toilet ;) But it's still an odd thing for one, let alone two people to tell me to do!

I would like to apologize Logan for the loud movie at the theater last night. You were kicking me a lot (which I love) but I hope it wasn't because you were mad at all the noise! Sherlock Holmes creates awfully loud situations in that movie but he is one funny dude. One day we can watch that movie together and I will tell you how you kicked me a ton when mommy and grandma went to see it. I bet you'll think that's funny. I must say that I love to feel you move around in there. It is literally the best feeling in the world. I'm very excited for your daddy to feel you kick me too! He thinks it will be creepy but he will change his tune once it happens :) I just know it! I don't mind at all if some of the kicks later on hurt or make me uncomfortable because knowing you are doing well will be worth the pain. You mean the world to mommy and daddy and we can't wait to meet you.

Riley, Peyton, and Cameron,
Keep and eye on mommy and your baby brother :) We all love you so very much and miss you greatly. I wish you were here to spend Christmas with us but I know you will have a lovely Christmas with Nana. Spend lots of time with her... it's her favorite time of year and we will all be holding back tears this Christmas because the whole family misses her so much. I'm so glad that you have her to spend time with because I know she would have loved to meet all of you and Logan. She was a wonderful Nana :) We love you so much my angels, send us some snowflake kisses. We miss you.


  1. Love LOVE this post :-)


  2. I love that quote! Yes, you are right people do crazy things when you are pregnant!

  3. I love the picture about rainbows! Yes, people can say some weird things to pregnant women - like they are given a license to do that! Merry Christmas to all of you & I hope Santa leaves some things for Logan to enjoy after he is born! Thinking about your babies and your Nana...xoxo.

  4. That is a beautiful letter Jessica to Logan, I remember feeling the baby move when I was pregnant each time, it was incredible, and a feeling you will cherish forever!

    Also, I am one of the belly attackers so its a good thing, I am not near you or you would hit me!!!!!

    Have a Happy New year!

  5. LOVE the rainbow picture - where did you find it?
