31 Weeks Pregnant With Ever Elizabeth





Our Ever,

Your hair color is a constant wondering around this house. Daddy and I both have redheaded moms, and your Auntie Kristi has a redheaded son, your cousin Jacob. So it's very possible that you, little miss, will have red hair. But...you could also easily have blonde, like Aunt Lura and I, or brown, like Daddy and his Daddy. Your eyes could be green like Aunt Kristi's or hazel like Daddy's and Ian's or blue like mine and your Lola and Dakota's. You could have the freckled sweep of cheeks that Aunt Kristi and I have or the clear fair skin of Aunt Lura. I don't know. But it's fun to guess. I can see your face. I cannot see the features, but it's like a close up- I can't see the detail but I can see what it important, the essence of you, what I will feel when I look into your face. Your nose may surprise me but your spirit will not, little girl. You weigh about 3 pounds now and I bet you are going to be about 21 inches like your brother and sister were, from how you manage your little feet up underneath my right rib cage while your tiny hands press into my low abdomen. Last night I ate dinner at Grandma Mary's and she fed me a cold veggie and bean salad on greens with chicken and homeade french fries and I ate it all and you kicked and kicked to show your delight. Then I took all my fish oils because your brain is in a big hurry growing right now. Today, I came home on lunch break and made out with your Daddy for a good half hour before rushing back, late to work. Totally worth it. You were very sweet and kept totally quiet the whole time. Thank you for that. :)

Love
Mommy

You are one beautiful mother with the smoothest skin on the biggest most gorgeous belly!

Elisabeth said...

It makes you wonder, after all your imaginings - what will Ever be like? When she appears? It's one of the most joyful mysteries awaitng you. Lucky you, a new baby on the way.

so pretty!

Allison the Meep said...

You are so beautiful!!

And doesn't it make you crazy, not knowing what she looks like? When I was pregnant with Audrey, I couldn't allow myself to dwell on it too much because it made me nuts. Then she came out looking completely the opposite of what I expected her to, yet somehow I feel like I've known her face my entire life.

Ms. Moon said...

Beautiful in all ways.

I remember envisioning my son as this raven-haired brooding boy. He came out a swan white-haired brooding boy. I had the spirit right but not the hair color.
You're extraordinarily beautiful, by the way!

Maggie,
You are one lovely pregnant lady. Hang in there, babe. You're in the home stretch.

Love,

SB

Nothing lovelier then a growing belly.

Hopefully you're not suffering in that heat wave you mentioned... Sheesh! Stay cool and hydrated...

I love this idea of writing to Ever pre-birth. Oh and your belly is gorgeous and your grin reaches everywhere, even to Ever.

Babbling Brook said...

Gosh I wish you lived closer so we could hang out and have coffee and say "bad" words while discussing our lives together.

You are beautiful my dear.

Ellen said...

The power of pregnancy is ever blooming in you Maggie...in words and in your thoughts to your child Ever. To delight in your good times now and to come...to be....

It's like the quiet before the storm. You're gorgeous.

Jenn Flynn-Shon said...

This is just beautiful, you're almost there now, only a few short weeks to go until you find out the physical answers to all your questions. I'd say you already have the emotional answers nailed :-)
