Letter for Lydia.

Dear Lydia,

Hey, sweet girl! The time is drawing near when we shall meet and I am so very excited.

You, my dear, are inside of that big belly. That's me. I am your Mama. You've heard my voice and now you can see my face. Ta-da! We have about two weeks until your due date! We are thrilled.

We have been busy preparing for your arrival! This is the room you and your big sister, Naomi, will share. She has been busily feeding and patting and cuddling her baby dolls, practicing for her new baby ... you. :)

Your family and friends have worked hard to make this room special and I think they've done a marvelous job.

(Your take-home outfit. Squee!)

Someday, you and your big sister will share these bunk beds. I can already hear the giggles and squeals. Oh, my heart is full.

The time of your arrival is drawing ever near and we are ready, my little love. I love to feel your kicks and pushes, your small hiccups and your light punches. Your Dadda and I love to talk to you and rub my belly. You are settled comfortably on the right side of my stomach, which gives my stomach a very funny crooked look if you look closely enough. I love it. I love that you are uniquely and wonderfully you, even within my stomach. God's fearful and wonderful touch on you is already undeniable.

We love you, Itty Bitty Liddy. We can't wait to meet you soon.



  1. I love that they're going to share a room! Everything looks beautiful and so do you:)

  2. I can't believe you are almost due...that went fast! Super cute room. I love the shared bunk beds.

    Best of luck in the coming weeks.

  3. Beautiful Mama, beautiful room...can't wait to meet the beautiful baby!!

  4. The room looks fantastic and you are gorgeous as always! Wish we could have coffee to chat about natural childbirth...I'm thinking about taking the plunge this time too :)

  5. You look fantastic and the girls' room is beautiful! I can't wait to see pics of Lydia, and Caleb and Naomi with their baby sister. Siblings are so precious!

  6. Their room is beautiful. They are lucky little girls (and Cub is lucky as well, of course!)

  7. love the room! and you look great. Is that PB bedding, Hayley? We thought about using that but stayed with the Brooke instead. LOVE PB girls bedding. good luck with everything as it draws closer :)

    (oh, I went all natural with E if you have any questions I am happy to help although I know you have already gotten a lot of advice)
