Week 38

Dear Grant,
You are now 39 weeks and 1 day.  Grandma Lizzie and Aunt Abby got here on Tuesday and are anxiously waiting with Mommy and Daddy for your arrival into the world.  We are so excited to meet you and your cute chubby cheeks. 
Our neighbour Nicole took pictures of  Mommy's very pregnant belly and Daddy last week so they can show you when you are older what Mommy looked like with you in her.
You've been kicking around more the past couple of days and have started kicking and wiggling a little stronger than before.
We had a doctor appointment last week and Mommy was dialated to 1.5, which is normal for how old you are. 
We also had another ultrasound, where we got to see you again.  You smiled every time Mommy would laugh. 
 You seem to be pretty happy in your little cacoon.
The ultrasound technician said you weigh about 7 lbs 10 oz.  Mommy was 8 lbs 13 oz. 21 inches when she was born and Daddy was 9 lbs 3 oz. 23 inches when he was born.  We wonder how big you will be.
Your Great Grandpa Glen passed away this week.  Mommy loved her Grandpa very much.  He used to call her his partner girl.  Mommy is excited to tell you stories about your Great Grandpa Glen when you are older.  He was an amazing man.  Mommy likes to think that you are hanging out with her Grandpa right now and hearing stories from him. 
Mommy and Daddy love you.


  1. Sorry to hear about your Grandpa. :( Love the cute pics though- hopefully he comes out sooner rather than later so your family will be there to help out longer!
