Dear Little Baby,
Yesterday I had my appointment with Dr. Parson. You are still doing well. I’m still not showing any signs of infection. Every single day we get closer to 23 weeks (only 9 more days!) and every single day we wake up, we are defying the odds more and more. Today it is snowing. Even the community college is closed! (Anyone that has ever attended a community college knows that the community colleges close last. After the schools, after the bases, after all of the local businesses…) It is supposed to snow all day long. In North Carolina (especially on the coast) snow that sticks is pretty rare. Your big sisters will get to play in the snow later on today. Later today, the snow is supposed to turn to rain, and then anything that melts and any rain that falls will freeze tonight. So, North Carolina is on its second year of an exceptionally cold winter. Now that I am back home, all of my “adopted kids” are over here. We have a fire going in the fireplace, and the house is cozy in spite of the fact that your Daddy has been in charge of cleaning for the last few weeks (read: the house is a mess). In two days, it will be your oldest sister’s birthday. I am so excited for her birthday, because the same day we will be 22 weeks. Hang in there Little Baby. We’re going to make it.
