You are so wanted.

Hi, my Frijolito, this post is for you.

Maybe I should call you my little raspberry, that's about the size of you right now. I want you to know how much happiness, hope, excitement, and curiosity you have brought into my life in your short eight weeks of existence.  I want you to know that already, you are so incredibly loved by the handful of people who know of you.  I want you know how excited I am for these next four weeks to fly by so that I can announce this new life to the rest of the world.  It isn't that I am not confident in you.  I know you have already beat so many odds by just being around, no help needed.  I just want to give you the proper amount of time to grow stronger and healthier inside my little belly before I start having to answer questions and comments about you.
I still find it hard to believe you are here. Growing more and more each day.  If it wasn't for your daily reminders via my nausea monster, I may forget altogether of the precautions I have to take from now on.  You are worth every second of the fatigue I'm feeling.

I got to see you again yesterday.  This time, I saw your little heartbeat.  You've grown so much already in the short two weeks since I last saw you - going from a mere 4mm to a whole 17mm.  I can see the little spots where your beautiful big eyes will be (because you're definitely getting my eyes!).  I love you to the moon and back a gazillion times.  I'm excited to watch you grow.  You are my entire world - you will never fully understand just how much you are wanted. Keep pushing through.  Keep being my little miracle.
