When I was pregnant with your sister, I did a blog post for her with the help of your cousin Autumn. Autumn provided some wisdom to fetus-Maddie, and now Maddie (who will be FOUR YEARS OLD next month) is going to provide some wisdom to you!
WISDOM FROM MADDIE:
1.) One thing I want to tell you is that I hope you look cute.
2.) I hope you feel the softness of your lovely blanket and your lovely rug.
3.) Advice I want to give you is I hope you are a bird baby.
4.) I want to say I hope you're going to love your home that's a nest.
5.) And I hope you have a lovely birthday and a party hat for the birthday bird.
6.) I love you, Cecily!
I don't exactly know why she thinks you're going to be a bird. We're pretty up front with Maddie about biology. But in any case, she is very excited that you're joining us soon!
So am I. I am a box full of aches and pains these days, but it's a good reminder that you're going to be here SOON. Soon, soon. And here's some really great news: YOU AREN'T BREECH ANYMORE! Nope, your little feet are wedged up in my ribs, and your head bangs against my cervix like a golden hammer of pain. Dr. Austin confirmed it. So good work, Cecily!
On Monday, I had my 32 week OB appointment, and I took a walk with your brother and sister beforehand. You're going to live in such a pretty part of the world, Cecily.
And here's the hospital you'll be born in!
This is you right now. My feet are nowhere to be seen.
And this is the rug I'm working on, that Maddie mentioned earlier.
We love you, and are SO excited to meet you!
