It’s late and I should be getting ready for bed, but I realized it’s already been a week since I last wrote anything to you. I need to do better about making time for this.
And what a big week it’s been! We first listened to your heartbeat a couple of days ago when we visited the doctor. You couldn’t see, but your mom looked so pretty when her face lit up the first time we heard your thumping heart. It was beating fast like a rabbit’s, which is good. That’s how it’s supposed to sound now. We were grinning like a couple of yokels.
We visited the midwife today to start preparing for things we’ll need to do to bring you into the world. It’s a lot to keep track of, but it will all be ready in time. It’s going to be my job to make sure your mom gets all the support she needs when you’re making your way out.
Next week I’ll meet with a group of new dads so I can get some tips on how to take care of you. They call it “Bible Study” even though there won’t be any Bibles there. One day I’ll explain to you why that’s funny.
