My Dear Little Sweet Potato,
You may or may not be five inches long like Mommy's
app says you are but we will know soon because we
get to see you in exactly ONE week!
Do you know why that is exciting?
Because we get to find out what you are!!
Daddy and I haven't been able to "see" you in about 2 months
because we did not have an ultrasound at Mommy's last appointment.
However, we did get to hear your little heartbeat for the first time!
Your BPM was a whopping 163- which makes a
lot of people think you are a girl.
Here is who thinks what so far:
Mommy and Daddy think you are a boy.
"Aunt" Hannah and Leila think you are a girl.
Your Uncle Chase and Uncle Brett think you are a boy.
Aunt Melly and Lanie have their fingers and toes crossed for a girl.
Mame doesn't know what you are, she just can't wait to monogram something for you! :)
thinks wants you to be a girl.
Aunt Amanda already calls you William.
KiKi & Nanny Anna think you are a boy if I remember correctly.
PopPop wants a girl but thinks you are a boy.
Honey calls you Willie and only buys you boy stuff.
Grams prays every night that you are "strong"- meaning she is praying for a boy.
MawMaw Bezet dreamed already dreamed that you are a girl.
Aunt Nickole says boy.
MeMe Garidel votes Olivia. (I think she really wants to make you a girly blanket!)
So there you have it.
I think it is about 50/50.
Mommy doesn't care what you are I am just so thankful for you and I already love you very much.
Daddy will love you no matter what... as long as you promise to play sports.
We are so excited to be able to call you by your name!
Would you like to know what the options are?
If you are a boy:
William Leo Gravois - after your great grandfathers, Billy Hornsby and Hubert Leo Lincecum.
Also, your Daddy's middle name is Leo and your baby cousin, who is in heaven with your Pa,
is named Will.
So this name is very special.
If you are a girl:
Olivia Kate Gravois, because it is the only girl name your Daddy likes that I approve of and vice versa.
Don't worry, this name is very special too.
Your recent nicknames have been but are not limited to:
Willy Leo (PawPaw)
Willie (Honey and Mommy)
Livy Kate (Daddy)
...and mostly Baby G.
About a week ago Mommy felt you for the first time.
You feel like little bubbles!
I am looking forward to feeling you again, you are still a bit small
so it is only every once in a while that I get to.
No worries though, you are growing fast!
I know this because I can no longer zip any of my jeans!!
Here is how
you Mommy looks right now:
I'm not sure I have any "cravings" but you like to eat grapefruits and tomato soup everyday!
You also love milk but Mommy had to stop drinking so much so she doesn't turn into a whale.
You will get plenty of that soon.
Well, I hope I haven't talked your very tiny developing ears off yet,
because you will need those one day.
