"...this could still be inside you..."
Hello readers and Sofia lovers. I was sitting in the recliner tonight, holding Sofia, and thinking. Out of nowhere I look at my beautiful wife and said to her, "..this could still be inside of you..." Sofia's due date was Nov. 9th, exactly a week from today. We have been blessed with Sofia's presence for 17 days, and it is amazing to think that all the moving, kicking, growing, and hicuping she has been doing could still be going on inside Meghan. If Meg would have gone a complete full term, we would be without Sofia for another week!
As of Monday, she has grown from 5lbs-15oz to 6lbs-10oz and from 18-3/4" to 19-3/4" in just two weeks! Some of the baby clothes you wonderful people have bought that were too big for her little body, now don't seem too far away. I want to say thank you all so much for the baby items, clothes, cards, and emails over the last 17 days. I knew babies made people smile and bring joy, but I never knew there were so many people in our lives that care as much as you all. For this we are eternally thankful and blessed to have you as friends and family.
