Dearest little bean,
Just your mama here, writing you another little note while you kick and punch away! You’re quite the little hiccup-er these also…makes me giggle sometimes.
We’re getting so much closer to meeting you, but I feel like your little personality shines through, even in the womb. You’re a feisty one who does NOT like to be disturbed when you’re resting. Just like mama!
Tomorrow is a baby shower with dad’s family in honor of you! I’m so excited and I know you’re ready to party!
Last weekend, dad and I took a little trip over to Grand Haven on Lake Michigan. I think it’s probably one of my favorite places in Michigan, so far…It has the most beautiful beach that makes me homesick for the west coast, but fulfills my need for the “sea”! Dad and I can’t wait to take you and Brennan there in the summer…we talked about camping and renting a cottage and just up and moving there in general…it’s SO beautiful! Mama got a little sad about the fact that you won’t really know much about the west coast that she loves so much, but at least we can show you places like this to help bridge the gap…
We just walked and enjoyed our time. Little moments with dad always remind me of how much I really love that man. He’s just so special to me and always makes me smile.
We also had some pictures taken by our sweet friends, Lauren and Robbie. We had a ton of fun, but dad was making me laugh so hard all the time with his inappropriate jokes. I’ve only seen a few shots so far, but seeing our love in photos is awesome. So glad we have these to remember this special time.
I’ll leave the rest of this letter to photos. Just some random shots from our little trip…

|Mama loves vintage signs! Like this one on the old theater that is now a restaurant.|
|Your dad is so silly! Acting like a giant, ice-aged beaver in the history museum…|
|We just love this town.|

I know you’re in there getting dolled-up for your big debut and we just can’t wait! Just let us finish your room first.
