Dear Jude

Written April 17, 2012, 11pm

Dear Jude,
    My sweet Jude... Jude Maximus.  Today we named you.  We had an ultrasound today and got to see you.  We learned you were a boy.  We couldn't stop smiling.

    I had a feeling you were a girl until last night.  Last night as I was watching tv and I saw two brothers that were really close, I thought about how I wanted you to be a boy so you could bond with your big brother Jack, like only brothers do.  Then I saw another show about some volunteers at St. Jude's... it's a children's hospital.  They kept saying the name JUDE JUDE JUDE.   It was like a giant red flag in my intuitive- this must be a sign- mind.  I turned to your Dad and said, "Joel, I think it's a boy.  I just have this weird feeling all the sudden."  And last night the feeling grew... it was so intense I just knew you were a boy.  And this morning, your Dad came out of the shower, being goofy as always and started singing... "my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard..." and I laughed and said we needed to stop to get me a milkshake before the ultrasound so you would be nice and wiggly.  And I pointed out...  it was another sign, BOY! haha  Your Dad thinks I'm crazy.

    I baked your Daddy a birthday cake tonight with your big brother... I ate the last little bit of icing and you are wiggling like crazy right now.  You must be a vanilla icing fan too.

    Jude, I am so excited!  I wish you could have seen the smile on your Dad's face today at the ultrasound, he was so ridiculously happy and proud.  Your big brother doesn't quite yet understand what a brother is yet, but he knows you are a baby and you're going to be his friend that he can play with.

     So I guess that's it for now.  Jack asks all the time when you're going to be born... we are all excited to meet you!
                                                                                             See you soon,
                                                                                                  Love always,
