8lbs, 6oz.. oh boy! I’m going to be huge!! haha
Since the first day I found out I was pregnant with you, I seriously could not have waited to get a 3D ultrasound!! To make sure all your parts were perfect and to have peace of mind you were ok.
When we found out you were a boy, it was to see what and who you would look like. Basically, your father and I could not decide on a name.. haha! We have two equally great names in mind, one that has been near to me since I was 16.
Finally the time came, I was sure it would help me decide. it. didn’t. I’m more unsure than ever.. haha! Sorry son, this is the true Libra in me - when faced with two equally good decisions, I can’t choose. This is usually when your dad and me will play paper-rock-scissors or I’ll flip a coin. However, in this case, I can’t even commit to that!
On the one hand, if you look like your dad, then the one name is perfect.. but, on the other hand, if you look like me, then the other name will suite you better. Everyone tells me you will grow into your name but somehow that doesn’t seem to be a good enough.. I want you to be unique and who you are meant to be.. not boxed into a personality defined by a name.
I’m not sure why - secretly hoped I guess - but I would have bet my life that you would have looked like your dad, but your face is all me!! You have my nose, lips and chin and look just like my newborn picture.
We don’t know what your eyes will look like because they are still closed.. and everything else, from what we can see, is all your dad - chest, long limbs, long fingers, long, skinny feet. I’m still praying you come out with your dad’s dark Spanish complexion.
So, dad and I are waiting to finally meet you before we give you your name.
Either way, with whatever name we decide, you will be perfect and just who you were meant to be!
