Dear Baby Hawley,

I am so excited to be able to say Hi to you!  I learned today, after a few days of wondering, that you are on the way!

Unlike with your older sister, not much changed in my life when you were conceived.  So far, I have not been super-tired, I have not yet craved any foods, and I haven't had to change my gym routines.  All of those were tip-offs that Catherine was on the way.  You, however, have slipped into our lives quietly.  I wonder how long that will last?

I have decided to not tell your dad about you quite yet - Catherine and I ordered a shirt for her that says, "I'm going to be a big sister."  When it arrives, she will put it on and surprise him with the message.  I know he will be as happy about you as I am today.

While Catherine is too young to understand that you are on the way, I can tell you that she loves babies.  She has begun to carry her baby doll around the house and gets excited when we see babies as we are out and about.  She is going to be a great big sister and I am glad that you two will be close in age.  You really will get to grow up together.

I'm looking forward to sharing the news of you with everyone - and meeting you in a few short months.

I love you already, Little One,
