FC: 0-3 Months | Michael Robert Jenkins
1: See tiny fingers and tiny toes, Bright baby eyes, cute baby nose; Hear baby gurgles and baby sighs, As Mom and Dad sing lullabies. Life is changed, but that's okay; It's fun to spend glad hours each day, Taking time for all the good That comes along with parenthood. By Joanna Fuchs
2: At first you moved but only a little.. I could always find you right in the middle. As time went on you really started to grow. It wasn't a whole lot, in fact, it was rather slow. Before I knew it, you were all over the place.It kind of felt like, you were running a race. | People would ask me if you were a boy or a girl. I would sit and wonder if you would have curls. There were so many things I really wanted to know. But you were hidden inside the answers didn't show. How much will you weight? How tall will you be? What color is your hair? Will you even like me? I hope and pray you feel like you belong. | I never want you to feel like you are alone. You, my dear child,were made straight from our hearts. In about a week or so,I'll meet you, for the first time.For you are the product,of your Dad's love and mine. There will be no one like you,not any place in the world | It really doesn't matter if you area boy or a girl. We are both so happy that you even exist. The gender doesn't matter you'll be hard to resist. I hope I make you proud that I am your mother everyday. Because you have filled my dreams in more ways than words can say.
3: It won't be long before, I can look you in the eyes. I can feel the excitement growing, I know I'm going to cry. Don't worry my angel, those tears will be of joy. It won't matter to me, if you are a girl or a boy.
4: We decided on the name Michael Robert Michael is after daddy, "Michael Shane Jenkins", and paternal grandfather "Kenneth Michael Jenkins". Robert is after maternal grandfather "Robert Lee Johnson". These are the men who will be role models throughout life. Baby Michael will know them as Daddy, Papaw Jenkins, and Papaw Johnson | Namesake...
5: We immediately thought Baby Jenkins looks like daddy! | 10 weeks before birth. Already so big!!
6: Mommy and Daddy planned the nursery through out the entire pregnancy! We started out with hand-me-down furniture.. Originally, the furniture were gifts for Aunt Cindy. The crib & chest, rocking chair, and changing table were gifts from Mommy's Mamaw Johnson, Granny Snow, and Mom. It was so meaningful to start the nursery with such sentimental pieces. Next, we found the giraffe bedding and instantly new that was the bedding for our little baby. Finally, we topped off the nursery decor with items from family and friends to make it just perfect for Baby Michael! | It's a Jungle Out There...
