My dear Embreu,
Well, week 13 has come and past awfully quickly. Week 40 still seems like an eternity away, but I am quite sure it will arrive before Daddy or I realize it.
I don't want you to feel any pressure, but you should realize as quickly as possible that you are going to be a Cardinal's fan. This is a genetic imperative, handed down on both sides of your family. There is no escaping it, even though you may try. Even if you only have lukewarm feelings about baseball, when you see those boys in red take the field, you will realize why baseball is the national past time.
The Cardinals, currently, are two wins away from going to the World Series. This past Monday night, they pulled out a thrilling win at the very end of the game. Mommy, unfortunately, had decided that the game was over and that it was time to sleep. These days, your Mommy really likes to sleep.
Daddy called on the phone just after the game ended. And I am still kicking myself for not staying away 10 minutes longer to watch the end of the game. Mommy has learned her lesson, and will be trying very hard to stay up tonight and tomorrow night to watch all the way through to the end.
Other than that, this week has been pretty uneventful. You are starting to pooch my belly out pretty good now, which is kinda fun to watch. But, it makes picking clothes to wear kinda hard. My staples for work now are any skirt that's got an elastic waistband.
Well, our next appointment with the Captain will be on the 27th. Which will be the start of Week 16. And then the NEXT visit after that we get to find out if you are a little boy or a little girl. Won't that be exciting???
