39 weeks

12.21.2011

My Dear Baby,

Whether this letter is premature or we still have a few weeks to go, I have to take a moment while all is calm and quiet to tell you a few things.

With each passing day, I truly feel as though you are getting closer and closer to your debut. While this is obvious, it means that our precious time with you inside of me is coming to an end. I would have it no other way but I want to thank you for this time. I have never felt healthier, more beautiful, more powerful, or more blessed. I know that on the day you are born, these feelings will be magnified and multiplied. From that point on you will be part of this great world and all that have been awaiting your arrival will be able to shower you with constant love.

Beyond wanting a baby, I have realized that I want everything else, too. I want the first day of kindergarten, loose teeth, back to school shopping, the teenage years, the tearful goodbye on the first day of college, first love and beyond. I look forward to all that your future holds.

Thank you for this time. It has been beautiful and it is just the beginning.

See you soon.

Love,
Mama

  1. This post was so perfectly timed. I think he must have known that you were ready for him! I can't wait to meet your newest lifelong love. He's a very lucky boy to have parents like Tim and you.
