oh, sweet child o' mine

Dear Baby,

If there were words to express how happy your dad and I are about you getting to come to us, I'd use them. We have wanted you, and hoped for you, and prayed for you and we love you. Carrying you has been one of the best things I have ever experienced in my life. I wouldn't trade these last nine (ten) months for anything in the world.

That being said, if you haven't noticed yet, you are all out of room inside of me. There is simply no more space for you to grow. I know we've thought this before and somehow it has worked out, but I'm pretty sure my skin and organs are at their absolute limit this time. So, please do me a favor -do us both a favor- and just come out already!!!

Can't wait to meet you face to face!

The hardest part for me is waiting to meet the new person in my life. I love meeting new people and making new friends and babies are the ultimate new person.

So from the moment I find out I'm pregnant until the moment I see their face I'm wondering... what color of hair, how long will their fingernails be, what will their eyes look like. Will my baby be fussy or happy or quiet.

I'm so excited for you!!!!

We can't wait to see him, either!!!

PLEASE print this off and save it for him... you should do it with all your baby blogs!

Erin said...

Good luck to you over the next couple of weeks. It is such a sweet and exciting time.

I was always amazed when they did come, how did they ever fit in my body!

Kazzy said...

I am excited for you and your hubby. Best of luck.

You're letters to Will are so neat. Meaganis is right you should print all of these and put them in his baby book. Isn't it amazing what our bodies can do through the birthing process? Our Heavenly Father knows us well and knew we could it and even love doing it! What is the prognosis on delivery? Are you still on for the 21st? or was it the 24th? I am hoping it is sooner for you. Love you
