Dear Baby


Hi sweetie, it’s your mommy.  I’ve been carrying you in my womb for almost 8 month now.  It seems like an eternity, but it will be over before we know it.  I can’t wait to see you on the outside; I’ve been picturing what you will look like lately and there’s no doubt in my mind that you will be one handsome little boy.  With all the heartburn that I’m experiencing, you’re bound to have a full head of gorgeous hair (my guess is that it will be a dark brown).

We’ve seen your face on the ultrasound pictures, and I can tell you will look a lot like your older sister.  She’s pretty great and we know you’re going to love her.  Ella loves to kiss you and tell you that she loves you and she’s already practicing for your arrival by singing and reading to her baby dolls.  Most of all, she is a funny girl who will make you laugh, and she’s also a sweetheart who will give you a hug and a kiss when you need it the most.  You two are going to be best friends, I just know it.  I’m so excited to see the bond grow between the both of you.

Besides your sister, there’s someone else who’s thrilled to meet you.  Your dad.  Your father is amazing.  He is thoughtful and fun to be around.  Ella loves his horsey rides, and I have a feeling you’ll love them too.  He’s going to teach you all about music, and I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as he does.  Your dad can’t wait to let you sleep on his chest with your legs tucked in and your arms stretched out.  He’s excited to eventually play catch with you and all those wonderful things that dads do with their sons.  He is so proud of you already.  Your dad will always love you, and he will always be there for you.

We can’t wait for you to join our family.  You will complete us.  I have a feeling that you have a soft-spoken nature, but will love to laugh relentlessly.  It’s just a mother’s intuition, but I’m ready for you to surprise me too.  No matter the person you end up becoming, I will love you will all my heart and soul and there is nothing that you could ever do that would cause me to love you less.  Someday when you become a parent, you’ll understand how great that love truly is.

This journey of carrying you has been difficult, but it is a small price to pay to hold you in my arms.  When I carried you in my womb I struggled with trusting God; I’ve never prayed so hard in my life, and because of that I’m finding such an amazing peace.  Above anything else I want you to know your heavenly father.  He is so good.  He has plans for your life that will prosper you and give you a hope and a future.  There will be moments in your life when you don’t understand why God let’s certain things happen; sometimes I still have my doubts, and I still don’t understand.  One thing I know beyond a shadow of a doubt is that God will never leave us or forsake us.  A verse that has been written on my heart for you is from Romans 8:38-39

For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

You are loved.  That’s one thing that I need you to hide in your heart.

I thank God everyday that He blessed me with the privilege of  being your mommy. I love you very much and can’t wait to kiss your sweet cheeks.
