Letter to My Baby

Dear Baby,

Wow, I can’t believe you’re already three months old.  You’re still inside my belly so I guess I don’t officially start counting till you come and meet us.  Oh, and how we can’t wait to meet you!  Your dad and I are very excited to hold you and cuddle with you.  You have a sister who will be just over two and a half years old when you arrive.  She doesn’t quite understand the fact that she’ll have a new sibling around the house soon but we’re working on it.  She’s a sweet girl and I hope the two of you will be great friends.

I can’t wait to spend hours together just cuddling, feeding you, and enjoying life together.  I’m  very excited to be your Mommy.  I can’t promise I’ll be a good mom but I promise I’ll try.  Taking care of you and your sister and teaching the two of you how to take good care of yourselves sounds like the most fun and rewarding thing I could possibly do in my life.  Thank you for helping me fulfill my life’s purpose.

You are going to love your daddy.  He’s fantastic.  He’s a wonderful daddy, so kind, sweet, and supportive.  On top of that, he’s hilarious!  With your daddy in our lives, our days are sure to have lots and lots of laughter and fun.

So, enjoy your last few months comfy and cozy in my belly and know that we love you.  Unconditionally.  You’re part of our family now and no matter what we will always love you.

All my love,

Your Mom

For those of you who may have your heads tilted slightly and are looking at your computer with a funny face…yes, I am pregnant!  Our little family is growing and I couldn’t be more blessed.  Thank you for allowing me to share a little of my joy with you.

A few bloggers and I decided to put together a Letters to our Children blog hop and we hope you’ll enjoy reading these heartfelt letters to our children.  There are several blogs in total and to hop over to the next blog please visit, A Little Oven.

    Congratulations… that is exciting… and you will LOVE reading this letter 10 years from now… I did that when I was pregnant with my now 18 year old and LOVE reading it; he keeps the letter in his room… makes me feel good knowing that he knows he was loved from the start and your little one will feel the same way…. keep on writing… it is worth it down the road….
