Dear Baby Girl,

I’m writing this to you, not yet a parent, but as close to a parent as I’ve ever been. I’m overwhelmed with all sorts of emotions regarding what’s to come in just five months. I have twenty weeks of my normal life. Life as I’ve known it for twenty years. But I am so anxious for my new life to finally begin. I can now feel you move around on a daily basis... kicking and squirming almost hourly. I am ecstatic and so anxious to meet you, but at the same time terrified of the challenges and hardships that are to come. I think about you constantly in all sorts of ‘what if’ situations. I must have thought up just about every scenario possible by now. I already have so much love for you, it's crazy; hard to imagine that it could grow anymore. With all of these emotions streaming through my body each day, I somehow have a sense of peace about me. I know that this is the right thing and that you are part of me for a reason. Daddy and I are so excited and preparing in every way possible for you to finally get here. Until I’m holding you in my arms, I will continue to feel everything imaginable: scared, thrilled, worried, restless, overjoyed, antsy. And I’m sure all these emotions won’t just be lifted once you’re here; only magnified with a whole different batch of feelings to cushion what the future holds. But until then, just know that we love you Sweet Baby!

Love,
Mommy

I loved that! It sums it up exactly how it is. Its hard to imagine how its going to be when they get here.But, it is a million times better than you can imagine. I never thought I could love someone as much as I love my kids. Having a family is an amazing gift.

She will be here before you know it! Congratulations again! You need to email me your address so I can send her something! britjo20@hotmail.com
