Dear Baby


Dear Baby,

Today is your due date!  Can you believe it?  You have been busy growing, developing, and chunking up for the last 40 weeks!  And you must be very comfortable in there because you are showing no signs of wanting to make your debut any time soon.  But that's ok.  I know I will get to meet you so very soon and in the meantime, we get to share secrets, like when you decide to stretch and kick or when I want to sing you a little song.  Only the two of us know...and that makes me smile.  

Of course, I can't wait to actually "meet" you.  We gotten to know each other so well over the past 10 months, but I have no idea what you look like.  What color will your eyes be?  Will you have lots of hair?  Will you get your dad's ears?  Also, what kind of boy will you be?  Your dad jokes that you'll be a quiet little bookworm, but if you're anything like your dad, you will be outgoing, energetic and I'm guessing pretty hyper!  ;)  

I wonder what sports you'll love to play and how you'll do in school.  Will you love to build legos like your dad or will you like to read and draw like me?  Who will be your favorite super hero and will you wear a cape like your dad did when he was little?


I hope I can be the mom that you like to hang out with and share secrets with.  The kind of mom who lets you play in the mud and catch frogs.  And maybe scuff a knee or two after you've learned to ride your bike.  The kind of mom that makes good school lunches and lets you stay up late every now and then!  The kind of mom you still like to cuddle with at the end of the day and share your adventures with while you're young and old.

I can't wait to share your first Christmas and first birthday and create traditions over the years that make you excited about passing them along to your children one day.  I can't wait to pin your boutonniere for your first dance, cheer for you in the stands as you make your first goal/homerun/touchdown {whatever your sport of choice may be}, and hear about your first crush!  There's so much I can't wait to learn about you and I hope I'm the kind of mom that you allows you to explore, discover, and learn along the way.  


One thing I know for sure is that you'll have the kindest heart, just like your dad.  You have so many people around you that love you to pieces already and you'll get to grow up in one of the most beautiful areas in the world...Lake Tahoe!  How lucky are you?

So even though you must be super comfy in there...and even though you might want to stay put for a little while longer, we really can't wait for the moment you decide to make your first appearance so we can hold you in our arms and give you your first kiss.  I honestly cannot believe your dad and I made you and that we get to keep you once you get here.  And we vow to be the very best parents you can have and love you to no end.  So get ready for the ride ahead little guy...we're going to have a lot of fun together!  Now we just need you to show up!

All my Love,

Mom
