The last 38 weeks have been the most rewarding, mysterious, momentous days of my life. From a young age, before it was even acceptable to consider being a mother, I knew it was everything I ever wanted along with being a wife to your wonderful daddy. God has answered my prayers. I have spent the last 9 months thanking Him for this experience of carrying you safe inside my belly. From staring at that stick reading back "Pregnant" in disbelief, to the tears shed when I saw your sweet, jellybean sized self on the ultrasound for the first time, to the moment I heard your steady heartbeat, to watching blue balloons fly out of the box, to choosing your name with daddy, feeling your swift kicks and rolls and decorating your sweet space in our home - it has been the most amazing journey and it's only just begun!
I have dreamt of the moment the nurses hand you over to me and our life begins together. It brings tears to my eyes. I never imagined I could feel a love like this and I know that is only going to grow stronger once you are here in my arms. Daddy and I have spent the last 9 month preparing for you and we are unbelievably ready when you are little man.
Mommy loves you. You will always be my first baby containing a special, sacred place in my heart.
