Dear Little One,
Where do I even begin? I sit here on a freezing cold day and all I can think about is sharing it with you and your wonderful daddy. If you were here this very second, we would be snuggled up on the couch reading book after book and watching the wind swirl the snow around outside. You will like to read right? After all, you come from a long line of avid readers. I already have all sorts of books waiting for you. I hope you love to read.
It is crazy to think how much you have changed our small world already. Daddy and I are busy making lists of things we want to accomplish before you are born. We have to gut the room that will be your nursery and do a bunch of small things around the house to make sure it is all ready for you. We also want to make sure our veggie garden is planted. Mommy and daddy are so excited to have fresh homegrown veggies this year. I also can't wait to show you around the garden once you arrive. I have a feeling you will love spending time in our backyard, curled up on a blanket, enjoying the shade of one of our big maple trees.
All day long I wonder what it will be like to hold you. I have dreamt of you for so long, little one. I can't wait to smell your smell, feel your soft skin, and see you looking at me. I can't wait to hear that first cry, knowing that you are finally here with us. I have been enjoying these past months of getting to know you as you grow within me, but I cannot wait to experience you face-to-face. I get the chills just thinking about it. God has truly blessed us. I am so thankful for all that He has given us.
I also can't wait to share with you the love that our Heavenly Father has for us. For you. I can't wait to tell you about the struggle that daddy and I had as we patiently waited for God's perfect timing. Little one, God is always faithful. He always provides. He never stops loving us. I can't wait to show you that. I can't wait to see you grow in your faith with our amazing God. To Him be all the glory, honor, and praise. Little one, He has loved you long before I was able to. Always know that He loves you.
I know that meeting you for the first time is still months away, but I can't help but dream of you my precious baby. Just know that your mommy and daddy love you very much. You are the answer to many, many prayers. We love you.
