Letter to my unborn child...
I can't stop staring at your u/s picture. I can't stop day-dreaming about how you'll look, your features, your fingertips, if you'll be long-legged like your Mommy or long-torso'd like your Daddy. I wonder what your voice, your cry, will sound like. If you'll be a fussy baby, or easy to please (I won't complain for either!).
I wonder if you'll be a Daddy's Girl or a Mommy's Boy (just gotta hold out about 7-8 more weeks to know!!) and whether you'll be a shy little Cashew, or an independent nut!
I'm so, so eager and excited to hold you in my arms, smell your sweetness, feel your smooth baby-skin but at the same time, I will cherish this time that I carry you inside. I know it will only happen once, before you join us out in the world, and I feel so lucky that I was chosen to keep you safe and sound for nine months. I wish that Daddy could get to experience this part of the pregnancy as well, I hate for him to feel left out. So I promise to keep him as informed as possible of every little change my body goes through...and then down the road when I can finally feel you, to make sure he gets to feel you move too. We both wait excitedly, patiently, for that day.
Until then, I will continue to hold my hand to my belly and send you lots of loving, healthy energy. I will continue to dream about you and what you look like. I will continue to love you more and more every day as you grow bigger and stronger. Until then...keep growing my little Love!
Love you Always,
