A letter to my baby boy....
I am enjoying every moment I get to carry you in my belly, little man. I am loving every single motion from within that you make. I've taken to calling you my little "Ninja" and Daddy has already started talking about signing you up for Karate, when you are old enough. (Maybe we're jumping the gun a bit, we should probably wait till you can at least walk before discussing this?). I have gone from feeling just your punches and jabs, to now enjoying your kicks as well. You are so active! It makes me wonder if you'll be sporty or athletic as you get older, like your Dad? Or maybe you will take after Mommy's creative side, and be colorful and imaginative and spin stories from your fingertips?
We are just so excited by every little thing about you. I found out you now have eyebrows and I don't know why, but this tickles me! You rock out in my belly now when we put on Staind and this makes me giggle, each and every time. I can't stop putting my hand on my tummy now, hoping to feel your movements on the outside. You are getting stronger and stronger every day so while the outside feelings are few and far between, I know it's only a matter of time. You kicked so hard yesterday that I was convinced the kitty, Molly--who was cuddled up tight against me--could feel you, but she never even flinched. Or maybe she is just as comforted by your movements as I am!
I sing to you sometimes while driving in the car, and I randomly tear up and feel the need to tell you often how much I love you. I know you can hear me and even if you don't understand my words yet, I know you can feel my love radiating inward, like warm sunlight. It's pretty powerful and overwhelms me!
I was thinking the other day about your hair color. I wonder if you'll be a blond baby with big curls, like your Daddy was as a child...or will you be bald with a few scarce patches of dark brown hair, like Mommy? I am so excited to find out! I'm so eager to see your face, to run my finger tip across your cheek. You'll have to forgive Mommy, becuz I am crying again, but don't worry--they are only happy tears! I've started telling anyone that will listen the new location of my heart...it is nestled warm and snug in my belly. It's you.
I love you so much, baby boy. Daddy and I can't wait to meet you in early August!!
I love you to infinity and beyond,
I love you, I love you, I love you!
