You already amaze me. Inside, you are always calm and gentle and I feel like I already know you a little. Your dad and I are so excited to meet you! We have an amazing birth experience planned for you. Even if things don’t go exactly how we picture, know that we are bringing you into this world with so much love.
Today, you and I snuggled in the sun on a blanket in our yard. I can’t wait to show you the flowers and grass, and have you feel the breeze on your skin for the first time. There is a lot going on in our world that is scary… but as I drove down the coast tonight and watched the sun set in a misty far away fog, I relished that there is still so much beauty.
Our home and lives aren’t perfect – so get used to a little chaos, some messes, and some big emotions. Your dad and I love each other very much, yet sometimes our opinions and strong feelings get in the way. We’re going to do our best to create a warm, creative, active childhood for you and fill up your life with bright ideas, imagination, and a love for nature.
You’ll be here before we know it- maybe in just a few weeks! And, we are about as ready as we could be. We don’t know what kind of baby you’ll be – will you cry and fuss? Will you be calm and observant? However you are, you are free to be that little person. We’re going to love you no matter what. We’re getting excited now. I have a feeling you’ll be here early – what do you think? Everyone has taken guesses about when you’ll arrive, but only you know for sure when you’ll be coming! When will be your birthday?
You’ve been so kind to me. I will always be thankful for such an amazing pregnancy – you’ve already made a big impression on me! I’ve tried to take good care of you – I think you might like vegetables… I eat them a lot! And pomegranate juice…
Hudson – I have so much hope and expectancy now. When the time is right, we’ll be ready to receive you!
