Letters to Baby R Vol. 1 & 2

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

First and foremost, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who sent such sweet and wonderful comments, emails, tweets to me the other day. I seriously was so overcome with love from all of the support from our big announcement. I am almost done responding to those emails, and have re-read those amazing comments so many times. Seriously, many thanks, we are so blessed! 


I wanted to start a little series of letters that I've been writing to our baby and post them every couple of weeks. This is such a special time for me, and I have so many thoughts on my mind lately, and want to remember this time. 



Letter 1
(Written on 9.20.12)
Dear Baby,

Today you are 9 weeks! I cannot believe you have been in my belly for that long. Yesterday we got to see you on the big screen for the first time, and your Mama and Daddy's heart just sank. We are absolutely in love with you already. We got to hear your heartbeat (which was a strong 177), see your little body, and find out exactly how old you are. You surprised us a little, as we didn't realize you have been cooking in there for 2 extra weeks. This puts your due date at April 25th! We thought you were going to be a Cinco de Mayo baby, but that's okay, as long as you still like Mexican food one day, we'll be happy to hold you two weeks early :) Mama is a little nervous about what is to come, and Daddy is nervous about balancing his school work/clinical years, but we just know you are going to be an amazing addition to our family and will bring us so much happiness and love. Keep growing strong and healthy in there, we cannot wait to feel you move around soon enough. We love you so much!

Love,
Mama



Letter 2
Dear Baby,

Yesterday (10/15) we got to see you on the screen for the second time! I knew my heart would grow more, but you really made my heart melt this time. Seeing and hearing that you are doing great and looking healthy brought tears to my eyes. Your Daddy just about jumped out of his seat when he realized you were flapping your arms and legs. You are already so active (with a heartbeat of 165) and I cannot wait to feel those movements! Of all of the pictures the tech gave us, this one is my favorite. You are so sprawled out and look like you are comfy in there. Baby, you are so loved already and our family and friends cannot wait to meet you. The response from our expecting announcement was phenomenal, and I hope to show you all the sweet comments you've received when you're older. We love you so much!

Love,
Mama

  26. These are seriously so sweet. They even brought tears to my eyes and babies aren't even something I think about, really (I'm not huge on the baby train yet).

    But seeing your sweet heart and love for your future child is really moving. I hope that you keep these and give them to your baby someday. Gifts like these are priceless.

    So happy for your new adventure! :)
