It feels like it was just weeks ago that I came out of the bathroom and told your daddy that another babe would be coming and he stood there elated with tear filled eyes.
Now tomorrow we will rise before the sun, load into the car while your big sister sleeps, and drive to the hospital so we can meet you. We will drive hand in hand eager that in a couple hours of arriving we will meet you face-to-face for the very first time; and with that moment our hearts will be transformed in a way we’ll never be able to describe. A spot in our hearts will form that’s even bigger than it is right now, the moment we hear your sweet cry and see your little face for the first time.
Did you know, sweet boy, that we’ve had your name picked out – just for you – for the last 8+ years? It’s true. We’ve had you in our hearts long before we knew you would truly be on the way.
Oh the exciting things in life for you to be met with. A daddy that can’t wait to teach you all of the things he knows and pass them onto you, just like your grandpa did for him as a boy. He’s a good one, that daddy of yours – full of drive and a heart bigger than you’ll ever realize for the three of us. You’ve got a big sister that is full of sass but has the sweetest heart I’ve ever seen in a two-and-a-half year old. Oh sweet boy, I cannot wait for the moment you meet her! We’ve been talking about you for months and she’s got your name downpat now and you’ve even got a nickname or two already. I imagine she will want to hold you the moment she lays eyes on you and not ever want to give you back. As for me, sweet boy, I’ve spent the last nine months having your grow inside of me – the jabs and the kicks – trying to picture what you will look like and what your personality will be filled with. I can’t wait to have you in my arms tomorrow and so many of my questions beginning to find answers.
See you soon, B.
