Dear Sweet Little Boy

Dear Sweet Little Boy,

I’ve been meaning to write this for quite some time. To let you know one day, how much Mommy and Daddy love you already, how we would do anything for you, how we want nothing but the best for you, and how excited we are that you are going to be ours. I don’t think there are enough ways to say that we love you. Or enough hours in a day that I think about how much we can’t wait to hold you, kiss you, snuggle you. I never knew the amount of love and joy someone I’ve never met could bring to my life. You have changed my life forever…and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

The months leading up to your arrival have been filled with smiles, laughter, fear, and much anticipation. It might sound a little selfish, but I cherish this time that I have you all to myself. To be with you all day, to feel your every movement, to feel every hiccup. Even though I’m going to miss this time, I can’t wait to experience everything else life has in store for you. And I will be right there with you through it all.

This world can be crazy, scary, and beautiful all at the same time and we want you to be able to experience it as much as you can. Saying that, there are some things we want you to know.

 

Have faith. 

Be kind. Be generous. Be loving. Be helpful.

We are your #1 fans and biggest supporters.

Believe in yourself.  

It’s okay to lose. Pick yourself up and keep trying to be your best. 

Be passionate about something.

Show emotion and say how you feel.

Know that it’s okay to ask for help.

Dance. {If you’re anything like your Dad, this won’t be difficult for you.}

Read.

Be creative. 

Have integrity, determination, and compassion.

Always be polite and have good manners.

Treat others how you would like to be treated.

Being different is not a bad thing. {How boring would life be if everyone were the same.}

Love full heartedly. 

Play outside. {The best stories and memories don’t come from a television screen.} 

Laugh and smile.

Be yourself.

 

I look forward to holding you, hugging you, kissing you.

I look forward to your belly laughs and chubby cheeks.

I look forward to your little fingers and toesies.

I look forward to our time alone as a little family.

I look forward to sharing you with the world.

I look forward to being your Mommy.

 

Please cut us a little slack – we are first timers at this whole parenting thing. We’ll be learning together and I can promise you that we will give you nothing but our best. You have filled our lives with a new sense of love that cannot be measured.  You are a blessing. We’re ready to meet you sweet little boy, so take your time and come when you’re ready, but feel free to see us soon 🙂

We love you forever and for always.

– Mommy
