A letter to my little girl.


To mommy's "love",

I remember writing you a letter when you were due in 10 weeks. Now, you're due into this world in about 10 days. 10 DAYS. I know right now I seem oh so impatient about those 10 days, and I tell you daily that you are welcome 'out' here. But, the truth is-I know that you'll be here in no time. It will all go by so fast, and probably seem like a blur.

But, I want to remember every detail.

Every little moment that made your labor and birth special.

Unique.

I want to remember your first cries and the e.x.a.c.t. feelings I have when they lay you on my chest for the first time.

I'm so scared of time passing too quickly. Right now, I'm wishing the days away. When you finally arrive, I hope that every single moment s l o w s down.

I want to take it all in.

Because I already know how special you are.

Do you have any idea just how loved you are, little girl?

We wanted you soooo desperately.
You are the first little munchkin that will make me a mother.

"Mama".

I want to remember every sweet smile and coo. I'll be taking waytoomany photos of you, I hope you're ready, and not camera shy.

I cannot wait to watch your Daddy melt into a pile of love-mush when he holds you for the first time. It makes me cry just thinking about it.

He's going to the best dad, and I hope you always see that and feel his love and protection.

You're also so loved by your heavenly Father, too. He formed you in my womb-and made you, you.

I'll try my best, and do everything I can to be the best mom I can be.

I know I'll mess up...but I can bet you one thing---you'll always feel loved.

You're welcome to enter into this world any day now sweet, love. We're overjoyed at the thought of "meeting" you and welcoming you into our family.

Until you decide to show your face and get things rockin' and rollin' in there---just keep working on forming the cutest chubby cheeks ever, and being you.

Because, "you" are all we want.
Love you, sweet one.

    Thank you for sharing this journey with all of us, even with people you don't know outside of the interwebs (like me!). It's been so wonderful to have you post about every aspect of your pregnancy. You'll be meeting your little girl in no time and I can't wait for you to introduce all of us to her :)

  12. Oh my goodness! That was beautiful. I'm crying for you! You will never get those first moments again, so cherish them! My little one turns one next week and just today I was crying getting her dressed because I promise you. Two seconds ago, she was a newborn and in 2 more seconds, well be on our way to kindergarten. Hold tight to every little snuggle, noise and sleepless night. It flies.

  25. What a sweet letter! It made me tear up. I hope you print this out and keep it some place special and let her read it when she's older. I know she'd appreciate it! You're going to be a fantastic mother.

  26. Aw Katie, this made me cry! I need to do something like this before Caleb gets here. And when are you going to announce Little Miss' name?! I'm dying over here!

    On a side note, yes, the strawberry pop tarts with the frosting and sprinkles...mmmmm, they hit the spot last night for sure!

    And LOL at the cleaning! Just like Jon did when I told him we had to go to the hospital! Wonder if all the activity got you any more progress?!

    It seriously does feel like we are going to be pregnant forever, but like you said in your letter, our babies will be here before we know it. We'll blink....and they will be here.

    PS-We went to Barnes and Noble today after our appt (I had to pick up 'Baby's First Year' to start reading) and I thought of you! I took a picture that I will post at some point so you can see why I thought of you. Because no, I'm not some crazy stalker woman :)

  28. My name is Christine, and an art teacher for grades: preschool through eighth at two Catholic schools. On the other side of PA.(Franklin & Oil City)

    God Bless You. Please remember to "cherish" every growing moment. After fifteen years of marriage, in late Feb. of 1999, I was finally pregnant. WOW. Gabrielle is now ten years old and in the fourth grade. WHERE DID THE TIME GO??? She is the BEST decision that my husband and I had ever made. God has blessed us with a beautiful and loving daughter.

    When she was 21 one montns old. I just picked her up from child care after school. This was the afternoon before the "big day,
    9-11"(September 11, 2001) Both Gabrielle and I were in a head-on collision about a mile and a half from our home. My father-in-law, believe it or not was TWO cars behind me. Which I did not know at the time. My husband was in the state of Ohio for a business conference. (This of course, is what family and friends told me later.) I was life-flighted to Pittsburgh. In a coma for nine days, and in Harmerville-Rehab for two and half months. Sorry, I need to stop. GOD blessed our family. So with us not having a baby until I was 35 and Kevin,36. My TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) from the car accident and docter orders not to return to work again until September of 2003, put a big damper on any more babies. However, God had blessed us with, Gabrielle, and we are very, very HAPPY with our threesome. Oops, sevensome. Two dogs and two birds, should also be included. Congrats, and can't wait to see some photos of your beautiful newborn daughter. GOD IS GOOD.
