I have been writing and journaling so I can remember the tiny details of this incredible journey. I wrote this long before we told anyone about our pregnancy. There will be letters to come. We feel so blessed.


Dear Baby S, August 4, 2016, is a day that will always hold a special place in my heart. You see, on this morning before work, this is when I found out about you, and I have to say I didn’t quite believe it. On my lunch break at work, I went and took another pregnancy test to make sure I wasn’t just tired when I read the first test. I could not wait to tell your Dad. Oh Baby S, you have no idea how long he has been waiting for you. Telling your Dad was one of the sweetest moments of my life. His eyes welled up with tears when he heard that great news about You, I’m sure you will see that smile on his face often, in fact you might be the only one to make him smile just like that.
I never knew I could love someone so much but I must say, the day I found out about you, my life changed forever.
I have to say telling your grandparents was quite a privilege. They are elated and ecstatic to meet you. Just you wait Baby S, you are one lucky person. You have four incredible grandparents, with tons of things they can teach you and I know they have tons of love to give you. In fact, you’re getting gifts already! Through various testing and waiting for our first apt to “see” you, we prayed hard for you. We prayed for you to be growing exactly how you should be. August 29, 2016 was one of the best days of my life. Your Dad and I went to the doctor to check on you. It wasn’t even one minute into the apt before they told us Congratulations, there you were! We haven’t heard your heart beat yet, but seeing it on the screen made everything seem so much more real! You are ours! 

April is really not that far away, and I often wonder how and when you will make your appearance. We play different scenarios in our head of what our life will become when you enter this world, and I must say, Your mom is not one for change, but this change is going to be happily accepted. We have to get your room ready, we have tossed around a few ideas for names, and we have talked about what you may look like, all of it is oh so exciting. We love you already!

Your Dad loves you so much Baby S. He talks to you daily, and reminds you to be good to me. You’re going to have the best Dad. He’s been praying for you long before we even knew about you, we’re lucky to have him. I can’t wait for you to meet him. We are getting along pretty well. We are 10 weeks into this journey together along this 40 week trek, I must say I have been awfully tired and you have made food not appealing to me most times. I can’t say I struggle with morning sickness, maybe some nausea at night, but for the most part you’ve been good to me. Most people don’t know about you yet Baby S, but we can’t wait to let the world know that you are coming. For the few people that do know about you, I can say this, you are already so loved! You got your first baby book, a matching shirt to wear with me, and one of the sweetest people in your mom’s life bought you your first Bible. We can’t wait to read it to you and teach you all about Jesus. We pray one day you will grow to love Him. I wonder what your personality will be like? I pray even now for your safety, for you to have a tender spirit, and more than anything I pray that you will know that Your Daddy and I want nothing more than for you to know and experience all God has for you in this crazy world. There’s so much that runs through my mind on a normal day, wondering how you are growing and wondering if you are a boy or a girl. Only one more week and we will hopefully hear your heart beat! You have changed me already Baby S, and this is just the beginning. I feel so blessed that God chose me to be your Mom. I can’t wait to meet you. Love, Mom
