A Letter to Baby B

Dear Baby B,

I’ve been laying about during my down time during the last few weeks thinking about how lucky we are to be having you, right now, during this year, in this city, with these friends, and (most of all) with each other.

Your father and I knew shortly after we were married that we wanted our family to grow.  We immediately started making the emotional and intellectual preparations so that you could be our reality.  We are so ready to have you be a part of our little family.  We don’t have all the things you need yet.  In fact, we’ve barely started collecting stuff.  Luckily, you will be very small when you get here, so you won’t be needing very much.  The thing you need most is something we already have in abundance, anyhow.

We have a whole lot of love in this family already.  Sometimes I wonder how I will be able to love a person more than I love your father already, and then you kick to let me know that you’re here already, and I feel a sense of protective love for you that trumps the greatest feelings I believed I could have.  We are each so fortunate to have this bond.  Not every family feels this way, and we work every day to ensure that we don’t take it for granted.

I look forward to the day when you can read this for yourself, understand how much we want each other, and how much we want you to be a part of every moment we’ll share as a family in the future.

Love,

Your Mom
