I wrote this letter on March 27, 2011. I will include it in the baby book.
Dear Baby Surprise,
Only 6 more weeks until I get to meet you. I can't believe how fast the time has gone. I actually didn't even know you were growing inside of me until you were 13 weeks. The minute I saw you on the ultrasound I couldn't believe it! You captured my heart!
We named you Baby Surprise because we didn't find out about you right away- surprise! Also, this whole time we don't know if you are a boy or a girl. We can't wait to find out.
I have felt really good this whole pregnancy. The hardest thing was that I really am craving sweet things and I can eat breakfast all day. I have a really hard time making dinners and I'd rather eat out!
Shrade calls you "Baby Prize." I'm trying to get him excited about being a big brother.
One of the most special parts about being pregnant is feeling you move. I love to see your little body moving inside of me! I wonder what you are doing. I will really miss that. I feel so close to you and I just thank God for allowing me to be your mommy.
I cannot wait to hold you in my arms and look into your eyes, kiss your face and cuddle close. I am looking forward to being your mommy. I pray for you all the time and I pray that God will help me to be the best mommy for you.
I have SO much to do to get ready for you. I am trying to move out all of Shrade's things and bring in all the baby stuff. You will have a special place just for you!
I can't wait to see you and hold you for the first time. I want to know if you are a boy or a girl and give you the special name that we have chosen for you.
I'm so excited and I cry for joy at the anticipation of welcoming you into our little family.
Thank you, God, for this new little one!
I love you, sweetie! Love, Mommy
