Dear Baby Boy,
Tomorrow I will be 38 weeks pregnant. I’m not sure when you’re coming, so I wanted to go ahead and write this little note to you.
My biggest prayer for our labor and delivery is that we will both be healthy when all is said and done. That’s all my “birth plan” entails – a healthy baby and mommy.
Your daddy and I prayed and waited for you for a long time and are so excited to meet you. You have loved hearing your daddy’s voice from inside the womb, so I can’t wait to see the two of you together. I know you will take good care of each other and of me. I feel like one lucky lady to be blessed by the two of you.
One thing you should know about our family is that we are a team. Your daddy and I are a team, and this year we have added you and Zoey (the dog) to our team. We stick together. We always look out for each other. We make decisions together. We have fun together and we fight together. If someone messes with one of us, they mess with all of us. Don’t ever forget that we will support you and be on your team always. You may not like our decisions as parents but we are always doing what is best for you.
I pray that you lead a life filled with health, laughter, family, good friends, and a close relationship with God. I pray that you will be a hard worker. I pray that if you have siblings, you’ll stick up for them and be friends with them. I pray you will respect your daddy and me and that you will set goals in life and pursue them.
We absolutely can’t wait to meet you. Please don’t grow up too fast.
