Week 40 Letter

Hi sweetheart!

I think that this will probably be my last letter to you before you’re delivered. You’re scheduled birthday is tomorrow, although so far, I don’t see that happening. While I’m starting to see some really tiny signs of labor, I think you’re pretty content where you’re at. But soon my dear you will be joining your daddy and I in this great big world.

We can’t wait for you to come. In fact just this morning, Daddy reminded me to write a letter to you to tell you how excited we were to hold you. And he’s right. We are so excited to meet you and hug you tight and cover your little face with kisses. For so long all we’ve heard from you is your heartbeat and the only moves we’ve seen you make have been through my belly. We can’t wait until you’re here with us – even if that means you’re crying your head off and flailing your arms around.

Over the past couple of weeks people have been telling us how much you’re going to change our lives. And while I think that you already did, I know that it’s only going to get better. We’ll be able to see the world through your eyes when you’re 1 and learning how to walk and when you’re 3 and asking all kinds of “why” questions and when you go to school and start making friends and when we take you to new places and show you new things.

It’s going to be so exciting to watch you grow up. I wonder if you will be just like your dad or if your personality will be the mirror image of mine or if you’ll be the perfect combination of both of us. I wonder if you’ll beg to go to the farm and see the animals or if you’ll turn your nose up at the smell and if you’ll like to read or would prefer to be outside playing. Will you be athletic and smart or Miss/Mr. Popularity and creative? Oh, the things we have to learn about you!

It’s almost time for us to meet you, Munchkin, and we couldn’t be more excited!

We love you!
