A Letter to My Baby
Today is April 1, 2017 and we are exactly twenty days from your due date. I've been counting down the days for months now, and I am getting so anxious to meet you. I remember the exact moment when I found out you were in my belly, it seems like an eternity ago. Looking down at that pregnancy test my whole life changed in a matter of seconds, so many emotions were running through my head.
You. My sweet little girl, you were my blessing in disguise. You my angel saved me.
September 9, 2016 was the first day I heard your little heartbeat. It was 166, and stronger than ever. The sound of your heart was like music to my ears, the most beautiful sound I had ever heard. I've heard an ultrasound heartbeat in the movies, but never in person. It was the day you became real in my head, it was the day I finally realized you were actually there, inside of me.
November 22, 2016 was the day I found out you were a girl. My little angel.
I am so beyond grateful that you are in my life, I feel so close to you and I haven't even met you yet. Every night I get the biggest rush of happiness when I feel you kicking around in my belly. You respond to my voice, especially when I sing (I know I'm horrible, but you are in for a lifetime of my off tune vocals) and you kick me back every I put my hand on my stomach. December 2, 2016 around 12:30am was the first moment I actually felt you kick me, I remember exactly how you felt on my skin and how I felt. It was the most incredible feeling in the world, so indescribable. & it wasn't "butterflies" or "gas pains" as some would describe feeling the first kick, it was an actual movement inside. I felt you. That was one of the best days or my life.
I haven't met you yet, but I feel like I know you already. You have already brought so much happiness to my life, and you have made my days so much more fulfilling. I can't wait to meet you, and hold you, and kiss you. You are the greatest thing that has ever happened to me, and I don't say that lightly.
Everything in my life is about to change once you get here, and I can't wait. I am a little nervous, but oh so excited for this next chapter of my life.
I promise you that you will have an amazing life, full of happiness and laughter. I love you baby girl.
