I’ve unfortunately documented this pregnancy far less than with my other two but one thing I can’t skip is writing a letter to baby. I find this to be such a special way to reflect on my pregnancy and also look forward to this new little person the Lord is blessing our family with.
We’re getting so close to meeting you and it’s filling us all with so much excitement and anticipation. We have prayed for you for so long and the time is almost here. I will forever cherish this pregnancy as the answer to prayer, and also for the closeness I felt with you. You have been a busy baby since 15 weeks and I feel like I’m always aware of your presence through your kicks and turns. I can’t wait to find out if you’re just as busy on the outside as you have been on the inside.
You have a big sister who is so so so thrilled to meet you. She calls you the cutest baby and says hi to you and always wants to give my belly hugs and kisses. I have a feeling you two will be especially close! And you also have the best big brother who can’t wait to teach you so many things. He’s already talking about the adventures you’ll go on together. Your Daddy is the absolute best and I can’t wait to see the two of you together. He loves you so much already!!
So many people have prayed for you little one, since before you were born. You are truly a gift and we couldn’t be more grateful. I can’t wait to look into your eyes and hold your little hands and snuggle with you. And we can’t wait to find out if you’re a boy or a girl. I’ve had such strong boy feelings throughout my pregnancy, comparing your pregnancy to Augustine’s. I’m so looking forward to that moment of finding out. It’s the absolute best!!
We told your brother and sister that you’d be here when it was fall and the leaves were changing colors. Every day we notice more yellow, red and orange leaves and wonder if today is the day you will arrive. You’ll be here to enjoy my favorite season – the crisp weather, the lighting changes, and the coziness. Our autumn baby! And goodness, this holiday season is going to be so much more magical with you here!
While I’m anxious to know when and how you will arrive, I’m trusting that the timing will be perfect and just as the Lord intends. I love you so much baby and I can’t wait to finally hold you in my arms and kiss you!
Last Friday, Matthew and I snuck out for a little afternoon coffee date and it was so nice to have some time just the two of us. We passed by one of our favorite streets and I couldn’t resist taking these photos. Next year, I’d love to take photos with our baby here!! And hard to believe he/she will be almost a year old!
