A Letter To My Sweet Baby Boy

Dearest Jordan,

The time has finally come - you're almost here! We went from counting down the months, to counting down the weeks; and now finally, counting down the days. Your Daddy and I cannot wait to meet you and we've been dreaming about what your precious little face will look like. I can't even begin to express to you the kinds of emotions I have been feeling over the past nine months. It's been a whirlwind of all kinds of happiness - the kind of happiness that gives you butterflies. It's amazing how much we have fallen in love with you, and we have yet to even meet each other.

Since we found out that we were having you, your Daddy has enjoyed talking to you. He kisses my tummy every morning when he wakes up, and every night before he goes to bed. He is such a proud father and he can't wait to hold you in his arms.

Son, I will tell you that the moment I found out I was pregnant with you, it was an instant connection. We've been together every step of the way. I'll never forget the first time I felt you move - such a strange but exciting feeling knowing that you were growing inside of me. Even better was the first time your Dad was able to feel you move. The expression on his face was priceless; and one that I had never seen before. It was his first "bonding" experience with you...and it absolutely melted my heart seeing him so happy.

The first five months seemed to go by very slow, but these last few have flown by. Now we're here. At the end. And the anticipation is killing me. Knowing that you could arrive any day now is enough to make me go crazy. Your clothes are washed, your bed is ready and I think I've organized everything a thousand times. All we need is you, little boy!

I can't wait to hold you in my arms; lock eyes with you and meet for the first time; touch your tiny toes; kiss your little face; and tell you how much I love you.

You are, and will be, our whole world. Our little prince. This is a crazy world kid, but we will do everything in our power to raise you the best way possible. We will make sure you grow up with everything you need, but also knowing the importance of being a hard worker.

We love you "Baby J" and we look forward to meeting you!!

Love always,

Mom and Dad
