Our Letter to Jelly Bean...

Wednesday, February 4, 2009

Dear Jelly Bean,

It’s your 18 Week Birthday today and although we already constantly talk to you as you are nestled all warm and toasty in Mommy's tummy, we really wanted to write you a letter. We wanted to tell you, that you cannot even imagine how happy you have made us already.

We have wanted you for so long now, and finally, now that you are here, we count our blessings every day. Unfortunately however, the love that we feel for you already comes with fear; at least with your Mommy (you can thank your Mimi for that one because she passed on the “worry” genes). Every day Mommy wakes up and immediately touches her stomach, for fear as if someday you won’t be there anymore. Ever since she felt your first few flutters and kicks, she now worries when she doesn't feel them if you are okay. She worries that she's not doing enough for you. You should get used to Mommy worrying about you though because she is your Mommy, and it’s what Mommy's do!

We just can’t explain to you how much Daddy and Mommy want to meet you. We can’t wait to see your face, hold you in our arms and learn more about you every day. That day seems so far away as we still have many, many weeks until you are ready to come into the world. We already worry about the hardships you will face in life, the boys that will break your heart, and the hearts that you will break along the way. We wonder what you will be like all the time. We wonder if you will like school or if you will want to play sports? What color eyes and hair will you have and what will your first kiss be like? Mommy wonders if you will be best friends and who you will marry? There is just so much that we want to tell you and teach you, but most of all, we just want you to know how much we love you and that we will always love you, no matter what.

Love Always,
Mommy & Daddy
