Soon, very soon, we will be adding a baby girl to our family, and we are so very excited! I will be on maternity leave for awhile. Feel free to write me emails, but please be patient with my response as if may take me a little longer than usual. And make sure to watch my Instagram for a picture of baby girl when she arrives!
As excited as I am to have another little one in our family, it makes me a little sad to be saying good-bye to the time with Jasper being our one and only. It has been such a special three years with just him. I wanted to write him a letter with how much this precious time with him has meant to me.
My sweet baby boy! It is hard to believe that you came into my world almost 3 years ago. Since the moment I touched your baby skin you have been my everything and you have had my heart. I cannot imagine life without you.
You made me a mom, my most treasured role in life. You taught me along the way, and I am still learning every day how to be the best mom I can possibly be for you.
You have given me such an unimaginable amount of joy and love. I have been taken aback many times by your caring nature; you read my emotions so well. You hug me when I’m sad, kiss me when I need that extra push, and call me a princess just when I definitely don’t feel like one. It melts my heart.
You have brought so much joy to our family and even though you never knew it, you were my strength during the hardest season of my life. No matter how hard some days were, I knew I could look to your face for hope. I knew when I went to peek in on your peaceful sleeping self in the evening, everything was going to be ok. You were the reason to continue on each day.
You always amaze me, and we are about to go on an amazing adventure together. You are going to become a big brother and we are going to add a baby girl to our family. I know you will be the most amazing big brother, and I cannot wait to see how you love and care for her.
We are all so excited for baby girl to arrive, but at the same time my heart is breaking. It will no longer be just you and me all day, and it makes me a little sad. I never want you to feel as if you are not my priority or that you don’t have my whole heart. If there is one thing my mom taught me, it is that your heart grow with each child so that there is always plenty of love to go around. I will never love you less than I do now, only more. And you will always be my baby.
Thank you, baby, for loving me, for making me laugh, for teaching me, for making my every day a beautiful mess, and for helping me life life in the present moment. I love you so much!
