Dear Baby Girl,
I realized recently, that I hadn't written since we found out you existed. I had hoped to write so much more often but preparing for you has taken a bit more time than your Daddy and I ever anticipated.
You have become the world to us. Not a day goes by without talking about how you are doing. Your Daddy loves to talk to you and he always feels to see if you are moving around. Though you tend to be a bit picky about when that is. The other night he kept talking and talking to you because he just wanted to feel a little nudge before we went to sleep. But then you went and kicked him right in the face! haha! We figured you just wanted him to be quiet so you could sleep too. :)
We both also worry about you all the time. We want to be sure you are okay - but when we can't see you, sometimes that's hard. Shortly after we found out about you, we had quite a big scare that something might be really wrong. Obviously everything turned out alright, but there isn't a weird pain that goes by without me wondering if it might be an issue with you. And anytime I say "ouch" or get sick, your Daddy instantly wants to know if it has to do with you. But I know that God has you in His hands already, even before you were in my tummy. So when I get a little anxious because I haven't felt you move almost all day or if I have some weird pain or symptom, I just start praying. Worry isn't going to change a thing. But prayer will. Of that I am sure.
In just about 3 months we will meet you. I can't believe it is so soon! We want to be the best parents we can for you. I keep praying that God will show me how to raise you to be a Godly woman who stands firm in her values and beliefs. I'm already praying that someday you will find a man like your Daddy - someone who respects you, who treasures you, who makes you laugh...but most importantly, someone who has a foundation in Christ and will lead you as he should. I pray that you will be a world-changer, that you will have a passion God has placed in your life that is unstoppable.
There are so many things I want to shield you from, so many things I wish you would never have to deal with. But I know life won't always be a piece of cake for you, no matter what I do. I just want you to know that your Daddy and I will always, always be here for you! We will pick you up when you fall, dry the tears that escape, encourage you always, and pray for your continually. You are never alone. Not ever.
Mommy & Daddy
