To my darling daughter,
So much is happening right now in anticipation of your arrival, that has everyone excited! All of your aunties and I are working very hard to make your baby shower a fantastic event. There’s lots of planning, researching, food tasting, and shopping going on! You’ve even received a few gifts already! There’s so much love surrounding you already, and I know that you’ll feel it the moment you enter this world.
Today your dad and I just got back from Part 1 of our week long vacation. We wanted to take some time away to from it all and just relax now that I’m done with school. We also wanted to get some travel time in before your arrival in November!
We had a great time in San Francisco. It was my first time there, and technically…yours too! We ate and ate and ate (part of which is your fault!), saw the sights and got some good sleep! Now we’re home for a quick break before we head out to Las Vegas tomorrow!
Yesterday was your 16th week in my womb. I’ve learned that your eyesight and your ear drums are forming and you will be able to pick up my voice soon! So I hope you enjoy all of the sights and sounds of Vegas with us while we’re there. There’s lots to see and do!
I’ll be back soon with pictures from our trip.
Dear My Precious Child,
Today was a magnificent day in my life and in our life as family and even though you were there through it all inside me tummy, I want to explain to you what was going on. After two long years of lots of hard work, I graduated from graduate school with my Master’s degree! It has been a long journey…but I did it with the strength and support of the Lord, your dad, and our family and friends.
I decided to go back to school to get this degree in an effort to try and do all I can to provide you with the life I’ve always wanted to give you – one filled with love, support, and the encouragement to go out and realize your dreams. Your father and I both feel that education is the key that unlocks the door for success, and even starting now, we want to pass that key onto you.
Just thinking about you today and how much more my life will change once you’re here makes my heart so full! You make me so happy already, and you’re not even here yet! There are lots of other people too who can’t wait to hold you in their arms and meet you for the first time.
Thank you sharing in my special day with me, making it 1,000 times more special!
