Dear Baby

Dear Baby

I debated whether or not I was going to post this. It’s really personal and while I get personal here on this blog, I don’t always get that personal. But I decided to go for it. I kind of got teary writing it but that’s probably just the hormones talking. It’s a letter to Baby B.

Dear Baby,

We can actually count down the number of days until we meet you know. I look at the calendar and the days ticking by and everyday is one day closer to you. When we first found out you were on the way, you were the size of a poppyseed. How can any human be the size of a poppyseed? You were barely anything more than a heartbeat. But you had a strong heartbeat. We saw it pulsing on the screen! And just like that you became our baby.

We found out you were going to be boy when I was just 16 weeks pregnant with you. We were stunned! We hadn’t been able to imagine a baby until we found out that you were going to be a little boy. Then the shopping frenzy began. Onesies, hats and booties—we needed them all!

Although we’ve been together for many months now, I have yet to meet you. I don’t know what you look like (will you have blonde hair or brown hair? Brown eyes or blue?) and I don’t know what you like or dislike. But I do know that you are loved.

We’ve had our own little way of communicating. I ate Indian food a few weeks ago and you started dancing in my belly. I think you liked the spices! If you are tired or hungry and want to be rocked or some food, you start kicking and moving your little fists. I feel you and I know that I can give you what you need. I hope that continues after you enter this world.

Many mothers have hopes and dreams for their children. I dream of you, but I just want you to be healthy and happy. I hope that you love being part of our family as much as we love that you will become a part of it.

I am excited to meet you baby. I want to be able to feel your little hands and feet without the obstacle of my flesh in between. I want to be able to hold you in my arms rather than my belly. Most of all, I want you to know that your Dad and I love you.

    Absolutely beautiful Brittany! I can’t wait for you to meet your little one! It’s seriously the most overwhelming, surreal and joyous experience I have ever been through. I’m so excited for you. Keeping you in my thoughts!

    This was lovely and something your child will treasure.

    I debated posting my one week letter to my new baby as well, but went ahead with it because it was where my mind was at these days. Since I write for a living, I have to go with the topics that feel easy and organic. Right now, new motherhood is at the forefront of my mind.

    Well, you are certainly ready to become a mom! That was so beautiful and I can vividly remember the days leading up to M+V birth and just wanting so badly to meet them. You will be stunned at how quickly time passes as soon as that little boy is born. I can’t wait to meet him either!

    Dear Brittany,
    What a beautiful–my most favorite. Reading your letter to Baby, we cannot help but fall in love with him, too. You and Pete are blessed and ready to be the very, best parents. L, H.

    Such a sweet letter, mama to be!!! I’m just waiting any day now to see a picture pop up on social media of you with your little munchkin in your arms. Sending you lots of easy delivery vibes! 🙂

    What a beautiful post! And as far as sharing things personal on the blog, I agree it’s a fine line but how meaningful is a blog if it isn’t personal, right? Can’t wait to see the little guy!

    Oh, what a beautiful post and beautiful letter to your sweet baby. I loved reading this so much! You are going to be such a wonderful mom and your baby is so lucky to be a part of your family. I cannot wait for your little guy to arrive! My baby is almost 3 months old and I’m missing the brand newborn stage so much, even though it’s all a sleep deprived blur. Ha.

    This is so, so sweet. I think it’d be awesome to write letters to your child over the years and then give them to him/her when he/she is older. So precious 🙂
