Hey Baby T, I just wanted to write you a note today. I never knew that writing a blog to keep people posted about you would be so hard. Not so hard because I don’t have time to do so, but because my heart longs for you.
Every day, it seems like something gets harder to do. Not that we don’t appreciate all of the things that we encounter, I guess our human nature just brings us to be a little selfish. It’s hard to go to birthday parties and see all the kids playing and having fun. It’s hard to listen to stories about what awesome new things kids are learning. It’s hard to walk by your room and see your bed. It’s hard to go to Target, because all of the kid stuff seems to be located between Point A and Point B. I want to take you to pick out your favorite toys, buy you clothes, and sneak candy in the basket so your mom can’t see it. I want to take you to get a sno cone. Your mommy loves sno cones, I bet we can get away with that at least once a week.
Your mommy is pretty amazing. I can’t wait for her to get to hold you. She talks about you all the time. Sometimes I get worried that she misses you way more then I do, but I’m really just appearing to be strong. I know she needs me there for her. But it’s not true. I miss you just as much as she does. You are always on our minds.
Mother’s day is this weekend. I know it’s a joyous occasion and we have a lot to be thankful for. I just know that there will be an emptiness that we feel. I wish that we would wake up early in the morning and make mommy breakfast in bed. Pick her some flowers from the garden...well maybe the neighbors garden. Actually, I’m pretty terrible at growing flowers, we will have to learn how to do that together. You get to have muffins with mommy at church and then all the moms’ get flowers during the service. Your mommy is going to glow when you get to be there for that. I bet she will hold you extra tight on that day. Who am I kidding, she’s going to hold you extra tight every day, hope you are ready for that.
I’ve been planning out our family pictures. I hope you don’t get tired of the camera. I take a lot of pictures. I’ll take you on adventures and teach you all of my tricks. I hope you think its fun. We will go camping, load up the film cameras and just have a fun day. Maybe we will even catch a few fish and make an awesome dinner. Or maybe we will just eat hot dogs and roast a million marshmallows.
We can’t wait to meet you Baby T. You are the piece that fills our very hearts. We pray every day for you and are so happy that you are growing big and healthy. Hopefully not many more days will pass and we can have you here with us.
We love you.
