snippet of life: a letter to my baby

Dear Baby Boy,

We were both shocked when the doctor pointed out to us that we are expecting a boy! Your dad was especially taken back because I had it in my mind that we were having a girl and I guess I was very convincing to him, ha! But you threw us all for a loop and we were overjoyed by the news. We got to see you yesterday and you were bouncing around like crazy, hands in the air and your little heart beating fast. We have so many conversations about you and I don’t think I go five minutes without looking down at my belly… not sure why, I guess I’m just checking on you even though all I can see is a giant stomach! I’ve been collecting outfits and baby things for you that sit on my dresser. I think I’ve folded the same outfits 100 times because they’re so cute! Oh, and you already have your own guitar, a Baby Taylor. It’s a gift from your papa, who will be teaching you how to play the day you’re born, haha! I think you’ll be playing a lot of golf too because you have a grandpa, who’s obsessed with it, and an uncle who have already mentioned that they’ll be teaching you at a very young age. We can’t wait to celebrate all of life’s milestones with you and to start our own family traditions. I’ve already pondered a few in my head! I love the holidays, but I’m really looking forward to spring this year! I am looking forward to holding you and spending every moment with you. I am looking forward to summer and our beach days and I am really hoping that I can convince your dad to take us to Spain next November, jaja (laughing in Spanish : )).  I might need your help on that, but I’m very confident he’ll say yes once he sees you and witnesses what I have to go through to get you into the world! Maybe it’s my push present? Haha! Anyway, you already have so many people who love you and I personally think you’re one lucky baby…

    I love letters to babies before they’re born. I’m sure your little guy will treasure these one day when he can read 🙂

    You are going to love, love, love having a boy! I have two and they are just little firecrackers that keep me chuckling (and sometimes pulling my hair out) all day! There’s nothing like a dreamy little smile from your sweet little guy. Wishing you well and hoping for a speedy delivery!
