Dear Baby,

Your daddy and I saw you for the first time this week, and I haven’t been able to be away from your picture since.  I carry it around with me everywhere I go, and Daddy carries it on his phone.  We are in awe. 

I can’t fathom that my body is alive so that your body can grow.  I feel things moving around inside to make room for you, and it makes me smile because I know that for the rest of my life I will be in a constant state of shifting so that there is always room for you.  I wouldn’t have it any other way.

My heart beats for yours.

Love, Mama
