Are you in there?
I can’t feel you yet, but the internet says that you’re as big as my open hand.
There are hundreds of questions that I want to ask you.
Are you sensitive? Are you silly? Are you quiet? Do you love the spotlight?
Will you give breastfeeding an honest try?
Will you try to ride Esther like a pony?
Will you be a morning person?
Let me tell you about your mommy: I like one on one time with people. I get overwhelmed in crowds, unless I’m teaching. Math was one of my favorite subjects, followed by French. I’ve been a hairstylist for over eight years now. It keeps me quite busy! I love your daddy. He makes me laugh; and he’ll surely make you laugh, too. We both love Jesus and can’t wait to read Bible stories to you. I love flavors of all kinds and will likely try to get you to eat as many varieties of foods as possible. (It worked on your dad.) I still love children’s movies, so I’m sure we’ll enjoy those moments together. And if you’re interested, we’ll probably be singing together, too, as that’s another regular habit of mine.
And here’s a bit about your dad: He loves to horse around, wrestling and chasing and tickling. He’s got a servant’s heart and loves to care for others. Just wait until you see how he cares for you! He’s got tough, angry-looking tattoos; but if you pay attention, there’s a gentleness behind his eyes. He talks to himself in the shower. Actually, he talks to himself all the time. He likes to know how a story ends before he has the patience to see it unfold. And he’s equally eager in his gift-giving. The odds are high that you will never actually make it to Christmas morning to open your presents because he’ll be too excited to wait.
With a growing love,
