To my little Sophia Bug,
With every day that passes, we get more and more excited for your arrival. I, of course, am starting to feel seriously impatient! Nine days until your estimated due date and I just want you here now. I know that is not how it works, but I wish that we could just “wish” you out now. Everyone tells me that babies come on their own time and in their own way, I just hope you decide you want to be born soon. We miss you and can’t wait to meet you. I have your room all ready (even though your bassinet is in our room 🙂 ). Daddy helped me organize so I didn’t get overwhelmed and Alysha helped put together your stroller and bassinet so you would be ready to t(ravel in style once you get here! You are going to have more clothes than any one little girl will be able to wear in six months, but I know you will be so fashionable and beautiful.
So far we have had lots of different guesses on when you will be here….December 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 14, 16, 17, 19, 23 and 24 (Christmas Eve). We are coming up on the 6, that is in two days. Daddy says December 9. I’m not sure, I don’t have a strong feeling on when you might get here. Tomorrow, we have a 39 week appointment so we will see if there is any progress, but like everyone says that doesn’t mean you will come soon….but please do! Every day, Daddy and I feel you kicking around and wiggling, but we want to have you here now so we can hug you and kiss you and love you.
You will never know how much we love you already and we haven’t even met yet. I truly believe that God brought your Daddy and I together and now we are blessed with you. The best thing is that you are a miracle, created totally out of love and pure joy. You are the perfect addition to our little family and we couldn’t be happier. As big of a change as this is, we know that you were made just for us, beautiful, sweet and full of love.
I hope this will be the first of many letters I write to you, but I don’t ever want you to forget how loved you are and how much we want you to be here with us. This is the best year and the best Christmas ever. I can’t wait to see you.
