Dear baby,

I’ll never forget the first time I saw you. You were a microscopic dot on a screen, a peanut-sized being with little nubs for arms and legs. You were just 8 weeks old. Your daddy and I just stared at you with awe; we had no words to describe the incredible moment.

The best part was what happened next. “Here is the heartbeat,” the doctor said to us, and a second later we heard you. Your thunderous heart beating in our ears at what seemed a mile a minute. Your daddy squeezed my hand and we looked at each other with such joy and anticipation to meet you.

It was that day that changed me from knowing I was pregnant to knowing I was going to be a mom and that you’re going to change my life forever. And I can’t wait.

With love,
