June 26, 2015; that date is now nine months behind us… The same amount of time you were growing in my belly, you have spent with your daddy and me out here on this earth. Similar to every month I was waiting for you to join me, reading about and feeling your growth in amazement, I now watch how my baby is rapidly turning into a little boy right before my eyes in that same wonder.
Today I wanted to relive the same feelings surrounding me right before that beautiful day in June I met my second love (that’s you!), so I thumbed through your journal and found this paragraph, “As we think about the future with you in it, we are wondering what life will be like with a little one around. Questions keep flying around in my mind, and yet, none of it seems to matter a bit. All I know, all that matters, is that God has entrusted your little life into our hands, and that we are so lucky to be expecting you into our lives. Know this, you are loved already, and nothing will change that. Excitedly so, your mama.”
So much has changed about how I felt that day I spent musing about your arrival. The wondering and guessing about our life as a family of three has been replaced by complete contentment and joy at watching our family together. That excitement I was speaking of still exists, but in watching you shape into a little boy that I can see crystal clear and hold in my hands; it beats feeling for you through those soft nudges through my belly!
I know I have so much more to learn about motherhood and being your mama, but one things for sure. You will always be mine, loved and cherished, and I will always wholeheartedly yours.
Happy nine months, little one.
