It’s funny posting this when in 3 days I will actually be 34 weeks. Eh, better late than never I guess, right? I am just going to let Kev take this post. He wrote such an adorable letter, I don’t really want to write anything else. All is good. Baby is healthy, we are happy, and time is ticking down!! We are so excited!!
Letter to baby :: Week 33
Dear sweet little girl,
You’ve been becoming more and more real to me as the past few weeks have gone by. Last week, however, confirmed how real you truly are. I received a phone call from your grandma around 5:00pm on Wednesday evening. She had a troubled sound to her voice. When I asked her how she was doing, she told me that your mom had been in a car accident and was being sent to the hospital. My heart sunk into stomachâ€¦
I rushed out the door and headed to the hospital where your mom was being sent. As I raced down the pike, all I could do was think about your sweet little face and how badly I just wanted to hold your little hand and tell you that everything was going to be ok. Terrible thoughts filled my head. The thought of never being able to meet you in person absolutely ruined me and I couldn’t erase it from my mind. I was a wreck. I never realized how someone that I’ve never met before could have such a strong hold on me. From this moment on, you were as real as you’d be if you were sitting directly in front of me.
God answered our prayers that night and kept you and your mom safe. For that, I’m eternally grateful. Now, you cannot come soon enough. I’m longing to meet you in person. I think about you constantly and day dream about what it will be like when you are finally here. Your mom and I have so many things we want to show you and share with you. There is no doubt in my mind that you are gift directly from God. You’ve completely changed me and we’ve never even met. Before you were conceived I used to think I was too selfish to be a father. Now, all I want to do is give you everything I have.
We have a picture of you on the fridge from your latest sonogram and every time I walk by the kitchen I stop and look at it. You look so peaceful in that picture. When I look at it I can’t help but feel overwhelmed with this emotion that I’ve never felt before. I’m excited to have that emotion come to fruition on the day that you’re born. Until then, I can only describe it as pure joy.
You are my new reason for getting out of bed in the morning. I can’t wait to be your best friend.
With so much love,
– Your Dad (first time I’ve written that; weird)
