Dear Baby Girl,
Your due date is one week away and I can hardly believe how fast these past 39 weeks have gone. From the moment we started praying for you to the moment we found out we would be parents all the way to the moment we found out we would be adding a sweet daughter to our family and now today, one week away from your expected arrival. These moments have flown by and I have cherished each and every one of them so much. My heart can hardly stand waiting another moment for you, but I know this is all in the plan. It's all in the making and modeling of me becoming your mama. It's not about your daddy or me anymore, it's all about you, sweet girl. And I know this last week (or weeks) you will make that quite apparent. It's your schedule and God's timing and I know it will be perfect.
I imagine what you will look like and dream about your future hopes and dreams. From about half way through my pregnancy with you, you have made yourself well-known as you bounce around and throw parties in my belly. I believe you will have your daddy's energy and that the two of you will give me a run for my money. I can tell you will be a daddy's girl already as you always put on a show when daddy is around and puts his hands on my belly. And in return, he is so smitten by you already. I have no doubts you will completely have him (and me) wrapped around your little finger.
I pray and wish that you take only the best characteristics that your daddy and I exude. I hope you have his motivation and determination. I hope you never let someone tell you that you cannot do something, and that when someone does tell you this, you only let it fuel your fire instead of dim your spirits. I hope you have my compassion and always fight for what you believe in, even if your opinion is not the most popular. I hope you are able to speak your mind as I do, but have the charm and grace that your daddy does once you deliver your message. I hope you work hard and play hard. I hope you have a love for others yet know your independence. And I hope you always remember what is most important in this life and that your family will always be there for you, loving you and supporting you every step of the way, just as your grandparents have done for us.
Baby Girl, your daddy and I cannot wait to meet you. I know you will be the perfect addition to our little family and the light of our lives. Until your birthday, we will pray and dream of your safe and healthy arrival. And I know once you are here, you will blow our hopes and dreams for you out of the water.
