Dear Baby


Dear Baby Rod,

Each day I look down at my protruding belly, I am awed and humbled that a loving Heavenly Father gave us such a precious gift. 

It is truly amazing how much love your daddy and I have for you. We look forward to the day when we get to fill the nursery with your presence, and just stare at you for hours as you sleep. We dream of the days when you start walking and talking, so your dad can teach you to run seamless football plays by the time you are 3. We pray that you will be obedient and love us, that you will always trust in our decisions for you, as they are and will be in the best interest for you. We aspire to teach you as much about the world as possible, so that you have a love for learning and will have a desire to do great things. We hope we will live and teach you by good example, that you will look at others with respect for their potential, instead of judgment. We desire for you to be happy and at peace with yourself, and to love yourself for the marvelous little person you are. 

Your acrobatic performances in my tummy and ninja kicks to the ribs can be ticklish and annoying at the same time, but I am so grateful you are healthy and active. I know there will be difficult times, but I promise will always strive to remain positive and patient, especially at the times I will not want to be. I promise to always listen to your point of view and respect your thoughts and opinions as an individual. I promise to see you as the child of God that you are in all things that you do, and to unconditionally love you.

Life will get rough. Your heart will break, your spirit will hang low, and your beliefs will be questioned. Just know that there will always be a better day to look forward to and that the Savior's love will be able to swallow any sorrow or trouble you have. 

With each passing day that I can see my toes less and less, means you are that much closer to being in our arms! Keep growing and developing into our beautiful baby boy. 

We love you.


Mom & Dad

You should print/publish letters such as these into a book for baby and give them to him when he is older. :)

This is so beautiful and I am sure your baby can feel the love.

I wrote something like an excitment of the day I found out about pregnancy, the day I saw my daughter via an ultrasound and the day she was born, and kept it in a box to share with her when she is older.
