grateful heart: up + a letter to our unborn baby

a nursery scene - the 'up' art print is now on his changing table 
dear sweet baby monaco, 
my little boy. i will soon meet you and will hold you in my arms. a tiny gift needing my love, care, and attention. i am so excited for your arrival; a little human made of pure love. we are so proud to be your mom and dad and have been anticipating your birth for so long. there are so many things we hope for you; we constantly pray for your health and the many things we want you to be able to see and do in this beautiful world. 
i hope you like us... 
you will love your daddy. he is the most amazing man i have ever met. he is devoted, passionate, caring, genuine, kind, strong; he is a man who is going to be a wonderful role model for you. he will teach you so much and will love you to no end {just like he does towards me!} i know you will look up to him and he won't let you down. he will love holding you and will give you a lot of attention. i can just picture his smile the first time he meets you-- with tears in his eyes- like the night i told him you were going to enter our life this upcoming winter. he will give you the devotion you deserve and will guide you through life with support in becoming whoever you want to be.  
when i close my eyes, i can picture your sweet face. will you look like your dad? will you look like me? or will you be a combination of us both? we are so excited to find out. 
my life is soon going to change and i am perfectly alright with that. i know it's a ton of work to raise a child, yet i have never been more ready for the challenge. for this is what i have always wanted most in this one life. as i carry you in my body, i feel your every move and wonder, 'will i be a good mother? will i make you proud? will i teach, nurture, and guide you through life in the way you most deserve? am i strong enough to watch you fall and allow you to pick yourself back up? what if i hurt you? what if i make mistakes?' i hope with all my heart that i can be the best mom for you. i hope you will always love me the way i have always loved you. you will be the center of my world. you already are. i think about you all the time. your dad and i talk about you constantly and we look forward to reading you books, teaching you the power of prayer, teaching you how to play baseball, to love the game of football, to swim and hopefully boat across serene lakes, we hope you enjoy trips to the beach and to rural, ohio, and we hope you love life. it's such a precious gift. we hope you value patience, your faith, forgiveness, and your morals/roots as much as we both do. we hope you can always come to us comfortably and that you always follow your heart. 

our hearts smile at the thought of meeting you. 
i love you, my darling baby boy. 

with love,
your mom

  7. The most amazing letter ever, Janelle!! Thank-you for sharing. I wrote each of my children a couple letters when they were at different stages of their lives...it meant more to me at the moment to get my thoughts down, but hopefully they will cherish them as the years pass.

  10. I love your letter to your sweet little one. It’s something you should print off or otherwise scrapbook for him in his baby book. Also I love that we almost have the same anniversary (ours is June 28, 2014)! Such a small little world :)
