you’re a little early, just like your big brother was. we didnt think you would show up for at least another year, but here you are, 12 weeks old in your mama’s tummy, and your brother just turned 9 months old. people must think we’re crazy for having another baby so soon, and I suppose that we are. while we’re a little surprised, we’re so excited that you’re with us, and I cant wait to see you on the screen in 6 weeks, and to hold you in my arms in 6 months.
sorry it’s taken a little while to write, but things are pretty busy these days. your brother is zooming around the house, getting into pretty much everything. while he’s a little tiring to keep up with, he’s such a joy to us, and I can hardly believe that now we have double joy!
I want you to know that even though you may be the 2nd kid, that doesnt mean you’re 2nd priority. I already love you with my whole heart (just like I love your mama and brother), and you cant do anything to change that. I’m sure you’ll soon see that there are good and not-quite-as-good things about being the 2nd kid, but whatever happens, we know that God has put you in our family at the exact right time.
while I know that people have babies all the time, I want you to know that you too are our little miracle. God just loves to surprise us and bless us richly, and you, my child, are indeed a blessing. I hope that you’ll soon know God’s blessings in Jesus, and that you’ll be a blessing to everyone you meet.
now I have a request for you: will you please stop making your mama so sick? I suppose it hasnt been too bad, but throwing up in the middle of the night is never fun. also, it seems like you’ve got quite an appetite, and at times we wonder if there’s more than one of you in there? if you are indeed plural, we’ll be quite overwhelmed for a while. but maybe you’re just more hungry than your brother, which wouldnt be a bad thing at all. soon we’ll find our for sure if you’re a yall or not.
I love you so much, and I cant wait to hold you in my arms.
