8 lbs, 3 oz. - 21 in. long
I loved being pregnant with you, and I'm going to miss it. I loved feeling you move around. I loved listening to your heartbeat. I loved placing my hands on my tummy, knowing that you were safe and happy just underneath them. I loved that I was able to give you what you needed exactly when you needed it. I loved having you with me all the time. I loved thinking about the person you're going to be. And just as I feel honored to be your dad's wife, I feel so incredibly honored and humbled to be your mother.
But now you're here - and what an amazing little guy you are. I could stare at you for hours. I could hold you for days. I could listen to you whimper and even cry until the end of time. I don't know how I existed without you. It's like my life didn't start until you were born and I stared into your blue eyes.
Your birth day is only the beginning of what I hope will be a long and happy life for you in this crazy, chaotic world. I think you are the most wonderful little person I have ever laid eyes on. You are, to put a tried and true cliched spin on it, a dream come true. A lifelong dream in human form. You are absolutely beautiful. You are so devastatingly perfect. And I am so proud of you.
Happy birth day, buddy. Welcome to the world.
I love you,
Birth story coming soon!
