a letter from daddy

Dear A____,

Even though you aren't born yet, I want you to know that I truly love you. I want to give the best of my life to be a great father to you and a great husband to your mother. I draw my strengths and wisdom from God and I pray that He teaches me to raise you up in His will. It's crazy for me to think that I will be raising up another human being and unconditionally love.

The first time I felt you kick inside mommy's tummy, it was late at night just before bed. I put my hand on mommy's tummy and just like the shark in Jaws, you gave a swift kick that freaked me out. Today, as of June 22, 2010, mommy ate lunch and, without hesitation, you denied every bit of it and forced her to throw it up! I can tell that you just might be a picky eater. I've had the best time putting my ear to mommy's belly and listening to you rumble around. I can't wait to deliver you from the delivery room so I can finally see you. I really love you!
