First letter to my precious little one

with 2 comments

Hello sweetheart,

Well, here we are, nearly finished with the first trimester, you and I.

We don’t know yet if you are a boy or a girl. But daddy and I have had a boy name and girl name picked out since just after we got married, twelve years ago. If you are a girl, you will be Vivian. And if you are a boy, your name will be Luke.

We can’t stop talking about you. You are in just about every conversation that we have. Daddy has downloaded an app on his iPad showing how you are developing from week to week.

When it was still at 7 – 8 weeks, you didn’t have arms or legs yet, and ouma kindly said that you looked like a little baby dolphin. So for a while, we called you “fluffy little dolphin”. Daddy added the fluffy part and I laughed and said I didn’t think you were all that fluffy, but the name stuck.

Now, you are starting to look like a little person, and are all of 6cm long. I love to think of you, so tiny but so developed already. Our little miracle.

Little one, I was planning to try for a baby sometime in the new year. I was planning to go off my medicine so it would be a bit safer for you. But I guess I was thinking of you too much and you decided it was time to come along already.

Maybe it is for the best. maybe I needed to be on my medicine just a little bit longer so that I could be healthy enough to carry you for nine months without problems. I have prayed that you will be protected, and healthy and beautiful and I believe that the Lord will answer my prayers. He has blessed us with you and I know that He loves you even more than daddy and I already do, and will not let any harm come to you.

Can I say that I think you are a little girl? Just some mommy’s intuition. I guess we will know soon enough. Daddy and I don’t mind either way. We are so excited for your arrival. Daddy says time is passing too slowly for him. I will treasure the remaining six months, having you close and safe inside me. I still have a lot of getting ready to do, so things are nice and organised when you get home, and you and I can spend all our time getting to know each other in comfort.

Happy growing, my little love.
