Dear Callie Catherine,
As I sit here writing to you, I'm watching my belly move in a crazy, unnatural way that I've become accustomed to. These past 9 months have been very up and down for me - my moods always changing and my body betraying me on a daily basis. This pregnancy has been very different from the one I experienced with your big brother - and I'm excited to discover the small differences in your personalities and looks.
Tomorrow I will finally meet you - I will finally get to touch your soft, sweet skin. It's a moment I have waited for since the second me and your daddy starting dreaming about you. And although I have a long day ahead of me and nerves are running high - I also know that the moment you arrive will make every single struggle and pain worth it and more.
What I hope and pray for you is a heart full of hope and faith. I want to give you all the paths to happiness and allow you to be yourself, who God created you to be. And I can't wait to see just who that is! I hope that you have the sweet nature and honest, open heart of your great-grandmother, who you were named after. I hope I will see the same innocence in your eyes as your brother's. Will you not be able to say no to anyone, like your daddy? And what will I find in you that connects you to me?
Tomorrow, my love...tomorrow we will see.
And until then I am praying for you...and hoping for you...and envisioning our life as a family of four!
