My darling baby,
Today is a big day for you. You have been growing inside my belly for 37 weeks now,
which means you are officially considered full term. And what that really means
is that now whatever day you decide to make your birthday
you should be strong enough to handle this wild and crazy outside world.
Please do me a favor though and hold off for at least two more days until your Daddy
is back on our little island with us where he belongs.
We would all really appreciate that and I bet you would like it better that way too.
Your Daddy is really excited for you to make your big debut.
I think it's cute when he talks about you and when he does stuff to get your room ready for you.
It's already very obvious how proud he is to have you and I know
that sense of pride is only going to grow once he meets you and holds you in his arms.
I can't wait for that moment. It's going to be very special.
I also can't wait for the moment when your big sister (one of your three) gets to the hospital
and sees you for the first time. I'm actually really excited about this moment.
She was very interested in a three-month-old baby that was at the house not too long ago
and she loves rocking her baby dolls to sleep and patting their backs
so I am very curious to see how she reacts to you. A lot of people think
she is going to be jealous of you at first, but I don't really think so.
She is such a loving and sweet girl. I think she is going to be the perfect big sister for you.
In fact, I think you are going to have three perfect big sisters. You are one lucky baby.
And I am one lucky Momma to have you as my sweet baby.
Soon I won't have to imagine how special, cute, and precious you are.
I will be able to look down on you and tell just by tucking my finger securely
into the palm of your hand, by kissing your tiny forehead, and
by gazing into your eyes and seeing a reflection of your Daddy and me in you.
Little Baby Williams, you are already so incredibly loved.
We are ready for you to join us and to start our adventure with you.
It's going to be an incredible journey full of ups and downs, twists and turns,
but I promise you that every step of the way, whether it's a right step or a left step,
you will feel the love of your Momma and Daddy stepping right along with you.
We will always be at your side supporting you, encouraging you, guiding you.
If there is one guarantee in life that I can give you, it is that.
Your Momma and Daddy are here for you. Always.
