I might not be able to hold you in my arms yet, but I love you more than you could fathom. I loved you from the moment I found out that I would one day get to welcome you into the world.
The day I found out, the secret was written all over my face and in my answer to “want to grab drinks later?” I was going to expload trying to keep that secret for more than 10 minutes. I couldn’t contain my excitement about you! You should have seen your father’s excitement when I told him the news! His face lit up so quickly and he instantly owned a look of pride, pride in you.
Holly Grace, we love every second of you. I am no longer Miranda Gibson, I’m your mom, and that’s the best title I could ever wear. From the bottom of my heart (which you get real close to kicking) thank you for being ours.
I promise to protect you and to love you unconditionally. You will always be mine, and I will always support your dreams. Also, I can’t wait until you are old enough to help me sneak Ulta bags into the house so your father doesn’t see. However, please, I’m begging you, stay my little girl. Don’t grow up too fast on me.
I can’t wait to kiss your little hands and feet. The same ones that keep finding themselves in my ribs and pushing on my bladder. I can’t wait to tell you how you already played games with us before you took your first breath. Games such as kick and freeze! You would kick so much until a hand was placed on my tummy to feel you wiggle around, then would freeze abruptly as if that was our thing and it wasn’t meant to be shared.
We love you so much, sweet girl. We can’t wait to meet you in a couple months!
