A letter to myself...

I wanted to take a few moments and write a letter to myself here on the day before my official due date. I hope you all don't mind me sharing this with you all...

Dear Meg, 
Here you are the day before your official due date and the last few days well weeks in reality have been anxiety-filled. Anxious because you are just waiting, waiting, waiting. You don't know when your son will come but soon enough you will know what day each year you will celebrate his birthday, each precious addition to his life. You are eagerly anticipating finding out what he will look like, will he have hair when he is born, etc. You are also waiting to look at your son together with Sean and finally decide on what name to call him, what name does he best seem to suit. Additionally, you are anxious because of the journey you are about to embark on to bring him into this world. Truthfully, you wish that this process would have occurred sooner, that he was here already and that this 9-month pregnancy journey was completed a few days or even a few weeks earlier. However patient or impatient you have been the last few weeks, there is nothing you could do to bring him into this world any faster. So relish this time you have left, soak in the quietness a bit longer, kiss your husband a bit more deeply without the cry or whine from your son to briefly interrupt that. Enjoy the remaining freedom you have before you are forever a mother. 

xoxo, Meg

  1. You are going to be a wonderful mother - and such a chic one! Hang in there, love - I cannot wait to "meet" your son virtually! He is lucky to have the two of you as parents.
