Dearest Landon,

I am so unbelievably excited to meet you! I can’t wait to see your face and all of your adorable features, and to decide who you look most like: me or your daddy. Writing usually comes naturally to me, but I’m having a little difficulty putting my thoughts and feelings into words when it comes to your impending arrival into this world, because I’ve never done this before, but mostly because I’m just filled with love and excitement! I already love you oh so much, and I can only imagine how much that love for you will grow once you get here.

Although my life isn’t what I had always pictured when bringing a little one into this world, know that we are blessed, son. Beyond belief! So many people love us and care for us and would do absolutely anything for us, and they have! Every step of this journey, your amazing family has been there to support your crazy and hormonal mommy, including your daddy. And that’s one thing I pray that you never, ever question – whether or not you are loved. I pray that you feel the love we have for you every single day and are filled with joy and happiness. I know this world is a hard place, but always know that mommy and daddy will always be here for you, no matter what!

Everyone is waiting to meet you, so I hope you’re getting ready for all the crazy that’s headed your way! You will be held and passed around and kissed and talked to and loved on by so many people that love you. I wish I could warn you that your family is a little crazy (ok, a lot crazy), but it’s the best kind of crazy! I am so excited to watch you grow and to get to know your crazy, because you don’t stand a chance to be normal. Sorry, son. 🙂

Our lives are about to change immensely, and I couldn’t be more ready! I’ve been counting down the weeks to your arrival, sweet boy, and I can’t believe the time is almost here! FINALLY! I cannot wait to kiss your cheeks and hold your hand and count your little toes. I can’t wait to bond with you, rock you, swaddle you, and just watch you for countless hours as we will finally have you in our arms. You’re already such an absolute joy and light in my life, baby boy, and my heart swells at the mere thought of holding you! I am so thankful that God chose me to be your mommy, and I pray that I am able to provide anything and everything you will ever need.

I love you Landon, for always and forever. Keep growing big and strong in there until it’s time for us to meet face to face!

xoxo,
Mommy
