(scrapbook layout from Girl Talk’s Love Struck Valentine’s Album)
On this Valentine’s Day, I just want to thank you for putting up with me. I know I’m not always the best wife or the easiest person to get along with (especially when I’m pregnant). You have shown a lot of patience lately and for that I’m very grateful. I know I gripe and complain a lot, but regardless of what you think, I do actually appreciate you. I know you don’t think I show it enough but I really do love you and need you. I couldn’t make it through this world without you by my side.
p.s. If you could have dinner ready when I get home, that would be great!
You are without a doubt the light of my life. Before you came along, I had no idea that I could love anyone as much as I love you. There are days when you frustrate me to no end with your tantrums and stubbornness, but in the end all it takes is a hug to make me melt into a puddle and forgive you. You are growing up so very fast that I can barely keep up. You are quite the companion these days and I’m really going to miss all of the time we spend together after your baby sister arrives. I guess that will make it even more special when we have a few quiet moments together, just the two of us. I just hope you will always remember that you are my special boy and no one can take your place.
p.s. Please go to bed on time tonight. Your daddy deserves a little snuggling too and I would really like to watch Lost uninterrupted. Thank you in advance.
We have just about six weeks left on this little journey together. Soon you will join your daddy, big brother, and I in the outside world. Each day that goes by I feel a stronger and stronger bond with you. As you move around and push on my belly I feel a connection with you that I just cannot explain. When I place my hand on my belly, you often push back as if you are trying to reach out to me too. Each time it happens feelings of love just wash over me. You are the little girl that I have dreamed of my entire life and I can’t believe that my dream is finally becoming a reality. You are already so very loved by so many people. We absolutely cannot wait to meet you.
p.s. Feel free to start knocking on that door a couple weeks early if you are ready. I would love to have you here by Easter if at all possible.
