letter to my sour patch.

Dear Baby Sour Patch,

You're here! You're so bitty, but you have the cutest shape already. [Thus, your nickname].
I'm only 14 weeks, but I have already felt you move. I think God told you that I was praying for that. Thanks for cooperating.

I know you're going to teach me so much. You already have and you are still in the hidden place.
As you may have guessed, I have not the slightest idea of what will come when you arrive. The good news is that I don't have to be afraid, and neither do you. God promised to be with us both and give us the strength to figure it out together!

Thank you for not making me feel sick. I'm definitely sleepy all the time, but that's just cause I'm helping you grow - your mama is tired! It's all so worth it. I can't wait to hear you laugh and get to know your hand-made personality.

Your daddy is the most handsome, strong, hilarious, creative, and kind man in the whole wide world. How lucky you are that God chose to bring you into the world with him as your father! I can't wait for you to meet him. I think he will cry. [He's sensitive too, by the way].

If I could tell you one thing, it would be that Jesus loves you. More than we ever could. He's knitting you together right now, placing each toe, hair, and bone together exactly where it needs to be. He is with you always and will never leave you. We prayed that you would be ours, and He has given us the amazing gift of being your parents. You're valuable. You're wanted. You're a treasure.

Much more to say, but for now I'll end with I love you! Stay active in there!

Your mama.
