Dear Little One,

Your Mama is really looking forward to meeting you, but the past few weeks have been a bit of a failure in the attitude department.
You see, I've been kind of a grouch, and your Daddy and big brother have unfortunately gotten the brunt of it.
There were a lot of days that Mama was very sore and tired and grumpy. I can be quite vain, and starting to outgrow my favorite clothes made me upset at times. I was finally starting to get some good exercise habits, but suddenly I felt too exhausted, and could only think of curling up for a long sleep.

But that isn't your fault. You're just trying to grow! The doctor says you are healthy, and so far Mama is too, so there really isn't anything to gripe about, now is there?

So I'm making a promise to you today. Mama isn't going to resent one more minute of this special time we have. I'm going to make sure we both get enough rest, and every morning we'll spend some quiet time making sure there is plenty of day for the things that need to be done. I've bought some nice clothes that will fit me while you're still getting ready for the world, and I even have plans to make some, now that I've got a little more energy.

We have plans for some adventures over the summer, and although you won't be able to see what's going on, we'll take pictures to show you later.
Your big brother Sean is a rough and tumble little guy, and he doesn't really know about you yet, but I know that he is going to love it when you arrive!
Your Daddy also is excited that you are coming soon. He talks about you alot, and is sure that you are another boy. Either way, we will find out next month!

I can't wait to meet you in November and hold you close.

                                                      Mama loves you, Little One!

Hannah, your "little one" will treasure this letter some day. You are such a loving mother and I can see how much you love your new baby. God bless you with health and strength for the challenges of motherhood and grace for each new day. The great thing about days is that they come one at a time. Love, Mom
