It’s the last day of 2020 and I just wanted to write a little note to you. We, at this stage, have just a few weeks to go until we meet you and I’m definitely gonna cry while I write this.
2020 has been a huge year. Huge! And sometimes it’s been really hard. And sometimes it’s been really wonderful.
Your daddy and I, we got married this year, and that was our dream! To go to Mexico and to elope and to have the wedding that we wanted, and it was the most perfect day. I’m so grateful for that. Always. And then, everything changed this year.
There’s been a pandemic, which is pretty rare. It’s something that the world hasn’t seen for a long time, well in this way. So, you know, a lot of our plans changed. And we sort of decided, maybe we should have you! And here we are!
We’re very blessed that we were able to conceive you so easily. We are now just a few weeks away after cooking you in my tummy all year. I just can’t believe I’m going to meet you!
Sometimes I feel really scared and nervous. Our whole life’s about to change. And everything I knew before, it’s different. But I also get to meet you really soon and that’s pretty darn exciting!
It’s kinda special that I got to be pregnant over Christmas and New Year. You were grown over 2020/ 2021. People will always be like, “wow, you were born in that time!” It’s gonna be really unique.
I feel excited … now. For a long time it was hard for me to say that I felt excited. I mean, it’s a long time, actually growing you. It takes eight months, well nine months, but, 7.5 months of knowing that I was pregnant. It’s really hard to be excited for that amount of time! And there’s been a lot of things that we needed to do in the meantime, including getting through everything, work and life and all that.
But now, we feel like everything’s almost ready. I think we’ve got all the things we need… well, you never really are truly ready. But now … I just want to meet you (CRYING!) I just want to see what you look like and get to know you and know who you are and get to help you grow on the outside and guide you through life.
We are so blessed. We have family and friends who love you already. You’re just gonna be so loved by so many. It’s so lovely because they love your mum and dad so much that they love you too. And you’re going to be wonderful and they’re going to get to know you and love you because of who you are as well.
So I make a promise to you my little baby that I will just be here to guide you always. I just want you to be whoever you are. And I will love you for who you are.
It’s my privilege to join your journey and for you to join mine. We’re gonna do this together. Your daddy, me and you.
So stay safe in there for a few more weeks and I will see you real soon. I can’t wait to give you a kiss and cuddle. I do love you already my baby.
Happy New Year. And regardless of what happens in the world, 2021 will always be our most special year because we get to meet you.
