a letter to our son.

Dear Son,

In a few short days, you will make your entrance to the world.
Your mom and I are very anxious, nervous, and most of all excited for your arrival.
For the past 9 months, you don't know it, but you've been a part of our lives already.
We've brought you along on our daily routines, outings and family gatherings.
We hope we didn't bore you too much.

Every couple weeks, with the help of the doctor, we checked in on you.
To make sure you were healthy, comfortable, and growing.
You did everything you were expected to do.
And we were in awe of every moment.

We knew eventually, you could hear us. Probably just murmurs to you really.
But we talked to you often.
Mostly asking you just to stop kicking the crap out of mom's insides.
Sometimes you'd listen, but most of the time, you had your own schedule.

So now, months have become days... hours really.
You are about to have a lifetime ahead of you.
And please know that want only the best for you.
As your parents, we promise to be the best we can.

We promise to;
Be strong as we can be for you.
Guide you to make the right decisions.
Take you on many adventures.
Show you how to have fun.
Teach you everything we can.
Allow you to grow and explore.
Make you feel safe.
Keep you warm.
And most of all... give you all the love we are able to give.

Know now, that we are bound to make mistakes along the way.
Our mistakes will be honest ones.
We will learn too.
In fact, you will probably teach us far more then we could ever teach you in return.
And we are looking forward to every single moment.

Mom and Dad
