Learn More About Me

Dear SuperBaby,

I haven't written as much to you lately as I did when we first learned of you. I can honestly tell you, it is because we've been so busy preparing for you that every night when I go to bed, I'm exhausted! You won't even recognize our house (well of course you won't, you've never been here before. Duh. Silly Mama.) because of everything we've done to make it your home too. 

You have your own bedroom! I worked so hard on it. I tried to be WonderMom and do it all on my own, but just as you will learn too, sometimes we need help from others. To be honest, you have the best room in our home. I know you'll love it. I go in there a lot and just sit in your chair and look around. I imagine you in your crib, or on my lap listening to me read you books. Last night I went in and just read my own book. Today, your Dad and GrandMan are going to pick up your dresser, and then your room will be mostly complete. I have my eye on the mobile I want for above your crib, and you are going to love it. Being in your room makes me feel closer to you, even though you've never been there. Even though we've never met.

Next week will be our last Christmas without you. For the past three Christmases I've always had this picture in my head of announcing to our families that we're having a baby, and this year, it's real. They all already know, so the picture is a little different, but you're already here in our hearts. Next Christmas will be so much different than the 26 we've experienced before this one. Next Christmas you will be nine months old. If I were better about reading my Baby's First Year book I could tell you what you'll be doing then, but I haven't made it past the newborn part of the book. In fact, I don't think I've even made it to the leaving the hospital part. Maybe I'll read it in real time. Like a manual. What do you think?

I realize that last paragraph might make you nervous to have me as a mom. Let me tell you, SuperBaby, you're not the only one. Your Dad is nervous too. He keeps telling me that he has no idea what he is doing. I'm probably not making a better case for us, am I? If it makes you feel any better, we're told that you never really know what you're doing until you experience it. And since you've never had parents before, I think you'll love us just because we love you so much. And because you have an awesome room. And because we're really cool people. And we know really cool people. And our Netflix has a kid section (even though you're not allowed to watch cartoons as much as your Dad does).

I hope you know how much we love you. You're already the center of our world, and we cannot wait to meet you. 
Until then, I love you.
