Tears of joy

Eight months ago hubby and I found out that we were expecting (actually, I found out first and surprised him with the news… you can read my post about the thin plastic peed on stick.

Eight months ago…
Delight, worry, joy and fear all rushed through me like waves across the shore. My thoughts became consumed by dreams of what it might be like, what the baby will look like, if it’s a girl (oh my gosh would I know what to do with a girl), how will things change and how fun it will be to once again have an infant in our home.

Tonight (or very early in the morning)…
We will meet this precious child that has been growing in my belly. For the first time, I will be able see the face that’s been hidden in my womb and touch the tiny toes that have been dancing beneath my skin. As these words flow through my fingertips those waves of emotion are rippling through me once again and I am anxious for this evening to come… to meet my child.

Dear little one, I want you to know…
Without ever having seen you, I love you.
I am filled with happiness by the thought of you.
Tears of joy blur my eyes.
I look forward to the first kiss that I will lay gently upon your soft skin.
You will forever be my child.
And I am honored to be your mom.

  1. Just beautiful! This brought tears to my eyes, Tiffanie.Just like Dawn, my youngest is 3. And just like you, I have all boys…and would be asking the same question: What do I do with a GIRL?? :-)You’ll figure it out. You figured out the boys, didn’t you?I’m sure I’ve missed it by now, but I can’t wait to see pictures!!


  2. How touching..it brings all those emotions back to the surface reading this!My youngest is 3 and while I would love nothing more than to have another…I know that God has other plans.Hope you have a painless and quick recovery!Congrats again and again!
