Words cannot express the amount of love I have for you. When I heard people say, "I never knew this type of love existed" I didn't understand what they meant. How could I? Plus, I thought it couldn't be any stronger than the love I have for your fur sisters - because God knows they consumed my heart & thoughts before you. Now, I have YOU, this actual human being, inside me that I've watched grow from one inch to three inches and now you're 16 inches! You're constantly reminding me that you're here with kicks and punches. You like it when I laugh and when you hear your daddy's voice. I KNOW you now - We have made you - I completely understand what all the other moms are talking about. It's a level of love I've only read about in the Bible. A level of love so much stronger than the love I have for your daddy. A love that I don't think you'll ever understand until you become a mother. I sit and wonder how God could love me so much no matter how terrible I can be. I get it now.
I want you to know that I'll need your patience and trust. I'm obviously new to this and still petrified at the thought of being responsible for every breath you take. It will take some learning, on my behalf, on how to manage this love I have for you. I'm certain that I will disappoint you and let you down at some point. I hope you can take my hand and know that we are in this together. You are MINE forever.
I love you baby,
