eeeeeek! That sounds so crazy to me. My SON?!
Our life has been so filled with pink and ruffles and baby dolls and little girls these last four years, it just amazes me that God has blessed us with a son. A boy. Trucks and bugs and baseball and blue. I still have to pinch myself because I cant believe it.
To my soon-to-be son,
I cant believe that in just a few short days I will have you in my arms, it blows me away. Every time I see you on an ultrasound (which is once a week!) I have them double check that your still a boy because I still am in shock. Your sisters have completely won us over with their love for dress up clothes, baby dolls, pink and all things sparkly and frilly, and to think that our family will soon have a precious little boy is hard to comprehend. I wonder every single day who you will look like, who you will act like, what your demeanor will be, what you will think of your silly sisters, and what they will think of you. Your daddy is so funny, he has had this sudden urge to be more ‘manly’ before you arrive, he told me he wants to start watching football and hes even growing a beard (mommy is NOT a fan!). He wants to be sure he is ready to be a good father to his first son, he is so in love with you already.
I am more pregnant right now than I ever was with your sisters, and while the days are long and this pregnancy hasn’t been easy I am thankful for every day that you stay in to bake a little longer. The ultrasound I had two weeks ago estimated you at almost 9 pounds so we think you will be a pretty big baby, and if you could see the size of my stomach right now you would believe that for sure. I have outgrown every maternity shirt I own except for two, so I am thankful to be on bedrest and not need to get dressed or go out in public anywhere! Your nursery is all ready, its decorated in navy blue and grey with a nautical/whale theme and it came together really cute! I am so excited just to have you home, our hearts couldn’t be more ready to love and snuggle you.
I am so excited to see what the following weeks and months hold baby boy, I just know you are the perfect fit for our family and I cant wait to see what its like to become a family of five. FIVE! Daddy likes to say “the Fazio five” so I suppose that’s what we will be known as from now on. I feel like our lives are just about complete, all we are waiting for is YOU.
I love you to the moon and back,
