Letters to Little Miss

Letters to Little Miss.
Baby girl,
This is my first letter to you, although you’ve been hearing an earful from your mama for a while now.
You are such a magical, new thing in my life. Some parts of you feel so familiar to me already. Your movements and kicks, the rounding of my belly and this ache in my back. But there are parts of our journey so far that are distinctly yours. Time spent imagining your face. Trying different names out on my tongue.
For now, I study your last ultrasound photos - looking closely at the perfect curve of your head,and the grainy photo of your nose and lips. There is something about this tiny peek into you becoming you that keeps linger in my thoughts. That perfect nose, those little lips that already look so much like ones I kiss daily- you feel like everything I know and yet, remarkably different.
I am awed by what you have become in 6 months time and how much you’ve shifted and shaped our family already. We are making room for you in every part of our home and hearts. We await your newness. Anticipate your familiarity. And can not wait for you to arrive.
Your Mama
