Dear Pumpkins

Thanks for all the boredom tips from yesterday. Tammy suggested writing letters to the boys. Since the blog has become a dedication to our boys, I have decided to write one here and I think I might begin to do this often.

Dear Noah & Aaden,

It is hard to put into words what I feel for you or how long you have been wanted. I have dreamed about you since I was a little girl. I have practiced, planned, and prepared to be a Mother almost from birth.

You boys are the missing pieces to mine and Daddy's hearts and lives. For the last five years Mommy and Daddy's hearts have ached from not being able to be parents. Now here I sit with a room started for my gorgeous boys and big kicks in my belly.

The struggle to you has made me stronger and I know that I must struggle because you boys are special and so worth it. With how special you are, you couldn't just be handed to us on the first try without a struggle.

It is amazing how many people already care about you so much. Not a day goes by that I don't thank the lord for bringing both of you into my life.

Now, please hold on little boys. Stay put and grow, grow, grow so that Mommy and Daddy can bring you home healthy in early September or late August.

This morning I opened an email from your Uncle Chach. Inside was a picture of your cousin Gabriel and your Daddy when he was young, this picture shows how much the two of them look a like. I can't help, but to imagine what you boys will look like. Will you look like Daddy? Will you look like Mommy? Will you look like your cousins?
I love you both with all my heart.

AWE! That was so sweet! I'm not pregnant or even close to being at this point, lol, but while I was walking my puppy this morning, I started thinking of what I would say to my baby in a letter. It sounded a little like that-the I'm stronger because of infertility, your daddy and I wanted you so much, your special and so worth it parts! The boys are going to love reading those messages and I love how your husband spelt Aaden's name-it's cute!

That's so beautiful sweetie! I love it and soooo glad you did it. :) I've written memos to our peanut and I hope to one day have him/her read it and know how much he/she was loved so much.

So glad you did it. :)

That was too sweet...I loved reading your blog today. It has been so much fun making new friends through the blog world. This is my fourth month to have a blog. I am amazed at all the unique and fun sites. I am posting about our recent Disney trip and have a couple more posts about our visit with the "Mouse" ....then I will have more than a few posts about a new "grandson" arriving in just a couple of weeks...
