To my sweet little bun-bun,
Every kick and flutter, every tip that makes my balance a little off and I catch myself before I fall down, every time I feel your head or your feet press again the stretched skin of my belly I smile as my heart bursts again. It bursts with joy at the miracle of you. It bursts with joy because you are already a part of our family and conversations and goodnight hugs and kisses. And it bursts because I'm almost sad, with this most likely being the last time I'll carry a wee one this way... and the fact that it's almost halfway over has me deciding to never blink again, because it's true what they say, "just blink and it's over." So I'm relishing the small things, like each moment I get with you. I'm enjoying the few times that I have an excuse to take a much-needed cat nap and let the rest of the day's worries fall to the wayside. I smile as I chuck clothing that no longer fits out of the closet and return to my few remaining pieces as I come up with something "new" to wear, something that shows you off. 'Cause I'm a proud mama already, and I can't wait to show you off to the world. Or maybe I'll be a proud mama, but keep you all to myself for awhile in the comforts of our little room, cuddling and snuggling and letting your big brother and big sister banter at the wonder that is you.
Baby bunny, we love loving you.
xo, Your mama.
Happy weekend, lovies!
