there's a first for everything

dear baby walker,

you are only the size of a shrimp in my belly, but i am your mother.
ya, it scares me too.
but you, little shrimp, have already brought so much happiness into this world.
it makes me so happy when i get to hear you little heart beat inside me. when i get to read about your
development from week to week.
you have fingerprints already. fingerprints!
i will never forget the smile on your dad's face when we found out you were coming.
it was a big one.
you have grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, great-grandparents, and others who can't wait to meet you.
november couldn't be farther away.
but you are mine and i am yours, forever.

i love you to the moon and back,

    Love, (Auntie) Melissa
