Dear Baby Bronco,
I can’t begin to describe how happy I am. We found out about you just a few days ago: April 26, 2013 to be precise. What amazing news! I’ve been hoping and praying for you for some time now. I just love being a Father, and I can’t wait for another little baby!
We’re going to do our best to not find out about your sex until your birth. We have names, basically, picked out either way! If you’re a boy – we’ve had your name picked out for a LONG time! If you turn out to be a girl, well, I think we’ve got it figured out. We’re still talking about that, though.
One of the most amazing things about being parents is learning how much more love we are capable of, how much more room for love and laughter there is in our lives, and how much more in love we will continue to grow, your Mother and I, through the process. We learned this lesson with your sister Lily – the love in our lives has grown exponentially! We’re still learning this lesson. And now we’re in for more!
Having been through this once already, I think I’m even more amazed that you – the little child who will laugh, cry, climb, eat, sing, dance, cuddle, and hopefully sleep 🙂 – that you are infinitesimally small right now. That God is knitting you together in your mother’s womb, causing you to grow, and soon to thrive, is simply amazing. That so much life and love could start out so small – that is truly amazing.
I love you little child. You are already blessing and enriching my life in so many ways. I can’t wait to meet you.
