Letters to Connor - #1

My Dear Baby Boy,

This is the first of many letters I plan to write to you. I have so much to say and I thought I could write you when the mood strikes. One it will allow me to share my thoughts, feelings, hopes and dreams for you and two, you will learn that your Momma has loved you for oh so long.

I just got back from my Dr. appointment to see how I was doing/feeling and to check your heartbeat. As always, it was strong and loud. The Dr. said you were a happy baby. I know you will be. Your Daddy and I love you so much. Words can't really convey how much. Dr. Patel said that Momma was doing perfect. My weight, measurements and vitals are all doing good. I had a perfect glucose test. As happy as this makes me, I'm twice as happy to know I'm doing a good job at helping you grow.

I've been working so hard on being healthy and making sure your current home is perfect for you. Let me tell you, it's a lot easier said than done sometimes. I hate vegetables. HATE! And if you dislike them too, I will understand why and I won't be too hard on you to eat them. Promise.

You are so active these days. I absolutely adore feeling you move around. Sometimes, you hurt me a little. Just the other night, I was trying to eat dinner and you kicked/punched my tummy and I was forced to stop eating. It made me physically sick. It's hard when you do that but I keep telling myself a active baby is the best type of baby to have.

You are due to arrive in 74 days, which totally amazes me. In less than 3 months, you are going to be home with Daddy and I along with the Zoo kids. I hope you like your "new" home. We are going to start working on your room this weekend. If you don't like it, don't tell me, okay? I've been stressing over making it perfect for you. But regardless of that, I can't wait to be home with you. To watch you grow and nourish you. I want to be the best Momma, keep that in mind. Every decision I make regarding your welfare is in your best interest.

Connor, Momma and Daddy love you and we are so excited to meet you. Stay safe and warm and I will see you in a little while.

With all my love,


  1. This is so very sweet and I know that one day Connor will cherish these letters to him.

  2. This is so, so, sweet. I wrote a letter like this to my daughter when I was pregnant and I cherish it now to see how my dreams have expanded even more for her. I'm sure Conner will love to read it soon.
