Our family's newest addition!
We can't wait to meet you!

I loved you from the very start, 
You stole my breath, embraced my heart. 
Our life together has just begun, 
You're part of me my precious son. 

As mother with child, each day I grew, 
My mind was filled with thoughts of you. 

I'd daydream of the things we'd share, 
Like late-night bottles and teddy bears. 
Like first steps and skinned knees, 
Like bedtime stories and ABC's. 

I thought of things you'd want to know, 
Like how birds fly and flowers grow. 
I thought of lessons I'd need to share, 
Like standing tall and playing fair. 

When I first saw your precious face, 
I prayed your life be touched with grace. 
I thanked the angels from above, 
And promised you unending love. 

Each night I lay you down to sleep, 
I gently kiss your head and cheek. 
I count your little fingers and toes, 
I memorize you eyes and nose. 

I linger at your nursery door, 
Awed each day I love you more. 
Through misty eyes, I dim the light, 
I whisper "I Love You" every night. 

I loved you from the very start, 
You stole my breath, embraced my heart. 
As mother and child our journey's begun, 
My heart's yours forever my precious son.
