Letter to Baby

Dear Baby (Name to be determined ^_^),

Mommy and Daddy are so excited to meet you!

You’re still only 12½ weeks, but you’re already almost three inches long. You’re growing so fast, and Mommy can’t wait to start to feel you moving in her belly!

We don’t even know if you’re a little boy or a little girl. But there are a lot of things that we DO already know. We know that we want you to grow up knowing how very much we love you. And we want you to know how much Mommy and Daddy love each other. You’re lucky, because your parents are best friends. We’re all going to have so much fun together!

We don’t know if our home will be filled with matchbox cars and baseball gloves or if we’ll be picking up princess dresses and costume jewelry. We don’t know if you’ll be wearing prom dresses or renting tuxedos. But we do know that we’re excited to play with you whether it’s GI Joes or Barbie dolls, to watch as you learn how to play catch and drive a car.

So for now, just keep growing. We don’t care WHAT you are. We just want you to be happy and healthy. We’ll see you soon!


  1. Aw, how sweet! Congrats on being 12.5 weeks along...wow, that went fast!!! This is exactly the sentiment I feel about our future children...I want them to grow up to be whatever makes them happy, I will love them no matter what:) And remember, girls can like trucks/Star Wars too!!!

  2. Sarah - if we have a girl, there really isn't any doubt that she'll be exposed to lots of Star Wars, cars and trucks, and boyish things... her mom's a tomboy! ^_^ And regardless of sex, this baby will get a baseball glove and learn to play catch. Not to mention learning the Red Sox lineup and the lyrics to "Sweet Caroline"!!!

  3. Congratulations!! I can't wait to follow you along for the next several months.


All the world's a stage! But for now, just type your soliloquy here.
