Dear Baby E-
Well, mommy’s never been in this position before. Sitting at home with nothing happening on your due date. I’m not sure what this says about your personality, but I’m ready to meet you to find out.
True to form, Aunt Emily (who you will not be named after) wrote a letter to you yesterday. If you think your mommy is blunt, just wait until you meet Aunt Emily. She says exactly what she means. *ETA: Aunt Emily was very upset that I didn’t share her letter to you. So, here you go. Don’t say I didn’t warn you:
To begin with, I can’t wait to meet you! I will be there Feb. 23, 2012 to love on you and hold you and figure out how to change your poopy cloth diapers. I can’t wait!
However, you have to come out. I can’t go inside your mommy’s tummy and meet you…that is impossible, and I really don’t want to climb up her vag…not a place for Auntie Em. So please make your way to the birth canal and make your earthly appearance.
Also, you have two excited, adorable, smart, kind and helpful sisters that can’t wait to meet you either! They may do things to drive you crazy, but it’s only because they love you and won’t be able to get enough of you!
Lastly, if you don’t come out soon everyone is getting worried your legal name will be Boris. While it will always be your ‘name’ in my eyes, it’s not your legal name and your mommy is torturing people because she won’t tell them your name until she has your sweet, beautiful face to go with it. So please please please hurry up and have your birth day!!!
Love, the one and only,
And, then this morning, daddy wrote you a letter. Daddy is ready for his 2 weeks of leave and spending time with you.
Your sisters are ready and waiting. I think they are convinced that maybe you won’t be coming this month. Please prove them wrong!
Sweetheart, mommy really wants to meet you. Like really. Like mommy doesn’t want an induction, but it’s sure sounding good right now. So, if you could start working your magic soon, that would be great.
Because, you see, mommy is starting to go a little crazy.
Crazy like I got these awesome (you’ll learn, mommy is sarcastic a lot) sunglasses to review, and um, yeah, they aren’t mommy’s style at all. Unless you think mommy channels Tom Cruise or Joey on Friends. But, because of the crazy, not only did I put them on (without taking off the “impact resistant” sticker) but I also snapped a picture, shared it with friends, and all of you.
So, please, help mommy stop the crazy and come on out and meet us. We really aren’t all this crazy.
I love you and can’t wait to meet you.
