To My Daughter

Dear Kendall Paige,
I can hardly believe in just a few short days I will be meeting you. Everyone says that pregnancy goes by so fast but I feel like I have been waiting forever to meet you. I have longed to be a mom and know that it is something I was born to do. I feel so blessed that I get to be YOUR mom. You have been such a good inside baby and I just know you are going to be even more amazing on the outside.
I promise to shower you with affection and make sure you know every day how much I love you. Your grandma has been an amazing mommy to me and I hope I am half the mommy to you, I have big shoes to fill. I promise to do my best, for you, every day. If you need a friend, I will be here. If you need someone to listen, I will lend you my ear. If you have to cry, cry on my shoulder. I promise to never judge.

Your daddy is going to be amazing too. He is so excited to have a little girl and keeps talking about all the things he wants to teach you. Some of them you may not like, like hunting, but always know he means well. I know that from the moment he lays eyes on you, you will have him wrapped around your little finger. Daddy's girl.

I know I have been crabby the past few weeks but it's just because I am so anxious to meet you. I can't wait to see what/who you look like. I want to know what color your hair is. Will you get my big brown eyes or daddy's baby blues? From the ultrasound pictures it looks like you have daddy and Grandma Kim's nose. I want to see your personality and hear your voice. Most of all I can't wait to hold you in my arms and kiss your already chubby cheeks.

My sweet sweet girl, I love you so much already my heart feels like it may burst. I know that the minute I see you I am going to be putty in your tiny hands. I hope you always know how much I love you. You are my world and I can't wait to be your mommy. I know I am going to miss feeling you swimming and dancing around but that will pale in comparison to seeing all that you do outside. I think about all of the milestones you will cross and I can't wait to share them all with you. You have already brought so much joy to our family and I know as each year passes you will continue to fill this family with smiles, love, and joy.

I love you baby girl. See you soon!
