a letter for our baby boy

Dear Griffin,

It is hard for me to believe that it is already time for you to be here. Pretty soon I will be holding you in my arms! Your daddy and I love you so much already & have been crazy about you since the first moment we knew about you.

Griffin, I am so excited for you to meet your big brother. I never got the opportunity to have that brother or sister relationship & it makes me pretty giddy to know that you have a built-in best friend for life. Grayson doesn't really understand that he is getting a baby brother, but I know he will love you & teach you so many things. You boys are lucky to have one another & I pray that y'all cherish that relationship always!

We were so excited to find out you were a boy. I was even more excited when we decided on your name: Griffin Andrew. It made you seem so much more real & I could start praying for you by name.  My biggest prayer for your life is that you desire to have a relationship with the Lord. He loves you so much & has big plans for your life! I hope you know just how loved you are...always.

I can't wait to meet you & see who you look like. I can't wait to watch you develop your own little personality. I can't wait to watch you & Grayson develop a relationship and become best friends. I can't wait to hold you, kiss you, snuggle you, and love on you! 

Your big brother was the one who made me a mama & now you are making us a family of four.  I am so thankful for that! Griffin, I am sure I will tell you this a million different times throughout your life, but, I love you more than you will ever know!

Love, Mama

I am so excited for you all!! I love the idea that Big G made you all parents but Little G is making you all 4. What a sweet way to think about it :)

Lots of prayers and positive thoughts for a safe and happy delivery day!
