Letters to our First Born…..

When Dennis and I first found out that we were expecting our first baby, I immediately went to Barnes & Noble to buy a journal for him/her. This journal is intended to last a lifetime. Believe me, I do not intend to write in this thing every day, or every week, or even every month, but it is there to record my thoughts/feelings/prayers for our little one as he/she grows up. I plan to give this gift to our child when it's the right time. It could be when they graduate, or get married, or maybe even when he/she is expecting their first child, but it's meant to be a recording of our time together as mommy and son/daughter.

I even taped the reciept in there so that they can see when and how much it was when I purchased it. I think an old receipt will be kind of cool in 20 years. :)


I am a pretty sentimental kind of person. I am so thankful for this gift that God has given. I am nervous about this huge task of raising another life, but I know that God will teach me to be a Godly mother as I grow in Him.

………. and on a much lighter note, my mom blessed us with some pretty cute clothes for both sexes. Obviously, we won't get to use one of these sets of clothes, but I am so excited that our little baby boy/girl will be in one of these sets. :) Since I have never shopped for baby clothes that were intended to go on MY CHILD, it was so so so fun. Thanks for participating in this sweet time in our lives.

What a sweet idea for your little one. It will be a treasure.
And cute, cute clothes! Vivian has the same black dress (2nd pic), so if you have a girl we can dress them alike one Sunday :)
