A Letter To Emilie.

To Emilie, 

Well, today marks the first day of my ninth month of your pregnancy and I'm not going to lie.. I'm so surprised everyday that we got this far. Between my problems with previous pregnancies and the scares that we have had with you over the past 36 weeks, I count my blessings everyday that you are strong and healthy. 

We are all ready now. We just need you. We have your Moses baskets set up, one in the bedroom and one in the living room. Your blankets are folded in your draw and your wardrobe is bursting with more clothes than I think I've owned in my entire life.

We are all so excited to meet you. James keeps asking "Does Emilie want to see what I look like?" and each time I reply.. "Off course, she cannot wait to meet you!" I think he thinks that you are going to come out walking and talking but either way he cannot wait to be a big brother. Your Daddy and I constantly talk about what it will be like when you are here. Just today your Auntie Me-me sent me and email telling me about how she is so excited that you will be here in just a few weeks! Your whole family is literally waiting on tenterhooks! 

I am nervous about your birth. Not because of the pain. That is a small price to pay but just because I want you to arrive safely and happy. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I can have the home birth that I really want. I think it will be nicer for both me and you if you arrive into the world when I am more relaxed and at ease and I think I can achieve that at home. 

It feels like it's been a very long nine months and now that we are nearing the end I find myself becoming impatient. I want to hold you, to feel the weight of you in my arms and to smell that newborn smell. I know though that I should cherish the remaining time that you are there in my stomach. You will be here soon enough and I know that afterwards I am going to miss feeling your wriggles and pokes. Today you have spent nearly the whole day with one of your knees poking out of the side of my stomach. I love it though and each one of those movements makes me smile. 

So, just know that we cannot wait to meet you. You are so loved already and we know that you are going to complete our family. 

Lots of love always 

Mummy xx
