Today is your due date. This very day has been on our hearts and in our minds for months and months. We have been holding onto this day like a precious gift. But today, now that it is here, I realize that it is just another day. Far more important is the day that God has chosen for us. They day when you are finally ready to arrive. I long for that day. I know that it is out of our control, that neither you or I can independently chose to be wrapped in each others arms. But I know that it is soon.

We are excited for all of your firsts, introducing you to the things we love. We know that there are many first that every child experiences. We are more excited about the firsts that are special moments in time. We are excited to take you sailing, watch you play in the sand at the shore, bring you to your first lacrosse game. These are the things we dreamed of enjoying with you for as long as we have known each other. These are the moments we talked about before we even began our family.
I want you to arrive today. I have wanted you to arrive every day for weeks. But I am confident that your arrival will be perfect, no matter when it is.
Not much change in the past three weeks.
