Dear Baby Bean—
Shortly I will be on my way to see you for the first time and I wanted you to know just how excited I am about it. We are 9 weeks along today, and this is the longest I have ever waited before. While I know that you are in there, to see your little heart beating away will be the greatest thing I can think of. I have complained a lot over the last month or so, but please don’t mistake my complaining for being unhappy. As much as I have been uncomfortable, or sick, I know that you are my gift—you are meant to be, my Bean. Just as it was with your brother and sister before you, I have never been happier, and before we know it, you will be here with all of us.
Until then, I love you more each day—
