Gifts, Fears and Team Work

June 9

I bought daddy a present. I can't say what it is just yet for fear he may read this and find out, but it's special. I think he deserves something special. He's been working really hard to make a better life for us when you get here. It's not easy being pregnant, everyone knows that but it's not easy being the daddy to be either. There are a lot of stresses to deal with and a lot of unknowns. I think that if he could feel you kicking inside the way I do it would ease all the worries like it does for me. But that's just not the way it works.

Besides, all the work, stress and fears will all be worth it when we get to hold you in our arms. I'm pretty sure your daddy will cry. He's a big softy that way. I catch him crying at the mooshy parts of movies all the time. I've never said it before but it's one of the little things that I adore about him. I can't wait to see him as a father. I couldn't have picked a better man to play the part.

Some times I'm afraid that you'll be closer to your father then me. It's been a fear that I've always had. He's so loving and playful, silly and eager to make everyone happy. He'll be the one to help you break the rules and sneak you junk food when I'm not looking. And I'm going to be the enforcer of rules, who fights your battles, heals your wounds, nourishes you, and cuddles you to sleep on a stormy night.

Together your father and I will make the greatest team. You may be an adult before you are able to see it that way, but we'll always do what ever we can to give you the best possible life. I promise you that.

Geez Kim...I'm here sitting at my desk at work on the verge of becoming a blubbering fool after reading your post.

I know how extra special Kevin is. He and I sort of go back ;) Having watched him grow up before my eyes into a handsome, strong, caring man...I agree that he will be an amazing dad. And he couldn't have picked a more extra special woman to share and grow his life with!

You are the yin to his yang and together you'll both give this baby a loving home with the best of both worlds.

This baby will be very lucky to have you two as parents...and a very supportive extended family who will always be there to help you through the challenges and celebrate the milestones.

And Hopefully Auntie Anne will be close by to enjoy it all with us! ;) My fingers are still crossed.
