A Love Letter

Dear Vincent,

I've written a thousand letters to you in my head.  I've drafted them and told you all the beautiful things I've wanted to say to you, but here we are and you're already passed viability and I'm finally sitting down and making thoughts into words.

Sweet boy, I'm so excited to meet you.  April seems like a million years away and yet I know it'll be here in the blink of an eye.  You have an amazing brother who is so excited to meet you (and talks about you, "Vint") and aunts and uncles and grandparents and great grandparents and all sorts of people who want to be part of your life.  This world is so beautiful, little one.  I can't wait for you to experience it.

And you'll be born a brother.  I hope you and Anthony are best friends.  I hope that you live and laugh and grow together and forgive each other after you fight and never go to sleep angry.  You have a built in playmate, someone who has waited for you and is still waiting. He prays for you every night, love. He'll fight for you like no one else will.

I pray that you're safe, little one.  I pray that your birth and life is extraordinary.  We're waiting patiently to meet you, but until then I'll take comfort in your gentle movements and the sounds of your heart beating.

I love you,
Big brother stoked after finding out you were a boy
