Sweet Experience

Today I got a surprise! 3 Packages! :) One was a case for Tyler's Laptop, another a wireless router that M om and Dad Melling promised to send us [with a wonderful gift card to subway for William and I.... YUMMMM!!! BTW thanks Mom and Dad Melling! ;)] and the third package had binders with Tyler's memories and accomplishments placed carefully in sleeves. Mom Melling sent them with a little baby hat (that I assume was Tylers). I immediately started going through his binders! I just couldn't help myself! I guess I'm just a snooper! ;) It was fun going through endless choir announcements for performances, report cards, certificates of excellence, school pictures, and artwork that Tyler had made.  One binder had quite an enchanting story about an armadillo that lost his armor.(Which Tyler wrote and colored the pictures). I don't know if it's the pregnancy hormones or what but I found myself tearing up a little bit. I can see my son growing up just like his daddy. What a wonderful bond they will have too! Like father like son. Even looking at Tyler when he was so little made me think of how much William will look like him! The thought even came to my mind "I can't wait until William gets here and I can read his cute stories about armadillos that lose their armor." So anyway I guess I didn't really need to post about this sweet experience. I could have probably just said on Facebook that I felt close to William today, but I guess I just wanted to express the feelings behind the experience.That it is possible for mothers to feel close to their little ones before they are born. That they are already  sweet little people in our minds. With a bright future and most importantly the love we already feel for them. At least I know for myself that I love my son and I can't wait to hold him in my arms. So I guess here begins the countdown to that first meeting. 12 weeks and counting! :D

  1. I read this right after reading a quote on pinterest that said this Don't marry a man unless you would be proud to have a son just like him. Looks like you've done well for yourself mrs melling! Good luck with these last few weeks!
