I wanted to share, to record, some special moments. Things that happened while you were still growing inside me, so that I will remember them later on, perhaps when things get difficult, or other days, when I just need a reminder of all the reasons I have to smile.

Your Daddy is a very special man. I think we are lucky to have found each other.  The other day he came home from work and I was in the kitchen. He came in and gave me a kiss, which is usual, but then he bent down, lifted my shirt a little and said “Hello Baby” and gave my tummy a kiss. Then he said “Daddy loves you so much!” and I was so overwhelmed with how sweet he is that I just gave him a huge hug and kiss.

It might sound silly to you, but to me it’s so amazing to know how happy he is to be a dad.  There are a lot of problems we have to face, like unpaid maternity leave, preparing your room for when you get here and stuff like that, but knowing that we’re both so happy about it makes all the worries in my heart seem a little less important.  I love him so much for setting my heart at ease, without even having to try.

There was one day this week where we both had a really bad day at work.  When I got home I saw an email from my friend Andrea who lives in Canada now.  She gave me this video to watch and it was so beautiful, I just wanted Daddy to watch it too. But then I thought, being a man he’d probably not find it as wonderful as I did. Well, Button, I was wrong.  Daddy came in to the lounge and sat with his hand on my tummy as we watched this beautiful little video and afterwards we were both just quiet and awed at the beautiful thing that your development is.

Yesterday Daddy was saying how there are many uncertainties, but one thing you’ll have no shortage of is love.

He was right my baby.



Pregnancy Week 20: Special Moments

  1. This is beautiful, what you are writing and the video and music. Of course your husband would be interested in the video! I am older than you and wrote my children letters to give them when they were 18, but this is even better, before birth! Your child will really cherish these!

  2. Thanks, its new every time, every one.I cant help but smile when I help them find a breast and they look up at mom and get “EYE CONTACT” within moments of birth… how come if they dont know what they are looking at .. how come the eye contact ????????????
