To my baby mouse - 32 weeks
Hello my baby mouse. I feel you inside of me all the time. I feel you wiggle and move about. I feel your daily hiccups. Your brothers and sisters have felt your tiny feet sweep across my ribs. Last night I put my hand by my pubic bone and felt you move your little head back and forth. I cry inside thinking of you. You bring such unmeasurable joy to my soul.
What a strange and amazing experience it is to feel you growing inside of me. To know a life is formed, growing bigger and stronger daily. That you are so unseen to my eyes, but I have been holding you for your entire life. It seems so impossible, and yet here you are. So real and true.
Today I am 32 weeks along. One day soon you will be in my arms. I will finally have the chance to see you, to smell you, to touch your skin. I will finally know you, instead of only seeing you in my dreams. I will look upon you and have the opportunity to give you a name. Your true name.
We will both have gone through the most amazing experience of life. You began so impossibly small. You grew and formed into a perfect little person. You are perfect to me. I will always love you, baby mouse.
I am counting down the days and the weeks until I will meet you for the first time. I can then say, "Hello my baby mouse".
