today is the day

Dear Addelyn,
Today is the day you are coming into this world.  Today is the day that you will forever change my life.  Your daddy and I have been looking forward to your birth for so long now.  I hope I have provided you a good "home" over these past ten months. I hope to provide you a good home for the rest of your life. It has been an honor carrying you with me, feeling you move and grow inside of me.  You are truly a blessing.  I can't wait to watch you grow up, to watch you become the beautiful woman I know you will be.  Always know that your momma loves you unconditionally.  I have loved you since you were just a thought, a desire, in my mind.  I promise to support you, to nurture you and encourage your independence.  I will always be here for you.  I will always be your mother.  Thank you for already amazing me in so many ways.  I love you and can't wait to start our journey together. 
Love Always,

Dear Addelyn,
As I am writing this letter to you, your mommy and I are just a few hours from meeting you for the very first time.  Apparently you are a pretty big girl, you mommy has to deliver you via c-section.  For the past nine months we have worked very hard to make sure that when you come home in a few days everything is perfect!! I could barely sleep last night because I was so excited for today.  I can't wait to see you and Mommy together, I think you are going to look just like her!
  I know that you won't remember today but there are so many family members and friends that are so excited to meet you.  I promise you that I will take care of you and your mom every day of my life.  I am a very lucky man to have you both. 
  The Dr. days that you have a lot of hair and weighed 7 lbs & 15 oz last Wednesday.  I can't wait to see you in person.  You have a bunch of cute clothes to wear, I have already got you some Dallas Cowboys and Dallas Mavericks onesies and dresses.  I have a feeling that you will love sports and especially love our Mavs & Cowboys. 
  I love you so much Addy!! I can't wait to watch you grow up and become an amazing woman.
P.S. no dating till you are at least 30!!
