We’re having a baby!!!!!! No dream has ever been greater than this! Gabriel and I, from friends, to partners, to lovers, to soon to be husband and wife, are now going to be Mom and Dad to this little peanut! Mindblown. No words will ever be able to describe this feeling…. but wow… our love literally created LIFE! Thank you God for blessing us, we yearned for this little one so whole heartedly, and are so incredibly grateful!
A few months ago on Stories, I almost blew the surprise! I was so excited when I found out that Gabriel and I are going to be parents that I told you guys I’d received the best news I’ve ever received in my life…many of you guessed it, and it’s true! We’re having a BABY (we find out the gender later today!!!) that we could not be more excited to welcome into this word! This little one is a pure lovechild! Words will never be able to describe this surreal feeling, knowing that life is growing inside of me, how much love I’m filled with everyday, and knowing that he or she, will make us a family.
I woke up early one morning soon after finding out that we’re expecting, and was filled with so many overwhelming emotions, I wrote a letter to our baby. It’s the best way I know how to share with you just how in love with this little one I am, so here it is…
To our baby
My little love, the moment I found out you were going to be entering this world to be mine and your daddy’s, you filled me with this feeling of happiness, excitement, and hope like I’ve never felt before. I’ve always dreamed of you, dreamed of what you would be like, dreamed of the nights in pjs eating ice cream on the couch watching movies together, dreamed of who you’ll some day become, undoubtedly someone I’ll be very proud of. But for now, I dream of what it will be like to hold your tiny body, feel your soft skin, and smell your cheeks. I already love you so much and would do anything and everything for you.
You were made into this world out of nothing but love ❤️ Your daddy and I are as in love as two people can be and we wanted you so badly. I never thought I could love anyone as much as I love your daddy, but that’s how much I already love you. Maybe you’ll have his eyes, his unselfish heart, patience, and moves! (He’s the best salsa dancer!) Maybe you’ll have my drive and willingness to approach life with an open heart, trusting that the world is good and will give you the beautiful life you deserve. Whoever you are, whoever you decide to become, who to love, how you choose to live your life, is yours, and I will unconditionally love you, I can promise you that.
When I first found out you are making me a mommy, I would wake up early every morning, feeling this sense of amazement and awe, that you are being created inside of me, and that you’ve made me a new person. Of all the dreams I’ve had in life, to be a singer, tour the world, have great success, you have always been my greatest dream, what I ultimately wanted most out of life, to be YOUR mommy. Thank you for choosing me, choosing us as your parents, we are so blessed you are ours and will try our best to give you everything you deserve. Just remember, the greatest things in life are intangible: dreams, faith, and ultimately love. You made us a family, and your family will always love you more than you know.
Thank you guys for being so much a part of this journey…you’re always so kind and incredibly supportive and you have no idea how much that truly means to G and I, especially during this time! I’ll be updating you lots along the way.. already feeling so welcomed and grateful for the incredible community of mamas that have embraced me and started shedding their wisdom! Hope you’re all having an amazing weekend! We’re off to my parents house now to finish decorating because we’re having our gender reveal party today!!! We’ll try to post lots on Stories! Love you guys oxoxoxo

Jessi, this is probably the most touching post I have ever read. Maybe it’s because I am so close to you being your mama. I read it with tears in my eyes as I remembered the nine months I was pregnant with you and the excitement and love that I felt for the little munchkin growing inside me . I was older than you and had to have an amniocentesis to make sure you were fine. The day dad and I found out that you were 100% healthy, without any health issues and that you were a GIRL . . . dad and I were over the moon. We are thrilled for you and Gabriel and know you will make fine parents. And, having the gender reveal in our home today with family and friends attending made it that much more special. And it was amazing that those who were not here were on “FaceTime” to be able to share the moment with us. Love this new technology! We never had reveal parties in our days but I like this new tradition which welcomes the baby that much earlier. This baby is definitely loved already. We have never seen you happier and you’re glowing! And G, well he has been walking on a cloud . . . the same one you’re on. May this baby take all the best qualities from each of you as you have from daddy and I. We love you and can’t wait to meet the new little munchkin who will dictate your lives when she decides to make her debut to the world!
So beautiful I’m tearing up reading this! Thank you for all your kind words Mom <3 Love you more than anything!! I LOVED my party yesterday, thank you so much for organizing everything it was beyond beautiful!! Love you <3 Xo
Congratulations!! What a beautiful letter. You’re already an amazing mom with your unconditional love and support.
Aww you’re too sweet that made my day babe!!! Thank you for your kind words and so happy to share this news with you!! Stay tuned Xoxo

Whether or not,Jamie Meder Browns Jersey, this interest might be paid along together with the deposit to get the ultimate help formaking homemade candles.
