Mon Petit Escargot,
I truly hope that God grants you the virtue of patience in a larger dose than he granted me. In fact, it is definitely one I hope to instill in you, and I'll soon be looking up ways to do so. Because your mama is the most impatient person of all....which highly contradicts with her desire to make things last as long as possible.
I cannot wait to smell your sweet skin. I even can't wait to change diapers. I can't wait until they place you in my arms and I feel this weight in my arms that is love overflowing.
But, in keeping with my impatient nature I can't wait until the coming years either. The first time you "cook" me something in your play kitchen. The first thing you color me that I display proudly. The first time we play hide and seek when you're still young enough to not know that sometimes mamas prolong the seeking part. The first time I hear you read part of your bedtime story.
I'm looking down that road and I am thrilled beyond anything I can even comprehend. This journey can take as long as it needs to, with as many twists and turns. In the end, no matter what, you will be perfection personified.
