Dear Baby Fox (32 weeks)

Dear Baby Fox

Sophie's been a little clingy lately...think she knows something's up!

Dear Baby Fox,
  Do you have any idea how crazy I am about you? My heart already overflows with pride and love for you and we haven't even seen your face! I thank God daily for your little life! I've been spending time in your nursery just closing my eyes and dreaming about you. I soooo look forward to meeting you and getting to know you and seeing who you will become! You're a very special little boy!
  Yesterday we celebrated Easter Sunday. I can't wait to teach you all about Easter. See, a long time ago God saw that we as people had become so wrapped up in sin. He knew we needed a Savior, so He sent His Son, Jesus to come and save us!  Jesus had to live a perfect, sinless life and die a death He didn't deserve in order for us to be able to know God. The coolest part about the whole story, Baby Boy, is that after He died, He rose again! It was such a miracle, and it's the reason we can know and love Jesus today! I can't wait for you to come to know Him! Jesus is what this life is all about!
  I won't lie, my strength and patience is wearing thin. However, between our Savior, your daddy, your grandma, as well as several other friends and family, I've got the greatest team cheering you and I on! So instead of wishing the next 8 weeks away, I'm going to try my best to continue to savor each moment of pregnancy...especially afternoon naps :)
  I love you more than you know, sweet boy. Be good in there.
Love, Mama
