They say the sweetest sound on earth is a baby's noises, it’s first cooing and rapture at the world. I’m sure that yours will be particularly atoning and I fondly look forward to those days.
This week, the sweetest sounds ringing in my ears have been the delight and joy met by our announcement. The warmth and love with which you will be brought into this world, not only from your mom and dad, but a community of family and friends, has doubled my heart in size.
You received your first gifts this week and I received a baby carriage charm to add to my bracelet. Major has also taken to resting his head on my belly, a behavior that seems to clearly signify an early bonding with you. These have been precious moments that seem to freeze time.
