dear peanut

um, would you look at those little headbands?  too cute, right?  i bet you just can't wait to wear them.  i wonder what you look  peach fuzz?  blonde?  brunette?  straight or curly?  whose nose will you have?  whose profile?  ears?  eyes?  so many questions.  your papa and i just can't wait to meet you and discover the answers to all these questions and so many more.

what will your personality be like?  quiet, contemplative, reserved.  boisterous, outspoken, bold.  sweet and shy.  serious and sassy.  will you have your papa's musical ability?  will you have my dramatic tendencies?  will you be an avid reader?  will you have a dash of nerdiness?

so many things are swirling in our minds right now.  we like to talk about you before we fall asleep...and after all the discussion, we just pray.  knowing that God is knitting you together and knows everything about you.  we are comforted by this fact and we look forward to meeting you and discovering who he has made you to be.  sweet girl, we pray that you love Jesus and follow hard after him for your whole life.  may he be your identity, value, and joy.

1 samuel 1:27-28

for this child i prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition that i made to him.  so now i give her to the Lord. for her whole life she will be given over to the Lord.

all our love to you, little peanut.

love, your mama + your papa
