If You Were Here...

Peanut -

If you were still here with us, I imagine you would be getting the biggest kick out of Momma's growing tummy.  My mind has this constant image of you giving my baby bump loads and loads of your famous Peanut forehead bumps, followed by a delighted Peanut laugh.

If you were here, we would be showing you all the ultrasound pictures and explaining that you are about to be given the biggest responsibility a little boy can be are about to be a big brother!  You would listen to us earnestly, eyes wide, fully understanding.  You would be up for this task.

If you were here, we would be discussing what books to read to your new sibling.  What to buy for the nursery.  What exciting things were could plan to do together as our new little family, especially during Momma's maternity leave.

If you were still here, I would also be getting ready to plan your 2nd birthday party.

But, you are not here with us, physically.  You are still here, though.  And, I know you're going to be the best Angel Brother ever.  I know you're already helping out with the baby, acting as a special Guardian Angel.  I know you're watching over Momma and Dadda.  And I know you are so excited about this new addition to our family.  An addition we had never planned on, but are now so incredibly thankful to have in our future.

If you were heart might feel complete.

I love and miss you, sweet Peanut.  To the moon and back.
- Momma
