Future Child

This is a post I’ve been waiting a long time to write.  Gwendolyn and I are going to be parents!  It’s still such a strange thought, even after thinking about it for 5 months.  I know anyone reading this will have already known about the little guy, so I figured this post should be written to our future child to read in the future.  A digital time capsule, if you will.

Dear Future Alexis or Gabriel,

Well at the time of this writing those are our chosen names.  I hope you like it, your name that is.  You have no idea how hard it is to come up with a name.  Anyways your mom and I would just like you to know how much we already love you.  We can’t wait to hold you in our arms.  Actually next week will be the first time we get to see your precious face, as we are getting our first ultrasound.  We can’t wait for that appointment.

Right now we are just preparing for your arrival.  Today we actually hope to pick up your baby furniture.  ‘Uncle’ Cory and ‘Aunt’ Annie are going to help us pick it up.  We have a while to go on decorating though.  You are not due until Jan 16th.  Which is 7 days after my birthday!  I know for sure your mother would love for you to come early, maybe we could share a birthday!

I hope you are enjoying your life so far.  I hope we are giving you everything that you want.  Please be kind though, as money does not grow on trees.  I know you will probably already be spoiled though (probably from your grandparents), and I hope you appreciate it!

p.s. I know I’ve probably told you this a 100 times already; Don’t go so fast on the hover board, and don’t sit so close to the holographic TV!
