And we’re counting down! Here’s why

September 10, 2012

Dear Max

In 12 sleeps you will be three years old and it’s during countdowns like this that I think a lot of moms get sentimental and think back to when there were literal and emotional flutters in our tummies waiting for our precious beings to arrive.

When I was pregnant, I kept a journal, from the day I found out I was pregnant, to when you were a few months old. A lot of it recorded mundane stuff like food cravings and aversions, but the deeper stuff went into how I what I felt, feared and anticipated. For shits and giggles one day, I hope to share it all with you. So you can see how your development, mine as a mom, and to know how much we loved you from the second we knew about you.

Just days before your birth, I journalled about shooting pains, loss of appetite, and my stomach bouncing and flouncing (you used to punch and kick so much so that outsiders could see movement. I wrote about your nursery being ready, and how I couldn’t wait to meet a being who I already knew was a wise old soul.

As we near the 22nd, I’m getting nostalgic and reminiscing, and I know that every jasmine flower and spring smell will always remind me of your birth and such astounding life changes.

Happy almost-birthday dude.

    Happy almost birthday Max! (and mom).
    I have been so busy, that I haven’t looked at your ‘ramblings’ for a while, but I think of you so often. Can you believe that I am now pinning too! My kids are too old for this and I wish I could have done it when they were little, but you can!
    It’s a brilliant pin that I found recently and perfect for a 3 year old! It’s called 20 questions birthday interview album for kids. I’ve pinned it under language activities on my board because it was too good not to pin!

    Many more happy birthdays filled with beautiful memories.
