Bump to Baby: Dear Emma

I honestly never expected that we would get to meet you. I found out I was pregnant and I thought I would lose you to, but you are a little a miracle and a fighter and we can't wait to meet you. I can't wait to see who you become and get to know the beautiful soul you have.

I hope you are kind. There are some many reasons in this word to be rough and tough, but I hope you treat everyone with kindness. Everyone had a story and no matter how anyone else treats you, be kind and show them what kindness looks like.

I hope you dare to be different. It's hard to be different in this world and often times it's easier to just blend in. Always know that you are unique and that's beautiful. It's doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. You should always be yourself no matter what and know that that makes you beautiful. Be strong in who you are and be sure of your own beauty.

I hope you learn how to fall. There are so many things in this life that are going to knock you down. Life can be ugly and tough. And you are going fall down a lot. But it's important to get back up. Never be afraid to ask for help and it's not a sign of weakness to show that sometimes you just need a little extra help.

I hope you always keep dreaming. Dreams are so important. You might not always get to accomplish everything you dream but that doesn't mean you can't dream and aim for it. There are so many cool things to see and do in this world and pushing yourself will only make you stronger and bring you closer to accomplishing those dreams. Dream big and never think that you can't do something. You might have to work really hard but you should still try. Always try.

I hope you laugh often and learn to laugh at yourself. It's important to learn that you aren't perfect. You are going to make mistake and sometimes all you can do is laugh at yourself. Don't carry the weight of the world on your shoulders. Don't take yourself too seriously. Life is short enough and you should learn how to have fun and enjoy the time you have.

I hope you learn patience. This one is hard. It's something that I still struggle with on a daily basis but it's important. It's important to learn to be patient with others but also yourself.

Life is hard, kid. I wish it wasn't. I wish I could tell you that things were always going to be easy but it's not. You are going to struggle in life. You are going to fall down a lot. You are going to cry and hide under your covers. But know that you are beautiful and you are loved. You are safe and you enough. And just know that standing out is hard and sometimes it's easier to blend in but always just be yourself. Be sure of who you are and know that you are so loved by your dad, siblings and myself. We always have your back no matter what.

We haven't even met you yet but we already love you so much.

Love, Mama
