Your mommy and I met on a Christian dating website. She was the only woman I met from that site, and I was the only man she met.
We met face to face one Sunday after church.
And we’ve been together ever since.
We lived nearly two hours apart, but we saw each other every weekend after that Sunday or we saw each other during the week. Not a weekend went by that we didn’t see each other, and that went on through the weekend we got married.
And since we got married two and a half years ago, we’ve never been apart for one night. We do nearly everything together, because we’d rather be together than spend an extra moment away from each other.
That changes tomorrow.
Tomorrow, Mommy will fly to you, to spend more time with you. She’ll sleep in the same room with you, and take care of you for the rest of the week.
I’ll miss your mommy terribly, just like I miss you. Two ladies have captured my heart, and they will be together tomorrow night.
I just sit and stare and watch you sleep.
Dreaming of eating again.
I think, “This little baby will be mine. My daughter. I’ll take you home, and you’ll be ours forever.” I still have difficulty imagining it . . . I’ve been so many years without a child, or even the possibility on the horizon, and now, here you are, right here with me.
Our visit ends tomorrow. We got in last night – we fed you and we (mommy) changed your diaper, and when we went out to dinner, I just watched you sleep next to us. Then later, we (mommy) gave you a bath and got you ready for bed.
We spent all day today feeding you and burping you, because you eat all day, and (mommy) changing your diapers. We walked you around the yard, and we mostly just sat and looked at you. We look at you while you eat, and while you just do nothing.
We watch you sleep, because you’re adorable.
Hopefully, when we come back on our next trip, we’ll be taking you home.
We miss you so much, that we’re going to visit you, today. We plan to be there for a few days.
We went shopping and bought you new clothes because you’re growing so fast!
Mommy’s friends gave her a baby shower, and diapers. Lots of diapers. Evidently, you use a lot of diapers? That’s what we’ve been told. I don’t know, so I’ll have to believe them until I can learn for myself. We packed up the diapers that fit you now, and your clothes, and I’ll bring them to you, later today.

We bought you new sleepers and pretty dresses. We bought larger clothes for later, and we bought a pretty dress for Easter. We were praying and hoping that we’d have you with us for Easter, but Easter is a little more than two weeks away, and it looks like we won’t be together then.
But we’ll be together today.
We moved into the new house.
Right now, you have your own shelf in the kitchen . . .
. . . we’re still setting up your room. But we’re going to take a little break to visit you for a few days.
