It was around this time last year that we found out that we had a new addition to our family. What a joyous time it was, and how my love has increased for you since that day! That has been the theme of this pregnancy: joy. It was with joy that we learned more about the development of a human being. I am forever in awe of how we are created! It was with joy that I saw you bear any seeming hardship of the pregnancy, as if there were no hardship at all. Every morning, seeing you greet the day with joy as you exclaimed. “I love being pregnant!” It was with pure joy, tears streaming down our faces as we learned that our child was a boy, his heart beating as strong as ever.
Now, as Peter is three months old, it is with joy that we experience every new discovery and every new milestone with our son. I look on his face, with one of those irresistible smiles and I see you, I grow deeper in love with you. The world cannot fathom how incredible it is to bring life into the world, to create. Nothing compares to this amazing and humbling experience. I am thankful that I share this with you!
I love you.
