The night before...

Dear Elliot,
As I was blow drying my hair a few minutes ago, getting ready for bed, it dawned on me. The next time I take a shower, the next time I dry my hair, you'll be here. How do you even wrap your head around something like that?

In approximately nine hours, we'll be headed to the hospital. I have a feeling these are going to be the longest nine hours of my entire life.

It all just feels so surreal, knowing my life is about to be transformed in such a profound way. Just like everything changed after Stevie was born--essentially dividing my life into 'before Stevie' and 'after Stevie'--everything is about to change again. I have nine hours left 'before Elliot.' I can't wait to finally be at the 'after Elliot' point.

I love you beyond words and am so incredibly excited to finally meet you face-to-face and look into your eyes.

See you tomorrow!

Love,
Mom

I usually just stalk your blog, but I just wanted to say how truly excited I am for you and good luck tomorrow. I just found out Monday that we are expecting our rainbow baby in November and there is such a feeling of happiness finally back in my home. I am sooo happy for you and can't wait to see the pictures of lovely Elliot and reading all about him. You and your family are very much loved. :D

I realized half an hour ago that today is THE DAY for you and Elliot and I got so excited I actually started feeling a little dizzy! Haha I am so so so excited for you to see that adorable little boy tomorrow morning, rest assured I will not be able to think about ANYTHING else. Sending you and Andy and Elliot SO much love and good vibes! I hope the delivery goes quickly and easily and you get to have Elliot in your arms as soon as possible (he's certainly made you wait long enough, the little stinker!). I cannot think of anyone who deserves this happiness as much as you guys do. <3 <3 <3
