Baby Love Letters

Baby Love LettersAs you Mama’s know, your life changes the moment you hear the first heartbeat of the little baby you are baking. Nine months later, your heart just bursts with over bounding joy that cannot be measured. With that love came fear for me.

My biggest fear has always been leaving this earth and my babies not knowing the amount of love and admiration I have for each of them individually. From day one on, I have sporadically written Mommy “love” notes to each one of my kids. Most of their baby book is full of random entries from me, dated and signed, for memories in the future that I may or may not be able to recollect. Tonight was just one instance where I stopped what I was doing and wrote a little note to my baby girl.

Baby Love Letters 2As Easter weekend comes to a close, it is an amazing reminder of 2 years ago and the gift that we were blessed with. It was two years ago we learned we were expecting another baby and, although I tried to hold back, fear filled my heart. My #2 was just 5 months old and the idea of three boys scared the pieces out of me. The truth is, God knew what he was doing and challenged me in my journey through motherhood.

Nevertheless, I want each of my littles to know that daily or at random times I am ALWAYS thinking of them. As the days go by and life gets crazy, my entries into their record of life will one day be all that is left of me to them. I look back at each baby book and it is very nostalgic. It brings me back to that moment and the reassuring love I have for them.

How do you keep memories alive for your babies?

As always… xoxo,

The Naturalist Mama

    I actually have a journal that I have been keeping, since I found out I was pregnant. Cannot wait for my baby boy to read it, when he is older.

      I have those too!

  2. This is the cutest idea! Thank you for sharing it. And, I love your blog 🙂

    1. Thank you so much! And thank you for visiting 🙂

  3. I have a journal that I’ve been keeping for my daughter. She is now 25 y/o so I haven’t kept up with it still. I think I may have stopped around age 13 when she was being a cranky teen.

    I will let her see it, one at a time, when she has a baby. It will be more fun then, I think, than before motherhood.

  4. What a very great idea! I have also been worried about what would happen if I were to leave my babies behind on this earth before they were old enough to remember me. I have a baby book for each of them and I think I will start writing little love notes in each one.

  5. I kept a pregnancy journal and a baby book that went through his 3rd year. Mine look the exact same as yours with every spare inch of page and both covers covered in little anecdotes and memories. Now, I keep a leather bound journal that I lovingly title “Sh*t My Kids Say” where I write down all the hilarious stuff that comes out of their little mouths. #ibabloggers

  7. I have kept a journal of my life for years and I can promise you that one day your kids will look back and love you for it. It is a great gift that you are giving them.
