Dear Sesame Seed,
It has been way too long since I have written you a letter. Don't worry though, I have been talking to you, singing to you, dancing with you at every moment. So much has happened, we have been quite busy. To begin with, we have started announcing your presence to the whole world - I mean everyone I lay eyes on has to know how excited I am about you. It might be partially due to how tiny I am, so they wouldn't know if I didn't announce it. But mostly, it's because your Daddy and I are just exploding with excitement about your presence in our lives.
Sesame Seed, there is other exciting news. We have found the house that will be your first home. We hope you are as happy with it as we are. Though the house itself is sweet, we are even more pleased with the location. We will be living in close proximity to both sets of your grandparents, close to almost all of your cousins, aunts and uncles, and close to lots of our friends. As we talk about values we want to share with you, it is clear that a connection to family is so important to us. We want you to know your grandparents, they are all such wonderful people who you can learn a lot from. We want you to feel the support of your aunts and uncles, they have been our greatest supports in our lives and we want you to be able to feel their embrace as well. And, most of all, we want you to have the gift of friendship your cousins can offer you. We hope this home can be the start of creating all these connections for you.
I already love you, little one,
