Baby Love

I love to come home at night, brush my teeth, wash my face, and climb in bed to read through blog posts from the day.

I subscribe to 218 blogs. Of those, fewer than 50 post on a daily basis.

Many are on an every-other-day routine. Others still are weekly.

Regardless of frequency of posts, I love to read-up on the lives of my friends...and a few strangers.

This blog has quickly become one of my favorites.

My friend Mike and his wife, Kristin, are two of the greatest youth ministers...really, two of the greatest all-around people. They are also expecting their first child.

Kristin has been writing weekly letters to the baby about what the week has held and--the piece that moves me to tears nearly every time--their eager anticipation to love and care for and play with him or her.

It is so beautiful to read how much Mike and Kristin love and share with one another. And how much they love this growing baby.

This kid is going to be:
1) super beautiful
2) super lucky to have such incredible parents

Have you ever seen the letter I wrote to you when you were a baby? I know exactly where it is if you would like a copy. Might be kinda fun to read.

Can't she have the original one Julie?

Seriously, I'm a little jealous of how much she has documented her love for that baby and how nice it much be to have a husband that is just as excited.
