Another Small Thing for You to Know:
You are going to have many trying times throughout your life, and we want you to remember to be strong both physically and mentally.
Your dad and I want you to be able to handle anything that comes your way, to not crack under pressure, and to always stand for what you believe in. Even if what you believe in isn’t what we believe in, that’s important to remember.
There are going to be times when you want to give up, when you want to hide out and wait for the storm to pass. Instead, we want you to face it head on, be strong like we are going to raise you to be, and never back down.
You’ve got this kid, you are going to be one tough cookie!!
A PostScript for you on Week 12:
Sometimes I feel my heart swells beyond its means, and that I simply cannot handle all the love I have. You, my little peanut (or should I say plum, because right now that’s how big you are), have opened up a whole new world of love deeper than your father and I had felt before, and you should never forget how happy you make us. Here’s the first photo your mom will embarrassingly post of you, prepare for many more.
