Dear baby Ian,
You are now almost 3 and not a “real” baby anymore but a part of me will always see you as such.
Today I want to tell you the story of the day we found out you were going to be born.
I went to work as usual that day, sat down at my desk and turned on my computer…I then promptly ran into the bathroom and got very sick.
ODD! BUT,,,somehow I just KNEW…I left work early that day to work from home but I couldn’t REALLY work so I took the afternoon off…BUT not until I took 4 pregnancy tests. And yep,,,I was right! YOU were going to be born!!!
I wanted to surprise Daddy BUT I had to tell someone and that someone was mama’s friend Jodi from work. You see Jodi knew I was sick at work and that I suspected you might be coming along so I HAD to tell her and let her know to expect you.
As soon as I told Miss Jodi I stopped working and went to the mall. Daddy had been wanting a new Laron Landry jersey. You KNOW how crazy Daddy is about the Redskins!!! I decided to buy him that jersey, and you a little Redskins onsie. I wanted a jersey for you too but it turns out they don’t make them for little tiny babies. A jersey for you would have to wait until you were a little older. (You got one too eventually, don’t worry…actually you are on jersey #2…you grew out of your first Cooley one).
I wrapped your little onsie in Daddy’s new jersey and took it with me to his work about the time Daddy would be leaving. I was outside next to Daddy’s car when he came out of his building. Daddy was happy to see me and VERY confused. You see he didn’t know why I was sitting there. He soon found out though.
He opened his jersey and was SOOOOO excited BUT even MORE excited when your little onsie fell out of his and he realized he was going to get to meet YOU!!!!
Daddy’s face was PRICELESS and Mommy & Daddy were SO happy that day!!!!
You see sweet boy, we were SOOO excited we were going to get to be your Mama & Daddy!!!
