A letter to Sawyer

Dear Sawyer,

Tomorrow you will become a big brother and will no longer be the baby.  This is an exciting time for our family but I hope you always know how very special you are.  You are my first born -- the one who made me a mommy and you have taught me more than you will ever know over the last 18 months.  And you have brought more joy to my life than I ever thought possible.  I can only imagine how it will be with you and your brother.  My heart may explode!

I know this new role will suit you so well.  You are so loving and kind and Graham is lucky to have you to look up too.  I pray that the two of you will be best friends. I pray that the two of you realize very early on that family is the most important thing in life.  And I pray that you always, always know how very much I love you.  I will always be your biggest fan!

Love,
Mommy
