Dear Baby..Wednesday Words

I have decided to link up the first time to Wednesday Words a linky which is run by Emma of Crazy with Twins.

This is poem of sorts written to the baby residing in my belly.

Dear Baby

You have been part of me for 20 weeks
It sounds like such a short time
But we have grown attached shall we say?
I think about you most of the time and
I already don’t know what I would do without you
It hasn’t been easy
We have already had more tough times
Than is fair

You are worth every minute
I just can’t believe we are only halfway
Through this long journey
Your sister can’t wait to meet you and
I think you are going to be the best of friends

Every day your little kicks get stronger
As I feel you getting to know what your body can do
I can’t wait to see your face
To hold your hand
To stroke your soft skin

For now I wait patiently ..or not
To see who you are
Whose lips have you got
Are you just like me or do you follow your daddy?
Will you be quiet and calm or loud and funny?
Whoever you are and whatever
You may be
Know that you already you are loved
More than you will ever really know

Dear Izzy

Dear Izzy,

On Sunday you will be 1.. 365 days old. Wowzer. You are such a big girl. I wrote this poem just for you and one day we will read it together:

This time last year

This time last year
I hadn’t met you
Hadn’t squeezed your chubby legs
Or smoothed your soft skin
I hadn’t felt your fingers curl around mine
Or heard you say mama
For the very first time
This time last year
You were still in my belly
Kicking and punching
When I relaxed to watch telly
You were almost ready
But just not quite
Waiting for when you felt the time
Was right
Its been a wonderful year
Tiring sure
But amazing and happy
The best one so far
Each day you discover something
Totally new
And I in turn discover
