Letters to Tuck // Vol. 12

Hi Tuck,

A couple updates for you!  
Your nursery is (for the most part) ready!!  We just need you. 
Your dad’s been practicing on your fur sis Lola.  
We can’t wait for you to join our famalamb!! 

This morning I asked your dad what three characteristics he hopes you possess… his answer:  patience, a sense of humor, and a positive attitude.

Some of my favorite things about your dad for certain.  I have a feeling he will be passing them down to you!

You are literally hours?  days?  away from meeting us.  We already feel so blessed to be your parents.  It’s surreal that we’ll get to kiss your lips and snuggle you so soon.

I love you so much.

PS:  After the babe arrives you’ll be hearing from some of my favorite mommas.  I know you’ll love them and their guest posts (:  Thank you for all of your love, support, encouragement, laughs these past months.  I love this community and feel grateful to connect with so many amazing women every day whether it’s here, somewhere else in cyberspace or in person.  so much love.

    You are literally the cutest mom-to-be. Beyond that, though I do not know you personally, from your sincere, thoughtful words, I have no doubt that you will love Tuck in a way that all should from their parents. Good luck in your last few days before you finally meet your little man!

    I am so excited! I know both of you will pass down so many beautiful things to your baby boy that will make him an amazing man. Couldn't be happier for a couple other than you & your JB! I love you mama 🙂

    Ha, I was just researching the ergo carriers, but I don't have a dog to practice on! Hope you get to rest as much as possible while you wait for baby x

    Dear Sarah, I have been reading you for quite a long while but never really dared to comment. I can relate to lots of your writing (we love to travel, I have been an expat for 12 years now, we're newly married living in Europe, I am half-swiss and lived in Switzerland for 5 years). I have to confess at first I thought this was unreal, your life seemed way too perfect, I thought it must be photoshopped or edited out (I don't mean that in a nasty way). But I kept on reading, your positive and loving attitude shining through all of your posts. By doing so I have been getting to know the "real" you (behind the glossy perfect pics).
    I wish you and your family all the best. I hope you will continue to be blessed with love, joy, and happiness. I send you a big hug, and a big thanks for being here, a shiny star and an inspiration. (Some of your posts even got me through bad days).
    And it is so exciting that baby Tuck is almost here (or is he here already?). We are also really hoping for a baby this year (but dealing with silly fertility struggles and treatment) while staying positive and finding hope and joy in the little things.
    Best wishes to you, now and always.

    I am getting so excited for you! I fell in love hard the moment I met my son. Its a phenomenon that God allows for a reason;)
    You are going to be an incredible mother!
    Praying for a smooth delivery!

    Blessing to you! So exciting. I love that you asked your husband what characteristics he hopes for his little boy. I'm going to ask my husband the same thing about our little girl.

    Congrats and well wishes sent your way.

    First, love that you asked your husband what characteristics he hopes the baby possesses. And his response – so perfect.

    Second, the family photo with the pup is so adorable.

    Congrats and best of luck as you count down the days (hours?) to the next chapter!

    I saw on Twitter this morning that you are in early labour and just had to pop over to wish you the very best of luck! I can see from the comments that there are a lot of us eager to finally clap our eyes on Baby Tuck!

    Love and best wishes to you all, all the way from the UK xxx

    I've come back to this post a few times. It makes me so happy. I want to jump up and down and say, he's here, he's here!

    Please tell me you've put these all in a book somewhere for Tuck when he grows up. They're too cute.
