My dearest son,
This is the first of many letters I will be writing you. I wish that I had started them sooner, perhaps the day you were born, but, as you can probably imagine: Mommy was a tad preoccupied.
Your birth was definitely an event, a story I will preserve for another day, but it was the changing point in my life. I have gone from being just a girl, a woman, a wife; to being so much more. I'm your mommy, and nothing in the world can ever change that.
In the meantime, it's been an adventure in sleepless nights, painful issues of thrush and whatnot, but it's all been worth it! You're healthy and growing, and we can't ask for much more!
