To my First Born

“I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, as long as I’m living my baby you’ll be.” (Robert Munsch)

Dear Grayson:

In no time we will be greeted by your baby sister. You have been extra cuddly these last few weeks and maybe you sense the change about to happen. I am writing this to let you know that you will always be my baby. Since the moment I saw those two pink lines we have been bonded together.

You have grown so much in the past (almost) two years. You have turned out to be an amazing boy, more than I could have ever imagined. And as I sit here and hold you close, I will squeeze you just a little bit tighter and try to mentally capture this moment forever.

I want you to know that I will love you forever and always. This will never change buddy. You are going to be an amazing big brother and I can’t wait for you to love and teach baby sister everything.

I may have to share my attention at times, but know I will always be here for you. I promise to continue giving you cuddles and reminding you how much I love you.

You were the first one to make me a momma and I will never forget that. You taught me so much and you were the one that was there through all my trial and errors at the new mom gig. You’ve given me the confidence I need to be a momma.

I love you to the moon and back bubbas! Thanks for showing me the way.

Love always,



  1. I LOVE THIS!! I just had my second and I was so worried about how my first would take it. Would she still feel special? Fast forward and we have a obsessed big sister lol. Congratulations on your new little one on the way.


  2. This is beautiful! I actually recently wrote a new post about my anxiety when I learned I was pregnant with my second child, for so many reasons. But honestly, I felt so guilty towards my firstborn and how he’d have to share me because I was so totally in love with him and our life just the three of us at that time. Of course, as soon as I met my daughter my heart expanded and she fit right into our little family and that mom guilt went away, but I do wish I’d written a letter like this to him!
