Letter to my baby girl

Dear Emersyn,

I know we weren't going to "decide" on your name officially until you were born, but I'm pretty darn confident this is the name we're going with- still unsure about the middle name. My top name had been Clara and the other day I found myself thinking that you don't feel like a Clara, you feel like an Emersyn, and that was my moment to realize that's your name. Sorry for the confusion, little one, but honestly, settling on a name and then choosing a different one is just one moment of many that mom and dad will think we've got a plan, and then we'll need to adjust to suit you.

These days it seems I'm doing a lot of adjusting. As you grow, various positions are comfortable and then uncomfortable. I can only imagine what it will be like when you're even bigger and there are less and less positions to try. It's totally worth it to know you're growing big and strong in there. I still love feeling you kick and roll, as does your Daddy. He has taken to kissing my belly every night before we go to bed to tell you he loves you. I think you have him wrapped around your finger already.

We are so excited to meet you in just a few months, but we're also a little scared. We've never done this before, so take it easy on us, ok? We love you.



  1. LOVE your name choice! :) Of course, I might be a little biased, but it really is a beautiful name! Don't be scared- I can tell that you are going to be a great Momma and I can promise you that you will love every minute of it!

  2. Love that name! Love it! In fact after Saylor if we had another girl we were going to name her Emerson. I love the letters you write to her... so sweet!

  3. these letters are so sweet. Love the new name!
