some things just never change. i just found this letter:
We thought at first a girl, then a boy. Your mom said today you're definitely a girl, well I still bet at boy. I've got to tell you your mother is correct 90% of the time.
You seem calmer than the previous happenings- confident almost. Its hard to believe you are our last. So much happiness in such a short time.
We want everything to be perfect for you- with what and who you have to face you may need some help. We will not treat you as the baby of the family- you should be the best. We've already made all the mistakes with Erin and Tim. just ask them!
You won't believe your mother. How in the hell she puts up with my schedule and bad temper plus runs the house and keeps you kids in line. You have a good example of love in her.
I'm so nervous, hiding my excitement I think. I drove Erin and Tim buggy today with my nervous energy. Your mother wasn't fooled. I can't tell you how much your mother means to me, you will just not believe the love and admiration I have for her.
You are very close tonight- too bad there is no stork. I will see and hold you in the morning. Sleep tight- I can't wait to hear your first cry.
