Dear baby,

Today is the last Saturday of my whole life that I won't know you. From now on, I will be forever learning your personality, needs, wants, dreams. My Saturdays will now be spent taking care of you, taking you to the zoo, going to your ballgames, wondering how you're doing, and waiting on your phone calls.

I can't wait to meet you. It is a bittersweet feeling to bid farewell to my former life. One that consists of Saturdays spent lunching, on sporadic housework, or the occasional shopping spree. They will seem much more important now, not just a lazy filler in between a hectic Friday and spiritual Sunday.

Thank you for the past nine months. You have already taught me more than you'll ever know.

See you on Tuesday.
