Notes to My Unborn Son

unborn_summary


Introduction

My child arrived just the other day… and now five years have come and gone. All of the things we have done have happened in what seems like a few moments of time. You have been everything I have hoped you would be to me and our family, plus a whole lot more.


With your 5th birthday now in the rears, I thought it would be a good idea for me to go back to the beginning. I want to share with you the things I wrote to you before you were born.  Jett, I also wanted to take a moment to thank you for being my son. I am proud to be your dad.

The Notes

Before Jett was born, I started writing notes to him. The following figures contain the short notes I wrote to him before he was born on 9/1/11.

Figure 1 shows the dates each message was written, starting on 6/1/11, or three months before he was born. The notes were sent to his Gmail account that I created in anticipation of his arrival. I even created a Twitter account for him 44 days before he was born! This conclusively validates the true nature of my dorkiness.
