Mother’s Day is all about celebrating the bond between mother and child, showing appreciation for everything our mothers do for us and spreading joy and love. To mark Mother’s Day this year we asked the families cast in our upcoming baby themed shoot to write love letters to their children. Read on as Teresa shares a love letter to her son Mateo and expectant mother Sophie writes to her unborn baby in anticipation of its arrival.
There are no words to express how much I love you, your existence makes me feel happy, I can even adore your tantrums in a way! You are so crazy sometimes, laughing about everything. When you were born the doctor said you were the most serious baby she had ever seen, but then something changed in you. I guess the amount of love around you affected you because since you were 3 months old you have this smile that appears when someone is laughing. You suddenly start to laugh without understanding the reason and I am sure that this is because you can feel the people around you; you are so special, and you make us feel blessed to be your parents. I’m afraid for you to grow up because you are so adorable and you love my kisses! I cannot imagine you as a teenager ashamed of mamas kisses or as a guy that is keeping secrets from me...I know that time flies, and because of this I’m kissing you all the time and I want to enjoy my baby forever.
We are still one at this moment. You are safe tucked inside me, swimming around in a universe that has my heartbeat as an endless playlist. I hope you are happy there and it’s cosy and warm. I don’t need to share you with the outside world yet. I will miss our time together, but I can’t wait to meet you in my arms. To see your face, hear your cry and smell your perfect baby body. My greatest achievement is to give life and love to you. I can’t wait to see you evolve into the person that you are and get to know you every day a little better. Taking us on an adventure we have started together, your daddy, your big brother and me. I promise to love you endlessly and have faith in your own path. You will be my teacher in lots of lessons in this life, as is your brother. We can’t wait to meet you, I’m sure you will love your father so much. He is the best. Your big brother will show you the world. And I, I hope I can be the mother you need. I hope I can be there when you need me and to give you space to grow, all in the name of love. I love you baby, I can’t wait to meet you.
