My Dearest Zoey,
I felt you kick. I felt your movements for the first time and I have no words for how amazing it felt. I hear from parents all the time that there is no way you can be prepared for how much you can be prepared for the love you will feel for your child at birth. I believe that, but I am still taken a back by how much I love you now. Feeling you kick was the best moment of my life. Papa was there and he felt it too, and I could tell that he was as impacted as I was. Feeling you move inside Megan’s belly was like everything in that moment was right and good and perfect. Our love, Your Papa's, Mama Megan's, and mine created you. You are safe and healthy. My life is perfect.
You moved. Your little foot reached out and touched my hand, and in that moment all of this made sense. I love you my daughter. My little Zoey.
