"Hey Baby, I love you!!!!"
I'm all teary right now. I just had a memory, and must share it. When my baby was still in my belly, I used to talk to him all the time. I would get rub my belly and talk to him, and my baby would kick me back as if to say, I hear you Mama. I would get a big kicking response out of him everytime I would say in a sweet voice "Heyyy babyyyyy I love you!!! It was the sweetest thing. Well after my baby was born, and in the NICU, I would say it to him again. He reccognized my voice and would kick and try to open his eyes to look at me. The doctors thought he had brain damage, but I knew he was fine. (It was kidney failure that caused his death.) He knew I was there at his bedside the whole time. I talked to him until the moment he passed away in my arms. I never before knew how special it is to talk to babies even before they are born. I will continue to tell him those special words because I know he is still listening to me.
