I am now in the second trimester of my pregnancy and recently began to feel my baby move around. I also had the opportunity to see him in 3D/4D which was amazing! I feel a stronger connection each day. When I saw the Huggies "Letters to Baby" campaign, it was perfect timing because it gave me a creative outlet to share my love for my baby. In today's post, I'll tell you more about the Huggies "Letters to Baby" campaign and will give you ideas of places to store your letter, including a time capsule and/or email account for your child when they are older.
This is the Huggies "Letters to Baby" video that brought tears to my eyes and made me realize how wonderful it is to take this special time to write a letter to my baby while I am pregnant.
My Letter to Baby
In my personal letter, I shared the details of our connection and how I have cherished his every accomplishment since I knew of his existence. This includes reading about his weekly developmental milestones during my pregnancy and celebrating his accomplishments such as the little kicks that I feel or seeing him suck his thumb on ultrasound. (Yes, practicing sucking is an important skill in the womb in preparation for eating after birth!) I shared how I daydream about what he'll be like as he grows and that I hope that he finds ways to contribute to the world around him so that he feels the joy from the value that he adds to the world around him. I also let him know that no one will ever love him like his mom! We have a special and unconditional bond.Sharing the Letter
In addition to writing my own letter, I also asked family members to write letters so that I could add them to a time capsule. In the time capsule, I included a lot of information about the year 2016. I included a list with the prices of many everyday items, a book of USPS Forever Stamps with the price of postage written on the back, and popular music. I also added trendy items such as Star Wars Legos and more. It was easy to use my creativity to fill the time capsule and I think that he will love everything. The letters from our family members will be the most meaningful part!
Here is a photo of the time capsule. I made a small donation in exchange for the silver packaging pouches at a local food storage facility and had them seal them for me. I created one to give him at age 10 and another for when he turns 21 years old.
In addition, I created an email account for my baby and will give him the password once he grows up. I scanned and sent each letter to his email account. I also took photos and made videos that I emailed to his account. I plan to continue emailing him throughout his childhood and sharing the password once he moves away for college.
