A letter to my impatient son

Dear Elliot,
This morning, I laid in bed and watched my belly move. This is something that I enjoy every day. Lately, I've treasured these little moments with you even more, because I'm not sure how much longer this pregnancy will last. The doctors say that you will be coming soon- maybe even in a couple of weeks.
Feeling you move so much lately gives me hope. Maybe the doctors are wrong, and you've decided to stay put for longer? I sure hope so. Don't get me wrong- I can't wait to meet you, but it's not time yet. Things would be easier for you if you waited a little longer before making your grand entrance into this world.
Life is short, my son, so enjoy that warm, weightless world that you call home for a little longer, okay? I'll even make you a deal: if you stay in there until Thanksgiving, I'll be sure to eat extra turkey and mashed potatoes just for you.
