Dear Camille…

Rutter Pregnancy Announcement

Dear Camille,

You’re almost here! We cannot wait to hold you in our arms and kiss your little face. WE ARE READY! The doctor says you look great and you look very healthy (must be the products your mama is taking). We know how much you love Spark and Rehydrate because you move around EVERY TIME she drinks them.

I have great news for you… as long as everything goes well during labor, the doctor is letting me deliver you! So since my hands will be preoccupied, our friend at Big Leaps Photography will be taking pictures of your entrance into the world. Just so you know, we are going to be taking A TON of pictures of you. I bought a tripod with a bluetooth remote control so we can take pictures together! Your mom says I’m going to be the “Papa”razzi and she’s going to be the “Mama”razzi. There’s no denying it… I’m going to have to clear my phone photos to free up space on a daily basis.

Your mom was telling me that the church bulletin is promoting a father-daughter event coming up in the next couple weeks at church, but you’re probably going to be too little to go. I haven’t looked at it myself, but before we go to any other church events I will have to do my due diligence on exactly what we are attending.

Let me tell you what happened with the last two times we attended a church social event: The first event your mom had us attend at church was a “spaghetti dinner.” When we walked into the room we noticed that we were the only ones there that didn’t have gray hair. Then I looked at the bulletin laying on the table as we entered and noticed it read “Senior Spirits Spaghetti Dinner.” We stayed anyway because your mom loves spaghetti. The second time your mom had us attend an event it was a crawfish boil that read “BBQ Tailgate Party.” Somehow in your mom’s mind that transferred to “Football Jersey Party.” Needless to say, we showed up wearing our New Orleans Saints jerseys while everyone else was in regular clothes. So now your daddy is an independent review panel for all church social events we plan on attending. 😉 Your first church social event will be your baptism! That’s a very special event and we can’t wait to teach you all about it!

Just so you know, we have ended “Preparation Mode” and have gone into “Wait Mode.” We have setup all of your belongings including your bed, your car seat, and your stroller…. that stroller is amazing and I’ve already taken it for a few spins around the house. Your mom has too, but ran into the wall 5 feet after she started pushing it. So now she’s going through stroller driving classes before you ride in it and I’m installing rubber bumpers on all sides.

Oh, and we have more BIG NEWS! Thanks to Water Cooler Catechism and Archangel Radio, your mom and I were blessed to share half of our story on how we came back to the Church this week! The second half will be aired next week! I’m going to write to you more about that very soon!

Well, I’m going to help your mom bounce up and down on the yoga ball tonight so that we can hopefully see you sooner than later. We’ll see if it works! Love you my sweet little girl!


P.S. Hurry up and get here. 🙂
