Precious Moments

I am trying to savor every detail about the pregnancy – the feeling of my little boy kicking me, his in utero acrobatics, the increasing swell of my baby bump, the way Nathan looks at my belly in a kind of awe. I love this little miracle of life inside me more than words can describe. It is an amazing feeling to know he is growing and developing more and more each day inside my belly. He makes his presence known often with subtle kicks, rolls, jabs. He gets especially active after I eat, making me imagine him swallowing the amniotic fluid and tasting flavors of my diet and going “mmmmm, good.” :) I love the sound of his heartbeat on doppler – the steady whosh whosh whosh – I could sleep to it as soothing as it is to me. I love to talk to him as if he can hear me. I love my little boy whom I have yet to meet and I’m so proud to be his mom. I will continue to try to savor this process of development as each of us grow in size, strength, and love…
