"Look Emma, that lady has a baby in her belly!"
Over the past couple days I have heard 3 different Moms point this out to their little ones. It makes me smile. It might be one of my favorite things about being pregnant: the way little girls and boys look over with a shy but wonderous smile, trying to understand that there is actually a little being in there. I can relate! It's hard for me to comprehend it, even when this little guy seems to be grabbing onto my rib cage or thumping a foot against my right side.
Ultrasounds are ultra surreal. Really, there's a little person in there who will one day open a new pack of post it notes or wait in line at the DMV? The complexities, no, the ellaborate layers and miniscule details of life, utterly baffle me. It truly is a miracle.
