32 weeks

April 9, 2009

This morning, I saw a man waiting at a bus stop with his little boy. The man had such a hopeful, excited look on his face, and he was holding his little boy’s hand so tight. The little boy was beaming at his dad. I had a feeling that they don’t normally ride the bus – that this was going to be an adventure for the little boy – and something about that scene just brought me to the verge of tears.

I can’t wait to have adventures with my little girl.


Today we have our 32 week ultrasound, and I am SO excited to see Biskit’s little face again! She is sheer magic to me.


Even though I am barely getting any sleep these days, I cannot help but stay awake when my little daughter begins her nightly dance. I put my hands on my tum, and feel her legs, knees, arms slide around under my skin – just the two of us cuddled in the dark – her dancing, stretching, doing the moonwalk – me marveling at the miracle that Matt and I have created. Those are moments of sheer, absolute joy for me — the closest thing to heaven on earth that exists. My sweetest, precious, most loved baby — you are already the apple of my eye. I love you so much.

    The related posts are REALLY strange:
    * “The Wanderer”
    * I have decided not to close this blog down afterall.
    * Pamela Anderson Looks 20 Again
    * Jacko’s Bad Day In Court

    The second and last one are about pedophiles.

    O, the world into which she is being brought.

    And when you hold them for the first time you would think you couldn’t love them more, but you do.

    Matt: Those links are frightening. Really.

    MK: Thank you! You know just what to say to a pregnant lady to make her feel good. 😀

    MKD: Oh man. I’m sure. I can’t wait.
