our little one is due a week before halloween. we will have two babies to dress up now. i'm already wondering what they will be. wouldn't it be beautiful to dress them alike?
i can't wait to spend the summer in sundresses with my husband's hand on my stomach, whispering the dreams we have for him - or her, wondering, just like with gus, who they will become. whose eyes will they have? will they get my freckles or his curly hair? will they get his personality or my shyness? will they like the way i read to them, just like gus does? or will they want to be sung to instead?
we have been preparing our garden for ripe vegetables and fruit, centered around some of my very favorite cravings like cucumbers and fresh juicy tomatoes and watermelon so red you'd imagine them to share a bloodline with ruby's.
there is so much joy already and there is so much more joy to come. this time is precious. this life is precious. and this baby.
oh, this baby is precious.
keep growing, our little love. keep breathing inside me until i can breathe you out.
