I bought this print after seeing it hanging in the pumping room at the hospital. I loved it instantly because it captures totally the way I feel about having a baby. I love the way the women are gazing at this child who is radiating light. That's how babies seem to me...full of light and wonder.
Anyway, I have not been a very good blogger lately and I think mostly the reason is that as I near my due date, I find myself feeling a little more introverted and introspective than usual. I feel more quiet and reserved, more purposeful, more... mindful of the event that is going to take place in my body and in our lives.
But what I want to say is that I really appreciate everyone who has given me advice, or been excited with us, or worried with us, or listened to me talk incessantly about my pregnancy. Sorry if I've been annoying. It's nice to have friends and family who care though, and I appreciate you all. Thank you for the lovely shower. I felt so supported and loved! I've had so much fun washing and putting away tiny baby things. And thank you for all the photographer advice. It really makes me love blogging that we can share stuff like that with each other.
So nothing too exciting is happening by way of baby news. I can feel my body doing all those things it is supposed to in order to prepare for birth. Feeling a little more uncomfortable and tired and sore. I'll make sure and post if there is any big news (like a baby). But in the mean time, forgive me if I am an inconsiderate or distant friend for the next few weeks. I'm just feathering my little nest and trying to savor this time I have left with just me and my baby, before I have to share her.
But really-- I kind of can't wait for that either!
