Happy Birthday and Pregnancy Glow





from in my belly you grew
cells divided and you burrowed your way
oh, the things that burrow
yet you had no form
you were once too small in me
blastocist of cells
primitive streak
again,
this all is repeat
and somehow
 new life does form
in it's own time
and only by Gods willing hand
you'll come to live
and breathe
outside of me. . .

Tonight I say Happy Birthday to Our little Ainsley who turned three
and wait as this new baby forms in me. . .

Congratulations! My daughter is carrying her second and her first (a boy) is 18 months old now. We find out this week if she's having an Abby or a Tommy!
Such a wonderful way of telling folks and at the same time paying tribute to your daughter.
