How did this happen?!? A year ago tonight I was preparing to go in the next evening to be induced. My parents arrived and saw me for the first time big and pregnant. Ok, not for the first time big, but definitely for the first time pregnant.
And I had mixed feelings on whether or not I was ready to let him out. I loved being pregnant and knew I was going to miss having a baby inside me. I still miss having an excuse to rub my belly and be proud of its size.
I'm working on a birthday letter for Kiel, but it may be a few more days until I finish it.
Until then I'm going to continue to ponder his belly button and the amazement it still gives me that for 41 weeks it connected him to me and gave him life.
Happy Birthday Baby Boy!
