I want to remember...
:: my hand resting on the swell of my tummy without thought, part of me always aware
:: how my husband's excitement fills every corner of our life
:: his tenderness with me and how very anchored in our marriage I feel, so strongly a couple as we stand on the cusp of becoming three
:: that life seems the same, is the same, but the world feels different
:: wondering how I never noticed before the huge responsibility of naming
:: how the aches and twinges are suddenly signs of a miracle
:: waiting impatiently for those first flutterings, the quickening
