my growing tummy

It's pretty incredible what your body does during pregnancy.  I had Michael take my photo every couple of weeks so we could keep track of the changes.  It's strange now to look back at the early weeks when I totally thought I was showing and there was really nothing there.  Then as I got bigger, I would pass myself in a window and it would take a second to recognize the person in the reflection as me.  It's such a long time to wait to meet this little person, and I couldn't be happier to have Baby Ethan in my arms.  But I do miss all of those months of having him with me and feeling him move around in there.  The first few days after I gave birth were so surreal.  To actually hold him and see him when only a few short days ago, he was still in my tummy.
