connecting

I don't know how well he understands, but Daniel likes to lift up my shirt and put his hand on my belly and say, "Baby ... hi!" I've placed his hands there when I can feel the baby kicking, but I'm not sure if he felt anything or knew what he was feeling. Maybe more than we give him credit for? Anyway, I took this picture today by holding the camera out by my side while sitting on a chair, my far leg tucked under me, and shooting blind. It's totally blurry, and that's probably the only reason I'm posting it here; I'm typically not one for displaying the big, bare belly shots!

OH HOW CUUUUTE!

I can see Daniel's little striped sleeve, even though it's blurry.

And he says "Baby, Hi." How absolutely adorable!

OMG how sweet! I bet he understands, at some level, what's going on.

My Uncle Bill, who was just two when my mom was born, used to pat my grandma's pregnant belly, smile proudly, and say "little sis'er" much to the shock of the neighbor ladies (this was 1928, and things like--gasp--pregnancy--were not discussed in polite company).

Even though it's a blurry picture, it's a beautiful picture. I actually think that's what makes it even more beautiful
