First let me say, I must have had one too many egg nogs this evening , since I am crazy enough to put a pic up of my 9 month pregnant bare belly for all the world to see… but I don’t care…I loved being pregnant … loved the belly… and ..well..there it is in all it’s glory!
This New Years Eve, I feel reflective on the last three years , and how quick time goes (not just a cliche after all). My daughter was born on Janary 2nd … she will be 3 years old in a few days… and it is so amazing to watch a “little me” see the world. It seems like only yesterday I felt her moving in my belly, with her big brother talking to her … saying “Hi Helicopter, I can’t wait to meet you” or “Good Morning Poopi Sinai” yep… , that was not a typo…. my son wanted to call her Helicopter or Poopi Sinai … don’t ask …… luckily for her, he didnt win …and she was named Gianna …
I love when I get to work on maternity canvases for moms to be … i love the words they choose …. I love the artistic ways people photograph their tummies … I think it is so beautiful…and such a special time in a womans life…it is great to have something to remember it by … it is not too often us girls are proud to show off our stomachs …know what I am saying?? One of my favorite songs on these canvases are “You’ll Be Blessed” , by Elton John … I had it playing in my room at the hospital when my son was born …
Now my daughter is turing 3, helping me cook pancakes in the morning for her Daddy and her Brother…. giving me GIRL attitude one minute and loving and kissing me the next …. she is stubborn like me and silly like me…and I love watching her grow ….
Another one of my favorite lyrics lately (thanks to my great clients!) has been “I loved her first”
But I loved her first and I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me ……
You get the idea………what a tear jerker … do you have any songs that bring a tear to your eye about your child or loved one?? I would love to hear them….
To all my readers …Have a Happy and Safe New Years …..
I look forward to an exciting 2010 with you!
