my baby looks a lot like a gummi bear.

March 30, 2010

and sounds a lot like water squishing back & forth.

and he has an umbilical hernia
(or part of his intestine hangin’ free)
which the doctor says is normal for 9 weeks
and will right itself in the next two.

if i hadn’t been all nerves & tingles
i might’ve made a joke about how
his daddy’s umbilical hernia never did right itself
till he was 26 and got a brand new belly button.

and my baby bobs his head like patty griffin is singin’ to him.
(and my baby might well be a she but i can’t know yet,
and i’ll not reference my child as “it”.)

let’s bob his little head right now.

live forever video

you fathers and you mothers
be good to one another
please try to raise your children right
don’t let the darkness take ’em
don’t let ’em feel forsaken
just lead ’em safely to the light

when this old world is blowin’ us under
and all the stars fall from the sky
remember someone really loves you
we’ll live forever you and i

i’m gonna live forever
i’m gonna cross that river
i’m gonna catch tomorrow now

    really? Oh how exciting! I love how this is the “season” in the lives of so many of my friends. Lovin’ it! Will pray for those nerves and anxieties- I know how that goes!
