Taken on her due date

Some people have very beautiful tummies when they are pregnant. They are in magazines with blurred edges and lovely hands holding a perfectly round belly with no stretch marks.

Not me. I go for lots of stretch marks, lots of hippy tattoos, and lots of precious kicks in my side, right where the happy face is on the left side of the picture. I can still point to the exact spot on my tummy where her little heel would push out and show itself to the world. I wouldn't trade that for the most perfect belly shots possible. This memory is much more special.
