Some say I should hide you, fully covered! But I am proud of you! Should I wear a bikini to show you off or should I keep you hidden to myself? I am all for showing you off!
I catch a glimpse of you as I walk past a mirror and I am shocked. Is that me? Somehow in my mind, it seems as though you should still be flat and not hold another life inside of you. But there you are, getting bigger each day that passes and I just can’t get enough of you.
I hold you in my hands and look at you in awe. You mark the growth of our first child, a baby girl. I gladly take all the fat jokes and smile proudly when someone calls me prego.
Each morning and night I massage you with creams to help you stretch, and keep stretching! You are so beautiful, my growing and round belly!
I finally get to adorn you in maternity clothes…some that have been in my closet for YEARS! I feel something move inside of you and I smile at the miracle that you are carrying, silently thanking God!
I know that this is just a brief moment in time and I am cherishing each and every second of this growing belly of mine!
