Mama Memory

When I was pregnant with Mo I was still teaching and my class threw me a baby shower. Here's my favorite bump pic. Nothing sums up my life then that this shot.

By Christmas 2009, Mo was about 20 months and I was hugely pregnant with Maeve. At the time we had not found the gender, yet everyone, EVERYONE believed I was carrying a boy. From my relatives, to old ladies at the grocery store to the little Vietnamese man who did my pedicure a week before delivery, I heard the continued chorus that it was a boy, defintely a boy.
Not quite a month later, "It's a girl!" was screamed in the OR as Maeve Kathleen made her debut two days before her scheduled arrival date.

  1. That first pic makes me laugh- I was teaching while I was pregnant with my first, too.

    That last shot is so cute!

  2. I like that first photo too, and love the second one.

    With my second pregnancy most everyone thought it was a boy, even the Chinese woman who came up to me and put her hands on my belly and said "I feel boy."

    They were wrong.


Let me know what you think.
