just for us

when we walked out of the imaging center tonight,
the snow was falling.
in big huge white flakes.
like a celebration.
just for us.
just for our special news:)
as if we were the only people on the planet to have ever received such wonderful news.
he sucked his thumb for the better part of the ultrasound.
all nestled up inside of me.
clutched his hands under his knees.
showed us his little button nose.
ten fingers.
and ten toes.
heart beating.
legs....
apart;)
arms.
stomach.
spine.
cord.
kidneys.
bladder.
head.
shoulders.
knees.
and more toes.
i love looking at the itty bitty toes.
tiny baby bum.
sucking his thumb.
11oz of little boy miracle.
that my body made.
is making.
growing.
without ever telling me how it was doing it.
or what it needed to do to do it.
how is that possible?
that something so complex can be created so simply.
so flawlessly.
completely subconscious of my mind.
amazing.
every
time.
