it has been a busy week…too much work – not enough rest
and you’re starting to demand it!!
many things happened this week:
my belly just “popped”
I’ve felt you above my belly button for the first time
We’ve had priority in the supermarket (long) queue for the first time too

today we had our 21 weeks ultrasound
everything is ok.
it was amazing to see how big you already are
to see more details of you,
…lips, nose, long hands, long legs…
it was funny because you never stopped moving…never

“Since I was a little girl…until now and I guess – forever…
strangely as it may seem…Happy Birthday is the worst song you can
ask me to sing.”

reminder fifty one:: 100 Truths about Me

October 23rd, 2010

“I spent my life searching for something I never knew exactly what it was.
I’ve always felt that something was missing.
My heart was never quite filled.

I know. the search is over. nothing is missing. my heart is warm and filled.”

“passei toda a minha vida à procura. à procura de algo que nunca soube bem o que era.
sempre senti que me faltava alguma coisa.
o meu coração nunca esteve completo.

de repente,
eu sei. a procura terminou. não me falta nada. o meu coração morno e iluminado encheu-se e
está agora completo.”

mar bravo

October 23rd, 2010

um dia perfeito de Outono que me esqueci de perpetuar aqui…

sol morno e intermitente,
chuva fina e doce,
vento libertador,
mar bravo e imponente!

we’ve reached half way…or so “they” say
all that I can say is that time is flying way to fast…’cause I’m enjoying
every second of this journey and I don’t want it to pass.
the bright side is that we are flying to reach an “end” to this journey that
is nothing more than the beginning of something, I anticipate,
amazing and fulfilling – with you, here in our arms.
my belly is growing, but it’s funny how most people don’t see I’m pregnant
unless I say it or dress something more tight…but I guess if I walked around
half naked there would be less doubt…don’t you think?!
this week, if I could, this was how I would spend my days, in my pajamas
snuggling and nesting…but for now…I have work waiting for me at the office.
so…off I go…
