remember when...

Remember when you were in my belly?
You were always so gentle.
No pokes or prods from you.
No fingers poking my rib cage.
You slept when I slept.

Remember when I woke up and thought of the most perfect name for you?

I started calling you that name right away. Right then and there at 4am when I got up to go pee because you were sleeping on my bladder.

I called you your name before I even talked it over with Daddy.

Remember when I listened to Sinatra REALLY loud when we were home, just me and you?

and you swayed inside my belly as though you were dancing.

Remember when you stayed so still that I thought something may be wrong?

I was so scared for you that I called Nana quick and then daddy and then rushed Bubby and Pumpkin still in their pj's to the hospital?

Remember when they told me you were fine and I cried happy tears?

I loved you so much already.

Remember a year ago this very minute when I was in labour?

When soon we would meet face to face.

You shot out so fast that amniotic fluid flew airborn almost hitting the nurse! :)

You came so fast and the doctor almost missed it all?

Do you remember you were perfect?

Perfectly you.

Our sweet little Bear.

Happy first birthday tomorrow, Bear.

I'm making you a train cake.

We love you so very much!
