Over six years ago, I received a voicemail message from my then four-year-old niece Olivia to tell me that my sister-in-law was pregnant. All she said on the voicemail was, “There’s a baby in the tummy. There’s a baby in the tummy.” My roommate Martha and I saved that message for weeks.
Well, now I have the same news to share. There’s a baby in MY tummy!
It still sounds so crazy to say out loud. Who, me? Pregnant? But now that I’m five months along, it’s becoming more and more real. I’ve fallen in love with elastic-waisted jeans. (Why didn’t anyone tell me about this wonderful invention before?) I’m also starting to feel the little bambino flutter inside. We’re going to wait to find out if we’re having a boy or girl… so for now, we pray for Baby H and watch the bump grow!
