Last week when we visited my OB/GYN, Adam stole the show the moment we opened the office door: “Where’s the baby at?!” he squealed as we made our grand entrance. The room was filled with women– many of them pregnant– and he plopped down on the sofa asking a million questions trying to comprehend the fact that babies only lived in certain female bellies. Once we made our way to the ultrasound room he was quick to notice the dimmed lights and screen on the wall. “Are we watching a movie?! Is it Thomas?!” He also noticed my fashionable ‘dress’ and asked if ‘that woman’ was hurting my tummy– and despite his interest in his sibling didn’t seem particularly enthralled by the heartbeat.
Saturday we celebrated the 21st birthday of Maris. It was her actual date of birth but the party was for the twins turning six. As much as I loved the event I couldn’t help but feel envious of the kids frolicking on the inflatable water slide. Adam lived vicariously through me and had a blast! I’ll be sure to post pictures as soon as we get them.
That night I attended Bella Luna Bliss at Neshoba. We learned to give and receive diksha [Pure White Light Blessing] which was the most rejuvenating thing I’ve experienced in a very long time. April Fowler performed a wonderful blessing on me and I used Mariah Riggins as a guinea pig for practice. It did not go unnoticed by the other ladies that I appeared ‘lighter’ than I was at the last gathering several months ago.
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
