This Thing

My new ritual – I wake up early and have breakfast.  I sit in my favorite chair and catch up on emails and whatever else.  The room is quiet and I am still and the morning light is percolating through the trees outside the windows.  After I’m done eating, there’s this moment when I can sit and feel my baby move.  It moves gracefully, tapping lightly – as though it knows we’re spending this time together just the two of us.  This knock-knock “I am here Mommy.”  This makes me anxious to meet my little belly dweller.
