Bits & Pieces of Me.

The girls felt the baby kick for the first time! They squealed and giggled in amazement. And I laughed like a jolly Buddha with a big round belly. The girls poked their fingers against my tummy. “It feels squishy.” One of them said. “It’s like jelly.”

Mmm…jelly filled donut…

I explained about the amniotic sac and how the baby pees in there. “Ew.” They said.

Alana put her head on my belly. And Mia pushed her off yelling, “You’re touching the pee!”

 …

Today, Mark and I went to my ultrasound appointment and we saw the baby’s peanut. It’s a boy! I’m so excited. A part of me never expected this to happen but now I know, it was meant to be. I can’t wait to meet our son, Abraham Makai Kagaoan, and learn all about him. I’m so happy. And so is Mark, of course. He started acting all tough and macho. He feels like he accomplished something because there are so many girls in his family.

I’m can’t wait to see how the girls interact with their brother. I feel so full of love. My heart is expanding along with my waistline.
