I went to dinner with some of the girls last night and Jaime brought her baby.
I'm fascinated by pregnancy. I mean, Jaime has a WHOLE PERSON INSIDE OF HER. She's making a BRAND NEW HUMAN BEING. This sounds so hokey but honestly, babies are a total miracle. It blows my mind that women get to do this.
I've been re-reading one of my favorite books, Crossing to Safety by Wallace Stegner, and there is a line that jumped out at me this week. The narrator comes into the room where his pregnant wife and her pregnant best friends are talking and observes:
"I see them there, and think how in those two women four hearts are beating, and it awes me."
Holy crap, me too.
