Getting through pregnancy, one swollen foot at a time.

"Even miracles take a little time."

"Each day of our lives we make deposits into the memory banks of our children."

"Think happy thoughts."

"It's okay to be scared. Being scared means you're about to do something really, really brave."

"You are not your age, Nor the size of clothes you wear, You are not a weight, Or the colour of your hair. You are not your name, Or the dimples in your cheeks, You are all the books you read, And all the words you speak. You are your croaky morning voice, And the smiles you try to hide, You’re the sweetness in your laughter, And every tear you’ve cried. You’re the songs you sing so loudly, When you know you’re all alone, You’re the places that you’ve been to, And the one that you call home. You’re the things that you believe in, And the people that you love, You’re the photos in your bedroom, And the future you dream of. You’re made of so much beauty, But it seems that you forgot, When you decided that you were defined, By all the things you’re not."

"Nine months isn't so long when you're waiting for the new love of your life."
