Here With You




From the beginning of our relationship, Andrew and I fell into a pattern of unfiltered honesty with one another, a raw directness that far surpasses polite censorship but falls a safe distance short of straight cruelty. I find it reassuring.

It's good to have someone like that by your side when you vomit on yourself and you look like a house and you raise your voice because the ice cubes were not crushed into small enough chunks.

He's the man who holds my hair back and insists that I'm beautiful and yet reminds me that I'm being a punk about the ice chips.

But then he still gets me the smaller ones, anyway.

That man of yours is a treasure ... it is good of you to realize this, in your hormone-fogged reality.

The pop-up timer will go off very soon, signalling that this little one of yours is finished cooking. Then the REAL fun begins. They grow up SO fast.

What a beautiful blog! I browsed for awhile and then hit the "join" button. I love your relationship with Andy...that honesty is so good. And your tummy!! Love how it looks. I carried twins and would never have allowed anyone to photograph mine except one time, right at the end. When I look back at it I am glad and at the same time horrified. Who knew a tummy could get so large AND stretched out of shape at the same time.

"too many houses, and a boatload of projects", seems to me the most important project is happening naturally.
Enjoy your hormonal roller coaster ride with a good man by your side, given the photos, you look ravishing doing it. Enjoy this moment.
