getting used to being up

5:50am.

turns out most of my neighbors leave their porchlights on all night.

the silence is not at all frightening, but deeply calming, which is interesting, since i was the little girl who was afraid to be the last one awake at sleepovers.

eight months ago, i was up scanning the internet in search of an explanation for the way i was feeling.

right now i'm up drinking some water and eating a sandwich, waiting for these now-familiar contractions to subside.

soon i'll be up rocking and feeding my sleepy little baby girl, listening to lullabies.

silence, dreaming about having that baby in your arms instead of inside your body ... what a great picture! Linn

I know how you feel...being awake when the city is sleeping...I like the peacefulness of it all too...for the most part

Hope all is well. New dream about you: You were in some dress and you looked like your old self but then I thought, "wait she's pregnant" and you turned to your side to reveal your protuding stomach...can life get any more surreal? Growing in more ways than years.
