One Year...

Sunday, March 14, 2010

Bobby and Maya have been alive for one year. One year ago, we conceived them and they came into being. Not Peter. Not me. But them. All that makes them who they are. In a tiny speck. Maya's eyes were blue... Her hair and skin were light... She was a she... Bobby's eyes and hair were brown... His skin was olive... He was a he. All in that moment. Even before she had hands, Maya's DNA determined her long "piano fingers". Before he had a face, Bobby's cute "chipmunk cheeks" were meant to be. One year. 365 days. Wow.

It strikes me that Bobby and Maya were born 6 months ago and conceived 12 months ago. They have been on the outside for their life on the inside. Even though they were, through pregnancy dating, 27w5d, conceptually, they were 25w5d in my womb. They have now lived beyond that. They were 25w5d on the 9th of this month, a day before their 6 month birthday.

Wow. I am still in awe of this beauty. Of the beauty that happened one year ago. We will always celebrate this day as the day that our children came into being. And what a beautiful day it will always be.
