Magical and Sparkly

I heard my new little one’s heart beat today. I heard it with my first born. In the same office as with he and his brother. With the same doctors. It was magical, beautiful and oh so wonderful to experience this with Neenee.

The look in his eyes sparkled of total awe. The smile on his face said more than any words could. The nurse said, “150 beats per minute” just like I had heard with both my boys.

Today, this morning, was a beautiful moment I’ll not soon forget…if ever. My heart swelled with every beat and swelled even more with every sparkle in my first baby boy’s eyes.

A very special day indeed.

  1. Dear Nell,

    I’m working with Parents.com to promote this summer’s Best Baby Bump Contest (https://www.parents.com/bump-contest), and I would like to invite parents-to-be such as yourself to enter their best pregnant belly photos on the parents.com website before September 30, 2008. One winner will receive a $2,500 prize.

    Liz Zack, Executive Editor of Parents magazine, says, “We want you to take your best pregnant belly photos – from little baby bumps to big pregnant bellies – and enter them into our Baby Bump Contest. While you’re there, share and comment on other people’s pregnant belly photos, too.”

    As a blogger, you represent an important and influential part of the online community. In addition to entering, Parents invites you to spread the word and encourage your readers to vote for you and enter their own photos in The Best Baby Bump Contest.
