on this day in july


Mr. Curry is making breakfast potatoes, toast (not for me, Gluten-Head), bacon and juice. Lola is watching cartoons. Dakota just woke up crying and shaking from a bad dream in which Mr. Curry and I were being total assholes. Mr. Curry, Lola and my pregnant self went to Starbucks this morning to get my Starbucks Doubleshot half-caf and Lola wore a brown newspaper boy hat and striped Boden shorts and looked like the complete wonderous girl she is. Mr. Curry is browned from working in the sun, despite my leaving the sunblock in the bathroom sink where he has to admit he saw it, and looks strong and muscular and completely sexy. He has the best legs ever. Let's just admit it. And that muscle that snakes from his shoulders down the sides of his back? Forget it. In a few hours we will stop by Target to buy Lola a toy she earned, and head to the local Fourth of July celebration at the awesome Community Park, just a five minute drive from our house, in which we will see half the people we know and get a feeling Mrs. Moon gets in spades in Lloyd but that is rare in big ole San Diego: community. Ever is kicking daily and I am finally believing I am going to be the most incredibly blessed Mommy on the planet and get to have this baby. Every day I love her more and can 'see' her more clearly in my mind's eye. I try to reach out to her with my cells, because they know her, even if I don't yet. Mr. Curry and I saw Eclipse yesterday, and I thought as I watched it that Ever is a terrifically perfect vampire name. Her name to me says newspaper reporter, artist, sharp eyed, opinionated, stubborn, dreamy, idealistic, hard working, intelligent, proud, huge hearted and private souled. We shall see. Ian is on a camping trip and Dakota will come with us to the celebration before leaving for a friend's house who has the dual awesome factors of 1 a swimming pool and 2 direct line of sight to the fireworks.

Happy Fourth !!!

Oh, love. Is that really you and Ever?
Beauty, beauty. I am so glad your heart is learning to trust the truth of this baby. My god, I can't wait to see her face. And yours and Mr. Curry's when you meet her.

That is such an awesome photo, and I was hoping it was you, but think you're just as fabulous for finding it and posting it. Reading about his plans, I don't know what Dakota was dreaming about, because clearly you're both awesome parents too.
Sounds like a good time will be had for all and I'm so excited to know Ever is kicking away in there.
Blessings!

So exciting isn't it, to grow under your heart what will live within it forever? Happiness blooms here and I drank my fill.

Hope you had a great day, community-style. I absolutely love and respect the name Ever. Totally unique and a gift of a name, indeed.

Is that a picture of you and Ever? My God, whoever it is, it's one of the most beautiful pregnant bellies I've ever seen... (Mine was so unattractive. The belly began at the boobs and sort of make a square! Then the butt had get bigger so I wouldn't tip over! Funny, huh?)

Anyway, I hope everyone had a great time! Oh and PS I used to play a game with Harley when he was in the belly... When he would kick, I would press back. Often he would keep kicking in response. Once, I swear he counted to three!!! You know, how Mr. Ed used to, with is foot. xoxo pf
