dearest little'un


dearest little one,
today you're eighteen and a half weeks and to celebrate we took you to mama's favourite musee in paris and stood you in front of monet's waterlillies, matisse's lounging women, picasso's embracing couple and renoir's strawberries. it felt peaceful carrying you around. we enjoyed the cool autumn breeze and ate homemade bagels for breakfast. a few days ago we visited our midwife or in française - sage-femme which means "wise-woman". she is definitely that, and above all very kind and thorough. we talked about how we would like you to be able to come into the world as gently and naturally as possible. we listened to your steady little heartbeat too. love m & p

  7. I love everything about this post:

    Yourself,
    your baby,
    your dress,
    the garden
    and the crazy fact that in Paris Monet seems to be an everyday, normal occurrence.

  13. I especially love the last picture. You look like you've popped right out of a Monet painting.
