Ninja and His Incredible Beating Heart!



Where were we?

The headaches have started, and they are inhibiting my ability to write coherently. I will soldier on for you, Internet, if you will please forgive me my poorly-worded phrases and grammatical errors.

Today I heard the mighty Ninja's heartbeat.

I even videotaped it, but I am talking pretty loudly throughout, so it's incredibly hard to make out with all of my shouting.

But it was the most beautiful sound I have ever heard.

You are a baby, Ninj! With a little heart and everything. I can't quite wrap my head around that.

And yes, you are making your mama queasy and lethargic and achy and weepy: but still? I think you're all right, kid.

(Last night I lay in bed crying as J rubbed my head, attempting to ease the pressure in my skull. "Maybe," I sighed, "the tougher the pregnancy, the easier the baby." "Yeah," he said softly. "Probably." He lies because he cares.)

Ninja? I thought you were going to refer to the baby by its future name, "caskie"??!?

PS - I liked benjamin buford too (although kind of long and I hate tilda swinton). I watched it with a chick. She cried for like 45 minutes and she was not even with child.... i hope.

I seriously cried throughout the whole entire film, starting with the scene where he is 12 (or 80) and cries to his mama... That just about killed me dead.

(Who is this chick? I like her.)
