for katie, who couldn't come over today because she has a cold and i have a newborn.

* This was painted by one of the midwives at the birth center. Just another reason I am glad I fired my doctor.
My friend Katie is an artist and I thought she'd appreciate this. I was going to email her a photo of my crazy belly painting, from the week before Everett emerged. But then I thought, the internet probably wants to see this too. Because after you've given birth in front of a room full of strangers, posting your painted belly feels, well...modest.

that is AWESOME! seriously what a great memory to have.... Thank God your MD sucked... He knew what he was doing... I seriously will have to consider (if they even let me) trying to have a baby down there... 2 c-sections under my belt, who knows! You rock... and my cold sucks!
