Things that Turn

Pages; vinyl records; milk when it is bad; sunflowers--towards the sun, chicory leaf--towards the north; a roly poly when touched; waffles and pancakes and merry-go-rounds; the night to cold, the day to warm; a light on and off; a friend on the street when you call out her name; that bright-eyed heart-eclipsed girl from the old 80's song; an old jerk, a new leaf; the seasons; a good car on a shiny dime; the time this Sunday, falling back; this baby girl inside me: head down now, Readying herself, the doctor says, to be born.

Yay! I knew she would. Just tell her there's no rush on being born. I'm only half-way through her special hand-knitted present.

It's frightening that something that big inside of you can do a 180 without you knowing...but Congrats! nonetheless

Erica said...

Thanks everyone! And, Natalie, I'm pretty certain I _know_ when she turned but I was waiting for confirmation from the doctor. You can never be too sure...
