I have to share this experience I had this morning with Rachel. I was laying on the sofa, with Rachel sitting on my arm, reading her a story. (These are Rachel’s favorite books. [Thanks Lisa.] Could it be the dogs on every page? Could it be the very short content of each page?)
Anyway, as we finished the books, Rachel pulled up my shirt to play with my belly and my belly button. I’m not sure which she likes better. I told her “There’s a baby in there. Be soft with the baby.”
Rachel started stroking my belly, and then she said “ahhhh” and laid her head down on my belly. It was so sweet, and so cute.
