Ben’s Growth

I had this realization yesterday as I was comparing the pictures below of Ben that Lawrence uploaded.  It’s obvious to most but seemed incredible to me (in the un-credible sense): all of Ben’s growth has been due to nourishment from me.  Since conception and til now, every cell of his has been sustained solely through what I eat.  What an awesome (in the full of awe sense) responsibility to have as a mother.

Lawrence did rain on my parade a bit when I told him my realization, “Well, technically he’s also getting some calorie supplements in your milk at the NICU.” Thanks for that, Dad.

    I remember having the exact same thought for each of our boys, and felt a lot of pride about it. And I compared dads to PI: they contribute a little bit at the beginning, cheer up along the way, but always end up putting their name as last author on the accomplished work!
