Out as long as in...


He has been out as long as he was in and I still can't believe he's real. 

How can two minutes, two "cells", two bodies make something that grows from a pin drop to monthly fruit and veggie comparisons in your belly to a slippery sliding football at birth to this moving, grooving, squealing, smiling can't be a real boy. 

He is though, a real boy. My real boy. Our real boy. The one I'm holding right now as he drools on my shoulder and snores. The one whose alien movements we watched in my belly trying to guess what was an elbow, arm or leg. The one who is blowing my mind and blowing up my world with every new feeling and lesson learned. 

He has been out as long as he was in and I still can't believe he's real.
