10 Years Later (Anonymous)

July 24, 2007

I gave birth to my first and only child ten years ago- a son named Zachary. He’s awesome. He plays the violin and pokemon and likes Science, but hates hurricanes and tornados, and plays music really loud and runs around the house to it. I love him more than sunshine, moonlight, good coffee, snow days, and all other excellent things in the world. My favorite Zac quote so far is, “Humans are wierd because we try so hard to pretend we’re not animals.” I’ll be 35 this year, and I don’t think I’ll have more kids. Ten years ago, I decided to get pregnant, got pregnant, had the boy, and life’s been a blast with him. But now… see, a friend of mine just found out she was pregnant and she brought me back… day dreaming about my own pregnancy… and I ended up here. I love this site, and I love all of your pictures. If I decide to have another baby this year, consider yourselves partly responsible. Here are my pictures. One of my poochy tummy, some back fat which I earned during pregnancy and will never shed, some silvery stretch marks which are faded but still show up pretty good, and finally, the boy.

    you look beautiful! i don’t think your tummy is poochy at all….oh and i’m glad i’m not the only one who got back fat!!! i have lost almost all my (very excessive) pregnancy weight after 7 months, but the chubby lower back is still here. i guess i should just come to terms with it :)

    That was so poetic. It brought tears (of happines) to my eyes. I have a son Zac as well. He is 12 now and I had him when I was 26.

    Last year I had another and it is fun doing it all again.

    You have such a feminine tummy. I don’t think it’s poochy. Its subtle curve below your belly button reminds me of renaissance paintings.

    The boy. hehe We call my husbands first son boy-child as a nickname a lot. Almost too old for that to fit anymore though.

    You look wonderful and he does sound like fun. I hope my first and only daughter is going to be like that. =)

    You look GREAT! I mean everything looks great. What poochy belly and back fat? I’d love to have your back. It looks slender, and so does your stomach. I really hope one day I look like that.
