Out of the mouths of babes

Some of you may recall that several of my friends are pregnant. That, coupled with the fact that I have taken pictures of a few of them and their beautiful pregnant bellies (and have been working on their pictures on my computer), has lead Ava to believe that we ALL have a baby in our belly.

She was eating lunch a few days ago, when she stopped what she was doing, pulled up her shirt, grabbed her chubby rolls and said, “baby.” I tried to explain to her that she didn’t have a baby in her belly. She looked perplexed, pointed at my belly and said, “baby?” And I again said no, no baby in mommy’s belly either.

Later that night she did it again first with herself, then with me, and this time included dad, stating he had a baby in his belly as well. :)

She does this every now and then. It’s super cute but hard for me to explain that only some women have babies in their bellies, when so many of the women she sees regularly do. ;)
