Anthony and San are gearing up to have a beautiful baby girl, and I can't wait! As we were doing this shoot I couldn't help but remember what it felt like being pregnant. I remembered the aches, the pains, and of course the feeling like you are the biggest, most emotional wreck you'll ever be. People told me I glowed, but I didn't believe them. I mean, I felt alright in the second trimester, but glow? Pfft! I was just happy if I could get my pants on.
And then there's San, and it's pretty obvious, she glows. Only she not only glows, she radiates. The whole shoot, she had the most beautiful smile. It was infectious. It was the smile of a soon-to-be mother. It will be the same smile that will comfort her baby girl when she's sad, the smile that will see her off to kindergarten, and the smile that will watch her fall in love one day. I think about these things a lot when I see pregnant women, or women with new babies. Our facial features are what communicate to our little ones that everything is alright, or when it's not. My own baby watches my cues constantly, and I'm almost positive, that a bomb could be going off behind her (well, a really quiet one), and as long as I was smiling and spoke in a cute voice, she'd be completely oblivious. That's how powerful a mother's smile is. Without a doubt, San's smile will carry her little girl through the passage of time, like an everlasting cradle. And that my friends, is a beautiful thing.
Oh, and Anthony was cool too.
