going back

Dear Isaac,

Last October, when my mom came out to San Diego to visit, I was about 7 months pregnant with you. She came with me to get an ultrasound and she took some photos (because, well, she's your grandma).

A year later, last month (October), we went back for a visit. I thought it would be fun to take some pictures of you now, in the same place that we were looking at you in my belly just a short year ago.

Isaac, you were that little once! Since you turned 9 months old just last month, you have now officially spent as much time outside of the womb as you did inside. And I think the time passed much more quickly.

Now stop growing up!!

It's incredible to look back. It's even better to go back.

It really is true what they say, "what a difference a year makes." I cannot even imagine what differences there will be in the year to come. But I'm so excited to see them.

I love you dearly,

mommy (or "ama" as you say)
