I’ve been wanting to share a video I took about three weeks before Elliot was born. I guess I feel it’s too special to keep to myself. It’s a happy memory.
I don’t remember exactly why I took this video. I think I wanted to show Ben how active Elliot was in the evenings, after he’d fall asleep. Or maybe I just had a feeling.
Elliot would always dance around until Ben put his hand on my belly. Then she’d settle down. As soon as he took his hand away, she’d start dancing again. She loved that trick, especially at bedtime.
In the evenings, before bed, it was always just three of us. The world was quiet and nothing else mattered. We were together, and so happy.
This video makes me smile every time I watch it.
