My current fascination is the human body and everything it is capable of. (Or should that say "Everything of which it is capable?" Preposition nazis, please help!)
Anyway, I'm a sucker for those stories about a 95 year old grandmother who finished a marathon after getting her liver removed. Or more recently, those people in Haiti that survived days and days under rubble, without food or water.
But this week I am amazed by my friend Amy. She carried her twins for 36 weeks and change, was never on bedrest, and gave birth to:
Girl baby: 6 pounds, 11 oz and 20 3/4 inches.
Boy baby: 6 pounds, 4 oz and 20 inches.
This is amazing to me because Amy is tiny. Well, not tiny - I mean, she is like 5'8", which doesn't qualify as tiny. I just mean she is very fit and slender. I have no idea how her body expanded to accommodate these two little munchkins. But it did. And it's amazing.
(Not posting names or pictures because I don't want to steal her thunder. But trust me, those are some cute babies.)
