I really love the word "ripe" when describing a radiant and lovely woman with a full full baby belly. It is such a simple and small word that describes the end of pregnancy (and perhaps transition into the labor and birth period) so perfectly....so perfectly.
We have two very ripe and radiant mamas right now. I am very excited to meet each of their little babes. Neither of these families know the sex of the babies...I love the suprise! I love the waiting.
Little ripening babies! Can't wait! <3
