Those are blueberries. Painting a picture every day means that I can paint something on a whim if I want. So I painted blueberries.

When I found out I was pregnant, the embryo was just the size of a blueberry. So, that’s what I called her for 7 months – it just stuck. The week she was due, I wrote on the calendar in giant letters, “Blueberry’s Birth Week!”

Then she was born, and I called her by her name. I don’t think I ever called her blueberry again. Weird how some nicknames stick and others just don’t, even if you want them to.
