    Pomegranate Belly
    Soheyla, Utah

    "Our baby was so fussy when he was in my belly. He wouldn't let me eat anything, almost everything made me sick for the whole 9 months. The one thing he loved was pomegranates! I had to eat a pomegranate almost every day to keep this baby happy. Pomegranate season was over and I still had a few months left before he was born so all of my family was looking for pomegranates in the health food store, buying pomegranate juice, and even my friends in England offered to send me pomegranates from there because they still had them in season. So we decided to paint my belly as a pomegranate because he loved them so much!"
