Anticipation

For a couple of weeks, B has been really anxious about feeling the baby move. I have been able to really feel her for about a month and I think he was feeling a little left out. Every time she would kick, I would put his hand to my belly in hopes of him sharing the excitement. We even tried laying on the bed with his face to my belly (we heard faces are more sensitive than hands) to see if that worked. No luck. All the websites (shhh, don't tell my doc that we were looking at pregnancy related items on the Internet...he won't be happy!) said we still had a few more weeks before the dads were really able to feel the baby move. So we just waited and he kept asking, "What does it feel like?" or "Does it hurt when she kicks/moves?" I knew he just couldn't wait!

Well last night (during one of her more active times-11:30pmish-yes, I know I'm in trouble if she keeps up this pattern) B finally got to feel his baby girl move!! Yay! I was in bed and he was getting ready for bed and she was just movin' and groovin' which makes me laugh a little...not sure why. Anyway, he comes running and lays down with his face on my belly and we just wait. Sure enough, a few minutes later, she said "hello" to her daddy by kicking him in the head. He just looked at me and said, "Was that her?" Umm yeah, unless there's something else in there I don't know about. Hehe. It was so precious to see how excited he was to be able to finally "share" in the experience with me. He was able to feel her a few more times before she decided she had enough of playing and calmed down a little but to see him so excited was such a treasure! ♥ it!

here he is waiting to feel her...



Be still my heart.

So cute! Jeff used to put his hands on my tummy while I slept and prayed over Nathan. He said that Nathan would go crazy active when he was praying over him. That boy never stopped moving. BTW, I love the shirts. I cannot wait to put him in them and take pictures to show you!

Each pregnancy it seems that is my favorite moment...when Daddy feels baby for the first time. For some reason at that point it was "real" to me because we both felt it, kwim? Love it. Love that your hubs is so excited--as it should be! :-) Can't wait to meet this baby girl!
