Baby Kicks

This week I finally did it. Rather, she finally did it. She started kicking, and not only can I feel it but my husband can, too. And we can SEE it. And we are both amazed!

I first felt it Sunday afternoon while I was relaxing on the couch. Chuck was outside working in the garage. When I finally realized what was happening, I called him inside so he could see and feel it too. Actual baby kicks and pokes.
I had been feeling flutters, which felt more to me like vibrations, for a few weeks now and had been waiting for the day that I would feel something that I could say without a doubt was her. This is definitely her!

We are absolutely in awe.

Thank you, Lord, for the miracle of this growing, living baby!

Yay for baby kicks! What a wonderful feeling, huh? A constant reminder of the little miracle growing inside you. Enjoy each and every one of them (though I'll admit, the nighttime ones are hard to enjoy!)

Wow fantastic news! Congratulations. I remember those beautiful first kicks, they are something else. I am so excited for you. Enjoy them! Keep kicking your momma, little Lily!

Isn't that the best feeling?? My favorite was when I could feel Judah getting the hiccups. Right after he came, I knew it had to be my baby because one of the first things I saw him do as I was holding him was get the hiccups.

It IS amazing! I know that I was just pregnant a few months ago, but reading all of your posts kind of makes me want to do it all over again (but none too soon)! It is just such an awesome thing to feel that lively little gal inside of you. Oh, and it will get bigger and more powerful and ever (dare I say) uncomfortable. But in the most beautiful way. :)

Awesome! I bet she's going to be a little Mia Hamm just to let you know she is there.

Isn't it just the most wonderful feeling? There is a PERSON inside you!

I forgot to give you the wrap when we got together...I'll give it to you at your baby shower. I fully intend to go buy Mom may not make it...they're supposed to go to Houma to visit my brother that weekend. I'm trying to convince her to stay, though!
