Have I mentioned . . .

Have I mentioned how amazing it is to feel the baby move? Our little guy is quite the mover - experts say that with your first you should start to feel the movement anywhere between 20-24 weeks. Well he was kicking hard at 18, "gonna be a soccer player"! So for 2 months now I have gotten to experience this little life moving inside me. It is pretty bazaar, but so amazing. The coolest part is when Ryan feels/sees him move also - I can't even start to explain the connection that I feel with Ryan & our child, it is like the coolest feeling of being a family and being filled with so much love. I have heard from friends who are parents that you cannot even imagine the love you feel with a child - I think I am beginning to understand what they are talking about. Sometimes I just lay there and think about our little boy and how he is living, hearing, thinking, and so connected to me right now - I hope I can remember these moments 4 months from now when I am going on 2 hours of sleep. Here is a picture of the precious little legs and feet we have been feeling. We are just getting into our third trimester - you know the one where I just get huge . . . so I am really trying to enjoy the little kicks, moves, and pokes now because I have a feeling as he grows it will not be quite as cute.

Have a great week!
