more than a feeling

The big news this week is that I'm definitely feeling the baby move! Tiny little fluttery taps and bubbles. The first time it happened, it made me stop, laugh and immediately tell Chris that baby was tap-tapping on my belly. Couldn't stop smiling. Today at work as I sat at my desk writing, I could feel tons of activity in there. Amazing.

My belly's gone through a speedy growth spurt in the last week, so I'm showing a little more obviously. Big ultrasound in two weeks, when we hope to find out if our little bean is a girl or a boy. We're not excited at all. Nah.

remember or write down where you were when you felt your first flutter. lili and i were on the subway. i too smiled and laughed out loud the whole ride home. i say write it down because i think it tells a lot about your kid. lili loves anything in motion now.

thanks for the sweetness, guys.

good idea, kristen. it was right after i got off the phone with my mom and dad, so i think she's excited to meet her grandparents. (i think it's a boy so i don't know why i'm saying 'she')

So exciting! I haven't felt mine move yet but cannot wait! We have our ultrasound in 3 weeks. I think I'm having a boy too!
