Baby Steps

I felt the baby kick for the first time the other day. Sarah's been feeling him move for a while now, but every time I put my hand on her tummy, he decides to relax. But the other night, while lying in bed, he gave me one swift Bruce Lee kick to the palm announcing in no uncertain terms that he's in there and he's comin' out fightin'.

The moment was precious to me. My boy seems to like it in there. He shifts and pushes his way around as he remodels Sarah's tummy. Sometimes she says he gets feisty and does a river-dance. But he seems to be at peace. We hope he enjoys the morning conversations we have with him and the books we've read him (The first bed-time story I read him was Walter The Farting Dog). And we can't wait to meet him.
