that next night the husband went out with his brothers downtown Nashville and finally got into bed around 2:00 in the morning. it was then that i felt that first "kick". i immediately grabbed my husband's hand and put it on the spot. he had no idea what i was doing and i wish i could have seen his reaction, but it was pitch black in our room. although i can just imagine by how big he gasped. i was so grateful that we both could share those first kicks/punches together. i couldn't ask for a better "christmas" gift to share with my husband.
two days later, laying on my back again, baby decided to become active around 11:00 at night and yet again the husband was right next to me. seeing that "o" in his face and it light up made me so happy. it was a crazy feeling knowing there is a little something inside you that you can't quite control and has a mind of it's own.
it's this week that i finally began to feel "pregnant" in that when i went to reach for something sitting down, there was something in my way when i went to grab it from the ground. i'm sure this feeling will only get worse the bigger i get.
baby isn't even here yet, and it still received a ton of gifts for christmas already. and this girl went on a shopping spree at the PX to get two more pairs of maternity pants (one pair just isn't going to cut it now) and they were only $9 a pair! :) and a couple new shirts, including the one i'm wearing in the photo. so now i officially have a full wardrobe of maternity clothing. this momma is excited!
