23 Weeks and "Getting His Excercise"
I love being pregnant...more than I ever imagined! The little guy is a serious mover. I feel him all throughout the day and the other morning he actually woke me up with his flailing. Yesterday morning as Brett and I lay in bed, we both watched my stomach ripple as he was "getting his exercise" as Brett calls it. We started chatting about our precious baby and our absolute amazement of his growing little body. My goal throughout my pregnancy has been to enjoy each and every stage. I hear all the time "I can't wait for... the baby to come" or "...the baby to start smiling" or "....the baby to start crawling". It's so ironic that these same people in the end say "I just wish my baby was a baby again" or " I want to be pregnant and have a belly again." I am trying to embrace every stage of my pregnancy. Don't get me wrong, I think about being able to hold him for the first time every day! As Brett and I started to talk about how our lives will change he said "I just can't wait until he can recognize me and get excited when I come home." I quickly made the point of enjoying is development as he grows. Living in the present and not in the future is something that doesn't come easy but is very rewarding in the end. Feeling his little movements makes my heart flutter and is a constant reminder of how very blessed we are to have him growing so healthy and strong. I love my little boy more than anything in the world!
No-More Belly Shots. My Mom was horrified when she saw that I posted a picture of my bare belly on my blog a while back. She said "Grandma looks at your blog!!" I think it is fun to look back and see how it has grown. I don't think it is inappropriate at all. What do you think?? Honestly!!
