Busta Move Baby

I got to feel my baby move this week! What an amazing feeling. It was just the tiniest little tickle from inside. I've possibly felt it move before this week, but at that time I wasn't sure if it was the baby or just some little gas bubbles. But this week I can for sure say it was the baby. And ever since I felt it move, I've been able to feel it about once a day. I look forward to that moment each day.

Tom heard that if you shine a light onto my belly the baby will move away from the light and I could maybe feel it move. We've done this a time or two and I've felt nothing. After we had done this a couple of times, I got to thinking...if the baby is moving away from the light, that would mean it is afraid of the light. So, here we are, scaring the shit out of our baby for our own entertainment purposes. Now Tom is afraid we've scarred it for life and the baby is going to have some sort of twitch each time someone turns on a light. Parenting skills may not be off to the best start! :-)

I better quit blogging now...I've got a busy day ahead of me.....growing little toes and kidneys and stuff. It's an exhausting job, but someones gotta do it.

Ah, I miss being pregnant for that reason! Feeling a little person inside you is the most amazing thing ever! It gets even better when you can have Tom feel too! And, never second guess your parenting skills, you guys will be great!

We scared the baby twice, it will give us a lifetime of scares.
