body parts

Today, he has been kicking up a storm, and while he's not yet giving me the hard, "uffda" kicks that Daniel did in his later months, I can see the surface of my tummy move. And if I put my fingers on my skin in the right places, I can feel something like a little elbow, or heel. It's almost as if I could grab it, catch it, give him a squeeze. He's 22 weeks along now, as of tomorrow. It's nice to feel him there. We've been calling him by the name we're pretty sure we're going to give him, so it's feeling like his name now, and already it makes him seem like more of a little person. I am excited for him.

Can't wait to meet you little man!

I hope you won't kick your mommy so hard that she pees in her pants.

I mentioned in the previous post (about being thankful) how I'm "moved" by your boy surviving surgery. Now it sounds like he's "moving" in return!

Very cool, Em. I'm so excited for you and your family. How wonderful to be at this phase when you can feel your little one moving so much. :)
