Kicker

Finally, the moment you've all been waiting for...the name!!! Actually, I really need to quit "crying wolf" here, or noone will believe me when I tell you her real name. For now, though, I think she wants to be called "Kicker" instead of "Baby Girl". She's really been active lately. I used to worry that she would be too laid back and sleep all the time and I wouldn't ever feel her move except for a few little brushes every now and then. Now, she moves tons! And its still exciting every time--I love it! Sometimes it feels like she's playing a game with herself--"How many times can I kick Mommy in a minute? I think a zillion." Maybe she's kick boxing, or running in place, or riding air bicycle. Those are her daytime games. At night, when I lay down for bed, she starts up again. "Maybe if I kick Mommy really hard, Daddy will feel it and know I want to play with him. Boom!Boom!Boom!Boom!Boom!" It doesn't hurt, just feels kind of funny. I think I will miss that when she's born, but playing with her in person will be soo much better! In the meantime, I'm still waiting to SEE movement. I think that will be amazing!

Just wait until she starts mooning you!

Yes, you'll miss her moving around when she is born. You'll miss knowing that everything is right with her, that she is safe, fed, and happy. And quiet.

I know after Everett was born there was more than one occasion when I wished I could put him back, so I wouldn't have to try to figure out what he wanted when he was crying like that!

Becky told me that after C.J. was born, she ate something to make her really gassy so it would feel like baby kicks.

LOL! I didn't miss the baby kicks so much. Mainly I was just thankful that I was allowed to finally get out of bed, and that I had a relatively healthy baby.

As for your kicker, maybe she's going to be an all-star soccer player, Lydia! You never know.

OF COURSE IT WAS BECAUSE OF THE LANGUAGE!

I missed the dirty language. Darn.

Yeah, I sometimes eat lots of beans so I can feel my intestines rumble and pretend it's CJ moving around again. Weird, I know.

Besides, the farts are so satisfying! Sometimes, it's like listening to Louie Armstrong!
