I saw it!!

I saw my belly move today. From the inside. I'm just getting little thumps here and there, so it didn't occur to me to try and watch for them until today. But I can see the kicks! It looks like I have a twitch or something, but I can definitely see them. This may be old hat for some of you, but I am still amazed that there is a little person inside of me, and everytime I reach a new milestone in this pregnancy I am awed. I was thinking in the shower this morning that even though we didn't find out the sex of the baby, God knows if it is a boy or a girl, God knows how many hairs will be on the baby's head, God knows what he or she will grow up to be, God promises that this is a covenant child that ultimately belongs to Him -- Steve and I just get the honor of raising him or her up to love Him and know His ways.

it's a beautiful thing! enjoy all the kicks!! it's so weird seeing the baby move. i would have these dreams when i was pregnant about seeing every detail of the actual feet or hands or even the face pushing out against my belly (i have such weird dreams during pregnancy!). and when i'm not pregnant now and i get a little gas bubble or something, part of me thinks, "oh, the baby's moving!" that's really weird! (i'm tired right now so you are getting to hear all my weird stories!)
