Rock-a-bye Baby

And I don't mean lullaby. Our baby is a rocker! He is constantly moving, poking, kicking at all hours of the day! I know all you women who have been pregnant are laughing at this girl who thinks she is the only one who gets to go through this, but I am not that dense. I know this is the life of a pregnant woman! I just have to talk about it! And I seriously think my baby might move a bit more than normal! Am I naive?? :) All day! ALL day! What does that mean when he's out of my womb?? Oh dear....

It has been lots of fun watching our little one move body and limbs all over my tummy. Quite strange and yet, such a miracle. :) We had our 6 month appointment yesterday (ACK! 6 months!) and everything went very well. Only time in my life I will be okay to hear I have gained 19 pounds. ACK! Apparently, 19 lbs. at the 24th week is still right in the middle of where I need to be, so I am okay with it. But come on, when anyone hears, "So, you've gained 19 pounds..." your first reaction is "WHAT?!" :) Where did it all go? Hmm. Maybe I shouldn't ask that question...

Anyhoo. Life is full of so much good stuff. :) Jim and I have been very faithful with our nightly walks, averaging about 45 - 60 minutes each walk. It is a great time to laugh and talk and watch Maddie get excited at everything she can see. We feel so blessed with so much, it makes it hard to complain about anything (like heavy budgeting - arg).

Life is good. Thank you, Lord!

I don't know whether to say, "Aw" or "Heh heh" for the "mover and shaker." Welcome to the club. :)

Nineteen pounds is nothing! If it was *ninety* pounds, then you say, "Bad baby for making me eat that last nutter butter . . . box." Always blame things on the babe. :)

If he's moving that much once out you'll know what we (read: Aj) are going through. Maybe in 20 years he and Judah will just sit and play video games for hours like Jim and I used to do. Oh the days I should have been doing homework but spent it exercising my thumbs.
