baby's kicks

Happy President's Day!

I'm particularly excited about today because I don't have classes tonight. That gives me time to catch up on the homework I was unable to finish yesterday. Also, I was able to go to lunch with my friend, Nikki, to celebrate her birthday today which was a fun treat.

So onto the title of this post. Last night the babe was doing barrel rolls like crazy between 9 and 10 pm. Same thing this morning. Then I thought I may have felt the first distinguishable kick but I wasn't sure.

Around 3:00 I felt what was undeniably a kick. It was much stronger than the flick I felt this morning, but still too light to be felt from the outside. The 5 or so minutes surrounding the afternoon kick, the babe was very active. It's such a unique/amazing feeling and it is such a relief to know the baby's developing seemingly well. Hopefully Jon will be able to feel the baby's movements soon. He's eagerly thrown his hands onto my belly when I've said 'the babe is moving' but has yet to be confident he's felt something (there was one instance I'm pretty sure he felt it since he asked 'is that it!?' the second it was happening, but he's since written it off to being my pulse). In the meantime, I'm going to selfishly enjoy these little moments that only I can feel while I can :) What can I say? I'm smug.
