milestones

It may not seem like much, but last night Jon was able to feel the baby kick for the first time.

We had been laying in bed and he was reading. I could tell the baby was active but I knew better than to say anything because for literally weeks he'd throw his hands on my belly only to be disappointed by the lack of movement on the outside. Instead, I had my hand on my belly (as I've done the last few days when I feel kicks) and before I knew it my hand jumped up as the baby wailed on my insides. I quickly grabbed his hand and put it where the baby was.

About 3 or 4 minutes passed. He continued to read. Then, before I could say anything, he quickly turned and looked at me with wide eyes. "That was it--you looked at me right as it kicked." He grinned from ear to ear. Finally. It was a magical moment and I'm so glad we were able to share it so soon (I'm just shy of 18 weeks) in the pregnancy.
