Baby kicks


I love feeling our baby kick. Its one of the most amazing feelings to me. I love being reminded that she's really in there, alive and doing well.
Sometimes she's more active at night and its so fun to lay in bed, when the house is all quiet and I can talk and know she can actually hear me. :)

When I'm pregnant I've always made the habit of reading aloud when I read my Bible or any other book I happen to be reading. With this baby, its forced me to always find a quiet place to do my reading, since otherwise, I'm not sure she'd really hear ME over the kids and all the other noise around here.
I can't wait to meet our little daughter; hold her, kiss her and smell her wonderful baby smells, but I'm really trying to enjoy this pregnancy while its here.

I usually feel a sense of panic after our kids have been born - not sure I'm ready for them to face the world. I get worried about the pollution outside, people we might walk by who are smoking, possible accidents happening wherever we are, getting smooshed by their siblings, etc... I know God will take care of her, but its that motherly feeling of "I wish I could put it back in my tummy, where its safe!" that I'm sure you've all experienced. :)

Anyway, this morning I've been feeling her move around in there a lot and it just reminded me of how amazing this whole pregnancy and birth miracle really is!

I loved feeling them kick... The biggest kicks were actually when Emma would hear Nathan preach. So precious! Your girl is blessed to have you as her momma.

The baby kicks are the best! Nothing even comes close to that feeling. Enjoy every moment. :-) I love that you already treasure her. :-)
