Big Kicks

Tonight is definitely going to be a memorable one for me. It is one that fills my heart with excitement and love.

We had Tara and Wesley over for the UFC fight. We enjoyed some guacamole dip, made kabobs, had some yummy pasta salad. Most of all, we enjoyed great time with great friends. Oh and the fights were good too.

Before we ate dinner, Skylar was kicking up a storm and before I could get anyone to put their hand on my tummy, she stopped. Tara was beyond disappointed. She was so anxious wanting to feel her. Eli then piped up that he has been feeling her a lot. At night when he spoons me, he is sure to keep a hand on my belly. And when I spoon him and have my belly up against his back, he feels her as well. I love that he is feeling her. I think it makes him feel even closer to our little sweetheart.

After dinner we were all sitting on the couch talking and Skylar started going crazy. They weren't little movements, they were HUGE ones. I calmly reached over and grabbed Eli's hand and put it on my belly and soon he was feeling on the outside what I was feeling on the inside. Skylar took a break and when she started up again, I grabbed Tara's hand and boy did she get to feel my little one. Skylar was pushing and kicking and moving. It was unreal. Tara was shocked at how well she could feel her and how much she was moving. It was seriously the neatest experience being able to share it with people that I love so much.

My mom has been trying to feel Skylar for a while now and when she does, she is always sleeping. I called her to let her know that her movements are getting stronger and that Eli and Tara just got done feeling her and she was so frustrated. Tomorrow her plan is for me to lay down until she is able to feel her move! She is so funny and definitely a proud grandma.

I can't believe my little girl is getting big enough and strong enough for others to feel! It's so exciting. I love this. I love being pregnant and it is making me even more excited for March to come when I get to hold her and kiss her!

Can you see her moving yet? I did not see my kids moving much while in utero, but that is because I have an extra layer of fat...

Awww, that's so great. Especially once people can start feeling the kicks from the outside! And yeah, I agree, seeing the kicks from the outside is even more amazing. Sometimes it looked like I had an alien in there when I was further along and Jayla was going crazy LOL
