Last night was a first for me. I was super exhausted and laid in bed before 9pm. Before I played Skylar her lullaby, I laid there talking to her. I knew she wasn't sleeping and so I rubbed/poked (LIGHTLY :)!) my belly and all of a sudden she was a baby on crack. She was kicking, punching, rolling around. This made me keep talking to her and every time I would touch my belly, she would continue flipping out. I couldn't help but laugh. It was incredible. I fell even more in love. The more I talked and touched, the more she would move around. This literally went on for like ten minutes. It was so fun, it was so...memorable. I felt close and connected to her. It was great. I finally let her calm down and played her little lullaby for her and we were fast asleep for the night.
Last night I had the most amazing dream. My little girl was here. I was holding her, touching her, playing with her and she was absolutely freaking gorgeous. She had cute little round cheeks, a button nose, dark hair, long legs like her Daddy and I...and just beautiful. I didn't want it to end. The mental image I have is so insanely wonderful.
It has made me even more excited. I know that I still have a few months left but I know how fast a few months can pass. Plus, we ordered her crib and my mom got the bedding and I feel like I need to really start preparing and making sure that I have everything in order before I get too large and uncomfortable and so I am not stressing at the end. I just want to be on top of things and as prepared as I can be. Oh and the other day I got the cutest little saying that we are going to put up on her wall in her room. I am not going to say what it says yet, instead, I will post a picture when we do her room.
