Daddy finally felt you move!

To our little one-
This week has been an exciting one, not just for me, but for your dad also. You have been moving quite a bit for a while and I have come to love the times when I can sit quietly and feel you kick and punch, toss and turn. Each time I feel your body move it I am filled with anticipation to see you face to face, to count your fingers and toes and to kiss your sweet little face.

The reason why this week has been so exciting is that you are now big enough and kicking hard enough that your daddy has also gotten to feel you move. It melts my heart to see his reaction..his face lights up like a small child on Christmas morning, which is then followed by laughter, and amazement. Then he drops to his knees and start talking to you. He tells you how much he loves you, how proud he is of you, how he can't wait to see you and hold you close to himself. To my precious child, you are so lucky to have the earthly daddy that God has picked for to you have. He loves you so much already and he hasn't even seen you yet.

We both long for your arrival and are eager to experience all the changes that your new life will bring. We are down to 12 short weeks! So until then, keep growing strong, enjoy the peace and quiet and know that you are deeply loved!
