I keep staring at that fuzzy profile and trying to visualize his features. Is that his daddy’s nose or mine?
This kid is already doing a number on me, and I’m not even to the hard part yet. This last week sleep has become a real challenge. And the back pain that I started feeling in the first few weeks has become much more constant. My bag of accessories keeps increasing. It started out with snacks, water, and various pills to combat whatever malady I encounter throughout the day. I’ve recently added a heating pad, pillow, and maternity belt. This has got to be good practice for carrying a diaper bag.
Joshua started feeling the baby kick a couple of days ago. We read that he wouldn’t be able to feel it for a few more weeks, but he’s continued to try, and it paid off. He has always been excited about the baby, but the ultrasound, and knowing it’s a boy, and feeling him move, has all been good for him to feel more connected with the baby. It also helps that we can call him by name.
